Activating a Unlocked iPhone with Koodo Prepaid


Hello. I'm just looking for some information regarding activating a used iPhone with Koodo Prepaid. Is it possible to buy a used unlocked iPhone and use it with Koodo prepaid? Do all iPhone models work with Koodo prepaid? I would ideally like to get an iPhone 4s or higher. Can I buy a used Koodo iPhone that is locked to Koodo postpaid and activate it on prepaid? Or does it have to be an unlocked iPhone? I am already with Koodo prepaid, and my phone takes a regular sized SIM card. Can I just transfer my account to a micro SIM card that fits in the iPhone? How? Is it possible to do this without a phone, or would I have to have the iPhone with me already to activate my account on the new micro SIM card? Thanks for looking.

Sorry! I just noticed the "Change SIM Card" option under my Self Serve options online. It says to just input my new SIM card number and hit "Submit". If I do this, does that mean that my new SIM card will be activated with my account?

Perfect, thanks! This means when I go to check out a used iPhone for sale, I can pop in the SIM card to make sure everything is working fine.

Or does it have to be an unlocked iPhone? ->Any koodo phone with a sim card can be used either on Koodo prepaid or Koodo postpaid. iPhones locked to Telus will work as well.

Just buy the new sim and swap it onto your existing account. You should be able to do this through self serve.
