Stock HU Replacement

My sister has 07 LT Coupe, but the stereo AUX is messed up. She doesn't really care for an aftermarket HU so asked me to look for a stock replacement. But my question is this. Can I just get one from another one and just put it in? Is it that simple to just swap it in, or will it need to get taken to a dealer to be programmed or whatever it is they do to them?

This is like the one she has in her car, so basically just looking to get one from ebay like this one and put it in. 07 08 Chevy Cobalt LS 2 2L I4 MPI CD Player Radio Am FM Factory P N 25775626 | eBay

Unfortunately it would have to be unlocked by a dealership before it would work, best bet is to contact and send it to him to be unlocked for much cheaper than a dealership would charge. They are coded to the vin and he has a Tech II so he can unlock it to work on the first vehicle it's plugged into.
