So a relative of mine gave me an htc one m9 locked with sprint, if i'm able to unlock it would I be able to use koodo? i know the frequencies might be different which is why i'm asking this question. IF i am able to make calls at least, would I also be able to enjoy 3g data, 4g data, or even lte?

Sprint is a CDMA carrier. So as far as I'm aware, no, the phone can't be unlocked and you cannot use it with another carrier. Apparently there is a way that involves rooting and flashing some type of software onto the phone, but I don't recommend this as it voids the warranty. You're welcome to try. http://forum.xda-developers.com/sprin...
Your best bet is to purchase the HTC M9 that Koodo sells or a GSM unlocked model that supports 3G frequencies 850/1900 for proper coverage and LTE 1700/2100 if you want LTE.
