Can't use phone in France


So I'm in France and can't use my phone. I recently called Koodoo and had them unlock my phone so I could use it on my trip. I was planning on buying a SIM card and then I can use it while in France. Apparently my phone is still locked. At least that's what the guys said at the store, here in France. Now I have no phone in France. How can I get it unlocked so I can use my phone here and text people back home?

Did you actually get a code from Koodo when you phoned? I don't think the unlock happens remotely. You do have to take a few steps to make it happen. Especially with an iPhone. Now, if you are staying in France for a while you can still unlock it, either yourself at http://cellunlocker.net/apple-iphone-unlock-solution.php for example. But, Koodo's $35 for an iPhone unlock is a very good price. Call koodo at 647-788-4337 and they should see if you already paid for the unlock and jus need to finish the steps. Then you can get a local SIM.
Thank you for the advice. Really appreciated. Bonjour from France!!

You need to restore your iPhone via iTunes in order for the unlock to take effect (there is no code for iPhones). You should have been e-mailed instructions on how to do this when you requested the unlock. Make sure you back up your phone before the restore.
What is your mobile brand name&model? You can easily unlock your phone by using unlock code. If you need unlock code you can visit this site http://www.theunlockarena.com/supported-phones/rs13wp7/ here you can get the code and unlock your mobile easily.
