If your getting a phone on the new tab system, and getting normal tab you pay 15$ a month to cover the cost of the phone. If it says 0$. than that means you pay nothing UP FRONT and pay 15$ on top of your monthly bill , if it says $150 and a tab of 15$ a month than you pay $150 up front and tab payments every month on top of your bill of 15$

What phone are you looking to get and we can explain your options which are to pay for the phone in full at time of purchase or put part of the phone on a regular tab and pay up to $15 per month for 24 months or put part of the price of the phone on the large tab and pay up to $21 per month for the tab payments for 24 months.
Hi Paul, thank you for your help. I would like to chose between LG G3 (tab $0+15$/month), Moto G (3 gen) has tab $0+10$/month, and Nexus 5x (tab 150$ + 15/month). Currently I paid off my tab and have nothing owe to KOODO. My current phone is Moto G, but I love Samsung. Nexus 5 is better than Samsung according to reviews. Could you please clarify what I will pay on top of my plan in these cases (below). Thanks. Andrey.

WIth the LG G3, you will pay 0$(normal tab) up front when u get the phone and 15$ on top of your base plan.
With the Moto G you will pay 0$(normal tab) upfront and 10$ on top of your base plan
With the Nexus 5x you will pay 150$(normal tab) up front plus 15$ a month on top of your base plan. All tabs are for 24 months.

The Moto G is a very decent phone. But i have a soft spot for Nexus phones as they are fully customizable(if your into that) but also simple if your not that tech savvy.
The LG G3 is my current daily driver and i have nothing bad to say so also a good choice there.

I confused now. If I need to pay 150$ upfront, then what the role of the tab? Is the tab 150 (normal tab) will cover up front payment? If I able to move up front payment to my 150 tab, then what the monthly payments to reduce tab balance?

With the tab trick it makes complicated. The best way to avoid to get the phone from KOODO. What happen if I will buy the unlocked phone ACER Liquid Z630 from Costco? Then just buy SIM card from KOODO. It will be much cheaper.

Its really not complicated at all.
Just make sure that phone(Acer) is compatible with Koodo, you can do that through self serve on the website or from www.willmyphonework.net.
The tab payments 15$/24 months cover the cost of the phone after u pay 150$. So its 360$ worth of tab payment's monthly PLUS the 150$ making it 510$ TOTAL for the phone. The role of the tab is to spread the cost of the phone over the 24 months but Tab Normal can only be up to 360$ of the phone . The 150$ is what u pay upfront to get u to the tab amount of 360$ there is so many little videos made by koodo explaining Tab in case my explanation is a little rough. Best of luck.

Tab is like an interest free loan now and you can put up to $360 on it.
Then you will pay back $15/mo for 24 months.

Example
If you want $360 phone with Tab:
$0 upfront + $15/mo for 24 months

If you want $500 phone with Tab:
$140 upfront +$15/mo for 24 months

If you want $900 phone with Tab:
$540  upfront +$15/mo for 24 months....

So, Nexus 5x is more expensive phone than  LG G3 or Moto G (3 gen). That's why you have to pay $150 upfront.

Thank you everybody!
It is clear now, and I am sorry for my confusion. It happened because I got my first phone absolutely free years ago and never used the tab.
