Where did you get these phones from? Usually if you just unlocked the devices, they are able to work with Koodo. You can take this compatibility test to see but it is not 100% accurate. Link: http://koodomobile.com/en/on/switch2koodo-step-1-c.shtml
These are phones that are for sale by other people and I would like to purchase 1 but dont want to if they wont work on the Koodo network..they are all unlocked and seeing as they are Samsung Galaxy series I thought they might but want to be sure ahead of purchase..Im sick and tired of the B,R, and W networks...overpriced and under accomplished

Best way to check before buying a phone is to google the specs. If the phone is unlocked, hspa compatible, and works on the 850/1900 frequency band it should work with koodo's network.
Daniel, the best way to know would be: 1- To get IMEI # of phone (if it is a non-koodo phone) and check via http://koodomobile.com/en/on/switch2koodo-step-1-c.shtml if it is compatible with Koodo network; 2- Make sure phone is unlocked (if non-koodo phone) 3- If it is a koodo phone, make sure it is not flagged as stolen phone (you could check this by calling customer service at 1-866-995-6636)

Always test your SIM in any used phone, whether the seller states that it's Koodo compatible or not. I also don't deal with sellers that won't answer my questions. When I sell phones I answer all questions (even ones that should not be asked considering the answer is already in the ad) because I want to sell the device and don't want to hide anything from the potential customer.
