I want to purchase a used unlocked iphone 4s from ebay, then use it for 2 weeks with Koodo until I leave Canada for ever.

I'd like to know if there's an option or plan to use the iphone with Koodo without them locking my iphone. I don't want to have to pay another unlocking fee when I get to Peru. I will use a local new carrier when I get there. In other words, I don't want Koodo to force me to lock my phone with them.

Is the Koodo "SIM only promo plan" good for what I want? I don't really get what it means or its purpose or the advantage of that plan. link: https://shop.koodomobile.com/plans/ch...

Also, if I buy a new Koodo SIM card, can I use that SIM card with another carrier abroad? But I mean use it with the new carrier from abroad, not with Koodo, I want to close my Koodo account the last day I'm in Canada and avoid paying a new SIM card when I get to Peru.

No, Koodo won't "relock" your phone, as that generally doesn't exist. It'll stay the way it is.

Secondly, SIM cards are carrier specific, so no, you can't use your Koodo SIM to get a Peru carrier's plan. It doesn't work that way. You'd have to get a local SIM from Peru.

Please see your original question

A sim card is specific to the carrier and cannot be used with anyone else
