I am currently with Telus for my cell phone service provider. My plan is much too expensive, and I've found a plan online through koodo that suits my needs much better. Is it possible for me to unlock my phone through Telus and use the same phone on one of Kodoo's plans? I have an iPhone 5 that i bought in February 2013.

I would like an answer that I can count on 100% because the closest store to my location is a 45 minute drive.

Thank you.

Yes it will work, just pop in your Koodo SIM card and your good to go.

A Telus iphone will work without the need to unlock. however for $35 it may be worth it to unlock before hand

What benefit do i gain from unlocking it before hand if i don't necessarily need to unlock it Dennis?

Once you quit Telus, Koodo won't be able to unlock your phone. Therefore, if you want to sell it you may have better luck with an unlocked phone.

Also, if you ever decide to leave the country and use your phone elsewhere (e.g. for a trip in Europe) you would need to unlock it. Therefore because you're not with Telus anymore, it won't be possible to unlock unless you use a 3rd party software or you know someone at Telus who would do it for you!

I've unlocked a few "Koodo-locked" iPhones through TELUS (without telling them the phones were from Koodo ^^). So it's very likely that Koodo can unlock TELUS iPhones as well. But if you tell them you got your iPhone from TELUS, they probably won't even try.

Yes, Koodo can unlock "TELUS" iPhones. Have done so several times.

I have had difficulty unlocking my Telus iphone 4s with Koodo.

Im sure it's doable, but there may be difficulty. If unlocked with Telus there should be zero issues.
