    I have the Nokia Lumia 920 with Rogers however my television service provider is Bell Satellite TV.

    Because of this I cannot download the Bell TV apps for my PVR because I'm using a Rogers wireless device (despite paying for both).

    If I unlock my 920 but continue to use it on Rogers, can I download the carrier locked apps for bell?

    Any assistance on this topic would be beneficial.

    Thank you,

    I bought my Lumia 920 from Rogers, unlocked it, and connected it to the Bell Mobility network. I was able to download and install the Bell Remote PVR app from the Microsoft Store.

    I want/need to stay on Rogers though. Although it looks like I could unlock it, put in a bell SIM card, download the apps then put my Rogers SIM card back in to continue using my service.

    I don't see how the app could stop working after it is downloaded if it detects the Rogers network so this should work.

    Thank you for the info! Very much appreciated.

    Hello, I have a Rogers 920, unlocked it, and now using it with Telus. When I go in app Store, the Telus section magically shows up.

    The store selects which operator section you see based on the SIM card. My completely unbranded and factory unlocked Lumia 710 & 920's both had the Orange Apps available because I have an Orange SIM.I didn't see any apps disappear when removing the SIM, although the Orange Selections section vanished, but I don't think they update without a valid SIM.
