I came to koodo with my own phone during the 10gb promotion in December. The Google Pixel 2 is currently advertised at 0$ with tab large but if I log in, it's $200 with tab large. Why the discrepancy?

Hi Amy,
I don't think you can add a Tab on that $60 10GB promotion. It was a BYOD plan.

Regarding the ad, I think you might click on the wrong phone. The "Pixel 2" is $0 on Tab Lage, the "Pixel 2 XL" is $200

Are you looking at the 2 or the 2 XL? There is a $200 difference between the two.

Oh, I may have clicked the wrong phone; thank you for pointing that out. Man, is my only option to go for 7gbs for over $100 a month, PLUS tab large? Horrifying. May have to get a Quebec number! ;)

There is a promo plan in store $60 6gb medium tab. If you don’t really need 10gb, it might be a better choice. You might have to pay more upfront as it is a medium tab.

I have the same plan as you which is only a BYOD plan. When I am logged in to self serve I have no options to buy anything on tab large. Its only medium or small. Tab Large is not a good deal. Medium is better and when you pick a new plan you might find something that isnt as horrifying.

Yes because you are on a BYOD plan so you would have to pick a new plan. 

Not that I ever would want tab large but its strange that it doesnt give me the option of tab large on any phones.

Dont blame you. Tough to give up that plan.

You guys were right that I was looking at the XL and causing the jump to $200! And thank you for pointing out the better value of the medium tab.
I still think I'll switch to a Quebec number, though, as the difference in the monthly cost is rather bonkers.

But why go through all that trouble to get the $60/10GB plan?

If you dont want this plan anymore and are willing to get a QC number, I recommend selling this plan to another person

I didn't go to any "trouble". I walked up to a mall kiosk on December 18th, ported my number and walked away within 10 minutes.

Still, I'm now of the mind that I should keep the plan and buy a phone outright after crunching the numbers. I do think I could get by with 7gbs for $54 a month (the current best QC offer) + medium tab; it's pretty enticing.

I hadn't thought of selling the plan and wouldn't know how to do that anyhow.

As tech improves, smart phones will slowly use more and more data.  And who knows when a plan as good as the 10gb one will come along again.

I recommend keeping the plan.  If you do decide to change, just post back on the community and we can help you with any Transfer of Ownership of your line if you are interested.  Now if you receive money for the transfer, that is up to you.  People do sell these accounts since the deal was out of this world
