Double check the Sim card does it say prepaid on it? If not it may be the wrong sim

It sounds like you were given a monthly sim card and not the proper, prepaid sim card. Prepaid sim cards have "prepaid" written on them. Monthly sim cards have "monthly" written on them. You should go back to Best Buy and speak with a manager

Postpaid SIM cards don't have monthly written on them.

thanks so much....i did go back to bestbuy & they gave me a new box with the proper phone & sim card. you're right it says 'pre-paid' on it. I guess Koodo did send a pre-paid box to bestbuy with the wrong sim card & then bestbuy sold it to me. who's to blame ? Anyway, my phone now works & i'll forget about that bad 1st day with koodo. New start ! thanks again

i had a similar incident at walmart in nanaimo. turns out all the phones they had had the wrong sim card in them so they had to send them all back!

i got a refund and bought the same phone right from the koodo store instead. was even $2 cheaper than walmart!
