If you're creating a completely separate second account, you'll have to use another email address. Just create a new one for the purposes of this. Or if you don't absolutely have to have a second account, you can add it as a line on the same account.

Prepaid can have only 1 line per account.

Good to know. So you'll just have to create a new email address and use that then.

If yo use gmail, you can add a plus sign to the email name and you will still get the email and it should count as a separate email.

Ex. JohnSmith@gmail.com as email 1 and JohnSmith+Koodo@gmail.com as email 2
