Once unlocked a phone can never itself re-lock.
However, Fido run off Rogers. Its possible it wasn't unlocked, and it accepted the Rogers sim card, because its the same network.
Now, I've never heard this happen in regards to those networks, but I know it works in the UK. For example, Virgin run off T-mobile, and you can put a Virgin sim card into a locked T-mobile phone and it will work.
EDIT: Also the 8520 won't work on Telus. They run a CDMA and HSPA network. The 8520 doesn't have HSPA and so won't work.
