Hi all: I am wanting to buy a Galaxy Note II as a gift for a friend. She is a current koodo subscriber. The promotion in store is 400.00. My question: if I buy the phone out right do I need to have a plan with it? It's a gift. A koodo spoke person said I can't get the 400 dollar deal without having a plan. I fail to see where on the website such a clause exists?

It's because these prices are for existing or new customers but NO carrier will sell to you at the subscription price without activating service on it.

There may be a higher prepaid price you can pay but I'm not sure what that would be

If you really want to get it as a gift I suggest you take her to the kiosk and buy it for her so she can associate it with her account right away

Koodo is a wireless service provider. They cannot sell a phone on promo pricing without a plan.
If you want, you can sign up and cancel after a month.

Another option is to buy the phone as prepaid for $550.

Or buy it unlocked one online via ebay or maybe a samsung store if you have one in your area
