I have an old CDMA phone that I used to use for a monthly plan (Samsung SCH-U430). Can I give it to a friend for them to use for prepaid? Or is she required to use a prepaid SIM on a GSM phone?

CDMA devices won't work on Prepaid. Unfortunately I believe Telus shut down their CDMA network so that phone won't work at all anymore.
