Yes you can get on Koodo's prepaid or you can bring other pieces of ID for them to use to do a credit check.

You will need a credit card if you plan to sign up online. Otherwise, at Future Shop, Walmart, Koodo booth, or other shop you will be able to sign up using driver's license, or other valid ID.

Haven't received it yet. Probably a good thing, I'd be more tempted to play on it than complete my project, and I need to get it done fast... lol

Hi Audrey, to order a phone online you will need a credit card... on this case you may go to one of our retailers like Future Shop, Best Buy, Walmart, The mobile Shop.... There you will be able to get your phone, bring 2 pieces of ID with you...

Hello Audrey,

You will need two pieces of ID. The first piece must a photo I.D. (it can be your drivers licence, provincial identification card, passport, native card). The second piece must be either a credit card or a SIN card.

Koodo does not allow online activation anymore due to fraud. Hope it helps.

PS. If you do not have any of those ID's then I'd recommend going with a Prepaid Plan, all phones with Koodo including the iPhone 4, SIIX, and Galaxy SIII is eligible for prepaid (excluding z10). You will have to pay it out right though.

If they accept those then why does it say right at the check out that you need to pay by credit card only?

I think he means they accept Western Union or mail-in checks to pay your bill, not for online purchases.

But we're talking about getting a phone online not paying your bills
