Activating a Unlocked iPhone with Koodo Prepaid

Hello. I'm just looking for some information regarding activating a used iPhone with Koodo Prepaid.

Is it possible to buy a used unlocked iPhone and use it with Koodo prepaid?

Do all iPhone models work with Koodo prepaid? I would ideally like to get an iPhone 4s or higher.

Can I buy a used Koodo iPhone that is locked to Koodo postpaid and activate it on prepaid? Or does it have to be an unlocked iPhone?

I am already with Koodo prepaid, and my phone takes a regular sized SIM card. Can I just transfer my account to a micro SIM card that fits in the iPhone? How? Is it possible to do this without a phone, or would I have to have the iPhone with me already to activate my account on the new micro SIM card?

Thanks for looking.

Sorry! I just noticed the "Change SIM Card" option under my Self Serve options online. It says to just input my new SIM card number and hit "Submit". If I do this, does that mean that my new SIM card will be activated with my account?

Perfect, thanks! This means when I go to check out a used iPhone for sale, I can pop in the SIM card to make sure everything is working fine.

->Any iphone 3GS or newer will work with Koodo.

->Any koodo phone with a sim card can be used either on Koodo prepaid or Koodo postpaid. iPhones locked to Telus will work as well.

->Yes. Just buy the new sim and swap it onto your existing account. You should be able to do this through self serve.
