Can I pay off Tab Plus immediately?


Hey everyone. I've been with Koodo for a couple years and am in desperate need of a new phone! Luckily, I've accumulated a positive tab balance and am looking to upgrade to an iPhone 6 16GB (https://www.koodomobile.com/phones/iphone-6-16-gb). Can I take advantage of the $270 activation credit by going with Tab Plus, paying it off in full immediately ($21*24 = $504), and switching to a non-Tab Plus plan? I would also like to unlock it as I am traveling abroad in the near future.

Unfortunately I don't believe so, Aaron. I've been told that the Tab Plus activation bonus' is just for new activation's only.

No, bonus.gifts are for new acts only. The "activation credits" directly impact the price of the phone so they're fair game to everyone.

I don't see why it shouldn't work as long as you're not cancelling service. I think your method is fine. Unlocking costs $35 from Koodo, but it's totally worth it for iPhones. Using a third party is considerably more expensive.

Will I be eligible to unlock the phone right away? I've heard that there is some sort of 90 day policy.

Thanks for that BobTheElectrician. Been with Koodo for a few years so I should be good to go!
