You can unlock it immediately. It will cost 50 dollars. If you can wait until December 1 then it will be unlocked for free.

If your account is new and you haven't been with koodo for  more 90 days, they might deny to unlock it for you. https://www.koodomobile.com/help/unlocking-your-phone

You'll pay full price. You're best off selling the iPhone 8 yourself, especially being only a few months old so you'll get close to what you paid for unlike if you trade it in.

It will be a tough talk for you with the Koodo agent. You might get it if you are good at talking and the agent is sympathetic.

However, you can hope for the best. Recent koodo iphone are unlocked. I am not sure all of them but my iphone 6s is unlocked already (bought in August). However, don't shoot me if yours is locked. :)

You can buy from Apple, and it will come unlocked from day one.

I bought an iPhone 8 from TELUS, and it came unlocked. It worked with a SIM Card from the red provider. I also read that someone's iPhone 8 that came from the blue provider worked with a SIM Card from the red provider. I think it is safe to assume that any new iPhone 8 from Koodo will also come unlocked unless someone confirms that is not the case.

I've also heard of someone walking out of the Apple store with an iPhone 8 activated on Bell on a 2 yr agreement, and then flipped a Rogers SIM and worked immediately.

It's a given that carriers don't have to guarantee that phones would be unlocked prior to December 1st, so it can still be a dice roll. Mind you, it's no surprise that Apple would rather doubling the work on loading iPhone 8 onto shelves first lockable, followed by unlocked.

According to a blue provider representative, all Note 8 in Canada are being sold unlocked.

With Android phones, their lock status is decided at the factory. So, any phone you buy might have been locked maybe months ago when it left the factory, rather than "being locked" now.

With iPhone, the lock status is stored at Apple Servers, and providers can change it at anytime without touching the phone.

You just wrote "Recent koodo iphone are unlocked. I am not sure all of them but my iphone 6s is unlocked already (bought in August)." above.

Cory Z, why don't you tell whether your iPhone 8 Plus is unlocked or not?

I guess then that is another example why nobody should ever trust Bhell.
