Can a prepaid sim card be used on an unlocked cellphone? (I'm thinking about trying a SKY Device)

Need a new phone, interested in the Blu/Sky devices, because of the prices. I currently have a prepaid sim card with koodo, I heard that you can't use a pre paid sim card on an unlocked phone, that it would have to be pay as you go. Sounds a little hokey, but thought i would double check. Just trying to figure this all out before I buy.

Yes, you can use a prepaid Koodo SIM card with an unlocked phone.

Check out the exact model of phone you want at willmyphonework.net

If the handset is compatible and unlocked, there is no reason a Koodo prepaid SIM won't work in it.

The only sky devices that use 4G LTE are the 5.0L, 5.0LW and the 5.5L. If you are interested in using LTE than this is something you should consider

I believe you are referring to the Sky 5.5L and yes, it will work on 3G and LTE networks for Koodo.
Koods networks are as follows for future reference:
HSPA 850/1900
LTE 1700/2100
