Can I put my Bold's sim into a Telus Q5 prepaid?


My "tab" is almost paid off on my Bold's Koodo monthly plan. BestBuy is selling prepaid Q5s for $100. Can I buy one and take the sim card out of the Bold and put it in the Q5 and throw away the sim from the Q5? Will the Bold's phone number and monthly Koodo plan just continue with the Q5 or is there more I must do? Maybe this is not even possible?

You're fine and you don't need to change your plan

If the SIM are different sizes, and Best Buy provides an unactivated Koodo SIM at time of purchase, you can transfer your account info to the new SIM through self-serve. Search for 'Changing SIM' or 'Updating SIM' in this community for lots more info.

Prepaid Sims aren't compatiable with postpaid accounts

Missed that the Q5 was a prepaid phone. Oops!
