Koodo should expand the phone selection and more competitive on bringing in famous flagship phones.

I feel like Koodo is not really being proactive in bringing in phones like other competitors (Virgin Mobile and Fido). We all have the same plans as them and just bringing up good customer service doesn't really cut it if someone wants a phone they are dreaming of.

I know someone may say, "just buy it unlocked" but it is really hard to find one unlocked and it cost nearly 100-200$ more online.

Without demand, Koodo wouldn't even have the S3, the nexus 4, and the iPhone 5. But to be more successful in the mobile market, Koodo has to offer more selection.

All turn around the tab and the business plan.
They made an exception for the iphone with a 36 months contract....just to be competitive...

Iphone with a tab is 520$, with 36 months contract its 180$, like other competitors.

The business plan of koodo is no contract.

With the tab system, more powerfull is the fun is, more expensivle it will be.

Agreed! I remember around 2008/2009 or so when I was looking at getting a cell phone (yes I was that late to enter the game), most recommended to stay away from Koodo because their phone selection was "horrible". Mind you that was before they moved to HSPA so after much humming and hawing I went with Rogers prepaid instead. :D

It's amazing to see how far Koodo has come in the years since then, but it won't hurt to offer even more phones. Very pleased they added another Windows phone today!

Totally agree Sofia, I was with Rogers with my very first phone that I got when I turn 18 in 2010. The only reason was because they had the phone I really liked and so I signed a 3 year contract. I ended up breaking my contract 2 years later to get the next version of that phone. I hope Koodo would offer more flagship phone, even if they use the iPhone 3 year contract plan. As long as I can buy it outright and use it with the tab plans.

I would definitely buy the One using whatever Tab I can... it would be awesome. Make it happen, Koodo!
