Sometimes it can take up to 30 minutes to activate. If your phone is not activated yet by this time, I recommend removing the SIM card and inserting it back in. Otherwise, I would contact Koodo through their Facebook page.

Try restarting your phone too

Was this phone activated on Tab or Prepaid?
and also was it a new number or did you port over from another carrier perhaps?

So I did try all of the above and still no luck. I also tried changing the phone number like they suggested and still nothing. It's a prepaid one that I activated myself.

Could be a bad SIM. Is there a nearby Koodo shop where you can stop by to check it out, or a friend with a Koodo or Telus account whereby you can swap SIMS to see if they work in the other’s phone?
