Pharos Traveler 137 -- unlocking

by ShadowScorpion    May 10, 2013, 3:38 PM

Hello all,

I purchased a Pharos Traveler 137 off eBay with the intention of using it with my Telus service. However... I had the misfortune of getting the only version of the phone that is SIM locked... the CBW one.

And that's where things get sticky. I contacted CBW several times to try and obtain the code, but they basically told me to piss off and that they wouldn't supply me the code. I also contacted Pharos to see if they would have more luck than I did getting the code from CBW, but that was futile as well.

Third-party unlocking options are pretty much inexistent for this phone because of it's rarity, and the SIM unlocking attachments also didn't help.

I brought the phone to a place in my town that supposedly specialize in phone unlocking and even they couldn't do it.

Is there an unlocking option I missed? Or is there anyone working at CBW who would be willing to get me the code? I love the phone, and it kind of pisses me off that it's nothing more than a paperweight.
