Yes, once your contract is fulfilled they will unlock it for an additional $50, assuming your account is in good standing (no outstanding bills).

If you paid full price, then Fido would have agreed to unlock it 3 months ago when you bought it. Just call them now and request the unlock. They will charge you $50 if you qualify and then do the unlock over the phone.

It can also be done via chat, email and in most of our stores now.

So no free unlock even if it was bought full price from Fido?

 

always more money going into Fido's pocket...!

Hi there DawnMM,

 

The code was supposed to be given to you verbally over the phone once you paid the 50$ unlock fee.

iPhone unlocks don't use an unlock code. The unlock should have been performed by the Fido rep while the customer was still on the phone with them.
