I am annoyed and confused as to why there is a 90-day waiting period to unlock a phone. I was going to upgrade my phone to an LG G4 (meaning I'd sign a new 2-year contract), but they refuse to unlock my phone and I'm going home to the states in a month.
Luckily for me I can buy my phone on Amazon which comes unlocked. I just don't understand why this policy is in place? Especially for customers who are RE-signing a contract.
It's bad enough that Fido has such limited phone options, but now this?
Has anyone had any luck getting around this ridiculous policy?

Solved! Go to Solution.
My current phone is a Nexus 5 and is already unlocked. However, the battery on it needs to be recharged 3-4 times in a day to even be functional and it constantly freezes. The phone is essentially almost dead.
I didn't realize this was implemented by the CRTC. I still think its a terrible policy, but I guess I understand.
I wish Fido sold the newer Nexus phones.
