So...we are trying to get our son a new cell phone .He currently has a Koodo account but the phone was damaged. We have an android phone that was previously with bell. The contract is up on it, and we bought it second hand. Is it at all possible to switch the android to his current Koodo account? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

As long as the android phone is unlocked, you just need to bring it to Koodo.  If it's not unlocked, I think Bell has to unlock it, given that your contract is over.

Oh.  you said you brought the phone to Bell.

You probably don't have to do anything.  Just sign up

Just take the SIM out of the phone he has now and put it in the phone he wants to use.

done.

if it's a differently-sized SIM, then get a new one from Koodo.

SIM slot on the android should be under the battery.  take out the battery and there's your SIM slot.

If the phone was previously with Bell and never used with Koodo, chances are you will need to unlock it (unless it was a Nexus phone)
