Are you already with Koodo or are you opening a new account? Do you know what kind of Tab and plan combination you're looking for?

You will need some kind of photo ID. A government issues ID card should be acceptable too. But a drivers license is best. Passports are iffy

Why are passports iffy? They have more security features than a standard driver's licence.

I know right!
But when I was at the Mobile Shop they frowned at passports for fraud reasons

Just because some people at the Mobile Shop don't like passports because they think their iffy doesn't make them any less accepted than a DL

Tiffany, are you aware that Apple is set to release the next iPhone shortly (announcement coming on September 9)? Koodo hasn't announced anything, obviously since Apple hasn't announced anything but it's a relatively safe bet.

You will need some kind of photo ID for sure. This is to prevent fraud and identity theft

All provinces except Quebec have photo ID cards for non-drivers. I would suggest that you get one for future use, since health cards are generally accepted for health services only.
