Hello there,

Yes you can always pay your phone upfront.

Hi Hassan, you can purchase the device if your a koodo customer for full price but it doesn't really make sense with the great deals you get if you get it on a tab where you can save up to $311 on the price of the device.

If you want the $311 savings you need the large tab so you pay $200 up front and $21 a month for 24 months. However if you want to pay off the phone quicker then you can pay the tab in full after 3 months and you still get that savings. You will have to choose a large tab plan however for those 3 months, but once you pay off the tab in full after the 3 months you can then switch to a lower plan.

Why does someone have to wait for 3 months to pay out the tab in full? 
I don't see any mention of this 3 month period on the website or in the Koodo's contract

It should be in the tab agreement you sign up for I believe.

The reason is ostensibly to ensure people don't take advantage of a sale and then leave Koodo.

"You'll need to be a Koodo customer for at least 90 days before you can pay off your Tab Balance."
