Hey Guys!

 

I just saw this and I thought I'd update this in case anyone else comes across it. Smiley Here is the current unlocking policy from Fido.ca: 

 

If you have purchased a Fido device from us, you will be able to unlock it directly with Fido.

 

  • To unlock your device, your account must be in good standing and must satisfy one of the following criteria:
    • If you received a rebate associated with a Fido agreement on your Fido device, that device must have been registered in your account more than 90 days ago.
    • If you personally purchased your device from Fido and did not receive any rebate on it, then it must be registered in your account.
    • If you purchased your device from a third party, it must have been registered in your account more than 90 days ago.
  • A $50 fee (plus applicable taxes) applies. It will appear on your next invoice or will be deducted from your Prepaid balance.
  • Unlocking your device via Fido will not void your manufacturer’s warranty.
  • Only Fido devices can be unlocked by Fido. If you have an unlocked device from another carrier, see how to configure it to work with Fido.
  • Unlocking your device will not terminate your Fido service or Fido Agreement, all aspects of your service remain unchanged.

To place a request to have your device unlocked you can reach out to us on Facebook or Twitter!

 

Hope this helps!

Re: i phnone 4s

Option 1: Wait out the rest of your 3 year contract. Then pay Fido $50 and they will unlock it for you. Visit India then.

 

Option 2: Sell your Fido phone and use the proceeds to buy an unlocked unit directly from Apple, then visit India.

 

Option 3: pick up a cheap phone and SIM in India. Leave your iPhone in Canada and use the other in India.
