Is the Koodo prepaid sim card the same for iPhone 4/5s? I have an iPhone 4 koodo prepaid sim card and I'm curious if I can use it in an iPhone 5s. Also, will a Koodo prepaid sim card work in an iPhone 5s locked through Telus (not sure if either prepaid or postpaid)?

The iPhone 4 uses Micro Sim where the 5s uses nano sim. If you have a tricut sim you can pop out the nano sim. If not, you'll need to purchase a new sim card.
Yes, you can use a Telus phone with Koodo.

What is a tricut sim? Do I not have another option (besides purchasing a new one)? Also, I'm planning to purchase a used phone and I'm curious if an unactivated sim would still allow me to make calls/receive messages? I'm planning to just buy a new sim card just before I meet with the seller and I don't think I have time to get it activated.. Or could I have it activated at the koodo store after I purchase it?

You can ask to meet the seller at a Koodo shop to try their phone with an active SIM there.

Thanks. I changed my sim card on my current account. I'd like to know if I can still get the 100 free minutes and the $20 activation that I can put towards renewing the plan? I purchased the new sim card and the last time I did that I was about to get $20 towards purchasing the base plan.

The 100 free min is for when you set up pre auth payments and the $20 is an activation credit.
If you created a new account than you would have access to both of these, but as you used it on your current account you cant get either.

Crap I didn't know that.. Is there any way I could reactivate it using another account? I asked the employee about it and he said I could still get the activation credit. Does the price of the koodo prepaid sim card vary depending on whether the sim card is activated with a new or different account?

Nope, it is always $20, just they give you a credit if you are using to activate a new prepaid account.
