    It would be helpful if you gave us the actual STOP error that you were receiving in the BSOD, that could at least provide indication of where the problem is. Make sure if you uninstall iTunes to reinstall it that you also remove the Apple Mobile Device Support software, and remove all of the iPod/Bonjour services as well. A strict uninstall of iTunes leaves more than its fair share of bits and pieces hanging all over the computer.

    I've already answered this question. No it will not be.

    Look at Locating iPhone wireless carriers it clearly shows that each carrier in canada sells iPhones that are locked to that carrier.

    The only "unlocked" iphones from Canada are sold directly from Apple and cost more because they are not carrier subsidised.

    Rogers owns Fido, but they run it as a standalone company. Maybe that is why you can use a fido card. Or maybe you are wrong about it being a rogers iPhone originally.

    iPhone 3GS $549 + tax
    iPhone 4 16GB $659 + tax
    iPhone 4 32GB $779 + tax

    These are the commitment free (factory unlocked) prices in Canada. You can order these online or via an Apple store.

    Any other iPhone sold in Canada will be carrier locked.
