Want to buy a new phone w/o primary account holder present

Is there a way for me to buy a new phone as well as upgrade my plan if I am Under 18 and (obvs) not the primary account holder? For example I know that a primary account holder can phone Koodo and get someone else added as a secondary holder or like an administrative person or whatever (sorry, can't remember exactly) but will this work for a minor? Also will it work in a store like London drugs or Walmart? Because I was in there today and the Walmart wireless rep wasn't really sure that it was a thing. Thanks!

No as far as I know you need the primary account holder there or anyone can add themselves to anyone's account if that wasn't the case.

Actually if the account hold calls customer service, he can add you as an admin so you can do upgrades at the store.

Hi Nicole, since a customer must be of legal age in order to get a new phone in stores, you won't be able to upgrade by yourself. You'll have to wait a bit and go with the account owner 🙂 Thank you! ________________________ If you see a good answer, give it a star.
