    Your title says 8830, but your text says 8800. The 8830 is a CDMA phone in North America. The 8800 is a GSM phone. If your new phone is the 8800, you can probably unlock it. GSM phones typically can be unlocked. CDMA phones typically cannot. An 8830 cannot be unlocked to run on Rogers' GSM network.

    If the 8800 you bought has a password on it, you will need to get that from the previous owner.

    Since I am not familiar with either Rogers or Fido, I will defer to someone who is. In general, you should be able to contact a GSM carrier for an unlock code. I don't know if that general rule applies to Rogers.
