Can I sell a phone I still have a tab on?, can I just get an unlocked phone and put my SIM card with my info on it and continue paying it?

Am I able to sell the phone I currently have (iPhone se) that I am still paying off on a tab and get an unlocked phone & switch my SIM card over (get a new SIM card for the new phone & put my information onto that one) and then just continue paying the payments?

Yes. You may be able to simply move the SIM from your current phone to the new one, if both take the same sized SIM.

You sure can the tab is connected to your account not the phone so you can sell it anytime. Just remove the SIM Card to put into your new phone if they're the same size. If they're a different size you'll just need to purchase a new SIM Card from your local Koodo kiosk and attach your account to the new SIM and pop it in the new phone.

I’m looking to switch from the iPhone SE to the Samsung S5. So , I would have to go get a new SIM card and get my info switched over to that SIM card... would they allow me to do that?

Yeah it's a different size so you'll need to go get a new one from your local Koodo kiosk The iPhone takes the smallest SIM a Nano and the S5 takes a Micro SIM the middle size.
They may be able to activate the new SIM on your account there at the kiosk or you'll have to send Koodo a private message to their FB page or Twitter account where they can verify your account and further assist on the SIM swap.
