If you buy an iPhone from Koodo, you will have to maintain a calling plan for at  least 90 days before you can get it unlocked to use with another SIM.

Whether it will work once unlocked with your home carrier or not depends on the frequencies they use and the setup of the phone - there are differing models for different parts of the world.
