I bought a phone from a friend with kodoo as its previous provider and I have a rogers sim card that I have put in it. When I turn the phone on a screen pops up that says " enter pin to unlock sim card" . I was told that I need to unlock the phone in order to use it with another sim/ provider.

Your phone is still locked to Koodo. You'll need to unlock it.

You have two options: ask your friend to call Koodo and purchase the unlock code (35$)

Look for the code at a third party unlocker or eBay and buy it there.

Edit found you one on ebay from a reputable seller (based on feedback)

Hi! I found this on eBay and thought you might like it! Check it out now: http://r.ebay.com/UIxzDH

Thank you for your help! I have one last question. I have not bought anything from ebay before.... how would this work? will the code be sent to me through email or will it be mailed to me physically?

They will email it to you.

It can take up to 24hrs to get the code.

They say they will mail it to you as well but they do not. They say that sp they don't violate ebay policy

Also make sure you read the entire description so you know what to expect. I used an unlock service on ebay yesterday... Here is the email I got after an 8hr wait....
