I'd recommend you put a Seasonal Hold on your Canadian account - 10$/mos.
Then get your phone unlocked-->
Then get a local pre-paid SIM from T-Mobile when you're in Arizona.

Just to add, if you put your account on Seasonal Hold, upon your return you can only choose a plan that's currently offered by Koodo. If you're on a promo plan from before, you won't be able to get it again.

Another option is: if you live in an area with Wind Mobile coverage, and you are planning to travel frequently to US, switch to Wind Mobile. You can then use your Canadian phone number in US at very reasonable rates: 20 cents/min or $10/month unlimited!
