Rogers/Fido have instituted a new handset unlocking policy which allows eligible owners of the iPhone to have their handsets unlocked for a $50 fee. According to an iPhone in Canada report, customers wanting to take advantage of the unlocking service must have an account in good standing, and have paid the unsubsidized cost for the device at least 30 days prior or have finished their contract. In addition, the device to be unlocked must be listed in their equipment history. The report indicates that the unlocking service is handled by Rogers Customer Care, and that once set up, the user simply needs to restore the device and it will be unlocked via iTunes.
