Buying new phone online without adding a new plan - Existing account

I have an existing account with Koodo and currently have the Samsung A5 on a medium tab.  I'd like to also add the Essential phone on a medium tab.  Can I have 2 phones on a tab at the same time (therefore adding $30 to my monthly bill instead of $15)?  If so, how do I buy it online?  When I add it to my cart, it forces me to add a plan to my cart too, but I don't want a new plan, I want the phone on my existing plan.

No you can only have one tab per line. You will have to pay of the current tab, which will go on your next bill, and then you can use the tab again to grab an essential phone. I'd say it's still worth it given its on sale again for 360 on medium tab. Hard to beat with those specs and Android 8.1.

Just get a good case as there are no parts for third party repairs and it's painfully difficult to crack open even if there was. It would probably cost as much as the phone did or close to it to get a cracked screen repaired.
