Buying a new phone for my Koodo account - will any phone do?


I have a koodo account and am buying a new phone. Can I purchase any old phone or does it need to be a specific brand, bought from a specific place?

Hi there... You can use any unlocked device with Koodo, here's a link to check if it is compatible... http://help.koodomobile.com/getting-started-with-koodo/sim-cards-and-non-koodo-phones/how-do-i-know-if-my-phone-will-work-on-the-koodo-network Make sure you try it out first, sometimes phones sold online are reported to be lost/stolen and won't work....

As long it's unlocked it should work. You also get a BYOD discount of 10% off of your plan if you bring your own device.

Telus/koodo iphones phones locked to koodo or unlocked phones with HSPA 850/1900 network frequencies For phone models I recommend the moto g or the nexus 5 for good bang for your buck. Of course you can get other phones as long as they fit the criteria I listed. Also big emphasis on checking if the phone is reported as lost/stolen as Camilo_A said.
