I'm looking into buying a preowned iPhone 5s. Some are with Rogers, others say Telus\Koodo. Will Koodo be able to unlock the Rogers one? If so for how much? The others say Telus or Koodo so the phone shouldn't need to be unlocked? I am on the $15 prepaid Koodo plan with my current phone if that makes any difference. My current phones sim card also will not fit in the iPhone 5s but I could simply buy a new sim card from Koodo right?

Telus/Koodo will work with a new SIM card. Unfortunately Koodo or any other provider will not unlock another competitors phone.. There are companies that will unlock the Rogers IPhone at a price. If you are going to stay with Koodo just purchase the Telus and will work fine.

Koodo can unlock competitor phones during new activation. However this excludes iPhones due to their complexity. Sorry :(
