In order to unlock a Koodo phone you need to be a Koodo customer, or to fin one willing to do it for you!

You can get a phone unlocked with a prepaid account.

Confirmed what Ahmad just said, you can certainly unlock a Koodo phone with a prepaid account! You need to top up enough to have $35 credit and the rep will unlock the phone when you dial 611.

That said, depending on the phone you may be cheaper off just going with a 3rd party, check out cellunlocker.net or unlockbox.ca (my two favorite sites). eBay is a good place to check too.

do you need a credit check in order to get a prepaid account?

No credit check is required for a Prepaid account but like Sophia mentioned above I'd check out those sites. A lot less of a hassle than setting up a account just to unlock a phone.
