Returning or exchanging your Koodo phone

If you’re not happy with the phone you purchased, you can return the phone for an exchange or refund provided that you meet the following conditions:

  • The phone is in like-new condition in the original packaging
  • You show proof of purchase
  • Accessories are excluded unless they’re defective

Additionally, if your usage exceeds any one of the following limits, you can still return or exchange your device, but you’ll be responsible for your bill:

  • 30 minutes of talk time (local and/or long distance)
  • 50 text messages (incoming and outgoing)
  • 50 MB data

When your device is returned within the return period, any Tab and/or Tab Bonus balance for the phone will be removed from your account. It can take up to 4 weeks for the adjustment to appear on your bill.

1. I purchased my phone online at If I haven't received it in 30 days, how can I return it? Is it 30 days from the order date or 30 days from when it's delivered? Are these calendar days or business days?

If you haven't received your device in 30 calendar days, it’s most likely that the phone has gotten lost in transit. You can request to start an investigation process for up to 90 calendar days starting from when the tracking number was generated.

You can request a return within 30 calendar days, starting from the day that it was delivered to the address. If it hasn’t been delivered yet, you can refuse the package and it’ll be sent back to the sender.

2. How can I find out when you’ll process the return for my already-delivered, unused phone or the length of time it takes for this process?

When you return a device to the post office, a unique tracking number will be given to you, so you can check the progress of the package and see when it arrives at our warehouse. Please make sure you keep the tracking number safe, because Koodo doesn’t have access to it.

This process can take up to 4 weeks. The phone will be received in the warehouse, and our staff there will check the device. Once the check is completed, adjustments to your account will be made accordingly.

3. Will I have to pay for shipping when I return my phone?

No, you won’t have to pay for shipping for a return. We’ll provide you with a barcode that will pay for the shipping and handling on the way back to our warehouse.
