How did you get an account in the first place without picture id? It's required for the credit check.

hi Marnie,
You could  upgrade your phone in selfserve. Who told you that you needed a picture identification to access service?

It's happened to me from Canada post) you would need to pick up your package from the post office/depot, which would require photo ID
When I accessed my last phone update three years ago, I did not show any ID. I want to upgrade my telephone at a kiosk, using my Interac not a credit card. I understand and appreciate KOODO wants to ensure my account is secure. I spoke with someone on the telephone today and was able to establish to her satisfaction that I was who I said I was by answering security questions but she was not able to tell me how I could translate that to getting a phone without the use of a credit card. I have been a customer for 10 years and I have to get a new phone or I cannot access my service. There MUST be a way I can prove who I am to the satisfaction of KOODO so I can get a phone. PLEASE HELP!

If a rep failed to ask for it the years ago, it means that rep needs to be coached on proper procedure, not that all reps need to do the same.

You could buy the phone outright and I don't think you need to have a credit card.

However, if you would like to have a Tab (considered it as an interest free loan), you need to have a credit check. https://www.koodomobile.com/help/credit-check-requirements It is a standard procedure for various carriers.

@Dinh, just a heads up Koodo stores do not sell phones outright, retailers have their own policy although it does vary from one to the next.
