Hey 350Rocket,

Sorry to hear about the timing issues with getting the phone unlocked.. I know how you feel, and trusting Telus with long distance charges is a dance with the devil!

I've unlocked my phone using the service provided by MobileXpressCanada.com, Fast Canadian Unlock Codes., and everything seems to be working fine for me. My method seems to be different than yours, so I must warn you to use my method with caution. From what I understand, if the wrong combination or process is done a certain number of times, you may lose the ability to unlock your phone (phone or sim gets hard-locked I believe).

Here's what I did:

1- Power phone on with accepted SIM card
2- Select the dial pad
3- Dial 2945#*710# and press send
4- Dial network unlock code at prompt
5- Select unlock

After that it should say something like, "phone is not personalized", and every subsequent entering of 2945#*710# will show that message as well.

After that you should be free to plop in any other sim card (tested mine with an active Roger's SIM and it works perfectly).

I hope that helps!
