How to unlock iPhone 5 from NWT, where there is no Koodo store

Hey guys,
I recently came into a pay-as-you-go iPhone 5, locked to the Bell network. I am a Koodo customer living in Yellowknife, NWT (with a 250 area code #). I'd love to upgrade my talk-and-text phone and enter the world of iPhones, but the "unlock you smartphone here -- it's easy!" is not at all easy to navigate when the first step is finding your closest Koodo store (Which is Alberta, for those who may be curious).

The question: Do I have to physically go into a store to get an unlock code/SIM card, or is there a way to do it online/over the phone/through mail.

On behalf of all Canadians living in the middle of nowhere, I hope the answer is yes. If it is, HOW??

Koodo cannot unlock a phone that they did not sell. Plus there aren't very many areas where Koodo has HSPA service in the NWT.

You can get your iPhone unlocked on many sites online. Google is your best friend.
