A 2 part question:

  1. Will an UNLOCKED T Mobile phone work with a Koodo SIM card, or any other Canadian SIM card?
  2. What does the error warning “SIM card not found” mean? I tried 2 working SIM cards in this phone and got that warning with both.
  3. thanks

It should at least for 3G speeds as basically every phone had the same quad bands. It'll likely work with lte as well. You can try willnyphonework.net to see if just about any phone will work with just about any carrier.

How did you get this phone? It's quite possible that it has a malfunction with the Sim tray.

Unlocked T-Mobile gear should work 100%. They are one of Koodo’s roaming partners in the US.

Which phone do you have?

i picked up a Oneplus 6T running LineageOS on Ebay. I tried 2 working SIM cards in it and got that SIM not found error for both. I went down the things to do from  https://joyofandroid.com/fix-no-sim-card-detected-error-on-android/ and settled on #20.

At least I do know now T Mobile phones work in The Great White North.

Thanks everyone
