Due to the fact that the Samsung u430 is a CDMA device, then the phone is not eligible to be used on prepaid because it requires HSPA. Your friend needs a SIM-card based HSPA device that is compatible with Koodo's network to go on prepaid. See if there's any LG Madisons or LG A341s floating around - they're basic flip phones too but have SIM cards and were/are sold with Koodo.
