Hey Koodo community and Mobile Masters.
So basically I have the "Canada Wide Double Promo 30" plan since late 2012, which includes 150 daytime minutes, evening and weekends@7PM, unlimited SMS/MMS and 200 MB data (with overages at 2 cents/MB - which I love). On top of that I have a positive balance of $50-ish and I have 10% off my plan so I pay just $27/month.
My current plan fits my needs perfectly (I never exceeded the minutes included in my plan) but my phone (unlocked Galaxy S Glide, originally from Rogers) is getting old, and the headphone hole works intermittent so I can't enjoy listening to music as much as I want to. So I'm looking for a new phone.
A brand new Galaxy S3 is what I was considering, but according to the new Koodo policy that came along the current plans, if I bought a new phone I'd have to pick one of the new plans (which I definitely don't want). And even if I bought my phone outright to have no balance I'd keep my plan but lose the 10% off - which I don't want.
But, just yesterday, I went into a 3rd party seller (Best Buy Mobile) and was told by the seller that if I picked a Koodo Galaxy S3 from them my plan wouldn't be affected (and, I believe, the 10% off would stay).
Can you guys confirm that? (I don't mind not using my positive balance, keeping the plan and the 10% off is my priority)
