DID you change the APN settings to those of Koodo and are you positive it's unlocked.
Can't configure APN settings as the SIM isn't accepted. Yes, I unlocked the phone myself.

Go here and check the imei to be sure it's compatible with Koodo: http://koodomobile.com/en/on/switch2koodo-step-1-a.shtml When you say the sim isn't accepted what do you mean? Check the network setting and make sure "use 2G only" or "use gsm only" aren't selected as network modes.

What is the error message that your phone is displaying? It's also possibly that your SIM is defective. Have you tried a different SIM with the phone?

Which Galaxy Mini is it? There are a few that won't for with Koodo. Does the phone have BOTH 850 and 1900 UMTS frequency bands (may also be callwed WCDMA, HSPA, or 3G)?
