    Are Petro-Canada phones unlocked??

    just one question
    the phones that are available with Petro-Canada are they unlocked?
    Can these phones be used with Rogers or Fido?
    has anyone tried switching the sim cards...?

    Thanks

    I bought a 1208 about a year ago and it worked just fine with both Rogers and FIDO SIM cards, so I can say the 1208 is unlocked out of the box.
    Tracfone W175g is IMPOSSIBLE to flash. If you don't want to use it with Trac, it's WORTHLESS. Stop PM'ing me!

    I used one a few years ago and it was unlocked also.

    Can't say as to the current models.

    If you haven't concluded yet, their phones are unlocked (but branded with the Petro-Can logo at startup time). I got the Nokia 2760 almost 2 years ago, and yes it works fine on Fido.

    Crap. That's what I was afraid of. I will get the 2680 just to get my wife onto Petro-Can's service, but I was hoping to eventually get her a different handset and use the 2680 on Fido.

    Yup, the Nokia 2680 slider is LOCKED. Just got it for my wife and tested my Fido SIM--it asks for a "Registration Code". Otherwise, the phone has a really nice, strong slide mechanism! Impressive for what is intended to be a basic phone.
