You just need to pop in the Koodo phone and it should work.
If it doesn't work then follow the instructions here to update the carrier settings

Hi I am also thinking of purchasing an iphone 5 locked to telus and I spoke with the rep at Koodo and he said I would have to unlock it with telus in order for Koodo to work. Is this true?

No, iPhone 5 is one of the few phones that will work with Koodo without unlocking it :)

No. Telus iPhones starting with the 4 and above will work on either carrier. So will most Blackberries, the Lumia 800, (not sure about any other WPs), and a few Androids.

Other WP devices work as well without unlocking.

I am still unclear on this question, does an iPhone 5s locked to Telus work with Koodo? Can someone please give me an answer based on knowledge and experience themselves? Thanks

I would've done the same thing. But sometimes phones are cheaper on Kijiji for a reason. Make sure you don't buy crap :)

Check if it isn't stolen : http://www.protectyourdata.ca/check-the-status-of-your-device-in-canada/

$200 for a 5S.... This is why people get scammed. They see these and think "woo a great deal" and then they end up with a useless phone that won't work because its stolen. More than likely its a stolen phone.

Who quoted you $170 to fix your sons phone because Apple does it for less

You can get them for, asking price $200 at pawn shops.
I saw one, locked to Rogers, no charger, no cable, gouge between speaker and camera.
AND apparently even if it was stolen, iPhone can be jail breaked for $50 max
Hahaha

Stolen or not, if it's blacklisted and jailbroken, what can you do? Nothing. OR am I wrong?
