If your husband is still with Fido, they should be able to unlock it.(I don't know their requirement to unlock phone)

I believe Koodo can unlock your phone but they might charge you a fee since its not new activation.

It doesn't affect your plan to use different devices. You just continue to pay down your tab if any. You will need a new sim because they use different size sim card(I believe). You can upgrade your phone through self serve :)

Hi Liz! If you want to unlock the Galaxy S6 that your husband has with Fido, you will have to reach Fido in order to get the phone unlocked. Then, you just have to put your sim card in. Have a great day!

Thank you! One more question.... The s6 uses a smaller sim card than what I have, will I be able to buy one online or from a Koodo store? Thanks again!

You would need to buy from a Koodo store
