A year and a half ago did you purchase the iphone on a 3 year term with koodo?
The current contracts states you have to repay the remaining portion of your discount in order to leave the contract.

You can purchase a new phone outright and continue using it on the 3 year plan. Koodo does not really care which phone you use as long as you keep the contract plan for 3 years.
NOTE: If you get a pre-bb10 blackberry, the data will not work under the iphone plan.

Hi there Kimley... If you want to change your phone you will have to pay whatever is left to be paid on the handset, when you got the contract your phone was discounted and there was an amount that was subsidized, so the price you will need to pay depends on the months left that you have on the contract...

I saw that you mentioned that you are paying 100$, probably you can check the new iPhone plans, most likely you will get more stuff for less...

You don't have to pay off the phone. As Timo said koodo doesn"t care what phone you use as long as you pay for it full.

I've seen some Rogers or Bell corporate plans allow this but those are obviously special cases. None of my Telus clients on consumer accounts have ever gotten that kind of deal.

No free upgrade with anyone. What they do is that they give you the phone but they extend your contract for another 3 years. That's not a good deal if you ask me.

Telus does offer those free upgrades to consumers... if their individual bill is something like over $200 a month. Most people have to wait until the last 3/4 months of their term for a free upgrade.

No, with koodo you only get one discount per contract. No additional discounts or subsidies until you've paid out your contract.
