Koodo should more custom plans. Start with a base plan for $20 for say 50 minutes. Let us add on what we need like minutes, data, voicemail, call display, text messages. The problem with prepaid is that we cannot use then in the US.

$29 a month get you 200 minutes, unlimited evening and weekend and unlimited messaging already on their lowest monthly plan. Plus it works in the states. I'm not sure it can get any better with custom plans.

I like the Idea of only getting what (and paying for) what I need. The $29 plan has allot more minutes than I'd need. I think it would be cool If I could reallocate the money spent on minutes to a bit of data maybe, or paying off my Tab faster.

It doesn't make sense to pay off your tab sooner. It's an interest free loan from koodo.

Very true, It actually makes more sense to prolong paying it off because of inflation :P I wouldn't mind keeping 2% a year in my pocket! I suppose I was just thinking in terms of securing financing to upgrade devices, in which case redeeming those funds would yield a positive return because of inflation, but again, very minimal.

You people need to start looking at prepaid.

$15 gets you unlimited SMS/MMS.

You're then free to add the boosters you want.

Don't need voice? You don't buy it.

Data? Same thing.

When you finally do buy a booster, you get to use all of it, until it's depleted. Then the cycle repeats if you want it to.

Really, it's the closest thing to a custom plan.

And no, I won't take Tab as an excuse to not go prepaid.

You're welcome :)

For a lot of people the Tab (or any subsidy method on any carrier) is a huge reason for unwilling to go prepaid because they can't afford the interruption of cash flow for a good or event decent phone + there might be a gift card offer to help offset the cost.

Also the OP mentioned being unable to use roaming in the U.S, which some people also really want to use the same # despite it probably being cheaper to unlock their phone and then use T-Mobile or Roam Mobility down there.

Postpaid vs prepaid isn't about which one is technically cheaper or better value, it's about which fits the persons's needs better.
