I have a sim card from my Nexus 4, can I just pop it in the new phone?

Only Telus will, you would need to unlock the phone from Bell

Brilliant... And no, I'm not even gonna go near jailbreaking; that never ends well. Okay, thanks for all the info.

Yeah, cheap third party unlocks for iPhones don't really exist. If you're willing to invest in a newer iPhone instead, I think that would be a better move.

They exist from time to time. I've used www.daxgsm.com before. They used to sell $30 Telus/Koodo unlocks before (when Koodo used to charge $50). Their current cheap unlocks are for Rogers/Fido ($28.50). Bell/Virgin is $95, so not worth it.

It helps with the grey market sales a lot. Rogers iPhones are the most abundant where I live and therefore have the lowest resale value. So it's a good deal for me to buy Rogers phones (for now, anyways).
