You have to be a Koodo customer to buy a phone outright. Some stores might sell it to you if you're not, but with a $50 premium. You'd better call ahead and ask. If they allow it, it would be $685 + tax, which equals $774 if we're using Ontario HST.

Also it won't be unlocked. It's locked to Telus/Koodo. Once again if you're not a customer and not activating service with Koodo, you'll have to get an unlock code somewhere else. I recommend or even try eBay using a trusted seller.

Your other option is to purchase it somewhere else unlocked, like One of our MMs Paul used that for his Note 2 a couple of years ago and he liked it.

If Koodo sells the phone outright, they will have to unlock it, but the fee will apply. Otherwise, they'd be in violation of the CRTC code.
