I'm getting the same thing, tried twice on my computer and once on phone browser, have already paid for services at the kiosk I just need it activated. Once you select the phone number from list and hit continue it says:

Generic Error
Oh no!
It looks like something went wrong, but don’t panic.
Log out and then log back in again to continue. Or return to the Login Page.

Yes...it is still happening...its been happening all day...since I bought mine at noon.
If I have to put in all my information on the 5 pages one more time and get this error I am going to SCREAM! Not a good start to trying Koodo...maybe I should just stay with Wind Mobile...I've never had this problem there...

LOL don't SCREAM you'll upset the neighbors :D

If it makes you feel any better, it's the first time this has happened as far as I know in at least a year... things do go wrong and I'm sorry you were at the receiving end. Call the number above and more than likely they'll be able to activate your new line for you :)

How can I call the number....When I don't have a working phone because I can't activate my sim card!?!?

In that case you can't... that is if you don't have any friends, family, neighbors, or public phones around. Sorry :) It's been flagged to Koodo so all we can do is wait till it's sorted!

Please say it is a Generic Error

I did not know that phones or SIMs had genetics - maybe there is a problem with the gene splicing?

I'm sorry, I know that the phone not working is a big thing, have you contacted either the kiosk about this, or contacted koodo about it?

Your login is setup as a manager and not the account owner. You'll need to call customer service so they can fix it from their end.
