For postpaid, you will still have to pass a credit check to cover services since you will have an open account with Koodo. If your boyfriend has good credit, there's a (?) chance (?) that Koodo might let him carry both phones on his account, but you might have difficulty porting the second number over if the original account is not in his name.

For prepaid, there is no credit requirement since you pay for everything up front, a much simpler system.

Make sure your phones are carrier unlocked before you bring them to Koodo for use.

You may be placed on the $200 spending limit program, so that it shouldn't be a problem, especially if you're bringing your own device since Koodo will then only take your monthly bill into consideration. After a while, once you demonstrate good payment history, you'll be taken off the program.
