I am buying a used phone, they say it's locked with koodo, does it need to be unlocked for me to get service?

You should be able to use it on Koodo, Public Mobile or Telus plans.

Agreed with David. To use with any other carrier, whether in Canada or elsewhere, it'd have to be unlocked. Unlock codes for Androids can be acquired for $2-20 on eBay. For iPhones, it's cheapest to acquire the unlock code from the carrier (in this case Koodo/Telus).
