This might be a dumb question but here it goes:
So my HTC I've had for almost 3 years is acting up, freezing, glitching, the whole nine yards. Anyway, I would love to get a new phone. My tab is now only $12, so if I want to do a hardware upgrade, could I get a fancy new phone for cheaper than what is advertised on the tab options after I finish paying the tab? Or would I still have to pay up front what is advertised like anybody else? (what I mean is, are customers offered hardware upgrade deals for being with Koodo for a certain amount of time, paying bills on time, paying off tab, etc?)

Hi Ashh,

You will get the fancy new phone at the price that is advertised I'm afraid but there is a new Tab system since you got your HTC... you can now choose between Tab S ($150 subsidy) or Tab M ($300).

With Tab M you need to have a plan higher than $30 and contribute $5 yourself, but it's what most customers prefer, it's the best value :)

Thank you both for your answers. I do like that it is fair and equal among customers.
I'm excited to get a new phone soon!
(Just wish they weren't so much, but hey, I'll just steer clear of the iPhone) :P

Steering clear of iPhones, this is music to my ears :) I hope you enjoy your next phone, Ashh!

You know Ashh,

If you want a decent phone for a really good price, consider to buy the Moto G from Walmart outright. It is around $150 right now and it comes with a prepaid SIM card $20 worth. You could easily sell it for $10 or so and use the phone itself with your Koodo plan.

When your Tab is paid off, ask for a 10% discount on your plan. A win all around :D
