You could wait for an offer to go your way, but if you need a phone fast, you might want to visit a store and see if they sell a refurbished phone. You can also check self service what upgrades you are eligible for and with which tab. Here is a list of current offers available: https://www.koodomobile.com/phones#deals

You will need to pay off your old tab before you can get a new phone on the tab... in case you weren't aware of that :)

Hey thanks for your reply.
My phone was originally from bell but the contract is paid off. When I paid the contract up I unlocked it and switched to Koodo. What is my tab I need to pay off?

You answered your own question below jellie-lynn, in your case there is indeed no tab to pay off!

Certainly if you qualify. Try walmart thry might still have galaxy A5 or A8s for 240 dollars on tab small.

hi jessie-lynn,
Are you having a Tab, if so what was the amount? Koodo is having promotion of iPhone 6s on Tab Meidum. you might want to upgrade your phone with Koodo (and pay off the Tab). You then go to apple store, replace the screen and sell it to someone else.

Then you could upgrade your phone on a Tab, if you would like to. The iphone 6s is $0 on Tab Medium (15/month) as of now.

It might be to just repair it. It is 169 dollars at an apple store. You could do it yourself if you have any technical inclination or quote a repair shop. An SE isn't particularly difficult to repair so it should come in for less than 169 at a repair store.

Hey thanks for replying I thought maybe it would be cheaper just to get a new phone on a contract or something

A new phone is never cheaper - you will always end up paying (near) full price. With a Tab you pay it off during the coming 2 years, so it just seems cheaper up front.

As for your question if you qualify for a Tab, most people do... but it depends on the plan you currently have, and also if you qualify. None of us can answer that for you because we have no insight in your account (we're just volunteers) and even less insight in your financial situation :D

Your cheapest option would be to ask friends and family if anyone has a spare phone they can give you since you smashed yours
