I purchased this TMobile branded phone from a Canadian reseller but it says it's locked to the TMobile network. It says I have to use it for 40 days with this number but it doesn't have a TMobile number.any idea how to unlock this for Canadian usage ?

To be eligible for a SIM unlock, you must be a T-Mobile USA customer and meet all of the SIM Unlock Policy requirements.

You could always try a third party unlocking service from a cellphone repair place.

if they advertised it as unlocked then i would contact them to return it for one that is. TMO wont be able to unlock it unless you are the original purchaser and have met all the criteria needed.
