Buying a Phone Through Web-Store - Require Plan Change?

I'm thinking about ordering a 64GB iPhone SE from the Koodo website, but it doesn't seem to tell me what I'd have to do once I received the phone. If I had to change my plan as a result of getting the new phone would I be told when I place the order or when I try to set the phone up?

I purchased my last phone and paid in full so I'm wondering if my plan would still work if I get the tab.

You would be required t change your plan before being able to complete the order if you had to. You can just use op in your current SIM card once you get your phone and that's it. Your plan should be just fine especially if you get it on tab medium or small.

Your plan will only have to be changed if you are getting a different tab size then before.
Tab Small: Starting at $28/month
Tab Medium: Starting at $40/month
Tab Large: Starting at $59/month
So if you had the $28/month plan, you wouldnt be able to get a phone on tab medium or large.
You can view all the plans available on each tab here: https://www.koodomobile.com/rate-plans

I had heard that you could keep your plan as long a you didn't get a tab large. Tab small or medium would allow you too keep your current plan??

I didn't have a tab before which is where my confusion lies. I think I'll be ok since I'm currently using a $40 plan and going to a Medium tab. I'll let you know how it works out when I pull the trigger.

Tab medium plans start at $40 so to my knowledge of what the koodo site offers you wouldnt be able to have the $28 or $30 plans on a tab medium.

And the $40 plan on tab medium should be just fine so all you will have to do is order the phone and then pop your old sim card into once it arrives!

@StevenR: Your current plan should fulfill the tab requirements for a tab medium assuming your plan is not a strict BYOD promo plan.

@ns: As per Allan's explanation, tab medium also has base plan requirements.
