Buying Nexus 5 on google play


Hi, I'm wondering if I could buy the Nexus 5 on google play and then take it to koodo. It's cheaper and has more memory. Are all nexus 5 automatically unlocked?! Basically, would I just need to pay out my negative balance to get the 10% off my monthly plan? Thank you! 🙂

Yes All nexus devices are factory unlocked Yes on the tab issue.
All Nexus phones are factory unlocked, regardless of where you buy them. Yes you can get the 10% discount if you pay out the remainder of your tab.
Thank you both!!! Just wondering as well, would I be able to keep the same phone number?!

Yes, basically you're just transferring your service from your old sim card to your new one (if needed) everything else stays the same. If your current sim card is the same size as what the N5 requires, all you have to do is put your existing sim card into the new phone.
Yes to all but you do not have to pay out the tab if you don't want to. you could just switch the phone and let the tab get paid off by koodo. Then get the 10% discount.

That's true, right now your tab is being paid by Koodo, since you're not going to use your tab, it kind makes sense not to pay off something you don't have to pay
Thank you all for the quick reply! It helped me a lot!!
