Its locked to rogers(canada).
how it it locked?
PSN Account locked?
did you try safe mode and Restore the PS Vita System(this will format the vita to default setting for the FW i is on, removing all the data old user data on it), you might also need to format the Memory card as well
is the 3g locked?
run the Network Operator app (you might need a new sim card to use 3g)
you might not be able to use different networks with the 3g. you might be stuck with the the one Sony lets you use
3g vitas are unlockable now? Can you point me to the right direction?
Here where i am, at&t is the only option. Which i never used. I dunno why i bought a 3g vita anyway. No i don't think there is a way to unlock it, but maybe with cfw hacks or mods?
its 3g locked, I have a sim card and it does show ROGERS 3G on the signal bar. When I launch the network app and press Go to Rogers Website it says cannot connect to server.
Sorry for the ignorant post but.
Where is the SIM port of the 3G Vita even located? o.O
Mine is a 3G one, but i live in Venezuela and, it's obviously going to be locked to at&t. Didn't know there was a way to unlock them at all.
Check the left side of the vita. There should be a slot to insert the sim card. Least on mine it is.
Oh, Thank you very much.
How could i have missed that? XD
Anyway, these are region locked and CFW doesn't circumvent this. Correct?
From what i know, this seem to be the case, sony locked it to only at&t providers, and henkaku or any other previous hacks have not been one to change this. I'm sure the vita assets are unrelated to the 3G ones, but let hackers be the choice of that.
EU 3G models are not carrier locked.
@OP as of right now there's no way to unlock a 3G vita as far as I'm aware of.
Aw man, that's shitty. Why make it locked in the first place?
IDK for sure if henkaku can enable an unlock but if it's possible I'm sure henkaku will be needed. If I had the 3g model I'd dig into it myself.
I'm not entirely sure, but it might be tied to the fact that each country here in Europe has atleast 5 different providers and seeing as it was distibuted almost everywhere it might have had been a better idea to ship them unlocked rather than make 100 different models of it.
On the other hand the US shares providers across all of the country, so AT&T struck a deal with sony to make more $$$
Just stumbled upon this thread, but the CRTC has decided that all devices must be unlocked free of charge upon request, starting December 1, 2017:
So starting Dec 1, this should be free.
Even ps vita?
The rule says *devices* not *phones* so, yes. We might have to gang up and force Rogers ("Sony has to do it!" "No, Rogers!" "No, Sony!") to do it, but yes, if they will not do it, I will organize an official complaint procedure with the CRTC. I should still have the sales slip from way back when (it was on firmware 1.69 when I bought it).
Contact me if they do it, I'm interested too
Just talked to Rogers, they're saying that my IMEI number isn't in their system and that they can't unlock. just calling Sony now.

The Rep I talked to was from the U.S. after carefully explaining, and re-explaining what I wanted and being put on hold 3 times, I was told there was nothing they could do, and nobody there I could talk to to unlock my PS Vita. will get back to Rogers now.
Finished a rogers website-chat, with a Rogers rep, was again told they couldn't do anything as the I.M.E.I. number isn't in their system. but this time, he sent an email to the "Unlock Team" which should get back to me in 24 hours.
Finished a Facebook-chat also, the rep says S.O.L. transcript follows:
Kormakur, I understand what the code says however as mentioned the device is not locked to us. Rogers was the only carrier authorized to use the Vita on our network so it is not locked to us. You may need to reach out to other providers to see if they actually support the vita as we are the only one that support the Vita but that doesn't mean it is locked to us. Rogers had an exclusive deal with Sony to be the only carrier capable of using the Vita. - Chrystal
I submitted a ticket with CCTS.
Update: CCTS Rejected the ticket, but I got a call from "the office of president" at Rogers, asking about details on the ticket, telling me they'll look into it and call me back.
