Buying a new phone with the Tab

When Koodo has deals where we can save $100-$200 on a phone by going with the tab, I was wondering if we need to actually stay with the Tab for 24months?

For example, the LG G5 will sometimes be $200 off, and I will have to pay the remaining $504 Tab Large balance.  My question is if I can pay off the remaining balance in a couple months, and switch to a non-tab plan while still having the $200 savings and not having to pay any extra fees? 

Primary reason is that the non-tab plans usually have the necessary amount of things I need.

Yes, you can pay off the tab after 90 days and switch to another plan. Or get tab small on any plan right away, or tab medium on plans over $40.

So I would have to stay with the Tab Plan for 3 months (90 days) before I can pay off my remaining balance and go to a different non-tab plan?

Yes unless you pay for the phone up front in total
