Fido iPhone 5S on Rogers

I have a phone I purchased from Fido (on contract) and I have a friend who's interested in purchasing it. I've never actually opened the box, nor has the phone ever been turned on. Simple question is: if I sell it to him, will he be able to use it with his Rogers sim even though it was purchased from Fido?
 
Additionally, from what I've read, a phone doesn't actually lock until the first sim card is in inserted into it.

The device would be locked and you will need to request for an unlock with Fido before giving it to your friend.

Hello @DjDATZ

Unfortunately the only way to make it work would be unlocking the iPhone via Fido or via a third party store which can unlock it and once it's fully unlocked, you can use it on Rogers or any carrier you would like!
