I'm wanting to get the Galaxy Note 3, but my wireless carrier is Koodo. I was wondering if I get the phone from Telus and insert the SIM from my Koodo phone, will it work?

It's been known that certain Telus phones will work on the Koodo network without requiring the phone to be unlocked.

I can't speak for the Note 3, but you can try inserting your SIM into the phone and if it doesn't request an unlock code and successfully connects to koodo, then you can confidently buy the phone.

Most Android phones tend not to work without being unlocked.

Blackberries, iPhones, and some Lumias will, but Androids are hit and miss.

The only phones that Koodo can guarantee to work from Telus without unlocking are Iphone 4, 4S, 5, 5S & 5C. Any other phones will require an unlock.
