Does anyone know where to find information on this? I can't seem to find a confirmation anywhere on this site about this. I heard that the flip phone's will not be operational via Koodo after end of February 2014, is this true?

Apparently Telus is/will be starting to shut down their CDMA networks this year, so if your flip phone uses the CDMA network, then yes it will no longer work.

I wish they wouldn't use such a general terms as flip phone since not all flip phones Use CDMA. Basically if your phone has a sim card you're okay. If it doesn't then you should look into upgrading.

My father-in-law's Koodo cell is an LG flip which is a GSM model. This would confuse the hell out of him.

Koodo is owned and operated by Telus. So if Telus shuts down the CDMA network then Koodo CDMA phones will no longer function. But as stated, if your phone has a sim card, nothing to worry about.

CDMA was the network type that predated 3G/HSPA/sim card networks.
