Samsung Galaxy S3 to Nexus 5X


Hello!

Kind of a noob when it comes to phones. I have a Samsung Galaxy S3, if I buy an unlocked Nexus 5X will I be able to swap out the SIM card inside and have it work right away? Or is there something more that needs to be done?

The S3 uses Micro-SIM where the Nexus 5x uses Nano-SIM. If you have a newer tricut sim with the S3 you can just snap it into a Nano-SIM, otherwise you will have to buy a new sim card.
Other than that though there is nothing else that you need to do.

Thanks so much for the quick reply! Will a new sim card mean a new phone number? Will I need to swap things around in my account settings on Koodo Self Serve?

Not at all. When you get your new sim card you will just login to self serve, find change phone, then you will input your new sim number and everything else stays the same! You will notice no changes to what you currently have.
