Reboot the phone.

Are you sure the sim is active?

Is there a way to try the Koodo sim in another device?

The person working at the kiosk actually tried a few sims, "none worked", all showing no service which left me believing that this was a problem and my phone had not unlocked properly. They said nothing about activating the account (sim) to resolve the issue. So I did not activate the account yesterday but have now then did a reboot. It appears to be working now. Thanks.
