To set up a prepaid account can I buy a new SIM off craigslist and then activate it online and will I get the $20 credit towards my account that I would get if I bought a SIM for full price from Koodo?

Also, if i am picky about my phone number is it better to activate it in store or will I be able to choose an easy to remember with online activation.

Hi Jason, You could try purchasing the SIM card from Craigslist, however the $20 credit would not apply only for the purchase through Koodo. It would be preferable to purchase the SIM card at any Koodo store: or online: As for the phone number, activating online:, you may be limited. However, in store you may have a much broader selecting.

If you see a good answer, give it a star.

Actually.... I bought both SIM cards from eBay for $5 and they both came with $20 credit on the two accounts :) Make SURE your SIM mentions "Prepaid" though, some sellers don't know there is a difference!
