Traveling to Canada from Korea with Galaxy S2 and/or S Unlocked Phones


I plan on traveling to Canada and wish to use my Galaxy S2 and S unlocked phones during my travels. Would you be so kind as to answer the following questions regarding your pre-paid plans. 1. Would my phone work with your pre-paid service? 2. Do I need to purchase a Koodo micro-sim card? And, if so, how much is the cost? 3. Could I take advantage of your 10% discount for bring my unlocked phone(s) to Koodo? 4. Could I take advantage of your promo offer "CANADA-WIDE DATA PLAN or PROMO PLANS"? For example, either or both the $29 and $64 plans. 5. Are there any advantages if I activated more than one phone with you? For example, discounted or free voice/text between/among the two/three phones? (Family Calling?) Many thanks in advance.

1. Yes, they should support the frequencies. 2. SIMs are usually provided for free if you're doing postpaid but if you do prepaid it's $20+tax. 3. That's only for postpaid. If you won't have any Canadian IDs on you then you'll have to go prepaid. I believe there's a 10% credit for auto top ups on prepaid but that would require a Canadian CC I believe. 4. Those are postpaid plans. Again if you won't be able to secure any IDs upon arrival (depending on how long you're here for) then you'll have to do their prepaid. 5. For prepaid, no. For postpaid, you get unlimited calling between members on the account.

I thought post paid sims cost $10. They are only free if you get a phone through Koodo

We give them for free on SIM-only activations too. We only charge the $10 if they need to replace/swap it out because they got a different phone from another source.

To add to Jonathan's #2: The prepaid SIMs are technically free. Yes, they cost $20 to purchase, but they include a $20 service credit upon activation.
To all those who replied to these inquires, many thanks. They were very helpful, especially those by Jonathan! Have a great week.
