I want to get a phone my son gave me that was on a plan with koodo. The plan has ended long ago and I would like to unlock it and go to a carrier of my choice. Is this possible and if so how do I do it. Ty

Send koodo a message using facebook messenger to request the unlock code. Once you get the code, put a non-koodo sim card in the phone and enter the unlock code. The phone is now ready to use with any compatible provider.

You can also use a code dialed into the phones dialer to access the input area for unlocking the phone through a code. This way you can unlock the phone without the need for a different SIM Card.
LG uses a format that looks something like this: 2945#*873# The last three digits being the model number of the LG G6 but you will substitute those last 3 digits with the model number of your phone. Tapping NetworkSubset Lock or Service Provider Lock should give the option to enter the unlock code.
Thank you !
