Yep... Only 16 Gb versions? It's very disappointing. Who can live with only 16Gb nowadays?

Jack, as good as their service is, they do have room for improvements. My suggestion will hopefully benefit Koodo.

Michael, great argument. I bet Koodo will ignore your comment and concern. Lol. They need to provide better options to attract and maintain customers.

"If you want an iPhone6/64gb that you can't afford to purchase outright, go to Bell or Rogers."

I'd take this a step further and say that if you cannot afford the phone outright, you shouldn't be getting it subsidized either. You're paying for that phone fully one way or another. These are for-profit companies.

Koodo does carry the 64gb version of the iPhone 6, I just picked one up Saturday from the Koodo Kiosk in Barrie...

They are not advertising it at this time so you must ask specifically for it....

@ Anton and morph208, The iPhones we pick are based on what Apple provides and what we feel will be the most popular among our customers. We’re always open to take on additional colours and sizes if we feel there is enough demand and supply from Apple.For now we're offering the iPhone 6 in grey. Thank you.

@Karen, who knows what the can happen, we'll have to wait and see.

Those customer representatives from koodo always just say something useless! Such as keeping telling you to check their website and say something that everyone has already known! Why would Apple just give iphone 6 plus in space grey but not the gold? The gold is very popular. So all in all it is because koodo is under Telus, Telus will be the major marketing, that's why Koodo never carry some certain popular products. And every time I called Koodo stores, their associates are not helpful since they keep telling you to check the website!

@Paul Deschamps I'd be a little more skeptical of the 6 plus, not saying that this would be everyday abuse like in this video, but the phone shouldn't bend... Check out the video (if you haven't see it already)

Ivan, Mobile Master

  • 96,634 Points 50k badge 2x thumb
I'm not believing that the 6+ has a massive problem like that. Media outlets tend to bend (see what I did there?) things for ratings/clicks. According to some, a Samsung's battery is just waiting to kill you in your sleep.

I just have a hard time believing that a company like Apple would not conduct proper stress tests. Their target market and profit margins being what they are, it would be metaphorically tantamount to shooting oneself in the foot. I wouldn't even be surprised if this was in some way orchestrated (at least in part) by Samsung since the 6+ beat the Note 4 to market.

Again, not saying that there isn't a problem with some units, but I take everything I read with a grain of salt.

@Ivan

I agree with you there, it appears it's only been a few reports of the phone having that particular issue. MKBHD on YouTube has a video that helps explain a few things further in regards to what might be causing it. I do take things like that with a grain of salt because in the video I posted earlier I realize that what is shown is not an everyday life situation for a phone to be put under.

Maybe Samsung is jealous that the iPhone beat them to market before they released the Note 4. The Note series is an excellent android phone and I think they will do just fine when it's released to the public. Mind you both the iPhone users and Android users have their opinions on which is better than the other, they're both great in their own ways, just all depends on personal preference.

I'll share the link below for people to have a better understanding of what is explained in the video by MKBHD. It makes a bit more sense than seeing someone bend a phone with their own hands.

There's no 32gb what?!?! That's just stupid of Apple to do, why the hell didn't they just start at 32gb and actually give back to their customers for a change instead of gouging them for a 64gb and putting a 16gb just to be able to have ads that say "starting at such & such a price" so it sounds cheaper. Diggin the new devices especially the plus but still hating on apples scummy way of doing business for sure.
Photo of Daniel Kim

Daniel Kim, Mobile Master

  • 34,736 Points 20k badge 2x thumb
@Paul they actually replaced 32 gb with 64gb. And added 128 gb as the largest capacity while keeping the pricing model the same (ex. starts at 749, add a hundred bucks for larger storage capacity.) Overall I'm pretty happy with that :)
Photo of Shameer Mulji

Shameer Mulji

  • 90 Points 75 badge 2x thumb
@Daniel, while that's technically true, it's still a penny-pinching move, in 2014, to have the base start @ 16GB, especially now that iOS 8 alone, requires just under 5GB of space.

Start the base @ 32GB and those who actually want or need more storage will buy it. Flash storage is cheap, especially at the massive volumes that Apple purchases them.

Having said that mini rant, I am digging my iPhone 6.

Daniel Kim, Mobile Master

  • 34,736 Points 20k badge 2x thumb
Yeah totally agree with what you said Shameer. A 32gb base would be preferrable. Anything in particular you enjoy about your shiny new iphone 6 Shameer? :)

  • 90 Points 75 badge 2x thumb
I really like the increased screen real estate and that I can still operate it with one hand, the increased performance, and the new design feels much more comfortable to hold.

The only down side with buying the iPhone 6 right away is that not all the apps that people use are optimized yet for the bigger screen and new resolutions. Apps that are not optimized will still work but will be scaled up and look a bit blurry. But that's a matter of patience and "hounding" the developers of the apps that you use.

Why don't you handle koodo upgrades or activations at Apple stores? At least we would be able to choose the color, size, model we want. All other sub brands are there (FIDO for Rogers and VIRGINIA for Bell). Strange test Telus chose not carry Koodo. M

hi i am actually in a contract , i have got nexus 4 , i need to pay 100 dollars, nearly six months remaining fr my contract to end , is there any possibility i could by iphone 6? how much more it would cost for me ? is there any exhange ?

Are you currently with Koodo? If so, you can log into your self serve and you can choose to add your tab to the next invoice so that you don't have to pay anything extra upfront when you upgrade to the new iPhone. When you're on the tab you can upgrade at any time, you just have to settle your tab and start again with a new one.

Hope that helps answer your question :)
I have Samsung 4 with Koodo. I went to Oakridge Mall yesterday and inquire from Koodo Customer if J can upgrade my phone by paying my balance, get a new Samsung 6 and start again paying the tab but I was told I have to pay my remaining $200+ and the $400 right away....is that correct?

Daniel Gunn

  • 19,800 Points 10k badge 2x thumb
Hi Lyn,

If you choose to purchase the phone in store you would need to pay the balance of your tab plus the upfront cost of the phone. You also have the option of putting your tab balance on your next invoice so that you're not stuck paying $600+ at the store. The best way to do this is by logging into your self serve account.

Hope that helps :)

Assuming your plan is $30 or higher or it's a currently plan, you can choose the iphone on Tab M.

With Tab M there is a $300 subsidy for your phone and for right now you get an additional discount off what you have to pay.

Note that when you have a Tab M, there is an additional $5 monthyl tab charge that helps pay off your tab. In 2 years, regardless of what's left on your tab, Koodo will zero it.

Hey Bhavin, we don't have a solid timeline at this time. The iPhone 6 was a popular item and they flew off the shelves pretty fast. My best advice is to call nearby stores to see they have some in stock: http://koo.do/locator123.

Koodo needs to straighten out their retail stores. Their reps only care about their commission and therefore will not ship iPhones from one location to another. I have complained to Koodo about this issue and they informed me that they have no control of their retail division. Come on Koodo, get your priorities straight. Your customers are your number one priority...not your employees.

why Koodo is expensive than other Phone Carriers ...
I searched online and I found that most of the companies are giving iPhone 6 around $250 and iPhone 6 Plus around $400... but Koodo is expensive than others....
Photo of Dennis

Dennis, Mobile Master

  • 196,120 Points 100k badge 2x thumb
I have searched other carriers myself. It's smart to shop around. I highly recommend it. But did you notice that to buy those iphones at those prices you have to sign up for Virgin and Fido's Platinum and Max plans that start at a minimum of $80 per month?
With Koodo you can get the iphone on any plan on Tab M. And if you check out this link the phone price is actually lower than the Apple store when you get it on Tab M.

I think the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus should have the option of 64G for purchase.  I realize that most people don't want to spend this much money on their phones from Koodo or from Apple because it would cost around $1000... But what If we could use the tab towards it over 2 years.  This would dramaticly decrease the price of the phone and Koodo would be paying off the tab that they always do you used on it with your existing bill payments. This would keep customers happy by offering a larger phone with a discount. 
Koodo could even control costs by having customers prepay for the phone in store and have it ordered upon demand.  For example, Koodo doesn't want to pay to have the iPhone 6 Plus 64G in the store because they are too expansive and if they don't sell they just sit on the shelf and decrease in value.  To fix this problem, let the customer come in and place an individual order for the phone iPhone 6 Plus 64 and have it ordered to come into the store for pick up when its ready.  

The new iPhones have new apps that require more storage anyway.  16G just doesn't cut it anymore.  I think people would be happy to get the med or large tab discount off of these phones.  

Common Koodo! :D

I am disappointed that the iPhone 6 will only be available in the 16Gb configuration - my current iPhone is already maxed out for space and its the same size. While I like Koodo's pricing, I probably will move to another carrier.

Ivan, Mobile Master

  • 96,634 Points 50k badge 2x thumb
You should compare the total cost of phone and service over the 2 year agreement with another carrier versus buying the desired variant straight from Apple and having the 10% monthly discount with Koodo.

Then, do what makes the most financial sense to you.

Anyone know where this limited stock on the iPhones are? I called three stores asking about the 6+ and was finally told there were none in the city and it would probably be two or three months before stock arrived ... :(

One suggested the stock was only online, but it says Only available in store.

As far as i know, most Koodo store locations have sold out. if you have to wait a couple months then you should wait for their 6s/c. Hopefully by then, all the kinks and the bending of the plus phones will be fixed.

That's a good question. Ashley Levy, Koodo's Community Manager, said, "If you're interested in color or memory choices that we don't currently offer, I recommend bringing an unlocked one to Koodo. It's super easy, learn more by clicking here: http://koo.do/JKw568." It suggests that they will not be carrying the gold colour anytime soon. Also, I havent seen Ashley responding to the questions or concerns within this topic lately. Let's go Koodo's Community employees! Start answering your customer's inquiries...

Hey Chris, they have 64gb now. Better be quick before they're sold out! Also in order to use your tab you'll need to pay off your current remaining tab if you have any. :)
