I recently bought an iPhone 6 outright from Bell, and I am thinking of switching to Koodo. I noticed that Koodo says they can't unlock iPhones from other campanies, so what can I do? Will Koodo work with a Bell phone?

The phone is compatibile but it needs to be unlocked first.

You need to get Bell to unlock it for you. $50

If you do it from a 3rd party it will cost $100+

You May have to be a customer of Bell for them to unlock it just like with koodo, so you may want to get it unlocked from Bell before cancelling your service with them or porting to Koodo.

Ok thanks. But for future reference I asked and they said it costs $50 dollars if you are a customer and $75 if you aren't :)

And it will be no problem to keep my phone number even though it is pre-paid?

Just make sure you don't close your Bell prepaid account before as it needs to be active in order for you to keep your number. Koodo will close your account with Bell.

I've ordered a unlock code from online and it cost me 11. 50 but when I got the email stating that the imei is clean and not blacklisted it still said it couldn't be unlocked does anyone know why this happened?
