if it's unlocked properly, then yes there should be no issues using the data network.

If the device is unlocked, plug in your Vodafone HK SIM and request the service books or have it pushed to you and you should be good to go.

Ya, probably, you'd need the Rogers service books in order to talk over Rogers' network.

I think Rogers will do it for you for $125 (I would assume CAD). Do a quick search.

I just spoke to 2 different Rogers representatives in Tech Support, unfortunately, they do not unlock those device anymore. If you guys know anyone can unlock them with a resonable price, please reply, it's quite urgent. Thanks in advance.

Global unlock through Robbers is $250 try Bongo Wireless www.bongowireless.com they charge $80 as far as I know nobody has been able to unlock the 8700r your better off tracking down an 8700c they seem to be the easier of the 8700 devices to unlock.

If you want a guarantee you need to purchase the device unlocked. Unlocked devices definitely carry a price premium.
