Using the Canada Wide Double Promo30(BB) with a new phone.


I originally signed on with koodoo for the Canada Wide Double Promo30(BB) plan. I bought an older blackberry but it recently broke and i need a new Phone. Is it possible to purchase the Nokia Lumia 520 and keep the same plan ? If this is not possible can i buy another used blackberry and activate it on koodoo to retain the blackberry plan ? Thanks

That plan is universal, it'll work with any phone.
If i changed to another plan, Would i be able to return to this promo plan in the future ? I only ask because i don't see this plan listed anywhere on there website. Thanks.

It's the other way around. The BB specific plans will work with any phone because they include the provisioning access for BB OS 7 and earlier, but a non-BB data plan will not work with BB OS 7 and earlier.
Good question rocky. All questions I would like to know before buying another phone.

That plan was designed for blackberry. Which includes blackberry rim services on it so data plan on blackberries will work fine. If you upgrade to a window phone, android or iphone. You need to change your plan. Now, you will lose the plan. You need to log in to self serve and change it. *** IF you keep it and use your Nokia Lumia, be ready for the extra data charges *** ________________________ If you see a good answer, give it a star.

WRONG! For the reasons Jonathan already listed above, this plan will work with any phone. I work tech support for Koodo and have confirmed this directly with the network support team.

Timo's right, you do not have to change your rate plan if you have a (BB) plan switching to any operating system.

Don't forget then to forward your bills to Timo once it is issued! LOL Contact tech support from koodo and let us know what's right!

Timo is right. The (BB) plans all include the data provisioning to work with any phone. The ones without (BB) will not work with Blackberry 7 or earlier. Any BB specific add ons such as unlimited BBM and Unlimited social networking will only work with BBs but that's a different topic all together.

I felt TIMOS' post disrespectful. When someone types using upper cases means you are yelling at someone. He needs some anger management training 🙂 Attitudes are bad 😞

I work with Timo. He has a very good temperment, way better than mine. He was not yelling, he used caps for emphasis. Not too mention Timo is very respectful. The only time any of us get "riled up" are when the rules are broken (see repeating answers as an example).
