Do both phones require the same sim card size?

Just make sure that each sim is active at least once every three months or it will be permanently deactivated.

Yes the 2 phones can use the same sim card thats why I was thinking If i can get 2 of the same sim card for the 2 phones so i can take one as needed with me other then haveing to keep swaping the sim cards all the time.

But I think I can only have the one card 
If I can get 2 sim cards for the same phone number that be great let me know if not I will swap them as needed but its a pain were they are in cases

If they are the same size, just take the sim out of one and put it in the other

Get a second SIM card for the second phone. Port your main number to a VoIP service. New numbers for both phones. VoIP service will simulring both new numbers. Your existing contacts will never know the difference, except for texting. CallCentric can do it for a few bucks a month, and you can do almost free calling to any number in the US or Canada when in wifi range.
You will be forced to pay for 2 plans, though. One for each Koodo number. [:-(

Or set ‘call forward no answer’ on primary phone to call second phone.
