No it must be through Rogers. If your spouse is no longer interested with Rogers you'll just need to get anyone who is with Rogers to request it. Otherwise just swap Sims and you're good to go. Make sure you don't forget to do the following: https://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT201351

You meant switching iphones only, while keeping same number and carriers?
Yes, you could switch, but you properly have to call Rogers to unlock Rogers iphone. I don't think Koodo can unlock phones that didn't belong to them.

You could use the nanoSIM from the 5s, it should be fine.

No, it will be free because of the new CRTC regulations

If your phone is a Rogers, you have to go to Rogers to get it unlocked. Koodo/Telus only unlock Koodo/Telus phones.
