One of the biggest downsides to the wireless industry in Canada is the hassle you need to endure to unlock your smartphone for use on a different carrier. Until recently, if you purchased a new smartphone on contract your carrier would not provide you the coveted unlock code until you completed your full term contract.
Today, Rogers decide to bring another "first" to the Canadian wireless industry by announcing a new unlock policy that will be implemented in March 2013. Under the new policy, you'll be able to now unlock your device for $50 (same fee as before) after 90 days of service. Devices purchased at full-price/no contract will continue to be available to unlock immediately.
This unlock policy will also encompass their sub-brands of Fido & Chatr.
