Hello. I am recently abroad. Can I reserve a phone number now and get the SIM when I return to Canada?

Hi Hooman,

No you can't. You will get to pick your number and everything when you first activate your line with Koodo!

I don't fully understand your situation, please clarify:

1. Do you already have an account with Koodo?

If so, you can request a new number via Self Serve. Your SIM card doesn't change.

2. Do you want to add a line to an existing account?

If so, you can do this with some help from a friend. You'll need a new SIM card (that's where the friend comes in). They get it for you and send you the SIM#. You activate a new line with that SIM#.

3. Do you want to activate a new account?

If so, as per Mathieu's response, you're out of luck.
