Hi I tried to apply for a koodo plan but unfortunately they did now allow me because I am just new in town and no credit history yet..does it really matter even I have my id's? They want me to stay here at least 6mos before I can get a plan..the sad part is, some of my friends did get a fone and plan even not yet 6mos here and no credit history also..

You don't need to stay at least 6 months but recent moves to Canada can affect your eligibility for subsidy. The system will basically just tell the rep what the result is. It could be any # of things on your credit file: if you owe another carrier money, if you have had bad payment history, etc. Where did you go to try activating? What IDs do you have?

Worst case scenario is you can go on prepaid since there's no credit needed, but you'll have to pay all of your phone upfront.
