Is he currently with koodo? If so he needs to request a transfer of ownership into your name. If he's not, you would just need to sign up with koodo and port the number over. The old account would need to be active and you would need to provide the account number from the old provider or the meid of the phone you used with them when you request that the number be ported.

I may be a bit confused on what you're asking, but you can activate with Koodo by porting your # over from the previous provider as long as it's active.
