I have been a long time Koodo customer. I would like to add my fiancé to my account. She is currently with another carrier (WIN) with no contract obligations . We would like to use her Samsun phone and not have to buy a new phone. How do we go about this? Thank you.

You'll need to visit a koodo kiosk to add another line to the account. The only up front cost should be the price of a new sim card. ($10, IIRC). As long as her phone is unlocked, she should be able to use it with Koodo without difficulty, although you can check willmyphonework.net to make sure. If she wishes to keep her number, she can do so either when you activate the koodo line, or later on through self serve. Note that the account must still be active with the original provider in order for the number to be ported over.

So you contact Koodo to port the number over. You will get a final bill from WIN that you will have to pay and you're good to go. The phone will need to be unlocked if it isn't already. It'll be cheaper to use a third party service. Be sure to take advance of the referral credit so you each get 50 bucks: go to koodmobile.com/refer and do what it tells you to do exactly as it lays out, otherwise you won't get it!

@Brad Allore:
Congrats on your engagement! If the Samsung is locked to Freedom Mobile (Wind), the unlock code is not always cheaper on eBay. Shop around. MobileXpressCanada should be ~$35+tax for a Freedom-locked Samsung phone. eBay might be $40-50. Not sure what Freedom Mobile is charging for the unlock, but if they're charging under $35, they're your best bet.

Be sure to send your fiancée a referral so that you and her get the referral credits applied on your Koodo account.

Or you could do as this fellow guy here (https://forums.redflagdeals.com/koodo-free-phone-unlock-codes-ymmv-2115487/) and get a free unlock code!

@Robert:
You mean call Koodo customer service and negotiate for a free unlock code?

Less likely to work with Freedom Mobile...but OP could try...
