There are no permanent Bell iPhone unlocking solutions available at this time. Check out Gevey SIM, that may be your only option.
I know that Bell Mobility does not unlock the iPhone, unlike Telus and Rogers.
There have been websites around for some time that offer "IMEI unlocks" for supported networks and Bell Canada has always been off their lists of supported carriers. I've noticed that recently some of these companies (eg. officialiphoneunlock.co.uk) are offering unlocks on Bell iPhones. Just wondering if anyone here has tried it or if it's just another scam?
As I'm sure you know, no Gevey SIM option exists for the iPhone 4 running on the latest baseband firmware (included with iOS 5.1.1).
I understand the issues at play here and am interested to see if anyone has tried this IMEI unlocking method for Bell Canada. This unlock method has been around for a good while for AT&T and many European carriers and I've spoken to people who have had success there. Bell is a recent addition and am interested to see if anyone has used it with success.
There are no IMEI options for BELL iPhone that work; I promise.
Sell your phone, buy an unlocked one. The difference in price will be your "cost to unlock" and this would be a permanent solution with no ramifications
I would trust WorldIrc on this one; if Bell doesn't want to allow IMEI unlocks then it's going to be next to impossible to get your IMEI added to the database. There are lots of unlocking scams going around the internet. Is this a reputable company? When I called up Rogers to inquire about it, the CSR actually Googled "iPhone unlock free" or something and suggested that I go to a scammy website! So lots of people get taken in by these things.
If it's a company that you've done business with before you might want to reach out to them and see what they're on about...I'd certainly be interested in hearing. I've heard of people temporarily offering IMEI unlocking services but they usually get shut down pretty fast.
