You can sell your old phone to Koodo for not much or sell it on Kijiji and get more. Are you getting a discount now for being a SIM only customer? The answer to your question depends on what tab you'll use to buy your new phone and how much you get for your S3.

Hi Emily,

If you decided to buy the Samsung Galaxy S5 your options are as follows:

Buy the phone out right for $725 and you can take advantage of a 10% discount off of your monthly price plan or you have the option of choosing between three different tab types as well. Tab Small - this takes up to $150 off the retail price of the device.
- Example the phone is $725 without a tab.
Phone with tab small is $575, plus this allows you to have any plan for a postpaid account on the device.

Tab Medium - this takes up to $300 off the phone but requires a $5 tab charge added to your monthly plan to help pay it back faster
- Phone would be $425 with a Medium Tab.

And finally,

Tab large - takes up to $500 off the retail price off of a phone (though this method is not always recommended) and you are required to sign up for a tab large plan (starting at $70/month)

The cheapest method is to go with the medium tab as it is cheaper than the other tabs in the long run.

Hope this helps 🙂
