You cannot get a tab plus plan without using Tab Plus.

Why would you want to?

Why would you want a Tab Plus plan without getting a phone? Tab Plus plans don't offer great value. For example, a 2 GB regular plan is $65, whereas the same Tab Plus plan is $69.

Hi John,

Are you sure you want a Tab Plus Plan?  Compare them to the Canada wide plans and you may see that you can get similar data and minutes for lower costs

This is why: New Quebec limited time offer:
With Tab Plus: $59 for 6 GIGS Unlimited Canada Wide Calling
compared to $60 for 5 GIGS (byod, also new QC exclusive plan)

But since you have to purchase a device...it isn't really $59 for 6 gigs :)  Thanks all!

I don't believe there is any technical reason why you couldn't take the new $59 plan John even if you bring your phone. As long as you are a Quebec resident. Have you tried to switch to it in self serve? I will double check this and get back to you guys.

UPDATE: I was wrong. That plan is indeed only available with taking Tab Plus ($21 monthly financing for a new phone).

I do wish BYOD and tabless customers could choose ANY plan

It makes no sense that the Tab Plus plan would be a better deal.  At best it should be no better than the regular plans

Just for S&G I called and asked a rep to change it for me and after one session of smooth jazz, the Rep cane back and said he had spoken to support and it wasn't possible. Boo
