All you need to do put your SIM from your old phone to the new one. If its not the same size you'll need a new prepaid SIM but you can easily transfer your service to the new SIM via self serve.

Or you can cut the old SIM to size. It's a bit risky, but if it works you'll save yourself $20. If it doesn't work, well, you were going to get a new SIM anyway.

EDIT: Stupid Image html not working. I found instructions here: http://nybblesbytes.blogspot.ca/2014/...

Hi Harry,

Did you buy a new SIM card?

After that you'll need to log into self service using this link: https://prepaidselfserve.koodomobile....

Then click the tab "Base Plan & Boosters", then "Change SIM Card".

Enter the number that is on the back of your new SIM card there and it will be registered with Koodo with your old account and your number :)

Then insert it in your new phone - DONE :D
