To test a new phone, can I use a Koodo prepaid sim card from my old phone, and switch it to a potential new phone? Then, if all goes well, switch the sim card back into my old phone and purchase a new sim card and plan for the new phone?

Yes, but only if the SIM card is still active, flyersfan. You can move it around all you want, no repercussions :)

Hi Sophia. Thanks for all of your help on this matter, so far. To move sim cards around, is there where I go to:

So an activated sim card can just be placed into another phone, and it should work. If all goes well?

You are AWESOME!! I missed these chats. How familiar are you with the Huawei Ascend P7? I need to check some settings to make sure it isn't set to 2G or GSM only.

*grow*

However, sadly I don't know Huawei as a brand at all......... but usually data settings on most cellphones can be found in the connection settings, try to locate Mobile Networks or something... then you should probably find Mobile Data / Roaming / Network Mode. It's the Network Mode you want.

I have the S5 currently and it says "LTE/WCDMA/GSM (auto connect)" but it's different with various phones. But hopefully it's a nudge in the right direction :)

It's easy when you know how. Thank You. I put an active micro sim card into the boys phone. Tweaked a few settings, and it works like a dream. What todays youth couldn't solve in a week, dear old dad solved in under 30 minutes. LOL!!
