I currently have a HTC A9 and just bought a new unlocked HTC U11. Can I activate it by myself, just by switching the sim card in my new phone, or do I have to stop to a local koodo store to activate it?

Hi Shaun, if it's the same size SIM Card then you can simply take the card out of the old one and pop it in the new one and away you go. If it's jot the same size then you'll need to purchase a new card and activate it through your self serve.

As stated above, stick your SIM in and you're good to go (assuming it's the same size).

Let me know how you like it. I've been eyeballing the U11...
