Hi, I want to buy an iPhone 4 on craigslist. If it had a Telus contract (and had completed the contract) will I be able to hook it up to my current Koodo account without having to unlock it? Thanks!

It should work yes. 90% chance it will.

If you can, ask for the imei and check it against the Protect your data website. Make sure it's not listed as lost or stolen before you buy. IPhones from telus 100% work on Koodo without unlocking. But stolen or lost iPhones won't function anywhere in North America.

Iphone 4? That phone is quite old... I'd go with a 5 at least if you want to make a good investment

My iPhone 4 has a lot of issues with Fido (Fido is the worst), so I'm trading in my Fido points for a new phone (probably the iPhone 5S) then coming to Koodo, if anyone wants to buy my iPhone 4!
