Do you need perfect credit to get approved for a phone with Koodo? I have a drivers license but i am getting it renewed in next couple days so can i still go do a credit check with Koodo?

You won't need perfect Credit for Koodo. They even have programs for people with lower credit scores. Even if you don't qualify there's always the prepaid option.

Here's what's required for a credit check

Thanks for the quick reply. I have a cell phone with another company but it’s credit limit program and I want to get one for my daughter with Koodo so that shouldn’t be a problem should it? Also is my drivers licence that just need to be renewed cuz it expired on my birthday ok to use for ID?

It has to be a valid ID so if it's expired then it's not valid.

For more information about what's required check the link I posted above :)

I think Koodo require 2 IDs to do credit check, I believe.
