So I'm in France and can't use my phone. I recently called Koodoo and had them unlock my phone so I could use it on my trip. I was planning on buying a SIM card and then I can use it while in France. Apparently my phone is still locked. At least that's what the guys said at the store, here in France. Now I have no phone in France. How can I get it unlocked so I can use my phone here and text people back home?

Did you actually get a code from Koodo when you phoned? I don't think the unlock happens remotely. You do have to take a few steps to make it happen. Especially with an iPhone.

Now, if you are staying in France for a while you can still unlock it, either yourself at http://cellunlocker.net/apple-iphone-... for example. But, Koodo's $35 for an iPhone unlock is a very good price. Call koodo at 647-788-4337 and they should see if you already paid for the unlock and jus need to finish the steps. Then you can get a local SIM.

You need to restore your iPhone via iTunes in order for the unlock to take effect (there is no code for iPhones). You should have been e-mailed instructions on how to do this when you requested the unlock.

Make sure you back up your phone before the restore.

What is your mobile brand name&model? You can easily unlock your phone by using unlock code. If you need unlock code you can visit this site http://www.theunlockarena.com/support... here you can get the code and unlock your mobile easily.
