So for an Apple iPhone that's locked to Bell - if I insert in a Koodoo SIM card it will automatically unlock the phone from Apple's servers?

no. apple is a nuisance this way. You need to get bell to unlock it before you can use koodo sim. and IIRC an unlocked iphone locks to the next sim card it inserts to.

I don't think the last part is accurate at all?

Agreed. I think only Samsung's flex lock. iPhones have been said to flex lock in the past, but it's been a while since we've heard of instances of that. Once the iPhone is unlocked, should be a permanent unlock.
Motorola phone. Linux on 2xcomputers. Brew beer & wine @home.
Home service reseller internet + FPL + antenna with streaming on smart TV
Wireless 1 line w/ Virgin on QC plan, few lines w/ Koodo to get phones, couple FreedomPop SIM's for roaming
