I just got a new phone on kijiji, it was locked to telus, but I got a koodo sim card (because I heard that koodo sim cards work with telus phone because koodo is a branch of telus) and it's working for calls and messages but my data doesnt work and I don't know if it's because it's a telus phone or if there is a problem with the sim card. Help!

Hey Carter, only the Iphone4, 45 & 5 will work without being unlocked. All other phones must be unlocked from the original carrier. We also cannot guarantee data services on non-Koodo phones.
