Let me get it right. You unlocked a non koodo device to have it activated with koodo? If you are an existing customer, just purchase a compatible sim card at any koodo shop. - Then, activate your sim card through your self serve account - Mobile Phone - Swap device and enter the new sim card number. If you are not a customer. Just go to any koodo shop or any other retail store and they will have it activated. You will get a %10 discount (monthly) since you are bringing your own device.

Did you get it unlocked by Koodo, other company or just a 3rd party? The first thing you should do is see if any other SIM card works on your phone to make really sure it'S unlocked.

The question wasn't really clear, was it? But if you got it unlocked by a carrier you should have followed these instructions → http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3198 (after the carrier sent the unlock request to apple)

If I bring it to Koodo, would they be able to tell me if it is unlocked? Because as of now, it has no sim card in the device, and the previous plan was paid off completely so there was no contract left on the phone.

Although the contract was over. If it was under your name. We recommend you to contact the provider and inquire if it was unlocked already. If not, they will unlock it for you. If you bring it to a koodo shop they will give you a demo sim card to try it out. Or go to http://iphoneimei.info Enter your imei number. This website is really help full. *Dial *#06# to get IMEI of the phone*

Once your phone is unlocked you can try to pop in any sim card to test it. However you may need to update your carrier settings before another sim card works on it http://help.koodomobile.com/plans-add-ons-data-and-other-services/iphone/how-do-i-activate-my-iphone
