I have a Google nexus now and used to have a lg optimus. The Nexus' screen was broken and the digitizer is broken too. Is there any way to cancel the service on the nexus and reactivate the optimus?

All you need to do is get a sim card for the LG and use self serve to swap the service to the new sim. Then you can use your LG

If your old sim hasn't been inactive for 90 days you should be able to switch back to it. If it has you'll need a new one

I still have the sim card for the lg, koodo will let me do this even if I can't access anything on the nexus?
Thanks

Yes. You can change to any phone at any time. I've switched phones 4 times today by moving my sim card to the one I wanted to use.

The nexus does use one. It's in a drawer on the side of the phone

But you don't need that one as it's likely smaller than the one in your optimus
