    OK so I thought I would share my experience here.
    I bought a 920 from a Rogers retailer in Metrotown Burnaby,BC last night.
    It boots with a Rogers splash screen and says Nokia 920.3 RM - 820 Rogers on the box
    The outright price was 599.99CAD + 12% HST= 671.99CAD
    I went home and phoned Rogers who after some back and forth put me through to the retentions team.
    They agreed that the unlock would be possible as I had bought the handset outright and that the unlock fee would be 50CAD+HST
    However they advised that they do not have any method of taking payment for the unlock other than charging an account. They advised the easiest way to do this would be to buy a prepay sim and top up 60CAD
    I then went back to the Rogers shop to buy a prepay sim and was charged
    95CAD + 12% HST=106.40CAD
    10CAD for SIM
    25CAD for Activation
    60CAD for Topup
    I then trekked back home and got back through the Rogers phone system to get to the retentions team who did the unlock there and then on the phone.
    Total cost including tax
    778.39 CAD

    Now just need to work out if the software can be changed to stock so that I am not dependent on Rogers for software updates.
    That's what I had to do and after all that time and money I may still return the phone. I'm not sure all this effort was worth it as internet sharing and MMS doesn't seem to work with Bell.

    Some guys on XDA mentioned that they only paid 549 for the device from the MS store in Yorkdale. They were told by cellunlocker.net that they should check back in a few weeks to see if they get the unlock codes then.

    yep, that's what my local unlocker said as well it'll take a couple weeks for the phones to be put in the database and then you'll be able to use the online sites. Anyone that is looking go unlock it should wait as the method to do it with Rogers isn't worth the time and effort.

    They only have black in Canada I'm waiting on unlocked yellow, but my mom and aunt got black from rogers and its a tough decision as I'm liking the matte black ALOT too but want yellow I think...
    I can grab one easily for you down here and ship it if you want to work something out...
    Message me if you can through the site so I dont need to post the email if you do want to settle on black!

    I got this confirmation. Rogers will only unlock your phone for 50$ if you've bought it contract-free (month-by-month). This means that if you got it with a contract (ex: hardware upgrade, new customer...), you will NOT be able to unlock the phone as long as the contract is valid.

    In other words, if you plan on buying a Lumia or HTC from another person (eBay, Craigslist...) in order to use with another carrier, make sure the original buyer bought it contract-free. Otherwise, Rogers won't unlock it.

    This might change if 3rd party unlockers get unlock codes, but there is no confirmation of this yet, to my knowledge.

    Cellunlocker.net - #1 Unlock Codes for Network Cell Phone Unlocking Has unlock codes for the Rogers 920s (at least they did for my IMEI). I JUST ordered mine but haven't received it yet, so I can't say for sure if it will even work or anything.

    Cellunlocker may be your best option, but they don't have all the IMEI's in their database. They couldn't find mine (45/2012 week build), but they've been able to find a few from the 44/2012 build week. Hopefully yours is from 44/2012 and they can generate a code for you.

    In my case, I was asked to wait ta week and try again.

    A friend of mine's wife is using it on Sasktel. They unlocked in store using the instructions wpcentral posted. (using a PayGo account, etc) He commented that the MMS issue has been solved by including UI for separate APN settings.

    Indeed. I am surprised that we did not get Lumia 820 in Canada.
