I am travelling across Europe this summer and I would like to use my phone but with an International European SIM card because I think that would be cheaper than paying the roaming fees to Koodo with my current SIM card. So should I just go to a Koodo store and ask them to unlock it for me so that I can put in a new SIM card? Thanks!

Yes,
they should be able to unlock it in-store
or you could get it unlocked over the phone 1-866-995-6636
or via self serve
The unlock fee is $35.
If you have an iphone, you'll have to get it unlocked over the phone or in-store I believe.
Depending on your phone model, you could also check cellunlocker.net or gsmliberty just in case it's cheaper to get it unlocked from either of these companies.

Thanks so much!
I suppose there's no way to do it for free, eh?

You have to meet the requirements here to unlock your phone.

http://help.koodomobile.com/getting-s...

Plus you have to call in to unlock
1-866-995-6636 or *611 on your koodo cell.

For an iphone you have to update via itunes to complete the unlock. For others you have to insert a different carrier sim to be prompted for the unlock code

Hello,

I know this post is stale but I want to understand about international roaming. If I unlock my phone and get a sim card for local pay-as-you-go, does this mean Koodo will make no additional charges? As in, I'll be off the Koodo grid entirely? Thanks.
