    Hi Everyone,
    I am with Telus in Canada and just got the 5s. But Telus won't unlock the phone for me in the first 3 months.
    My issues is I am traveling to the US on Monday for work and I normally pop a US SIM in my phone for while I am there.
    Is there another option to get this phone unlocked besides using my Carrier to unlock it?

    Thanks
    Chris

    Well that's not an option since I already have the phone. So I will wait the 3 months.

    There are tons of 3rd party companies that do this. They usually charge more than you carrier though.

    You can find a third party iPhone unlock service for about $5 which isn't bad.

    $5 is probably the price for an att unlock. It'll be more for the Canadian carriers. Prices change often for the Canadian carrier unlocks via 3rd party.

    Does unlocking a new iPhone 5s void the Warranty at all? Would Apple care if we returned a phone for repair under warranty and discovered it was unlocked by a third party online company?

    Many thanks! Any recommendations where to get the unlock from?

    I think you'll find that a Telus unlock will probably cost you between $75 and $150. More for Bell. Via official carrier methods it's $35 and $50 for Rogers.

    No it does not... I worked for AT&T for ages and it doesn't... Neither does your AppleCare+

    I paid $0.60 for my unlock

    If you could send me a PM with who you used to unlock the phone.
    I would really like to get mine unlocked and use it in the states when I leave on Monday, instead of going back to an older Blackberry for the trip and having to set it up just for 1 week of use.

    Thanks
