If I buy an iPhone on eBay and put my SIM card in it from my current phone will it work? Will anything about my current plan change?


I have a blackberry curve currently. I want to upgrade yo the iPhone. I know I can get them in eBay. I just want to know that if i do go and buy one I will be able to use it on kodoo by just taking the SIM card out of my current phone and placing it in the iphone

Yes the phone will work if your blackberry and the iPhone take the same size sim card and IF the iPhone is unlocked. What model of iPhone are you looking at buying and what blackberry do you have (as far as the sim card goes). Some blackberry data add ons (such as social networking) are not compatible with iPhones so you may have to change your plan in order to get data working.

BB plans will work with other phones like Android or iPhone but iPhone / Android type plans won't work on a BB. The BB add-ons just won't work like Jorden said so you'll have to drop those. If you have any plan of switching back to your BlackBerry if something happens to the iPhone you may want to keep the BB plan though, or grab the BB version of whatever plan you change to

You aren't very likely to find an unlocked iPhone on eBay for a decent price. Otherwise, it has to be a Koodo or Telus branded iPhone. Have you considered buying locally via Kijiji (if that's an option where you live)?

Also if you buy the iPhone from Koodo you may be able to take advantage of Koodo's trade in program to trade in your old phone for some credits towards the new iPhone. You'll usually get more selling it on kijiji or something like that but if you want the convenience the trade in program is an option.
Yes the phone will work if your blackberry and the iPhone take the same size sim card and If the iPhone is unlocked.But if you have a network locked iphone means,you will need to unlock your iphone.For unlocking use http://www.onlinegsmunlock.com/apple-iphone/rs5wp9/
