I don't believe that phone is compatible with Koodo. It has very limited 3G bands and 2G bands (which Koodo no longer supports).

@Paul Oh okay. From what I was reading the 850 was a gsm band and it didnt have an 850 umts band. You're probably right though as the phone is working for the OP with everything but data.

I hadn't upgraded to Gingerbread. Now I have. Still same problem. Did everything: data enabled, settings to the letter, restarted, pulled out SIM card, etc. Now I have multiple APN Koodo Mobile settings and I can't delete them. I tried one after the other, they all have the same settings & they all won't work!

Try factory resetting your phone. Be sure to back it up. Not sure why it's being difficult. I bought one for my mom when it came out and therefore never were any issues.

The Internet was blocked by the company. It's working fine now.

Thank you all for your help!

Are you sure that you mean VPN? There are no specific Koodo settings for that as Koodo doesn't specifically do VPN. Do you mean APN?

Yes, I meant APN.
