Every phone out there has more then one color. Koodo offers only the simple black most of the time. If you wanted a phone that is white or whatever color, you can't get it with Koodo. You would pretty much have to buy a phone online or somewhere else, unlock it, then bring it to Koodo.

BRING ON THE COLORS!

They only have one colour because it helps keep costs down. Koodo offers phones at much lower prices then everyone else.
If you need a different colour then black with your phone tho, try adding a case.

I have to agree with Jonathan. Would anyone know the "legit" reason they do not carry more colorful phones?

It would cost more because they would have to order more of each phone, the inventory would be more likely to become stale, and then they take a loss trying to move it.

So train managers not to over order them. Instead of 10 black Galaxy S5s, for example, carry 5 black and 5 white or skew it slightly to whichever becomes more popular.

Koodo has to buy the "License" for each phone they want to sell. Including each color. Its not as simple as going onto the manufactures website and buying bulk.

They need to buy a limited number of them. Say like 100. Out of the thousands of people that are with koodo. The license they need, yes might cost them but people ARE willing to get a different colored phone. It wouldn't go to waste.

Yes, a phone cover will do that. I have an Iron Man at the moment. I like the white phones better than just black. But the phones Koodo carries, do not hold white.

Hey Milly,

Offering a select number of colours keeps our line up simple and affordable. I hear ya about expanding though so I'll pass the idea on.  Asides from black and white, what colours do you and others go for usually?
