i have a tab balance of around $80 left, my phone unfortunately broke though and so im going to walmart today to get a new one.
im thinking about getting an iphone but the question is, can i use my tab money i have already paid off (about $60ish), towards the iphone?
AND would i be able to get the phone on tab small so then about $200 goes onto my tab balance INCLUDING the $80 that were already on it?
OR
would i have to pay off the $80 first and then get a new tab with the phone :/?
please help this is really important D:

You have to pay off your current tab first. :)

Because of the new CRTC ruling, you will have to pay off your remaining tab balance first. This can be done at the store when you purchase your new phone. You would have the entire amount of your tab to use towards the new phone.

okay so if my tab balance is around $60 and i pay off the $80, I can use the total ($140) towards the new phone?

You would have $150 to use towards a new phone.

You may want to look at going for a Tab M, which will give you $300 worth of Tab space.

Note that you will require a plan of at least $30 and there will be a $5 monthly tab charge as well to help pay down the tab
