When activating for post-paid yes you will need to pass a credit check done with either a Credit Card or your Social Insurance Number

To assess how likely you are to pay bills for post-paid accounts. The bar is pretty low, but it's there nonetheless.

Koodo also does extend a "loan" in a way. They give you a phone and expect you to pay it back. They need to know that you will be able to pay it back, as well as paying your bill as Goran mentioned.

If you are upgrading to a new phone, there is no credit check just a verification of previous payment history.

Steve,

This is done in store. Never EVER share anything like you SIN, credit card numbers, etc online. This is how people have their identities stolen and get into some real trouble. If you want to activate an account, please go to a retail location near you and they will take care of it.
