What is an unlocked phone?
An unlocked phone is one that is not linked to any specific cellular network.
For example, when you buy your phone from a mobile provider, you will only be able to use it with that carrier until you unlock it.
Legislation now allows all Canadians to unlock their phones, regardless of the original carrier. Unlocking your phone means you are able to use it with any carrier, provided that your phone is compatible with its network and bands.
When your phone is unlocked, you can insert a SIM card from any mobile provider to use your phone on their network.
