Hello Emma


We'll get your problem solved. Did you try another SIM card and it didn't work? Therefore this is why you say your unlock didn't work? If this is the answer, then let me help you. Usually when I unlock an iPhone with Koodo (I've unlocked around 5 iPhone) everytime it worked tight aways without even connecting it to iTunes. If, like.in your case it didn't work. You would have to backup your phone and restore it with iTunes. Then it should work!

Usually the rep you talked to should've seen you clear instructions by email on how to proceed

Ivan, I never connected the phone to iTunes and the unlock still worked on my iPhone. Very weird
I already call the costumer service service bug the instruction was not clear. I try to back up it on my i cloud like what she said but my back up didn't go through,could i still unlock my phone?

You should be able to but would you mind please starting a new thread and telling us what happened with backing up and it not going through? Like at what point and what did it say? Etc.

Please start a new post with your inquiry, rather than reopening a old thread.

Yes! I was able to unlock it, when I restored it a message popped up saying "congratulations you have unlocked your iPhone" thanks for everyone's help!

I am trying to unlock my Iphone 4 from Koodo. I got the email with the steps to do it. I did it all but fail  to unlocked my iphone.I tried to restore to but still did not work. In the email it says that i have to have the koodo sim card. But the thing is Now i have iphone 5c, so i have Nano sim, which is not compatible for my old iphone 4. Is this the reason, that my iphone 4 is not getting unlocked? I have used the micro simcard from the old phone which i think is deactivated already. Is Sim card is the reason for my iphone failing to unlock?

Hello. As far as I remember I always had a koodo SIM card in the phone when completing the unlock. But I'm not sure it's obligatory. When you put another SIM card in the iPhone 4, it doesn't work?

The email says that i need to have Koodo Sim Card. I do have Koodo Sim Card but it has been de-activated (deactivated micro sim card to get Nano Sim Card for Iphone 5c). It seems that it Iphone needs to be connected to Koddo network to get it unlocked. Do you have any idea on it?
