Hey there,

Title pretty much sums it all up. I was looking to buy the Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+ and use it on the Telus network, am I going to have to unlock it first? Or will I be able to just insert the SIM card and use it? Thanks in advance!

It will work but yes it will need to be unlocked first. However you wont be able to purchase the device unless you are a koodo customer.

May be best to purchase the phone somewhere else if you are not a Koodo customer.

90% chance you will not have to unlock it. By that, I mean I cannot guarantee it will work as its not originally from telus.

Telus offers the onetouch idol x+ as well, at the same price as koodo, so you wont have to buy it from kookdo or get it unlocked
