I bought a Samsung phone for an elderly friend in Ontario Canada. Can I get a prepaid Sim Card which works with this phone (see below) ?  Easy purchase from where? I am overseas.  This is the phone I sent from Amazon Canada.  Any advice helpful. These frequencies work there?

Hi there,

You can use the Koodo prepaid sim card with the phone as long as it is already unlocked with the network.


The Koodo prepaid sim card can be purchased online on Amazon if you are outside the Canada.

Koodo prepaid SIM cards are often available on eBay.ca (not eBay.com).


The photo may say that it comes with a $20 credit, but that was discontinued long ago. Bought one a few weeks ago for under $3 just to have a spare in case my original conks out. Delivery took about a week.
