Can Koodo SIM card work with another phone?
Hi,
I intend to use an old phone as a spare phone.
But when I inserted my SIM card to the old phone, it shows “no service”.
My SIM card is Koodo prepaid card. The old phone has been unlocked already.

Can Koodo SIM card work with another phone?

Thanks.

Yes. The phones needs be unlocked and you also need to make sure its a compatible with Koodo's network. What phone are you trying to use?

My old phone is HTC HD2.

I am sure that it's unlocked. I bought it on eBay, and used it with Fido, before switched to koodo.

Thanks.

The problem is that phone is not compatible with Koodo. See here.


Koodo does not have a GSM network (Fido/Rogers do which is why it worked there). Koodo needs HSPA on the 850/1900 bands and that phone is on the 900/2100 bands.
