My iPhone 4s screen and the front camera is like shattered and so is the back. I'm wondering if I could still switch iPhones? (5c)

You'll need a different SIM card (nano SIM), but that's all.

Yes as long as

It's unlocked

It's compatiable with koodo
Hsdpa 3g Bands 850 /1900, LTE (optional) band 4

Is not listed as lost or stolen

It won't cost you anything to swap your service to the new device but as Ivan mentioned, you'll need to buy a new Koodo Sim card.

Yes but just make sure it's unlocked and compatible with Koodo's frequencies. What phone were you thinking about, let us know and we can let you know if it will work on Koodo.
You will need to get a SIM Card from Koodo if the new phone takes a different sized SIM Card than the one you have now, they're $5 for postpaid and $20 for prepaid which includes $20 of prepaid service credits.

Do you have a Tab balance left? You will have to pay it off before getting a new phone on Tab.
