The only way to tell is if you put a SIM Card from another provider in it. Did you buy it from koodo? - KID ANDROID, ( Team.Android.Canada)

I have an iphone6. It was locked to Bell but I unlocked it and moved my plan to Koodo. Will it be locked to Koodo since it was brought there unlocked already?

Nope! Once the phone is unlocked it will stay that way.

As far as I know, the only phone koodo ever sold unlocked was the nexus s, because it came that way.

If you bought it from Koodo it's locked to them (unless it's a Nexus as previously stated). To unlock it I recommend www.OttawaPC.com and enter promo code "jbdisc" at checkout for a discounted rate.

That link takes me to just a search page? Redirects to ww2.Ottawapc.com

Ah, ottawapc.ca or .net redirects to the correct site.

Is it cheaper than GSM LIBERTY?

Maybe it's cheaper with the discount code, but they want 40 bucks to unlock my phone. Gsm liberty wants 30. I went with mobileincanada.com, they charged 20

Just shy of 24hrs as I remember. I remember I was starting to think I got ripped off, and just as I was about to e-mail them out came in my inbox

Ugh ebay was faster. I see on their site codes apparently served within minutes.

Hey Darren, 85052373edg is not a serial number that Koodo phones have. Koodo's serial numbers either start with 2684(cdma), 015(cdma) or 355(hspa) 🙂.

When I unlocked my Samsung S2, it took just over 24 hours to get my code but when I unlocked my Motorola Razr HD, I had it in 12 minutes. You can unlock most Android phones for $7.99 no tax with http://www.cellunlocker.net/

Niiiice. I'll try that out the next time I need an unlock. So does anybody know how one actually generates the unlock code?

nvm, I decided not to be lazy and googled it myself. The sites that sell the codes, if they're not resellers, buy them directly from samsung, htc, etc in bulk.

GSM LIBERTY took like 15 minutes to get the unlock code both times I used it.

stop spaming this forum and posting on old threads. If you want to suggest your unlocking service with ridiculously high prices do so on questions that are no older than a couple days and that are not marked as answered. Why would anyone use your service when it's cheaper to get the carrier to unlock the device and it doesn't void your warranty which your service does? After December 2nd unlocking a device will become free of charge for those who pay full price for their devices as well incase ppl want to know. Have a great day 😉
