Hey guys,
So I just upgraded to a new phone. I want to give my old phone to my father. My question is, what do I have to do? Can I just give him the phone so he can bring it to a koodo kiosk or do I have to be with him as well?

This will depend on your device. Which phone/OS are you using?

For windows, blackberry, or Android it's as simple as handing him your old phone and no you don't need to be there with him.

For iPhone I think you need to disconnect it from your iTunes account and you should also make sure iMessage is off.

I'd also recommend wiping the phone. If you're using iOS, Apple has a handy guide here:

Hope that helps!

Is your tab paid. I assume your father will select his own. Phone plan.

Hey Mike, I'm guessing OP's tab is paid since he mentions upgrading which requires your tab to be paid off before doing so.
