I have an HTC phone that my friend gave me, and the phone I use with Koodo is about to break (I can't charge it), however I don't have the HTC's "SIM network unlock PIN" and the phone is network locked. What can I do to unlock and switch it over to my current Koodo account?

You, or your friend, would need to contact the original carrier to get it unlocked. You can also look at 3rd party options. Koodo will not unlock a phone that is not sold by them.

I have an Apple iphone 4s that was locked by the original carrier. Took it to a local communications store and paid them $50.00 to unlock it. Works fine and using it all the time. Any good communications store will do this.
