Hi Koodo,

I am currently living in Snow Lake, Manitoba. We only have CDMA of MTS here. Do you guys have any phone would work for the region? I can't find it on your website. Can I use Motorola milestone from Verizon and activate it with Koodo? Will that work in Snow Lake, MB? Thanks

No the Motorola Milestone won't work on Koodo. Koodo only has CDMA coverage in Snow Lake Manitoba so the only phone that will work from Koodo is BlackBerry Curve 9320 https://shop.koodomobile.com/koodo-ce...
Since the CDMA network is all that's available for you that's your only option with koodo

I think you mean the 8530, the 9320 is an HSPA phone.

cdma devices only work with their original carriers and cannot be unlocked so it will not work with koodo. :(

eBay is probably your best bet, but you can pick up some pretty good deals on some Koodo CDMA phones.
