If you have an iPhone from Rogers which is restricted by the network service provider, you will have to unlock it before you can use a different SIM or connection with the same phone. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to unlock Rogers iPhone. If you want, you can do it in a legal way or you can also take a shortcut by jailbreaking it. But jailbreaking might be a risky thing and we always recommend novice users to stay away from it. There are also other options such as “Third Party” unlocking services i.e. cellunlocker.net that can do that job for you for a minimal fee. Now let’s take a look into all these processes.
