Hi Murray, Is the new SIM card activated? You could try to switch off your iPhone for a few minutes and then back on, does it show a network now?

Not necessarily, Murray, especially if you ordered it by mail it may not be activated. You might need to visit self service and add the SIM number to your account there.

DID you get the phone from Koodo or Telus? If not the phone will have to be unlocked before it will work on koodo or any other carrier other than the original carrier it was purchased from originally.

Have you connected the phone to iTunes since the unlock was performed? Also you might just have to take the sim card out and then put it back in while the phone is off.

Just to add on to what Al said here is the link for updating carrier settings http://help.koodomobile.com/plans-add-ons-data-and-other-services/iphone/how-do-i-activate-my-iphone It's worth a try 🙂 Also make sure you have 3g enabled on your phone and not set to 2g only or gsm only 🙂
