I'm going off to university in the next couple of weeks and I'm planning on switching from Wind to Koodo. The website is undergoing updates right now so I couldn't really check but would I be able to get an iPhone (5s or 4s, preferably 5s but I'm not picky) on tab with a lightweight plan and what is the average price for a lightweight plan? Thank you!!

Not sure what you mean by a lightweight plan, but yes - you can get an iPhone with any plan. The difference is the size of the tab and the rate of payback (this assumes you pass the credit check for a tab). All plans can get the $150 tab. Plans $30 or more (and sometimes the $29 promo plan) can get $300 tab with an additional $5 per month tab payment. There is also a tab large, but don't get it. The tab medium is generally the best value if the phone is $300 or more, which is the case for all iPhones.

Keep in mind that after 24 months Koodo resets your tab to $0 even if it hasn't all been paid back. That's one thing that improves the tab medium's value.

Edit: so the website is back up and I see that plans with data up to 1Gb are now called lightweight plans. So still yes, you can get an iPhone on tab with a lightweight plan.
