Go for it. If the chip required is the same size as the one you already use you won't even need to get a new one.

But first, is it a Koodo Blackberry? If not it will likely need to be unlocked. (Also if not, what's your wife doing NOT with Koodo?)

And what model of Blackberry is it? Any Blackberry OS from before BB10 requires a Blackberry specific plan to have access to mobile data, so keep that in mind.

The blackberry is unlocked but when I put the Koodo chip in to it, it did not find the Koodo network. I went to our local Koodo agent who was less than helpful

By any chance is this the Rogers 8320/8330? Look underneath the battery and tell us what the model is.

The phone displays at the top "SIM not provisioned:2"

Did you activate the sim card on your number (or another way of checking does your old phone still work?)

The old phone works fine when I put the SIM back into it

Bless Telus, how can I overcome this?

That doesn't apply to your torch so I deleted my comments

It is the Blackberry 9800 and yes, I do use it in UK when I go without problem
