As noted yesterday, Telus now officially unlocks the iPhone starting today, based on a set of requirements and a $50 fee. The Telus website section on unlocking.
I called telus and they want a phone number which the phone was bought with but I dont have that number. It works fine but need to restore iPhone. I wonder how jailbreaking affects this.
This is really a pain in the butt. The Telus website section on unlocking has been updated with information about the iPhone, along with a link to an Apple support page on the process. Called them and registered the IMEI number.
I cant loose the pictures or contacts…. How did you do with Telus with the prepaid plan?
Then, when I put back the Telus sim, I still get no service until I re-sync, then it goes back to Telus. They told me the next time I logged into Itunes it would be unlocked.
Thanks for the update! How do i get it unlocked i am right now not in Canada and not having any account.As noted yesterday, Telus now officially unlocks the iPhone starting today, based on a set of requirements and a $50 fee. My phone shows a Telus icon at the top left of my iphone screen, dose this mean it is still locked??
I just did it today and it requires no computer or itunes, it seems to be done over the air, but you do need an internet connection. Can anybody hel me with the same problem.
I did mine yesterday and I did not have to reset the phone. I have done this and then went to several sites that show my phone as being still locked, this could be false as they also try to sell services to unlock.
Is there someone who can help? I called several times and they would not unlock the phone for me unless I am with Telus and have been with them for 90 days.
Had to Restore my phone though which was no biggie as long as you back it up before. I was waiting for that message so I ended up turning phone off, turning back on, taking the sim card out and then syncing to itunes again.
