I currently am on a koodo plan, but its quite expensive so i want to switch to public mobile, but my phone doesnt support esim, so i want to know if i will be able to use PM with my current sim card or if i will have to get a new sim card from public mobile to be able to use their service.

Most likely, but I've heard not all stores have them. No harm in checking. You can also get it on Amazon for $5 or the one shipped from Public Mobile to me came in about a week

@Munee_b   You would just ask for a Public Mobile sim card.  Not all Telus/Koodo stores  have them, click on the link at the bottom of this page "Pick Up A Sim Card" and then call the nearest store/s to see if they have them in stock.

Hey, do you know what I need to ask for exactly from them? Do I just tell them i need sim card for public mobile? I have a koodo store relatively nearby where i got my initial package from, could I request it from them?

@Munee_b  You will need to get a new Public Mobile sim card.  Best to get it from a Telus/Koodo corporate store or from Amazon since ordering direct from Public Mobile can take anywhere from several days to about 3 weeks.  Edited to add, they are not free from Telus/Koodo stores or Amazon whereas they are currently free to new subscribers direct from Public Mobile.  There is a chance that if you buy one from those sources then contact Public Mobile customer support they may give you a credit.  My sim from Public Mobile only took a week but some people report taking much longer so it's a gamble.
