This is a public forum so most of us are just customers like you. That said I'm looking at the telus site and the iPhone 5s 16gb is $100 and you have to get a minimum of $70 for a plan. In any case I'm pretty sure the phones between telus koodo work just fine.

You can, but then you will have a 2 year contract with telus. And if yoyu cancel it you have to pay full price for the phone, which means you might as well buy the phone unlocked direct from apple.
would like to no if koodo will do that deal to i would like to get to phone if it is. I looked at telous there website and it says 100 dollars for the 16 gb and 150 for the 32 gb can koodo do the same for me?

Hi Glenn, In short: no. The reason TELUS offers these phones for so much less up front, is because you'll be stuck with a $80 plan or more. Koodo offers lower rates plans with more minutes/data, but you pay more up front for the phone, based on the Tab you choose There is Tab S, where you pay most for the phone and Tab M, where you pay less up front and $5 on top of your plan. There is also Tab L which is more in line with Telus' prices: horrible plans but you pay less or nothing for the phone up front. It's a choice you have to make for yourself: if you want instant gratification (low phone price) but high plan cost, go with TELUS. If you can afford it, pay a little extra for the phone up front and get all the goodies Koodo has to offer, for a lower monthly price. Can't have your cake and eat it too (or eat your cake and have it, whichever is more correct haha) 🙂 🙂

If you get the phone on a contract then you'd have to have service from Telus for 2 years and pay for that service so not getting why you'd get the phone from Telus on subsidy then change to Koodo since you'd just have to pay the full price for the phone once you switch to Koodo. Koodo also doesn't have contracts they have tabs that get paid off a little each month part by Koodo and part by yourself. You could get the 5s from Koodo for $75 at the time of purchase if you get a large tab which you need to get a large tab plan and you also have a $10 per month tab charge for the next 2 years or until the tab is paid in full whichever comes first.

You would have to change your plan to one of the Tab L plans, Glenn, if you want to pay $75 for the phone.

What does your current plan have Glenn?

The current $50 and $60 plans are a lot better than the Tab L plans.  Over the 2 year period you actually pay a lot more just to get the iPhone for $75 on Tab L.

You save more money when going on Tab M.  Like you save over $100+ over the term of your tab

If you want a Tab L you must change to a Tab L plan.  

We highly recommend you go with Tab M.

Tab L is a rip off that takes advantage of customers who cant/dont want to pay more upfront for their phone.

When in Canada If you go with a high subsidy and ignore the higer monthly plans you have just been cheated by the cell phone companies

It's so simple Glenn. Option 1 - Switch to Tab L, get the phone for $75. Option 2 - Keep your plan, get the phone for $275. You HAVE to make a choice.
