Bell offers free phone unlocking for all following protests
Feb 04, 2018

For more than 30 years, Brian Clemence spent his winters chiselling blocks of snow, carving intricate sculptures for Ottawa's Winterlude festival.

But for a few days last week, Clemence's final sculpture stood unfinished at the corner of Bank Street and Fifth Avenue in the Glebe.

Bell has expanded its unlocking policy so that anyone with a cellphone locked to its network can get the device unlocked for free — as long as it's not associated with a fraudulent or delinquent account.

Previously, Bell only offered free unlocking for current and former customers in response to new regulations banning unlocking fees.

The telecom's original policy sparked criticism because it excluded anyone who never signed up with Bell, but had acquired a second-hand phone that happened to be locked to its network.
