According to leaked internal documents, Bell and Virgin Mobile will start unlocking off contract iPhones starting today, reports MobileSyrup. Unfortunately, the unlocking service comes at a ridiculous fee of $75.

First, this will be “launched in phased approach” and to have your iPhone unlocked via Bell or Virgin you’ll need to fork over $75. This can only be accomplished by calling Bell’s Credit & Prevention or via Virgin Care.

Criteria for Unlock:
- Must own iPhone outright (all models supported, Bell and Virgin)
- Must not be on contract
- Must be a post-paid Virgin Mobile or Bell Mobility customer
- $75 onetime payment via Credit Card

The site also notes that as part of "the next Phase in 2013" the carriers will look to "expand the eligibility guidelines."
