I have a koodo account and am buying a new phone. Can I purchase any old phone or does it need to be a specific brand, bought from a specific place?

Hi there... You can use any unlocked device with Koodo, here's a link to check if it is compatible...

Make sure you try it out first, sometimes phones sold online are reported to be lost/stolen and won't work....

As long it's unlocked it should work. You also get a BYOD discount of 10% off of your plan if you bring your own device.

Hi John, the BOYD discount only applies if there is no amount left on the Tab :) Thank you!

Telus/koodo iphones
phones locked to koodo
or unlocked phones with HSPA 850/1900 network frequencies

For phone models I recommend the moto g or the nexus 5 for good bang for your buck. Of course you can get other phones as long as they fit the criteria I listed.
Also big emphasis on checking if the phone is reported as lost/stolen as Camilo_A said.
