The correct information for unlocking is:
Device unlocking applies to TELUS postpaid and prepaid SIM-based devices that operate on our Mike, and 4G networks. For subsidized devices, you must ensure that your device has been on the TELUS network for a minimum of 90 days and that your account is up to date and in good standing. If you have purchased your phone outright or do not have an outstanding Device Balance, the device can be unlocked immediately. A one-time fee will apply.
A $35 fee will be applied to your TELUS account.
