I'd like to buy a phone as a present, but don't want to have to choose the plan they will have. Can i buy a phone outright and have them come in after a choose a plan?

Nope, Koodo won't sell you a phone without activation.
Unless you're already a customer.

You could but...

The outright price will be higher.

You can not purchase any device valued at 500$ or more

That ok. I was looking at the Q5, and $200 is cheaper than anywhere else to buy. It looks like there is a $20 activation credit as well, that would cover the month of prepaid i would have to purchase.
