The account holder must request the unlock. Here is the policy to have your phone unlocked.

It is difficult to do from a distance.

That link doesn't go to the policy page. Here it is: http://help.koodomobile.com/getting-started-with-koodo/sim-cards-and-non-koodo-phones/how-do-i-know-...

If you're not eligible, you'll need to go with a 3rd party unlocker (which is more expensive, but the only option at that point).

Ivan, the link you provided fails in the same way as mine did. The OP should select the option "How do I know if I am eligible....." to learn more.
Unfortunately this is one of many pages that cannot easily be linked.

Sorry about that. I see that now. I thought that perhaps by pasting the text of the link rather than embedding it would solve the problem, but I guess not.

So, here's the relevant info from the link we can't seem to share:

How do I know if I am eligible to get my Koodo phone unlocked?

You can get your phone unlocked if:

  • Your account is currently active and in good standing
  • You have a negative Tab balance, you must be active on the Koodo network for at least 90 days
  • You have a positive Tab balance, you can request an unlock any time
