Hey Atit,

International students can get a postpaid or prepaid phone with Koodo :) Please keep in mind that a credit check is required to activate a postpaid account (click here: http://koo.do/LRgn8M to check the pieces of information we will need).

You can call ahead or visit a Koodo Store nearby (http://koo.do/locator123) if you have any questions.

Hope this helps!

I did not know, but good for you to point out! According to Koodo's own website then you have what they need. I still think the credit check likely not go through since you didn't have a chance to establish one.

I often go to Dufferin Mall Koodo kiosk. They usually have helpful and friendly staffs. I am surprise that they didn't suggest you to get the prepaid phone/plan.

Daniel meant the person working there could of been misinformed. Read on another post similar situation that you can use passport as photo ID and you also need SIN and canadian credit card. Looks like you have 2 out of the 3 and maybe that's why they couldn't go thru with it.

Even if you have all the ID you still need pass a credit check. You might need to build credit history before you qualify to have the tab.

Add : You still should be able to get the prepaid phone/plan tho.

who said tourist can not get koodo post paid ?
if this was true then all tourist should go to some other country.or maybe ontario government should stop giving them drivers licences and electricity and hydro and ...do not make my bite my tongue until it bleeds ..

tourist/visitors/students/ people with no credit score -----

please go to you bank with imm1442 and your passport which has valid entry stamp (canadian visa) money and have them open a checking account ..you can also get 300$ to 1000$ secure mastercard with them (use it pay it)

refer to this link :
http://www.tdcanadatrust.com/document...

id A : 4. A Permanent Resident card IMM 5292 or Citizenship and Immigration Canada Form IMM 1000 or IMM 1442.;

id B : 5. A foreign passport

go to drive test location and get a G1 or G2 with your alien passport and imm1442 with bank statement and credit card .

When don’t I have to provide my SIN?

Some private-sector organizations may ask for your SIN. This practice is strongly discouraged, but it is not illegal.

Here are examples of when you don’t have to give your Social Insurance Number:

proving your identity (except for specific government programs)
completing a job application before you get the job
completing an application to rent a property
negotiating a lease with a landlord
completing credit card application
cashing a cheque
applying for a video club membership
completing some banking transactions (mortgage, line of credit, loan)
completing a medical questionnaire
renting a car
subscribing to long-distance or cellular telephone services
writing a will
applying to a university or college.
