$60 promo plan (10 gb of data)


I managed to get the $60 promo plan that comes with unlimited talk/text and 10 gb of data. I know it is a "bring your own phone plan" but does that mean I can use the SIM card in any unlocked phone without having to get a new SIM card? I have a Samsung Galaxy S6 right now and I will buy a Samsung Galaxy S8 in January or February 2018 unlocked, but not directly from Koodo. Will it work with the sim card I have right now?

Ok. Also, do you know what it means when they say my charges for the billing cycle will be prorated? That is because I recently changed my plan.

Minutes are prorated if you don't have unlimited talk. So say you have a 500 minute plan and you switched at 15 days. 15/30 =0.5 so you'd take half of 500, or 250 minutes for that 15 day period. If you used 300 minutes in the first half, you'd find yourself with 50 minutes of overage suddenly.

I have unlimited talk and text, but my data is 10 gb for my current plan. My old plan used to have 4 gb (with unlimited talk and text also) and I used about 3.6 gb since the start of my billing cycle on November 25. The last day for my billing period is December 24, but can I use the full 10 gb up to the 24th or is the data prorated?

Data is not prorated. I should have been more explicit but when I said minutes are prorated, I specifically meant ONLY minutes are prorated.
