credit check


I'm currently a Telus customer, wanting to switch to Koodo.  Would I need another credit check?

You shouldn't just to switch. When I switched from Telus to Koodo it was a simple affair over the phone and I just went and grabbed a Sim card at a Koodo store.

Yes, you'll undergo a new credit check unless you're going to prepaid.
Hm, when i signed up for my Koodo plan (45/mo plan with a tab) coming from Virgin Mobile, I did not get my credit check. 

Maybe it depends on the location? I went through Best Buy Mobile.

Those credit checks can be a joke. I know of a case where a 19-year old on welfare was sold 2 iPhone 6 + plans by Videotron. Apparently, unless you have a definite black mark against you, you can sign up for anything.

Cost the parents big time to get out of that jackpot.

Jane, 

When you signed up did they ask for a credit card or social insurance number? They use that to do the credit check. All new accounts require a credit check. When adding a new line on an account, all that is verified is the history of payment.
