Hi Rodney,

That would depend on which baseplan you choose and how much airtime you need. First, you'll need to decide on a baseplan. They range in price from $15, $25, $35 and $50. Talk boosters (airtime) range in price from $5, $10 and $25. I haven't done a new prepaid activation in some time, but I believe that the $20 credit is applied after purchasing the SIM card, so this essentially zeroes out the cost of the SIM card.

Rodney, you're better off looking online for a third party unlocking service (link below). In most cases, you'll pay a lot less than $35 for unlocking your HTC. The code will arrive within the day, sometimes within an hour. For the HTC One M8 for example, I've seen unlock codes for as low $12 USD (about $16 CAD).

If you're set on getting the unlock code through Koodo with SIM card, then yes, that works out to $62.15 if you live in Ontario, $65 will cover it.
