I just learned this morning of BellMTS's little secret since December 1, 2017 that they wish the majority of their mobility customers didn't know.

"As of December 1st all unlocks are free of charge. In order to complete this request please respond to this email with the cell phone type and with the IMEI, this can be located on your phone by dialing *#06#. Once we receive this information from you, we would be happy to complete the unlock.

Please contact Bell MTS if we may assist you further. We are always happy to help you."

This was actually decently published both when the ruling came out, leading up to and even as recent as today. Bell did contest it only applied to currently active devices but has just relented on that.

The other piece is all devices, even those under contract, sold after Dec 1, 2017 must be unlocked at the time of sale. It reality knowing the change was coming lots of devices sold before Dec 1 were unlocked at the time of sale.
