unlocked phone switch


I have been with Koodo long time last iphone 4 I had unlocked.
A friend of mine sold me her unlocked iphone 5s (Fido Phone). 
How do i switch the phone, just take out the sim card of the iphone 4 and install it in the iphone 5s

Yes that is the simple way untill the phone was properly unlocked. There should not be any problem. You keep going .

Yes, any unlocked phone can take any sim, As long as its a Canadian variant of the device, you should be fine!

Hello.

Unfortunately the SIM cards aren't the same size. You would need to buy a new one or cut the old one. IPhone 5S needs a nano SIM while the iPhone 4 has a micro SIM

yeah what he said! LOL. Cutting them is very simple. There is a ton of tutorials online. Just be careful!

Or, be carefree, and spend $5 to get a properly sized SIM which is less likely to damage your phone than a cut SIM.

I won't recommend cutting the sims, they may end up getting stucked inside the phone. I wouldn't risk it, you can visit a kiosk and see if they can switch it out for you for free or spend the $5.
