Default Lumia 920 - Unlock Guide

Hi Folks,

Let's concentrate all conversation about 'how to get my Lumia 920 unlocked' to help everyone!


Rogers Lumia 920:
Get locked Lumia in any store, and pay $50 in the store to unlock it.
It took me 2 hours, and the store employee had to talk with 3 different people on the Roger's customer service.
I've paid full price and got a prepaid sim card. To unlock, I had to put $50 in the simcard to able the customer service get it to use on the "unlock fee".
I've try unlock.canadagsm.ca and http://cellunlocker.net/. No success. Only in Rogers store.
[UPDATE] CanadaGSM sent me an email saying that they started to unlock Lumia 920 from Rogers


Lumia 920 bought from Toronto's Microsoft store
Is locked but http://cellunlocker.net/ has the codes to unlock (We read some users using that, but some fail).


Lumia 920 AT&T
So far, no way to unlock them.
[UPDATE] A webpage is saying they can do it: http://cilianunlock.com/codigos-noki...-atat-usa.html


Unlocked Black Lumia 920 from Expansys

Aren't the Expansys and GSMNations ones the International versions of the phones - i.e. don't have the bands to support LTE in NA?

Just tried to unlock a rogers model bought from the Microsoft store at Yorkdale with cellunlocker.

They couldn't unlock it.

My sister has a Rogers account so I'm going to talk to her tomorrow and see if she can call in and do anything.

Yes, as far as I know, there is no LTE in international versions sold by Expansys and GSMNations.

I've unlocked mine in Royal Plaza Rogers Store (close the union station, Toronto Downtown).
The store employees there know how to do it now.
It takes some time, but they did.

Good Luck!

Have any of you guys ask GSM Nation about the phone? It said 3G/4G: 1700/2100, but according to Nokia global, the international does not contain the AWS band. As you can see from Welectronics and Expansys, they don't list that AWS band. I think there is a mistake here. Anyway, make sure you contact them first before purchasing the phone as we have different model with different active frequencies.

http://unlock.canadagsm.ca won't even allow me to put through the order on the 920.

Do you have a rogers account? Is there anything special you told them to get them to do it?
