You can but you'd be hard pressed to get good trade in value from Koodo. You're better off selling your S6 on Kijiji and then using that money towards an S7.

If you sell your phone privately you have to pay off you tab.

Hi Tiz, that's actually not the case as your tab is tied to your account and not your device. You can sell your device at anytime. You can even use multiple devices if you want. The only time you'd have to pay off your tab is if you plan to finance another phone using another tab or if u cancel ur service.

Hi Chad, thank you for your comment. I cannot get things to fit. Harshdeep has a 6 and, I assume, he is paying a tab. If he gets the 7 and sells the 6 privately, he is going to have two tabs to pay off because the 6 is not yet pad off. If he decide to trade in the 6 and get the 7 there will be for sure a difference in the value to pay. I do not know, in this second case, how Koodo would fix things. Where is my logic wrong?

It's because he's buying the 7 outright and not financing it via the tab. If he were to finance the 7 via a tab then yes he'd have to pay off his existing tab.
