Hi guys, I have a tab balance of $120 on my Samsung S5. I want to pay it off to and upgrade to S8 on tab at $0. My question is, can I request the S8 be unlocked immediately?

Peter,

As per new policy, all new phone should be sold unlocked, you can also request you old "locked" phone to be unlocked for free also  https://www.koodomobile.com/help/unlocking-your-phone

CRTC has required all carriers to unlock their phones (buying from them) from Dec 2017 for free. All new phone should be unlocked. So you don't have to worry about unlocking.
