The Nexus 5 is unlocked already. You will still pay the $35/month until you cancel in which you will also pay the Tab.
What is the tab? so , if i remove the sim card I can sell the phone and they wont have my koodo account and koodo will ONLY charge the 35$

No the tab is the price of the phone. It is roughly $350 that's the reason the phone is $0 because the full retail gets put on the Tab. To activate a phone like that and cancel you'll pay $35+Tab. Which will end up being almost $400 You'll be lucky to get $350 for that phone on resale.

so if it's unlocked , i pop out the sim card then i can just sell the phone for 300$ ? without it being connected too my koodo account , and i will just have too pay the 35$ per month anyway , no other charges ?

You will either pay $35/month for 24 months until the Tab is paid off or cancel and pay the Tab off. Which will be about $350-$400 after taxes. There is no profit to be made doing what your trying to do.

Yup + the monthly tab charge if you're on tab M.

You can call Koodo as well to find out how much the cancellation charges will be. To give you a better idea of how much it's going to cost you.
