I have an LG G4 and I don't like it. I still owe about $130 on a Tab. To get a new phone, I know it's best to sell this privately (Kijiji, etc.) - but I have a couple questions. Can the person I sell it to use the phone even if I haven't paid it off yet? And, is the phone "locked" to Koodo? Telus? Thanks!

Hello Mark

Can the person I sell it to use the phone even if I haven't paid it off yet?
Yes he can, your tab is related to you not your phone.

And, is the phone "locked" to Koodo? Telus?
It is locked to Koodo's and Telus's network but you can unlock it for a small fee on eBay.

Thanks Robert! Just looked up stuff about unlocking with sellers on ebay - looks pretty straightforward. 
Thanks again.
