Just wondering

Hey everyone. My boyfriend and I are both customers with Koodo and have been for years (desperate billing though). Since his birthday is approaching (dirty 30!) I was going to buy him an iPhone 5s since he currently has a crappy iphone4. I'm wondering if I am able to do this as a surprise without him knowing. I don't want to change his current plan or anything and wanted to get it put on his tab. Please let me know if this is possible! Thanks :)

Unless he has added you as an authorized admin to his account, this won't work, at all.

An option would be to upgrade to the 5S yourself, on your account, and hand the phone over to him. He will then re-use his own SIM card in the new phone and call it a day. However, it's YOUR tab which will be in the negative and it will be under YOUR responsibility.

Another (more sensible) option would be to buy one outright, straight from Apple or another vendor. Higher upfront cost, lower cost of ownership on the long term.

Thank you for the speedy reply! I might just have to tell him about it so he can actually get it all done and I'll just pay for it. I'll just make the case the surprise :) thanks for your help! You guys rock!
