Do I need to buy another SIM card if I buy the Alcatel phone that takes a standard card? I have an iPhone 7 with a nano SIM card from koodo.

hi Hannah,
Which Alcatel model was it? if it is Alcatel onetouch, you could use the nano SIM in it.

Normally, you could use a SIM adapter to use a smaller size SIM into a bigger size. You could also visit a Koodo kiosk and buy another tri-cut SIM (that could fit any SIM size) and switch SIM.

If you are buying the phone from Koodo they normally come with a Sim card. At least when buying online they do. Plus when buying online you save the $30 Sim activation fee.

If your iphone used a sim from koodo, was a it tri-cut sim?  If so, if you have the card with the sim that sill has the tri-cut portions, you can just snap back your nano sim into the tri-cut piece and use it in your Standard sim Alcatel
