    Unfortunately I don't know of any sites that have the unlock codes yet for the Priv, you may be SOL unless you go into the Rogers and have them unlock it for you. I mean it'll cost you more than the unlock sites, but they by law have to unlock it for you (but they can charge to unlock).


    You may be able to find a kiosk in the mall or something that already has the unlock codes though?

    friend of mine who is a rogers customer and account holder. He already set up his new plan and is waiting to receive the phone. He called around to different stores and they didn't want to sell it to him. Only to "new" accounts / customers which is too bad

    I took a coworker who is a rogers customer with me there and told them I wanted to buy outright, they were a little hesitant, but went ahead with the deal.

    I spoke to Erika at B&A store and she said no problem with cancelling the reservation and buying it from them. She was extremely helpful and also told me that there was a live model at Exchange Tower.

    Awesome, maybe I'll try that out if the unlockunit.com site works for you! Thanks!

    Oh they had stock, i cancelled my Rogers purchase yesterday because i wanted a device with Wireless charging. Between that and having it unlocked, i justified to myself spending the $100.00 on the ShopBlackberry version (plus the first to get updates helped too)

    Rogers is suppose to unlock it for you if you request it right away.

    It's the law.

    I call non-sense on your claim that Rogers Wireless will only sell the BlackBerry Priv to new customers. I bought one in-store today.

    Guys, I inserted my fido sim in the rogers phone, and it works fine! Did not even need to unlock it, and this website unlockunit is bad, their customer service is bad and they haven't sent anything. Do not use them. I know its first day and it takes time for these guys to figure out codes, but I was told 20 minutes from them.

    I've used them before with good results.

    Fido is owned by rogers. That's why. Try inserting a bell or Telus simcard and then you won't be able to use it.

    Rogers can unlock, subject to their terms & conditions: http://www.rogers.com/web/support/wi...setLanguage=en

    Unless things have changed with the retail side, in the past an outright sale of a device won't gain much commission for a salesperson/store. New customers get the most commission, followed by existing customers who recommit to a new contract. I've heard old stories where stores would get customers to "cancel", but then sign up brand-new to take advantage of deals and the commission.

    If you buy any device outright in canada, you have right to have it unlocked by which ever carrier you bought it from RIGHT AWAY.

    It is the law.
