Just got a z3 Xperia compact and changed my sin number so it would work on my old plan but the data won't work. I think it has something to do with not being able to change my phone type from Alcatel pixie to the Xperia on pre paid koodo, if anyone has any ideas or has felt with This before please help!

Have you bought a Data Booster? If not you  have SMS and voice only.
Does the new phone work otherwise (Voice and SMS)?

By "changed my sin number so it would work on my old plan" do you mean the new phone takes a different sized SIM than did your old phone?  If so, it may take a bit of time for all the different parts of the system to finalize.

As well as making sure you have the proper APNs and an active data booster, make sure you have restarted the phone. Resetting network settings you could also try if still having issues.
