Yes You can because there is no credit check with Prepaid

Hi Beckie, I don't see why not... there is no credit check or anything for prepaid so you can certainly purchase a prepaid SIM and activate it. I'm not sure though if you can port a number of a blocked account... and as you yourself said yes you will still have to pay off your plan bill. Welcome to prepaid, I think you'll like it 🙂

No, Koodo won't allow porting until she settles with payment department.
You can do that but you will be required to purchase a prepaid sim ($20) and at least an applicable base plan. You will also have to activate a separate number for the duration you are on prepaid.

You can go to prepaid, but you will have to get a different number and the calling is all local unless you have a Canada-Wide Booster. The prepaid SIM card is $20 and you do get $20 credit on your account when you sign up at: activateprepaid.koodomobile.com A lot of people will get the $15 texting base plan and the $25 - 500 talk minutes. Reasoning behind this, is that you only have to renew your $15 base plan every month and the 500 talk minutes roll over each month since they don't expire like the base plans. Or if you find you will be doing more talking, go with the $25 base plan (give you unlimited local calls after 7pm) and get the $25 - 500 talk minutes.

Arika is bang on. Unless you talk a fair amount and frequently, I would just get the base plan of $15 and add the $25 booster for 500 minutes. Of course, these minutes will roll over as the base plan is still renewed the next month. It's kind of like Postpaid if you think keep renewing your base plan.
