I currently have the Galaxy Grand Prime Plus, and its an awful phone... I've tried everything but it still sucks.

My mom is giving me her iPhone 5, can I switch to using it and cancelling the remainder of my Tab?

Hey Matt,

Is the iPhone 5 from Telus, Koodo, or unlocked? If it is, all you need is a Nano sim card. You do not need to pay off your remaining Tab unless you really want to.

Unless it is within the 15 day return period, you own that phone and the tab that goes with it.  Like Erwin said, you dont need to pay off the entire tab right away but you still need to make tab payments.  Like a car, once you bought it, you bought it.

Hey Dennis, 

I've paid off the remainder of my tab. I now have an iPhone 5s from Rogers, with a Rogers SIM card. Once that phone gets unlocked I plan to bring it over to Koodo. 

Will I require a Koodo SIM card? Or will I be able to keep the Rogers SIM card?

You will require a Koodo SIM card
