    I bought a Q5 from Koodo outright, with the intention of unlocking it and contacted a seller online who unlocks Zeds and Qs for $25. Gave him the IMEI for the Q5 and he told me his supplier "couldn't find" the unlock code. Asked me to confirm the IMEI and, he would check another supplier, but that it's likely that they use the same database.

    Anyone know anything about this? Is there some central database that these folks pull their codes from? Is it just that the Q5 in Canada is too new to unlock?

    It's probably just too new. Almost every phone is unlockable. Give it a few weeks and it should be unlockable.

    agreed with shahyaz, give it some time. Q5 just came out 2 days ago in Canada so still fairly recent

    Yeah, there was similar issue when the Z10 came out and alot of users couldn't get unlock codes for their device as it was not in the database - codes come from the carrier. (may take some time to be entered)
