Take out the sim. Reboot your phone. Then put the sim back in. Also make sure the network is set to Koodo in your phones settings. Cellular menu.

Have you just activated??
I don't even think they ask for the IMEI anymore.
You would want to be entering the sim card number at that point.

Check your settings => About device => Status.

Does your phone number correspond?

AFAIK, pre-paid SIMS are a one-shot deal. Once you've made a change, there's no going back. You may be stuck to buy a new SIM.

Best to call customer service 1-866-995-6636/ 647-788-4337 from any phone.
