I'm currently a Telus customer, wanting to switch to Koodo.  Would I need another credit check?

You shouldn't just to switch. When I switched from Telus to Koodo it was a simple affair over the phone and I just went and grabbed a Sim card at a Koodo store.

Yes, you'll undergo a new credit check unless you're going to prepaid.

Hm, when i signed up for my Koodo plan (45/mo plan with a tab) coming from Virgin Mobile, I did not get my credit check. 

Maybe it depends on the location? I went through Best Buy Mobile.

They didn't say they Don't do it.. they didn't do it for me. Legally, they HAVE to tell you that they are doing it. When I signed up for my phone plan, 
i signed a contact for the plan of Koodo's Not Best buy

Jane, 

When you signed up did they ask for a credit card or social insurance number? They use that to do the credit check. All new accounts require a credit check. When adding a new line on an account, all that is verified is the history of payment.

Uh nope, they asked for my drivers license and I paid the owing on debit.
