She can buy phones outright. If she wants to take advantage of the tab or discounts via tab she will have to go throughout a credit check to switch to postpaid and get A plan at least 40 a month (35 in QC) to get a medium tab or a tab large plan for tab large. Tab small can be any plan.

This should be able to be done without problem, as no credit check is performed for prepaid. However, if she is considering avoiding her high unpaid contract plan, she should be aware of the impact that would have on her credit rating.

She can enter another "sister's" information because they don't verify anything. You don't even need a name actually, just enter one letter.

Prepaid only offers a handful of phones, Hailey. None are very high end: https://www.koodomobile.com/prepaid-phones?INTCMP=KMNew_NavMenu_Shop_PrepaidPhones

She won't be able to buy a regular Koodo phone on a prepaid account.
