In response to Mellissa Mclaughlin on Facebook:

my samsung galaxy s111 somehow got water damaged. I put it in rice and it got worse instead of better the colors are all off and I can barely see half my screen. I need to come in and get a new phone but am confused about the new tabs. If i get a tab medium can I keep the 60 dollar plan I have now with the 6 gigs of data or do I have to get one of the ones on the site now? Also is there much difference between the s111 and the s4? And how about the new nexus device? Just trying to decide which one to get? thanks

As far as your plan goes as long as your current plan is over 30$, you can keep your plan.

The S4 has a bigger screen and higher resolution camera and is a quad core device (fast and smooth into the future)

At $300 the Nexus 4 is the best purchase for the price, but the new Nexus 5 is suppose to be announced by Google some time this month

The S4 is a better device overall, but it is significantly more expensive. If you have the money, go for it.

Nexus 4 is the best "bang for your buck" device on Koodo (it's probably our best seller on Koodo aside from the Ace II X) and it's $100 cheaper than replacing your S3 so that's my recommendation. It comes unlocked and you get updates right away/nearly guaranteed.

Nexus 5 is being released soon but there's no word on any carrier availability... you can't go very long without your phone. :) When Google launched the 4, it was limited to buying it from them first until Virgin got a hold of it, then it got released on most of the other carriers.
