Hi, i bought a koodo samsung phone from a craigslist seller who bought the phone from samsung store and is locked to kodoo. I was wondering how i could get it unlock by kodoo. I know you could get it unlock for free starting december first. I dont have a koodoo account/plan. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You do need a Koodo account to unlock a Koodo phone. You can buy a prepaid SIM ($20), activate that and request the unlock code.

It's probably cheaper to find a 3rd party unlock service - they can unlock most, if not all Android phones for a fraction of the price.

There was a report that you don't need a koodo/telus account to ask for the unlock.

First question asked was whether or not I had a Koodo account. A formality at best. You'll be asked for the phones' IMEI number. Pretty sure they can see which company the phone is registered to via the IMEI number. Give it a shot CTB and let us know how it turns out.
