Hi, I am looking to buy an Iphone 4s however apparently koodo doesn't sell any iPhone 4s. So my friend is willing to sell me his, which is locked to telus. Would i still be able to use koodo nano-sim in the telus locked iPhone or will i need to unlock it? Thanks.

You would need a Micro sim (not a Nano sim) to use an iPhone 4 or 4S (Only the 5 uses Nano).

If it's a Telus one it should work without unlocking.

To add to Jorden, yes a locked Telus iPhone 4S will work.

If it does not work after plugging in your sim card you have to follow the directions in the link here:

This is what I did to use my Telus locked iPhone 4 on Koodo

This is bang on, when Koodo first launched the iPhone 4S at retail inventory was tight so they were actually able to sell Telus iPhones for Koodo, and all you had to do was essentially unbrick it twice. Once to unbrick the phone, the second time to download the Koodo carrier settings.

Yup if it for koodo it will work.. but for other carriers it need to be unlocked.. you can get this remote unlocking service for Iphones from any vendors online like http://www.simpleunlocking.com

Don't trust anyone who revives a 9 day old thread just to advertise an unlocking site.

Koodo and Telus iphones are interchangeable.
