I have $94 on my tab, there are a few phones I think I could get for free, but do not want to activate the phone, only give it away as a x-mas gift to someone. Would this phone be unlocked? Since there would be no SIM card, and I would buy it off completely...

The only phones that would be sold unlokced are the Nexus phones. All other phones are locked to Koodo.

thanks, so I can pick up a free Nexus phone without having any obligation of using it with Koodo.

Most likely it won't be free. You could use 94$ of your tab to pay the phone + pay the difference out of your pocket!

And yes, you can do this. You're not obligated to use Koodo with the phone you're buying.
