Just move the SIM card from one phone to the other, if they are both the same size.

Just take your SIM out of the LG G3 and put it into the older phone.  If your older phone takes a larger SIM card then the G3, you'll have to buy a new SIM card ($10, the new SIMs are multi-SIM so they'll work in any phone, available at most multi-brand retailers like Walmart Wireless/OSL and The Mobile Shop, and at all Koodo shops) and change your SIM card number in Koodo Self-Serve.

If the SIM is convertible, then take out the NANO sim from it.. or buy a new sim

Ahh I see, well in that case you will need to buy a SIM card and activate it in self service 🙂 Edit.. Wow... three replies in the time I typed mine :}

Selena, if the sim card is a tricut sim than all you have to do is pop the nano sim card out of the MicroSim adapter. If you don't have a tricut then you will have to go into a Koodo store to get a new one.

Here is what a tricut sim will look like:

It will :) 
Now it's like 3 sizes in one. (Nano, Micro and Regular size in one.)
You just need to keep adapter/outer in safe place.

You can pop out even smaller. 
SIM contains your account info - your phone number plan..

It will fit, dont worry. just pop out the inner white portion and it will become Nano Sim

That looks like it will pop out just fine! Just apply a little pressure to the middle piece and the outside parts should pop off! Your sim card wont carry over any files, maybe some contacts and a few texts if you have saved them but most likely nothing will carry over.

No files, just the number.

If it is not a Telus or Koodo iphone then it needs to be unlocked first
