Troubles unlocking my Rogers Z10
I'm hoping someone here may be able to help.
I purchased a rogers Z10 a few days ago and am unlocking it to work on telus.
The unlock code i was supplied by a reputable unlocking company doesn't work.
The IMEI is correct, its definately a rogers phone. I emailed the company and they finally responded in the middle of the night saying the code is correct to that IMEI.
I enter the code in (8 digits) and it says it invalid. I tried it twice just in case I mistyped it. Same problem. I don't want to try anymore as I don't want to perma-lock my phone.

I'm having this same problem. Have used 3 reputable unlockers as well and no luck. Called Rogers and am exchanging my unit. When the new one arrives, I'll be using BlackberryCodeSource, seems like they are having the most success when it comes to Rogers z10 codes.

OR you guys can wait until March when Rogers brings out there 90 days unlocking policy. This will let you unlock the phone after 90 days for $50. You will not lose warranty or anything this way.
Rogers will allow customers to unlock phones after 90 days, still costs $50 | MobileSyrup.com

You guys are using wrong unlock codes. The ones for the old blackberry phones will not work with BB10 phones. The algorithm is different, so even if you wrote down the right code from them, it will not work on BB10 phones. Try crackberry's unlocking site, which works with BB10 devices.

Now if you bought the phone outright = around 460.00 plus tax then of course you can have it unlocked after the 90 day policy comes into effect instead of waiting the full 2-3yr contract.

My Telus phone came unlocked from day one. No need to use unlocking service. Is this just for the ones that are pre ordered? Or are the ones purchased in stores locked from Telus.

No one can void your warranty for unlocking your phone, that would be illegal.
They may be able to decline warrantying a peticular issue that is not a warrantable defect, but say if the phone bricked while you were unlocking, who in their right mind would go to get a replacement and say the phone bricked when I was unlocking it using a non carrier unlock code?

I have used a previous unlock company, been around for years and yet despite 2 emails asking what they are doing, nothing came back. Went to crackberry unlock and yes paid 45 dollars but I am off to the states next month. And it's vetted by crackberry.com so I do feel comfy about that. Now what would be neat is that for every crackberry unlock team purchase they send you a micro sim adaptor, cos I needed to get one of them

Try another service providers sim into it like obviousl rogers not bells and see for 100% if its unlocked, but apparently it appears it is for you.
Man that is awesome if it is and right from a pre-order from the carrier.
