There are different sized tabs that require different plans, for example a medium Tab would require you to go on to a medium Tab plan. If you choose a large tab (which takes a larger amount of the price of a phone and puts it on a tab) then you would need a tab large plan.

The tab is basically an interest free loan that you pay off EACH MONTH for 24 consecutive months, at which time you will have paid off your tab which basically means you have paid off the phone you purchased in full at this time.
You can however choose to pay off your tab early by paying the full amount owing at the time in order to upgrade to a new phone and begin the tab payment process over again.

Hope this helped you understand the tab, if you have any further questions feel free to ask, we are always here to help.
I currently have no tab and no contract, month-to-month plan. If I decide to get a tab, would my plan change and will I be put in contract?

If you get a tab eligible with your plan. (Ex: $30/month plan and you get tab small. $40/month plan and you get tab medium) then you wont need to change your plan but if you try to get a tab that isnt eligible with your plan you will have to change.
Koodo doesnt do contracts per say though. You can leave Koodo whenever you want, youll just have to pay off the tab.

The tab is a contract, one that says you agree to pay off the subsidy on your phone in 24 installments over the next two years. These payments will be in addition to the cost of your monthly plan. Whether your plan has to change depends on what plan you currently have and whether you want to use tab small, medium or large.
Tab is clearer than mud now. Thanks!

How to find out if my plan is eligible for a tab?

If you put, say, $240 on the tab, then you would pay $240/24, or $10, each month.
