Purchased a Samsung Galaxy S5 and currently have an S3. The S5 is GSM unlocked, but I'm currently not a Koodo member. Can I bring in my S3 and get my information (contacts, etc.) synced to the S5? And can I get a plan with Koodo with the unlocked S5? Sorry so many questions!

You can get a plan pending a credit check with your new S5 no problem.
The transfer of data is typically a favor.
If the kiosk is not very busy im sure they will have no problem.
That's how it works at the store nearest me.

Thanks for the input. Just found out my S5 is only unlocked to specific GSM providers and Koodo isn't one of them... can I get Koodo to unlock it for a fee? I should probably just go in and ask.

Was telus listed as one of the providers?
If so, it will work on Koodo.
They don't always list the smaller guys.
