How to unlock your cell phone for free

Unlocking your cell phone just got a whole lot easier and cheaper!

With the new CRTC Wireless Code coming into effect on December 1st, 2017, Canadian cell phone carriers are now banned from charging a fee for unlocking any phone and all new phones must be sold unlocked.

Previously the unlocking fees charged directly by your service provider typically rang in at $50, but there was some variance among providers. In 2016 alone, those fees added up to $37.7M in revenue for the cell phone companies which came from 943,000 phone unlock requests - an average of $40 per device.

Today, all you have to is contact them and they will either unlock your device for you or instruct you how to do so yourself completely free of charge.
