I unlocked my Rogers Lumia 710 with CellUnlocker.net.
It was a pretty fast process and it worked great. I don't know how it will work with Mobilicity, but I'm assuming it's the same process. It cost $16.99 to unlock it.

I have tried to purchase an unlock code from several online and cell phone shops here in Vancouver but they all same the same thing," not available for Mobilicity yet".
Mobilicity is not releasing the codes for the Lumia 710 even though they advertise that all there phones are either unlocked or can be unlocked by third party providers. I bought my phone on the assumption that I would have no problem unlocking it and be able to use it with other networks while abroad.
Customer service at Mobilicity still claims that all there phones can be unlocked by third party providers however this is not true with the Lumia 710 at the moment.
I have contacted Nokia and they claim that the 710 was unlocked when Mobilicity recieved them and that Mobilicty were the ones to have locked the phone and therefore only Mobilicty can unlock the phone legally.
What a mess eh, really all Mobilicty needs to do to avoid looking like liars is to release the damn codes into the market place.
PS I paid full retail for this phone 249.99 with an outright purchase.

I just want to say I feel your frustration. I am in exactly the same situation. Misled, if not outright lied to, at the time of my purchase. Repeatedly stonewalled, snubbed and generally sneered at by Mobilicity's wretched 'Customer Service' reps regularly since, and my attempts to register an acknowledged complaint denied. It is impossible to talk to anyone who can help. I have grown to loathe this company and regret bitterly ever dealing with them. And yes, Nokia confirms they can do nothing either because Mobilicity themselves added the codes and will not release them. What kind of a corporate policy is that?
Did you find any solution?
And, if anyone else reads this thread, from my heart: AVOID Mobilicity. They are the WORST!

I finally was able to find a place in the Crystal Mall near Metro Town that was able to unlock my Lumia 710 using some random key generator or something. He had the phone for almost a week but it is now unlocked and I have consequently dumped Mobilicity and switched to Wind. I would say overall Wind is a much more reliable service and data moves faster but Mobilicity had a slightly better plan.
