I've been with Koodo for 2.5 years but not under a phone contract (I bought both of my iPhones I've had with Koodo upfront, like $800 each time, so I'm basically paying month to month but it's not a prepaid plan obviously) so would I now be eligible to switch to a contract so that I can get the iPhone 6 for cheaper? I also have $150 saved up on my tab to use towards a new phone. I'm a university student with bad credit so I don't think I was originally eligible for a contract based on my credit alone so that's why I bought the other phones full price. I could always just sell my current iPhone + use my tab credit and pay like $500 for the new one but it would be more convenient if they'd let me switch!

Yes you can use your positive tab.
Koodo doesnt really do contracts, they do Tabs.

With a Tab S they Take $150 off the phone. Any plan, new or old will qualify.

But I would recommend taking the Tab M (You will need an old plan thats $30 or more or any current plan to qualify). Note that with a Tab M there is a monthly $5 tab charge that goes against paying off your tab and after 2 years your Tab M is guaranteed to be zero.

Not only that, but you get an additional discount buying iphones from Koodo on a Tab M that ends up being cheaper than if you got the iphone from Apple.

Okay thanks I'll ask them about it in store. The plan I've had for past 2.5 years was $70 so I should be good then!

You might be better off to use the medium tab

It would basically be

$150 (your tab) + $300 (med tab used) + $100 (notice under phones for iphone 6 16GB - •Save an extra $100 on Tab M!) = $550

cost of phone $775 - you would have to pay $225

If you used the tab L you would have to change your plan to a specific plan with tab L and use $150 (your tab) + $500 (large tab used) = $650, you would have to pay $125

Look at the plans that you would have to change to using tab L versus the plans that you could have using the medium tab - then make up your mind from there :)

As Dennis said, if you look at the phones under koodomobile.com then they do give a discount for new iphone purchases. does not say that you need to get it through the web store either.
