$20. Rare as hen's teeth outside of Koodo boutiques. Most retail partners do not carry them. Sometimes available on eBay.ca. You are looking for the prepaid micro version with the purple background.

If you are a new activation you get a $20 credit to your account to cover the cost of the SIM. Switching from Koodo post-paid to pre-paid counts as a new activation.

Best price will be from a repair outlet or independent booth in a mall that sells accessories. You can check Kijiji.ca listings to see who repairs cell phones in your neck of the woods.

If you have a tray style which the iPhones do I'd stay away from SIM Card adapters as they can easy Come loose and get the entire tray stuck. It's worth the $20 to get a new one especially with the activation credits which make it basically $0

Not a new activation, Paul, unless she wants to go for a new number, etc. So no $20 credit to go back to the 4, then another $20 spent on a new nano eventually upgrade to something more permanent. Opinions obviously differ on tray use, but I gather like this is a temporary solution, probably worth the risk. $40 to buy in into Koodo's version of using a prepaid nano sim twice doesn't ring right with me.

If customer finally upgrades for a 6 or something else, nobody will care about the old 4 as long as the SIM is intact IMHO.

If Koodo had a more reasonable policy regarding prepaid SIMS (multi-use, availability on-line and reasonable pricing) we wouldn't be having this discussion at all.

I have to agree with Paul, adapters and SIM cutting all make it more likely for the phone's sim tray to break. Definitely worth the 20$ instead of risking breaking a phone.
