For SaskTel customers, it appears you will soon be able to unlock your cellphone for $50 at any point in your contract as long as your account is in good standing, according to documents obtained by MobileSyrup.
The unlock policy applies to all devices, but the document states an iPhone unlock won’t come until Q1 2013.
The price of $50 per unlock is in line with what Rogers and Fido charges its customers. TELUS charges $35 to unlock your device (as long as you’ve been a postpaid customer for three months) and Bell recently introduced unlocking for $75.
SaskTel told us in an email they “have not yet finalized anything on the unlocking” so anything can change from now until we hear an official announcement.
