selling old samsung phone

I’d like to sell my old Samsung A8 phone

I reset it to factory settings and took out the SIM card.  I transferred All my pictures contacts etc. over to my new phone already.  I am hoping by doing this that there is absolutely no information left on the phone and I need to know if it will be locked or not now for whoever buys it.

All phones in Canada have come unlocked since December 2017. The Samsung A8 wasn't released until January 2018. It's already unlocked.

It’s more than likely unlocked already, but if it’s not, the new buyer can just send a message to Koodo on Facebook or Twitter to have it unlocked for free. So you’re good either way :)

Factory resetting would erase all of your info off it.

Do you remember when you bought the phone? Anything bought from 2018 until now would be unlocked.

A few years ago and thank you
