No you'll have to pay Telus yourself to end your contract

Same with Bell/Virgin too. Retailers might have.gift card offers on new Koodo phones to help offset the cost of switching.

Telus and Koodo are still different companies so yes, you'll have to contact Telus beforehand unless you want to port over your number, then just come to Koodo and set up an account with the same number and your Telus bill will automatically cancel and arrive.
Does that mean I can transfer to koodo and keep paying down my contract just to get koodos great plans?

It is usually cheaper just to pay off the old provider and move to a new one.

No. That means you can transfer/port your number to Koodo, but you still have to pay all the remaining charges and early termination/cancelation fee(if any) to Telus to end your contract.

Ken, try transfering your contract to someone else by giving them some money? Try sites like this : http://www.cellplandepot.com/ or find some specific one for your region.
