Buying a new phone for me, giving my actual one to a potential new Koodo customer?

Hi everybody,

I am looking in to buying a new smartphone for myself (prepaid customer already). My girlfriend would like to join the prepaid Koodo "club" but I want to know if she can create her own account and use the phone that I actually have once I make the purchase and receive my new smartphone through the Koodo webstore.

And because I use a collector points credit card, I would like to use the same card I am using right now to pay my monthly plan with Koodo on her account when she will create it.

If it's possible to do so, then how should we proceed? I prefer having a clear answer before doing anything that might get into conflict later.

Thank you so much for your time and I will appreciate all your answers / feedback.

There is no problem with passing your phone to another person to use with Koodo. All the person needs is an activated SIM card in the phone for it to work.

As for paying her account with your credit card, that should not be a problem.

1. Just purchase a prepaid sim card for your friend and a new phone for you
2. When you receive them, just take your sim out of your old phone and put it into your new phone (assuming they use the same size sim card)
3. And place your friend's new sim into your old phone and activate your friend's sim

But since you're not and weren't going to. Don't worry about that.

Actually I was confused if he is on the prepaid or the postpaid because :

(prepaid customer already). on the first line and " I would like to use the same card I am using right now to pay my monthly plan with Koodo ......." on the 2nd paragraph.

I think he's referring to his credit card, not the sim card.

I agree with Myke that it's referring to the credit card. I still read the question that it is about prepaid only.

But more info never hurts ^^

Yes. I think so too. I thought he want to use his cc that he is using to pay his monthly plan with Koodo. ( Sorry. English is hard...) :(

Hi again everybody,

Sorry for the confusion. And yes, I am referring about my credit card that I actually use to pay my "prepaid" monthly plan and use the same card to pay my girlfriend's "prepaid" monthly plan once she will join the prepaid Koodo club.

And the part about SIM cards, it's clear enough :). Once again thanks all for your time.
