I'm looking at buying a new prepaid phone and I was wondering how I get a new phone (still through Koodo) and keep the same number?

Just take the SIM card out of the old phone and place it in the new one when it arrives. Done.

Now if it's a different size, then you'll have to go buy a new one and activate it on your account but again, the SIM card is what handles your phone #, not the phone itself.

The Samsung Galaxy S5? No, that takes a micro SIM and the iPhone 8 uses a nano sim.
You can always get a new SIM though or if you purchase the iPhone 8 online with Koodo you will see you get a new SIM card for free.

Once you have a SIM of the right size in hand, contact Koodo and they will step you through the process. You will need to have the number of the new SIM handy. Once that step is complete, put the new SIM in your iPhone, and turn it on.
