First you need to make sure that the phone your purchasing is compatible with Koodo frequencies . If the phone is compatible with Koodo then see what size sim card it uses and if it's the same size as the one you have in your present phone simply pull the sim out of your old phone and pop it into the new phone and away you go. If it's a different size then you'll need to visit your local Koodo kiosk and purchase a new sim card and activate it through your self serve account online then pop it in the new phone and away you go .

Some of the unlocked phones sold by Costco will lock to the provider as soon as the sim card is inserted and the phone powered up and some remain unlocked. To unlock the Costco phone you are directed to contact Costco.

This is definitely the case with their Samsung phones.
