Is it possible to activate my old phone for my daughter to use just for texting and calling?? I want her to get a pre-paid phone card, not a monthly bill. Is this possible and do I just go to a koodo store to activate the phone or how do I go about this??

If the phone is old enough it does not take a sim card it will not work with prepaid however if the phone takes a sim card you will need to purchase a prepaid sim card for it ($20). I believe to activate you would need a Koodo top up card as well. Both should be able to be obtained from a Koodo store so it would be a good place to start.
