How and when to unlock Koodo phone when moving to another country


I will be starting a new job November 17th in another country. I purchased my iphone with Koodo about a year ago and wish to bring this phone with me. I am aware that it must be unlocked in order to use in the other country. 1. Can I do this unlock process myself? Or must I take it into Koodo and/or another vendor? 2. Once the phone is unlocked, can I use it within Canada? (I am trying to understand ifthe implications if I were to unlock it a few weeks in advance of my departure) Thanks.

Since it is an iphone, it is much cheaper to do it though Koodo ($35). Any 3rd party unlocker will charge you $100+ typically. See my response here http://community.koodomobile.com/koodo/topics/unlock-i-phone?utm_source=notification&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=new_topic&utm_content=topic_link There are no negative implications to unlocking your phone. If anything, you can use your phone with any canadian carrier once unlocked.
