Koodo cannot unlock iphones from other carriers.

You need to get Rogers to unlock it for you (cheapest option, $50) or you can find a 3rd party online unlocker ($100+)

They're not allowed to, that's why. Don't turn this into a why not thread, Rudy. Koodo is being courteous by offering to unlock phones from other providers. They have no obligation to tell you why.

Cuz the software they use provides unlock codes to most phones locked to most carriers (not all are doable).

iPhones are unlocked differently. They need to send the unlock to Apple's servers. Koodo does not have access to send on behalf of another carrier

Hey Denis! What online service would you recommend that is 100% trusted and working?
