UPDATE – We’ve had several comments about Koodo Mobile that some kiosks are now up and running, website to be launched this Wednesday and the phones for sale are LG 380, Motorola w385 and the Samsung u410. Base plan costs $15 dollars and includes 50 local minutes and 50 text messeges. Another plan is $25 that includes 100 minutes, unlimited text messages and unlimited nights and weekends from 7pm.

We took an early walk to the Toronto Eaton Centre this morning and found the much talked about “Koodo Mobile” kiosk.

It seems that it was just us and the construction team that was still in assembly mode the gave us some valuable insight as the official launch is this Monday with the website being www.koodomobile.com! Below you will see video of the information – seems like Koodo (pronounced Koo-doe) is targeted directly to the youth audience as their retro 80′s video states that:
“Get Fat-Fee Mobility” – so a monthly flat fee monthly plan and possibly waive the activation fee.
“Make every second count with per-second billing”.
“We stretch your budget with plans starting at $15 a month.”
“We let you drop that chubby contact”

Also, as it states at the bottom right of the video: ©2008 Koodo Mobile with the tagline “Good Call”.
Enjoy the video:

    1) I don't fully understand what the big deal is about Koodo Mobile. they ACT like they're so HOT! No, they're NOT! Is it worth using them, and saving $10/mo, if their attitude is unacceptable? I'd much rather pay $10 per month, and deal with someone whose attitude I like!

    2) Today I happened to be in the Toronto Eaton Centre, and came across a “Koodo Mobile” kiosk. What's so great about Koodo? Two young guys (presumably both of them Koodo employees) were manning the booth. Both of them appeared arrogant and preoccupied with something. Was it paperwork or a video game they were playing on their computer? I couldn't tell exactly what they were doing, but there were no other customers. I was the only customer/prospective customer at their booth, but they treated me like as if they were doing me a big favor for taking 10-15 seconds of their terribly busy schedule to answer some of my probably very basic questions about getting a Koodo phone, and what their charges would be, should I decide to use Koodo, and if they offer any SIM chips.

    3. I received little or no answers. Instead, what I saw was an attitude of arrogance, contemptuousness, superiority and condescension.

    4. I can see it now that if you sign up with Koodo, you're tied to them, because you cannot use your newly purchased handset with any other wireless telco.

    5. I can also see it now that, if you sign up with Koodo, you're on the TELUS network, which is known for the larges number of dropped phone calls in Toronto (Canada).

    6. I can also see it now that, if you sign up with Koodo, you have no choice; you're forced to charge it all to your Visa or MasterCard, which is no good for privacy. If you charge it, you end up literally publishing your list of your calls, which is no good.

    I hope this helps.

    Don’t understand why anyone bothers to write anything here.
    Regardless of your complaints, the company isn’t interested enough to do anything about them.

    I sent an email to the company regarding a problem I had and never received a reply.

    Stupid because I am now dropping them and will go elsewhere.
