Phone and line for younger sibling


I wanted to buy my younger brother a phone on tab with his own line, however he isn't 18 yet, so I was wondering can I do the credit check with my details but have the line under his details? Or if there's any possibility I could get a line under my name and transfer it to him.

Hi Taher, Your brother won't be able to have a line at all until he is of legal age. The only way you can get a line and phone for him is if you add it under your own (or parents) name and account. Of course he can use it but you (or they) will be the ones responsible for the usage and bills 🙂 When he turns 18, you can transfer the line to his own name of course.
Hey Sophia, If he uses it, will the caller ID display my name or is it possible to change what shows up?

Koodo doesn't offer caller ID with a name, so that is not an issue 🙂 Only his number would show up or the name his friends/family have entered into their phone list.

Oh okay, thank you very much! I'll just put it under my name then 🙂

He's got a very generous brother and I hope he'll be grateful 😃

If you have a Koodo line, you can actually referral your brother so both of you guys can save $25 on your Koodo tab. www.koodoreferral.com It takes about 4-6 weeks to process.
