Prepaid customer changing to new phone / SIM card


Hello,

I'm a prepaid customer and recently broke my phone and am looking to replace it but have some questions.

1) How can I know what phones are compatible with Koodo's network? Most of the models I'm interested in aren't sold on Koodo's website, but unless I have the phone in my hand to check the IMEI I'm not sure what I can check to make sure my future phone will work fine on Koodo's network.

2) My current/broken phone has a micro-SIM card, and by the looks of it most newer phones use a nano-SIM card. What is the process of changing my number/account from one SIM card to another? Is any information lost as part of the change in SIM cards?

Thanks!

1. Try https://willmyphonework.net/ for compatibility.
2. When you have your new SIM, log in to prepaid self-serve and go to Phone Services > Change SIM Card to enter the number. If you had an Android phone you likely have your contacts backed up in your Google account, so you shouldn't lose anything.

1) Try this website: willmyphonework.net You're looking for 3G: 850 and 1900, LTE: Band 4 (1700/2100), LTE-a: Band 7, 700MHz frequencies 2) Buy a new prepaid sim card and do a sim swap. If that feature is still disabled via self serve you'll have to contact Koodo to change it over for you.
