I have a phone with Koodo and it has a full size sim card. I've been thinking about buying Google's Nexus 4 but that takes a micro sim. Can i go to a koodo booth and get my regular sized sim switched to a micro sim?

You will need to buy a micro sim card.

How much will that cost? So it will still have the same plan and number on it? i'm assuming they take my old sim.

It costs the same as the other sim cards. $10. They won't take your old sim. They have no reason to. Everything else will stay the same.

If your on prepaid the Micro SIM for prepaid is $20 instead of $10 for some odd reason

All of prepaid sim cards are $20. It costs more than an postpaid sim card since prepaid customers are less "committed" I am assuming.

You can also buy a sim adaptor to use your micro sim in your original phone if the need ever arises.

If I was you, I'd get a sim card cutter from China on Ebay. It works perfectly and without any trouble. Very cheap too (like 2-5$).

I have a SIM cutter that I bough off of eBay which cost me about $5. If you want something immediate and free:

I wouldn't always recommend using an adapter to go back to a full SIM. If it's a slot-loaded SIM, you may break a contact pin which may be impossible to repair without replacing the logic board, depending on your phone model.
