Purchasing a new phone


I'm currently up at school three hours from home and my phone just completely crashed. Problem solving did absolutely nothing. I'm wondering if I go to a koodo kiosk if I can activate a new phone and pay down my tab, since my parents whose the plan is under are hours away.

You need to be an authorized user on the account, otherwise no. So have your parents call them and add you on.

I always cringe when this comes up, since authorising a user to buy a phone on the tab is a different procedure than simply adding their name to the account as an authorized user. Unfortunately a large number of agents do not seem to realize this, which has resulted in quite a few wasted trips to the store.
That's what I'm trying to avoid. I don't really want to drive an hour to the nearest kiosk to have them tell me I can't do anything about the situation.

About the best I can tell you is that agents do have the ability to add you to the list of people authorized to buy a phone [i]if they do it right. Unfortunately I cannot guarantee that they will do so. That's why the question makes me cringe.
Thanks Timo!
