How strict is Koodo with bad credit?


I want to get my daughter and iPhone 4S for her birthday but I have bad credit scores, I've been turned down by fido and I don't want to put her on prepaid. How strict is Koodo on bad credit?

Koodo is probably as strict as Fido, Katona. Tell me something though, why wouldn't you want prepaid for your daughter? Assuming she is a teen, prepaid is actually pretty awesome for young people 🙂

Pretty forgiving and worth a shot.

That is true too 😃 won't hurt to try! But Chad do you think Koodo might be more lenient than other providers? If that's the case, Katona may be home free 🙂

I was just about to say that! There is nothing wrong with prepaid Katona. What don't you like about it?

Well considering I still owed another telecom money for a year before koodo put me in the SLC, I'd say yes.

There's a decent chance you'll be ok, but can be blacklisted if you happen to have bad history with Telus.
I find pre paid to be pretty handy, but like everyone said above me, it's worth giving koodo a shot, just call the customer service number and speak to a representative, I'm sure they'll get something figured out for you 🙂 good luck!
