What I.D. Do I need to buy a phone?

I'm a participant level 1
I'm a participant level 1

Looking to buy a new phone from Fido. I don't really have anything of my own, no bills are under my name, I dont have a credit card. I'd like to get started with my life. My dad will be paying my bill for a couple months, but I'd like the phone to be under my name for when I do start paying for it. What forms of I.D. will I need? 

Please no judgment for my current situation.
