    Hi folks,

    Just landed a wind q10... need it unlocked. any advice where i can get it done for cheap?
    I'm used to the free legacy unlocks but it looks like this bb10 stuff is a different beast with prices in the $30-$40 range.... I'm looking to spend no more than $10 is possible.

    Any advice appreciated!

    PM me if you feel you need to. Thanks in advance!

    Moved you to the Unlocking subforum to try and help you with that.

    quickphoneunlock.com got popular for a minute, and IIRC, they were charging $20?

    What about telling Wind you're going on a nice little trip and need your phone unlocked for a local SIM? Canadian carriers don't unlock phones for free in such situations?

    For a few weeks, it seemed like everybody and their mother was recommending this site for its quick turnaround time and relatively low price. This was around the time the Z30 had just come out, and CB unlocking was...faltering.

    Do you understand what the slang "for a minute" means?

    back on track here-

    someone said that unlock code replublic . com has unlock codes for cheap... $7.29 cdn actually.

    so, I sent them my stuff... but in my haste I didn't realize that there are complaints online about their legitimacy as they have popped up on scam-alert forums claiming they take your $ and disappear.

    Now, I did pay with paypal ... so I'm hoping like a nave and silly boy that I didn't get duped...

    either way, It's been 12 hours and no unlock code yet... so I'm still looking for options

    Just noticed this thread from checking the WIND forum. If you haven't found an unlock service, did you check on WIND itself, presuming you have a WIND account. Their policy is to provide the unlock code for $10.00 after 6 months ownership, however when I bought my Z10, I was able to get an unlock code after about 4 months (and I may have been able to get one earlier, that was the first time I tried).

    they wanted $30 and 30 days.

    Needless to say, I found an unlocker online, I was out $28 and 24 hours.

    I got my legacy BlackBerry 9360 unlocked last year after 3 months at Wind.. $10 charge. Haven't checked on BlackBerry 10 phones yet.
