It's only one tab at a time. The exception might be if you wanted a second phone and can qualify for it on a credit check, but you would still be stuck to carry a separate plan and tab on the first one. I don't think that's what your looking for, but it probably answers your question.

You could pick up an unlocked phone on Kijiji, eBay or whatever for cash, use your current SIM and plan in it and try selling your existing phone while maintaining your current plan and tab.

unless they changed the rules recently, I believe you need to pay off your old tab before you can start a new one

This was mandated by the CRTC several years ago now, I believe.
