I'm not sure if the phone is compatible, but you can certainly buy a new SIM card and transfer your account and number!

Log into prepaid self service, https://prepaidselfserve.koodomobile.com
Then click Phone Services - Change SIM card. Then enter the long string of numbers on your new card. No need to call or visit a store, it can easily be done online :)

The A2017G model should be fully compatible with Koodo. The A2017 would work on 3G but not LTE.
If you wish to check the compatibility of any other phones, willmyphonework.net is an excellent resource.

Looks like it should be compatible, although it is possible that only one of the two sim slots will work. Dual sim phones usually have one slot that is 2G only, and Koodo doesn't have a 2G network.
