So this free unlock policy will be applied to all devices including tablets?
How about hubs for "wireless" home phone service?

Most likely, NO. At least this is what I have learned from CRTC. I think it is YMMV depending on the carrier.
Curious if one active account can unlock multiple devices?

I don't think the device is tied up on the plan, so not sure if this is possible.

I talked to Koodo before. They said they cannot unlock it, whether it is free or not.

I just spoke with Koodo rep, and they said that they're shipping all Iphone 8, 8 plus, and Xs unlocked, so if you bought one of these from Koodo you don't need to unlock it.

Hey question for you all

I have an iphone SE that i want unlocked, but I'm on koodo's QC plan and I live in AB. Is there anyway to request unlock without calling them in? I'm just scared that if i call in, they'll force me to change my plan.

Many other models they sold come unlocked as well. They started doing this months ago. Some reported receiving unlocked iPhone SE from Koodo when they had deals.

Wait to see whether they will provide it under self serve.

A guy at a Koodo kiosk unlocked mine temporarily to test it with a different SIM card when I was having problems with it, so it is possible. They just choose not to do it.

Rogers seems determined to charge until until this date.
Rogers unlocked my for free last week. I think I just got lucky with a nice rep.

since iPhone unlocking is a little different, actually done on the server/itunes end and not by code input I read online that apple will actually push an update/patch that will unlock all Canadian registered iPhones via an update, no need to call in. Could be a rumour, but actually makes a lot of sense since iphone requests are always processed by apple directly.

You're in Alberta this week for business and was wondering if I could get it unlocked... I doubt they'll ask where you're living?

It can be unlocked through eBay, so it is doable for sure.

In your situation, they did not need to unlock it to use another Koodo SIM card, unless they wanted to try a Bell/Rogers sim card.
