Hi katgirl,

Yes you can. However, you will be closing your monthly account and starting a new account with Koodo where you will need to purchase a new SIM card for 20$

SIM only available at Koodo kiosk. The $20 purchase price is credited to your new prepaid account on activation, so the net cost is zero.

Once you have the prepaid SIM in hand, the whole deal is done online by registering for prepaid. Your final bill on monthly, including what's left of your tab, is done automatically during the transfer, so don't close your post-paid account before switching.

A minor concern for most people but worth mentioning: you will lose call forwarding, extended roaming in Canada and any use of the phone whatsoever outside Canada.

The prepaid SIMs are also available at some Telus stores, such as here in St Thomas Ontario
