Researching here and elsewhere, it looks like the major takeaways for Prepaid these days are:
- Still requires separate SIM from Postpaid
- Still does NOT support Wifi calling
- Now DOES support Volte
- DOES support eSIM
- Postpaid customers are considered new activations for Prepaid, and vice versa
- Currently no Prepaid 5G plans.
I’m currently on an archaic $50/5GB Postpaid plan, and if I can’t get Koodo to offer me the new activation $40/40 plan (which I hope they will), I might consider switching to Prepaid, rather than Virgin. With the current promo codes and AutoTopup, I could get 22.5GB for $40, which would be enough data for me. Prepaid is interesting in that I could tuck in a few minutes of Long Distance Talk with a booster, on the off chance I need to phone the US, rather than deal with the Intl Long Distance Saver, which apparently is up to $7/month now.
Any errors in my assumptions above, or any other notable gotchas with Prepaid?
