Changing phone without changing plan.

Can I change my phone without changing my plan ? The phone I want is an old one from Telus and no longer has a contract. I realise I would have to continue paying for the Samsung phone until the tab is cleared. The reason I want the old one is because it has a keyboard.

If it's a CDMA phone, you won't be able to use it on Koodo. If it's a Sim card phone, you would need to get it unlocked from Telus before using it on Koodo.

You do not pay for the phone while you are a customer with Koodo. Koodo takes care of the tab for you.

You can switch phones without switching the rate plans.

Wrong, you don't need to unlock it to use it on Koodo if it comes from Telus.

Unless it's an iPhone 4 or higher. Those don't need to be unlocked if it's from Telus

When I first joined Koodo in 2011, I brought in my HTC Desire from Telus, and I had to unlock it first (thanx XDA for the free unlock!).

My father has a locked iPhone 4 from Telus working on Koodo, but thanks Dennis for the info !
