Hi Tony,

If you don't have a Canadian Bank account or credit card, your best option would be to get a prepaid account and purchase vouchers with cash at a merchant. You can add as much funds as you want to your account, 180$ will keep a 15$ base plan of unlimited texting going for the entire year.

Hi Mathieu,
thanks for your reply but i need the data and unlimited canada wide calling of that one of the Canada Wide plans offers.  I think, based on my usage, going with the base plan and adding on will cost me more in the long term - plus i don't want to have to track my usage so the unlimited calling and the healthy data allowance appeals to me the most.  

Thanks again

However, you will need a credit card or Canadian bank to be able to activate a monthly plan, without that you can't get the account.

Hey Tony! If you are going to go on a monthly plan (postpaid) you will receive a bill every month with your amount due.  This amount will be your plan + services+ taxes; however, it can vary depending on if any additional usage is made. You can make a payment in advance through Western Union if you do not want to pay through your Canadian bank account. More payment methods can be found here http://help.koodomobile.com/my-bill/billing-and-payment-options/how-can-i-pay-my-bill . Just to clarify, you do not need a credit card to pass the credit check for the postpaid service; however, if you have none you would need to provide both your SIN number and your Canadian driver's licence number.  There is always Koodo prepaid (as Mathieu suggested) if you don't meet the requirements.  Hope this helps :)
