You can buy direct from BlackBerry via shop.blackberry.com If you want to use tab to finance it. Grab a different device on tab and sell it.

I've honestly never thought about that. That's genius!
Thank you for quick reply.
So I must buy at blackberry.com.  Will I be able to still use Koodo?  Sorry I don't understand at what you mean to grab different device on tab and sell it.  If you mean buy a blackberry at blackberry.com then buy another phone at Koodo just to sell - that isn't possible.  Just want to get blackberry and would like to use my Koodo tab and the Koodo plan.  Is that possible or must I leave Koodo if I get a new blackberry?

Koodo doesn't sell the new blackberry devices at the moment so if you want one you're going to need to buy it on your own from BlackBerry or pickup a used compatible device from eBay or kijiji. You can recoup the costs by getting a different device using your tab and selling it on eBay or kijiji. Depending on your plan, you may or may not be able to keep it. For instance BlackBerry social doesn't work on the new BlackBerry devices. If you're okay with older technology, you can pick up a pre-owned BlackBerry Curve using your tab. https://shop.koodomobile.com/certifiedpreowned/c99999905-p0.html

If you really want a Blackberry buy it directly from Blackberry so that it's unlocked. Also, you'll get a 10% discount for bringing your own phone and you have the freedom of leaving anytime.

Buying direct is a lot cheaper. Passport locked is 750$ from Telus and Bell. 699$ unlocked from Blackberry
