Default Anywhere around the GTA to unlock a 7290?

Please Login to Remove!

I've searched through the forums and came across a thread saying every shop in PMall wouldn't do it instantly, so then, is there anywhere that would do it instantly at a low cost (around 15-30)? I was thinking maybe I could give FMP a shot, but figured that I'd best get some advice from people living around here on these forums.

Thanks in advance.

Btw, the reason I don't want to do it online is because I hear "BongoWireless +100 or nothing" from some posts, yet I find sites that unlock for 20-30. So I'm unsure if those are scams of some sort. If someone can direct me to a trustworthy remote unlocking website, maybe I'll do that too..

GSMphonesource has always come through for me though I think the fee has gone up a bit.

Bongo wireless shows $50 CDN and they only need the USB cable and you download the software from them to do it yourself.
I used Bongo to unlock my old Moto SLVR. It was pretty straight forward.
