Hey if I have an inactive SIM for Koodo, can I sell it to someone and have them activate it without paying the $10 fee to buy one?

As long as it hasn't been activated yet, go ahead.

I always buy my SIM cards from eBay, guess people sell theirs for the same reason :) As Timo said go ahead :D

No it was active and that account is now closed, does that mean yes?

I think you can sell your false teeth if you like, so I don't think there is any legal reason why you can't sell a used SIM card.
But why would anybody want to buy a used card? Doesn't make sense to me... it can't be used on any other account actually.

Thanks Sophia, but I meant can they activate them...

PS Santa does not have false teeth, but those cookies aren't helping

LOL! Good one :D
No I'm afraid the card would be useless to them, Geoff, on postpaid plans you can reactivate a SIM card within 3 months, but only on the same account :)

Depends how old it is, if there is a sim that is 1 year inactive, they will automatically will not work.

Sim cards can only ever be activated on a single account. Once they have been activated once, they CANNOT be used again.
