I have built up about $150 on my tab, and want to use it to add a second phone/plan to my account. When I add the phone, it says that I am using $296 of my tab on a $350 phone, so my cost is $54. However, when I go to check out, it charges me $200 for the phone? Can I not use my built up tab to by a new phone for a second account?

You can't use your tab to buy a phone for another line as tabs are tied to each line not the account. The only way to do this is to get the phone on your tab then when you get it open a line using that phone and SIM Card. You'll have to call Koodo to set up the new line once you recieve the phone and SIM Card.

You can buy the phone for yourself, and then use that phone for a second account.

However you wont be allowed to do that all in one step since Tabs are not transferable so you cant technically use your tab to get a phone for another account.
