As far as my understanding you won't be sold a phone unless you intend on getting Koodo services. Even if the store did indeed sell you a phone it would be locked to Koodo and wouldn't work on Telus. So, you wouldn't be able to unlock it without having Koodo services so I don't think you can now that I think about it....correct me if I'm wrong.

He would definitely be able to unlock it, just not from Koodo, which is not worth it unless it's an iPhone. I recommend cellunlocker.net, they're my preferred site.

You would have to buy the prepaid phone for the prepaid price nomatter what as the lower retail price is only for postpaid customers with an account. Then get the unlock code from a 3rd party site like Johnathan suggested or GSMLIBERTY.COM is also another great one.
You would be able to buy a prepaid phone from Koodo, to use on Telus network. It would not require to be unlocked (at the prepaid price, which is double the Koodo member cost on some models). My recommendation: Consider switching to Koodo. With the referral, the amazing plans, and the amazing tab options. Its a no-brainer really. Throw in one of the amazing.gift card offers, and you could walk away with a very good phone, a great plan, and even a.gift card to spend on other things as well(hurry before march 31st)..

As a rule the only phones bought from either Koodo or Telus that are guaranteed to work with Koodo and Telus without unlocking are the iPhones all others usually need to be unlocked with some exceptions. Also this was already marked as answered so there's no need to respond or posts marked answered already.

Only Android devices probably need unlocking. WP8 and BB10 devices require no unlocking.
