Dear Koodo, 

I would like to buy a phone and sim card pre paid.  It is possible to order on your website? I just arrived in Canada and I am in quarantine for 14 days. I would like to have more information. Please let me know. 

Beste regards,  

Denyce

You can buy online from amazon to get it more rapidly.

otherwise you'll have to go in person or get someone to go in person for you.

If you'll be maintaining Self-isolation for 14 days if you cannot get that or until it ships and you receive it, you can use Fongo or something similar to get a Canadian an number for free. Textnow has free texting as well while Fongo charges a couple dollars for texting. So long as you have WiFi you have service. Or see other VoIP services. I typically suggest Fongo.

You can order a SIM card from Public Mobile online. I don't think you can do that with Koodo prepaid. When you receive the SIM, you can insert it in just about any phone.

I second Goran in checking Amazon for affordable phones and using Fongo while you wait!

The Koodo prepaid page specifies you can buy the Sim card off of amazon. I haven't looked but presumably Koodo has an amazon store?

Oh thanks Goran, I didn't know that 🙂 Still, Public Mobile is probably the better choice but that is for Denyse to decide. BTW welcome to Canada, Denyse!
