What sim card is right for my phone? I have a Sony Experia, and an HTC Raider that I would like to switch over to Koodo. How do I find the correct sim card? I have to order it online as I live over 6 hours away from the nearest Koodo store.
How come I can't go to Future Shop, or any other kiosk in the mall to pick up a sim card?

Well, what card does it say you need?

By what I read on the internet you will need :
MICRO-SIM for the Sony and regular SIM for the HTC!

Prepaid SIM cards are separate from monthly/Tab SIM cards, that's why. Only certain stores or Koodo shops have them. Online ordering seems to be your best bet.

Which Xperia is it? That's only the lineup's name, not an actual model. It would be like me saying "I have the Samsung Galaxy" when there's like 50 million Galaxies lol. It could be the Ion, J, U, M, S, SP, T, ZL, Z, Z1, Z Ultra, the list goes on... let us know and we'll tell you.

The HTC Raider uses a regular sized SIM card but it is LTE capable. Very few phones were like this; the only other phones that come to mind is the Optimus LTE and Xperia Ion that were released a few years ago. Most of the newer models switched over to micro SIM.

Raider was the first LTE phone in Canada, I believe. I used it for a while and it was a brick, man - I could hurt someone with that phone. Only design flaw is the battery cover pops off too easily.

It is the Sony Xperia ZL C6506, and the HTC Raider X710a. The sim cards are wanted for the prepaid plans.
Thanks.

Sony Xperia ZL C6506 - Micro Sim
HTC Raider X710a - Mini-SIM, which I assume is a micro sim.

No, it's regular SIM. Mini SIM is considered "regular", which is a little misleading... but I have used the phone before.

So, the Sony will have the Micro sim, and the HTC a regular sim?
I just removed them from the phones, and yes, the HTC's sim is much larger.
Thanks again.
