I bought a prepaid phone through Koodo and used it for about a year, but switched to a different company, only because I was put on my partners family plan. They swapped my number over to that company. So now my Koodo prepaid phone has no number. I want to know if and how I can re activate this phone so that I can give it to my mom to use! (She wants it to still be prepaid)

Easy answer: yes

All it takes is for her to get a prepaid sim and to add money and a plan to the number that she gets.

I am slightly confused though, you switched your number to a different company, I assume that you got a different phone after you did this, and that is why you are giving your mother your old phone - is this right?

I think Dave has read this correctly. It's a case of new wine, old bottle.
