You can use Koodo SIM cards on some Telus phones such as iphones, but other phones need to be unlocked by Telus.

Honestly, the only way to check is to test our your prepaid SIM. If it works, good, if not, then unlock the phone.

Well, I bought the Telus Galaxy Discover for hubby, and I had to unlock it for it to work on Koodo. I very much imagine it would be the same for your Q :)

I think I went with unlock.canadagsm.ca though they asked $30... it was my first unlock service and I didn't know there are cheaper services.
Try cellunlocker.net - I unlocked another phone with them and they only asked $15!

Also you can use http://www.gsmliberty.net/shop/ they are cheap
I'm upgrading my phone to a Telus Htc one phone, but I am on Koodo prepaid, Will a pre paid koodo sim card work in the Telus Htc phone? Because I don't want to end up paying $700.00 for the phone and not be able to use it.

Test your SIM in the device before you buy it. If it works, good, if not, then unlock the phone.

Without unlocking,you can't use koodo sim on Telus locked phone.
For unlocking you can approach your service provider or else try to buy an unlocking service from any one of the online unlocking service provider like http://www.superunlockcodes.com/suppo... I hope it will be very useful to you.
