It's just like any place that requires government id. If you don't have the ID, you won't get an account. You can check Koodo's website for what ID they take. I believe it has it listed.

just go prepaid through Koodo, alot of ppl actually prefer it supposedly. If you haven't yet you should check it out.

To complete a credit check, Koodo need three pieces of identification:

Your date of birth.
A valid credit card, in your name.
Either your Social Insurance Number or driver's license.

They only need 2 pieces of ID.

Applying for a SIN number is pretty easy. That is assuming the government building is located in your area. I think you can register for one online too.
Check this link out and see about applying for one. If you don't wanna go prepaid.

I'm not trying to be condescending I'm just baffled about that. It could very well be what Jonathan said & they don't have the card which is understandable because I got mine when I was 16 & lost it a year later, I haven't had an actual card for over 19 years and I've made it through life just remembering the #.
If you don't have a card or # then like I said I don't understand how bills would get paid?

I think it's the most lost piece of ID because I've heard a lot of ppl over the years say they lost the card but every single one remembers the #, it's pretty amazing an must be because you know that you can't work in Canada without that #, well not legally anyways ;-)

I don't want to sound mean or condescending, but... how do you not have either one of those? If you can't get a driver's license in your province, you can get an equally good photo ID called something along the lines of an "age of majority card". It's basically valid photo ID that (in Ontario, at least) looks identical to a driver's license except it's a different color and doesn't have a license class attached to it (G, F, etc).

Also, how do you not have a SIN#? Do you have the actual # but lost the card? You can get a replacement from the government for $10.

I have one of those cards. It's purple and looks like a giant sim card because of one corner being cut. The cost for one of thses cards is $35.

Tell me about it. Had one girl who came in with an Arizona driver's license, and an expired BMO credit card registered to an address in Quebec... but it's okay because she had a local address written down on a piece of paper!! Yeah right. Get proper ID, lady.

Goldy, like Kid Android said, you will probably have to go with prepaid, unless someone can open an account under their name and have you use the line. Good luck.
