Existing Use, Unlocked Phone, Upgraded Pan

Good morning, just got a new unlocked phone from Costco Canada, wanting to replace old, very old phone. 

  1. Can I bring a “non-tab” phone, and upgrade my plan? If so, how
  2. I have a brand new phone, and if old SIM card will not fit, I already purchased new 3/1 SIM
  3. If I cannot upgrade my plan, with the new unlocked phone, does Koodo have a retention department, because I cannot think of one reason why one would stay?

You don't need to change your plan. All you need to do is put your Sim card in and it'll work right away.

If your current Sim card isn't a 3-in-1 and your old phone doesn't use nano Sim, you'll need to so à Sim swap in self-serve. The following link will explain how:


What plan are you looking at? Unless it's a special offer one that requires you get a new activation or buy a phone on tab via Koodo, itd not an issue

Thanks, but what if I also want to upgrade my plan?

You can do so, but you won't get any of the bonus data that's currently advertised.

For example: with the $50 5GB + 5GB if you're not changing your plan then you would only get 5GB. The bonus data is only if you upgrade on the tab.
