When will prepaid SIM cards be available again?


I need to get a new prepaid SIM card as my old one has expired. I've been to 3 different Koodo places to buy -just- a prepaid SIM card, to no luck. Finally a rep at the last place I went to told me that Koodo is "retooling" their prepaid system so they aren't available right now. When will prepaid SIM cards be available again, or where can I be sure to get one?

Koodo corporate stores only. Always best to call ahead.

The partners (Walmart, BestBuy, etc) have not had them for quite a while. Some independent "sales" staff have been known to hand out "retooled truthfulness" when talking about anything that won't earn them a commission.

From time to time, they do appear on eBay[b][i].ca[i] .... the Canadian site, not the US one. Make sure it's new and prepaid. They are a disposable item.

Koodo could save us some trouble by allowing the original SIM owner to re-activate an expired one on the same account within a 6-month window.

They are also available online from Bestbuy on their website. Koodo corporate stores would be the koodo kiosks you see in malls.

That's where I went today, where the guy told me they wouldn't be available for awhile 😞

Followed up on Mathieu's lead. Find something else you need from Best Buy for $5 minimum and order it there to get free shipping on orders over $25. Otherwise, the price inflates to over $35 with taxes and shipping.

If you follow thru, let us know how it turned out.
