unlocked Roger N8 koodo SIM registration fail

I just bought a Roger's locked Nokia N8, then successfully unlocked it via cellunlockers.net. 

When I put my Koodo sim card in, I get an error message: sim card registration failed. I then tried a Fido sim card and everything worked fine. 

Any idea what is going on here? Am I stuck with a $200 brick?

Don't know the procedure in Canada, but does Koodo SIM card need to be registered to work?

Not sure what you mean by registered? It is an active SIM card if that helps, as I am currently using it in my Samsung Galaxy Ace. The Fido SIM card is inactive.

I also tried a Virgin Mobile SIM card which also worked.

I would try getting another Koodo SIM card in this case, if all the other network carriers' SIM cards are working. It may be a case of a rare SIM card error or something or other.
