You will need to call Koodo to get the unlock code. It will cost $50 to unlock the phone.

When you buy your phone from a carrier it comes locked to it automatically even if you paid the full price. If you buy it from Apple then it's going to be unlocked but you'll have to pay a little bit more.

You can also purchase an unlock code from other sites since they are much cheaper.

Iphones don't unlock with codes though. The iphone unlock is software based.

It doesn't matter if you paid full price for it. Most phones are locked to the provider you got them with. The Nexus line of phones are always factory unlocked.

If you paid the full price, you should have bought it directly from Apple and not get burned by the devil.

And yet you have service with koodo so what does say about you? Really was no need for you to bash Koodo and call them the "Devil", especially when this process is the same with every carrier.

If this post was on another provider's website, I'd say the same thing for them. They're not different.
