Telus To Unlock Its Devices In Mid February For $50?

Carriers locking down the devices in their line-up is a common practice for some time now and it even became the rule. Anyone buying a carrier offered handset is expecting it to be locked down to the operator but lately operators have started offering unlock solutions, some for free, some for a smaller or bigger fee.

BGR reports that Canadian carrier Telus will start unlocking almost all the devices in its line-up starting February 15, 2011. The unlocking process will not be free though: besides being a customer on a contract, you’ll have to pay $50 in order to receive the unlocking code for your handset which will set it free, allowing you to jump ship and join another carrier. How do you find this offer? Would you pay $50 for an unlock code or should carriers unlock your smartphones for free? After all, you’ve signed a contract for a period of time.
