A replacement prepaid SIM card costs $20, vin vin. You can then activate it in self service.

The store you go to will charge you for a replacement sim.

Unfortunately no, unless your booster balances are almost zero.
In that case, you can set up the new SIM as a new client and get a $20 credit on your new account. But your old account and boosters will be forfeited, including your phone number.

$20 credit is for new activations only, so my previous comments apply, unfortunately.

That is what Bob is talking about in his post.

Just to wear both belt and suspenders at the same time, if you can get to a Koodo dealer or booth, have them check your SIM in one of their phones and vice versa to make sure that's really the problem. That way you won't spend $20 for nothing in case the problem's elsewhere.

No you'll get a 3 in 1 sim. You wont get 3 sims in 3 different sizes.

Yes, that's one advantage to the new SIMs. The first punch-out (for the micro size) can then be further punched-out for the nano size, but not vice-versa.
And at least you saved a trip to a Koodo store since only those independent eBay suppliers seem willing to ship.

Good luck.

Whatever sim size you end up using just keep the pieces so you can put it back together and hopefully work in another phone with a different size.
