Absolutely
Koodo and telus network are the same .. Or almost
But they are cross compatible
The only thibg you would need is a sim card adapter

Hi Noah,

The Telus sim card cannot be activated on Koodo. They may be the same network but they are different companies so you'll need a new Koodo sim card in order to use it on Koodo. If the sim card you have from your Koodo phone is the same size you could simply swap the sim card from the old phone to the new one.

Hope that helps

If it doesnt use the same sim card size you would need one
Its a little piece of plastic of the size of a micro sim with a slot in it for a nano sized one

You can buy one from a Koodo kiosk or retailer. No your tab doesn't need to be paid off.
I have a Samsung s5 with telus so I can get a sim card from koodo and put it in the phone and it will work on a telus phone.
Koodo plane sorry.

Hi there,

That's correct, most newer phones from Telus or Koodo can be used on one another just by simply switching the sim cards without having to unlock them beforehand.

Hope that helps answer your question. :)
