Hey guys,

My friend wants to use her rogers iPhone 5 on fido. I have heard that they both are the same? So is possible to just pop in the fido's SIM card and use it?

Please help..

Thanks in advance :)

Have her walk into Fido and have them demonstrate with a Fido SIM. I've heard it should work.

I've heard that it needs to be unlocked, but I don't live in Canada and can't say for sure. Try a Fido SIM. If it doesn't work, see if Rogers will unlock it for you or just pay for a permanent unlock on eBay. They only cost $5.

Apparently the unlock for rogers cost 150 dollars. That too they are not unlocking iPhone 5 for now.. :(

Did you try eBay ?

Yes.. In fact I even ordered once and they refunded as rogers had just stopped unlocking iPhone 5. They unlock the other iPhones. But the rates are still the same..
