Trade phone


I got a rose gold iphone se in the beginning of december 2016, i am really unsatisfied with this iphone and i was wondering if i could take the phone back (its feb 2017 now) and trade for a samsung ? My current tab for it is $315.00 on a 2 year contract. The phone is still in new condition (screen protector and case). I still want to stay on this same contract tho but just trade phones... Help pls

You won't get back much Hailey, the 14 days in which you can exchange your phone are long over I'm afraid. You are much better off to sell your iPhone - the resale value is quite good on eBay or Kijiji and you will probably be able to buy yourself a new Samsung and then some!

Yes you can. Your phone plan, number, etc. is all stored on the sim card so you can swap it into a new phone every day if you like. As long as the sim is the right size which it should be as most new phones use nano sims now.

At bestbuy you will get $180 for the 16GB model and $210 for the 64GB.

Like Sophia said, you would be better off selling somewhere else, they sell for about $400-$500 on kijiji.

So even if its locked to koodo i could sell to best buy ? Im pretty sure these phones have nano sim cards, say if i got a samsung j3 or any other type of samsung I'd have to buy a new sim right ?

If the phones sim is not the same size then yes you'd have to buy a new SIM and transfer your service to it via self serve (very easy). Koodo postpaid Sims are 10$

Yes of course! This is if your local best buy is currently buying phones. Since you got the phone in December you should have received a tri-cut sim and if you kept the original card and adapters the sim came with you can pop the adapter on. The J3 uses micro sim but most new phones will use nano sim. Just look it up before hand to see what it uses.

iPhone SE to a Samsung J3 would be a huge downgrade even if you don't like iOS. Better get a Galaxy S6 which is on sale for $360.
You can sell the phone, pay off the Tab with the money and purchase the S6 on tab medium.

I would recommend the LG G5 or the Moto Z Play before the S6. Both newer phones at the same price point and with (in my opinion) better specs.

If i bought an unlocked phone from someone that was also on koodo, could it be used for both a prepaid phone or a contract ? For example if the phone i bought was on prepaid b4 can i put my sim card in it which is like a contract.

Yes, if it was on prepaid before you can use it on monthly, (assuming its a phone with a sim card tray which it mkst likely is). As soon as you take the sim card out all of your data on your plan comes with it. You may want to give your device a factory reset to get rid of all your personal information, (songs, apps, logins, etc.) but yes, all you need is your sim card. Refer to Mayumi's post for your last question.
