The S3 uses a micro SIM, whereas all the recent iPhones 5 models use a nano SIM. So strictly speaking, you cannot take the micro SIM in the S3 and put it into an iPhone. You will need to go to Koodo and purchase a nano SIM then activate it on your account. Then you can your iPhone with your telephone number.

The iPhone 4/4S use a micro SIM. In this case, you can simply swap SIM.
Yeah i want a 4S, but i can sell the S3 if i transfer my sim ?

what do you mean transfer sim? just take your sim card out and keep it for your 4s and sell the s3 without a sim. :)

She means can she take the SIM card out of her S3 and put it in a 4S, which as you've stated, she can do.
