Hi Calgaryab!

 

The phone won't come with the unlock code right away. But since you'll be buying it at full price, you can request the unlocking right away! Smiley 

 

Just contact us on Facebook/Twitter or call customer service to have it unlocked Smiley

 

Hope this helps!

Hi Calgaryab!

 

There is indeed a $50 unlocking fee for phones purchased both on agreement or at full price.

 

Cheers!

Yes, Fido charges $50CAD for any phones purchased through Fido. Unlocking allows you to use your phone on carriers other than Fido, If you plan to continue to use Fido for the duration of your phone there is no benefit of unlocking.

Having said that, I don't think Fido has the exclusive rights to unlocking your phone, there are other places that can unlock your phone as well. Its your decision to have your phone unlock by Fido or by another source.

I know I can unlock the phone cheaper then 50 and I want to be able to use GSM while I am traveling.

 

Thanks
