You need to insert another SIM card in it to see if it's unlocked. If it works then you're good. If not you need to buy an unlock code on eBay or call Koodo

Since you mentioned an android it'll be cheaper to get it from eBay. Also you said you got it from Koodo so unless you unlocked it yourself it'll probably be locked but otherwise as Robert said.

I got the unlock code for a Koodo-locked HTC for a twoonie on eBay. Definitely the cheapest option.
If you're travelling to New Zealand before December 1st, buy the unlock code on eBay. If you're travelling after December 1st, get the code free from Koodo on December 1st.
Bon voyage!
Thanks for the info.  One follow-up question:  on Ebay the unlock codes range from $2 to $20.    Any reason not to go for the least expensive one if the seller has positive reviews?

None at all. Put $18 in your pocket.

Heads up, I called to unlock my iPhone cause I'm buying the new one and wants to sell my old one and had to pay $50 to unlock it.

Yes and that's the cheapest for iPhone. Once December 1 comes though it will not cost anything.
