It depends on what tab you want to take and what plan you have and if your willing to take a new plan to get the phone cheaper at the point of purchase or if you want to pay for the phone in full. Also depends on where your located as to how much tax your charged. The tab amounts available are

small Tab = $150 off the initial price of the device you choose.

medium Tab =$300 off the initial price of the device you choose.

Large Tab =$500 off the initial price of the device you choose.

So whatever tab you choose is how much you can take off the initial price of the phone and you pay it off each month. The small tab is available with any plan, the medium Tab is available as long as you have a medium Tab plan or old plan of $30 or more. The Large tab is only available if you choose one of the large tab plans.

The tab is paid each month with koodo contributing 15% of your bill amount each month on the small, medium & Large tabs. The Medium and large tabs also have what is called a tab charge each month for the next 2 years or until the tab is paid off in full, the medium Tab is a $5 tab charge and the large tab has $10 being charged to you each month.

So take the full price of the phone you want and subtract the amount of the tab you choose to take on that device and then add taxes to that and you have your initial cost of the device at the point of purchase.

Also note that if you have a tab right now that your paying off you will need to pay that in full before being able to upgrade to a new phone. This can be paid when your buy your new phone or added to your next bill.
