I was looking at the Z10 Unlocking directions.....

 

  • there is no mention of a fee.  Does this mean to unlock a Blackberry.... it's FREE!
  • is the directions for unlocking the Q10 the same as the Z10?
  • how do I unlock the phone with a Telus SIM card

It's 35$ charged on your next monthly bill to unlock any Telus phone that's been active on their network for at least 90 days. You can get your unlock code by reaching *611, 1-866-558-2273 or reach @TELUSsupport on Twitter

Can you clarify what you mean by "active"? I have a telus phone that i received with a 2 yr plan but I'm not using the phone. Are you suggesting if I never use it, it can't get unlocked after 90 days? My impression was that it could get unlocked after 90 days of an active account (whether you use the phone or not).

Phone must be active, thats one of the conditions to get it unlocked.. sorry, system in which telus works, in order to get phone totally unlocked and without any error. Thats why.

Can a phone be transferred on the Telus network? Ie. if I have a Telus phone that I'm not using, can I pass it to my husband to use if he gets a Telus SIM card and plan?

Yes you can transfer another telus line onto a used telus phone

Definitely, you can just purchase a simcard that would cost you $10 from any telus store, if your husband already has a number with Telus, you can get your services transferred to the new phone. if not you can get a new account. There is no activation fee at all.
