1. Go to https://shop.koodomobile.com/phones/models/index.html 2. Click "CDMA" near the top. 3. Pick and choose.

I believe the Blackberry Curve 8530 is the only CDMA phone however and it isn't the best phone nowadays. Why not buying a CDMA phone outright on sites like kijiji?

Hello John, CDMA phones are not unlockable, so the chances that Kijiji have old CDMA Koodo phones are very slim.

I found out why i dont have the CDMA option, because i live in quebec the site is different. So i had to change regions to get the CDMA option. I was thinking of trying kiijii but i guess the chances may be slim.

As long as the phone is from the same company CDMA, it will work. The kiosks should be able to program it for you np.

In Quebec, you can program CDMA, but Koodo don't sell CDMA in kiosks.

No. We told you, you cannot a non-Koodo CDMA on Koodo. It MUST BE a Koodo phone.

Hello Kay, Hop in to one of your Koodo Kiosk if they have any in stock. There is still two phones that still works on the CDMA phones, a Samsung flip phone and the blackberry 8530. However, due to limited stock, some Koodo stores may not even carry any of these. So its best to call in before visiting your closest Koodo kiosk.

Ok thankyou I will try going into the store to look for one. I went into walmart and they didnt have any. So hopefully i'll go into an actual koodo store and find one or try future shop or best buy.

Hello Kay, If the phone does not have a SIM card slot, it is a CDMA, its a quick way to check if a phone is CDMA or not.

No CDMA option for me either (Ontario). It used to be there before. They're phasing out their CDMA network.

Hey Philosoraptor, please refrain from stating such information. It's one thing if we officially state it, which we haven't. Until the time comes that the CDMA network is no more, we will always provide a CDMA option. I can confirm that the CDMA phone option is showing on the Koodo Mobile website. ________________________ If you see a good answer, give it a star.

For the most part you can only get CDMA devices in certain areas now. If the area is primarily HSPA/LTE then you may not be able to find a store that sells CDMA devices, or even that can activate them. Last I was told it was mostly just Manitoba and area's like Thunder Bay that had them.

Hello Mark, Some Koodo Kiosk have CDMA stock especially for people who needs one. I live in Alberta and the kiosk here have some CDMA phone stock.

Not sure why, it's only Saskatchewan that has stopped CDMA activations to my knowledge.

Hello Mark, Thats wierd, I am in Alberta too and I have activated old CDMA phones and CDMA phones we have in our kiosk but like you said it has to be an special case, like the stock that we have is very low and it has to be a good reason like their going to move in Manitoba, have a work in Manitoba, or works up north where there is only CDMA connection. Otherwise, we dont even mention them.
