Half unlocked??


Hi. I bought a Samsung Evergreen from a Koodo kiosk and have been with Koodo for the last three years. I recently moved to California and signed up for AT&T. My phone background screen says AT&T, and I can access all of my AT&T plan's features, but my phone still shows the Koodo screen when I turn the phone on or off. Does this mean I am not completely unlocked or that I haven't completely cancelled my Koodo account? I got the unlock number and gave it to the AT&T guy but I don't know if he did anything with it... could this be the problem? Thanks!!

The phone shows koodo when you power it on because you bought it from koodo. End of story, no deeper meaning.

If you're able to use the phone on AT&T's network then it's unlocked & you're fine. The fact that you see Koodo's logos is because it's built into the phone. If it was from Fido & you unlocked it, the Fido logos would remain. If it was from AT&T used on Koodo's network, the AT&T logos would remain. They're built into the phone for the carrier it originally is ordered by & won't change regardless of the network you switch to.
Thanks so much for your help!
