You can buy it outright to use yes.

Yep just make sure you bring enough money to pay for the whole value of the phone as there is no subsidy for buying a phone to go prepaid. Best of luck. Also shop around online you may find what your looking for a little cheaper if u are willing to go used or refurbished.
thanks for the quick responses guys thanks ! 😃

Some places may not sell you the phone outright. You can theoretically buy it on a plan for a minimum of 90 days and then switch to prepaid. Details are in the fine print on the Koodo Moto G page.

Means you have to qualify for credit check then switch over and buy a new SIM. Depending on your usage pattern, this may be a lot of work to save just a few bucks.

Moto has often been poor at independent retailing. Even Amazon and eBay (both Canada and US) give poor results.

It's hard to recommend a phone depending on the consumers wants and needs. I'd recommend going to a retail store and try a couple of them to see what you like preferably.

I haven't checked if they have new device Jeremy but I know Staples sells Motorola devices outright as well as other brand of unlocked phones so you could check them out.

Costco also sells some unlocked phones (you need a membership, and some of them are only available online).

For anyone who is still looking for a Moto G4 Play, try Staples (online only).
