just brought an LG G5 on tab for the great price of $260 or $11.00 per month until tab paid off. Can I pay my tab off now and buy another LG G5 phone for the same great price of $260 on tab at $11.00 per month ? Will I get the same discount ( $444)?

Thanks

I believe that you need to be with Koodo for at least 90 days to pay it off, but otherwise should be able to. Far as I know the G5 is still on sale for 360, instead of 260. So I'm guessing you had a positive tab balance or a special offer or something? You will likely get it for 360 instead of 260 if you choose to do so.

Yes I was never on tab before. in self serve at top of page it showed $344 off with another $100 discount bringing the discount to $444 and the price of  the phone down to $260 which is great.

Why do I need to wait 90days for ? I am not a new customer been with them awhile now. Does that mean also 90 days to have phone unlocked by third party too?

Thanks

Sorry I wasn't clear. You need to have been a customer for 90 days. Once past that poi t you should be fine. You do not have to wait at all to get it unlocked with a third party and can anytime you wish. I personally suggest eBay as they have a wide range of sellers and feedback.

I also got the phone for $210. But after you redeem the offer you cannot get it for the same price, it goes back to regular price. Happy with the deal.

"Why do I need to wait 90days for ?"
  -IIRC that if you buy a phone on Tab, then you have to wait for 90 days to pay off your Tab  especially with activation credit.  It's to prevent fraud.

If Koodo allowed to people buy a phone with activation credit today and pay off next day. Then buy a same phone again and again...  90 days restriction prevent abusing the system.
