My daugther will be at Abbostford for a year. I want to buy a plan from here (Brazil) through my intl credit card. I would buy a 24 mo plan and pay it in advance. You will have the garantee of paying. Can we do it?

For monthly (postpaid) plans, your credit card address must match your address on your Koodo account.

For prepaid you must have a credit card registered to a Canada/US address. You could use an international credit card only if you were to buy prepaid topups locally at a convenience store (at which you could buy 24 months worth of topup vouchers.

What about prepaid credit cards for prepaid top-ups?

You can also find the pre-paid SIMS on When you establish a prepaid account on-line, the cost of the SIM ($20) is credited to your account.

Prepaid vouchers also sometimes available on, delivered by email.

Any unlocked phone that is AT&T compatible will be fine.

Hello Carlos. 

I think they would require a credit check for postpaid, therefore I don't know if it will work. But prepaid would work!
