Hi everyone,

I'm from Brazil, and I'm going to stay in Canada for 3 months. I want to buy a new phone for future use in Brazil. My question is: are the phones sold by koodo unlocked?

Only the Nexus and Moto G phones were unlocked if memory serves. Everything else would be locked to Koodo. And if your looking to just buy a phone outright/for prepaid, there is usually an additional cost.

I want to buy a Nexus 5. Sorry, but what do you mean by "if memory serves"?

Nexus 5 is indeed unlocked. By "if memory serves", he wasn't sure. Nexus 5 definitely is, regardless of where it's purchased.

Ya I had thought the Moto G was unlocked as well but I guess im wrong on that one. But the Nexus 5 is definitely unlocked.
