Hi! My mom was recently visiting Canada so I got her a $20 data-only Koodo plan on a prepaid SIM. She was only visiting for a few days from another country. Now I want to deactivate the SIM I bought her since she has left. Does anyone know how to do that? Is it possible to reactivate the same SIM when she visits again, since she visits annually and I don’t want to go through the trouble of getting a new SIM with a new number each time.
Any help would be much appreciated!
Thanks in advance.

Thanks a lot for your reply! So unfortunately she will have a new number every year that she visits? The same number cannot be used again if its deactivated and not reactivated within 90 days?
Once your prepaid account is expired, then you need to get a new SIM and activate again. If no one picked up your old number, then you might be able to get same number. But, chances are slim(or you never know.
If you really want to keep same number, then there is a way. But it cost you some money.
Activate prepaid account and get a number. It is good for 30days. Then after your mom left, don’t add money on her account. It will be deactivated for 90 days if you don’t renew your account.
Add $15 (cheapest back plan)to reactivate her account before it expires even tho your mom won’t be using it. It will be good for another 30days. Then not adding funds for another 90days. Add funds before expires...
Repeat until your moms return. I don’t think it’s worth to spend money like that. It depends on how many months she will be away. But you can keep the same number this way.
