Hello there,
I am considering buying my friends old Iphone after he upgrades. I was wondering if I would be able to use this phone on simply an unlimited messaging (text and picture) prepaid base plan of $15 and put a prepaid Canada-wide talk booster add-on of $5.

I also noticed that you can purchase a prepaid sim card and put it into any sim based phone. I don't have the imei number of the iphone 3, but was wondering if anybody has done this before and had any luck?

Thanks in advance,
Cameron

Yes to the first part.
The iphone 3G will work with talk and text but not data

Any iphone older than this will not work with Koodo.
would an unlocked iPhone 6 be able to do so? and can a kiosk do this

Thank you for your response. I have one additional question if you have the time.
Is the 3G able to connect to internet via wifi similarly to any ipod touch or other iphone?
