Hello Lyse! Were you able to reach our customer service representative and activate your self-serve account? We have been receiving a larger than normal volume of calls, but we try our best to get to everyone in a timely manner. Thank you for your understanding!

I am having the exact same problem.  I can't register without a phone number but my new phone isn't activated yet so it does not have a phone number and I cannot activate it without registering.  There has to be a better way than phoning in!!!!

Seriously... Christmas music and then it sent me to a Telus rep instead of Koodo. This just gets better and better,

Did the Telus Rep not help you or warm transfer you (wait for the Koodo Rep on line before handing over) ?

After more annoying music a Koodo rep and then told me I had to go to a store even though I had already selected a plan and given my credit card. This is pathetic.

You should have  received Email from Koodo about how to activate your pone. Can you check your junk folder?  
Also there should be paper instruction in the box too.

There is nothing in my junk folder.  All I received from Koodo was the email with my order information and two emails advising me to be patient as they work through their black Friday backlog.  The only thing in the box said to go to the selfserve page which I cannot register for without a phone number and I don't have a phone number and can't get one until I register and activate the phone.

If Koodo rep couldn't help you on the phone, I would send a email about this. Then you'll have records of conversations.

Koodo's customer service should be able to activate your account on the phone...

I gave up and went to a store to activate the phone.
