Hmm, I don't think it is possible becasue you need to hae an account with them that has been in good standing for 3 months. You could unlock via a 3rd party...

You best bet is to get your friend to unlock for you from his Koodo account assuming he matches these criteria:

Or you can sign up with Koodo and wait until you meet the criteria above to unlock it.

Or you can try to find a 3rd party online to do it (but the going rate for that is ~$100).

If you already own the phone then you can activate with Koodo at no Tab. Without a Tab you're not bound by the 90-day account activity terms.

So what you could do is activate, get the unlock for $35, then immediately cancel. You might end up having to pay for a day of service.

Or, really, you could just activate with Koodo and stay, we'll be glad to have you.
