    You would have to buy it unlocked from Apple directly.

    Or I know when you buy a Verizon prepaid device (either iPhone or Samsung) on back of box it would have thing on it that says pay X amount of money to get phone unlocked. That’s what I remember

    Well if it’s Verizon it’s already unlocked. They don’t lock iPhones.

    If you live close to the border (or know someone to ship) all phones sold in Canada are factory unlocked (its illegal to lock here)

    I would say get the iPhone 8 since it is the best value imo
    (Normal pricing is $360 CAD$ but with sales can frequently get far cheaper, in my case I got a $250 rebate off that so $110 CAD all in)

    If you really need an older phone the SE is essentially free
    (Pay the $240 CAD$ for it, but most carriers will give you anywhere from $150 to $300 in prepay Visa promotion)

    And can always trade in old phone too for credits
    Koodo $40 Canada Wide + 8GB + 1000 Intl LD
    Public $120 Province Wide + 12GB - $6 Autopay - $12 Loyalty - $45 Refer = $19 per Month
    Freedom $35 ($37-BTS) North America Wide + 8GB + 1GB Roaming

    I just had my iPhone X unlocked from AT&T and it was such a hassle. They have tons and tons of rules and stipulations to when or how they will unlock it. They have a glitch with the computer where it doesn't send the email you need to confirm the unlock. This process took me almost an entire week. I had to call multiple times and the first guy said he sent it through but it was denied. The second rep was awful and said she couldn't unlock it and it was all on the back office. This lady also told me she has no access to the back office and that I should keep waiting for the nonexistent email. I called a third time and got a very nice man who knew what he was doing and he sent a code to my phone. Once I gave the code to him and he popped it in, it was all done. He went through the back office so they obviously have access to the back office despite what the lady had told me.

    I suggest you should ask Apple store directly to unlock your iPhone. They may help you.

    That's going to be a big no. Apple can't/won't do it. It has to be done through the phone carrier.
