What about tab credit is this still being credited, if I got a new phone and have a old planews what happens, I have to pay 56 plus 15 so 71 dollars. Seems like koodo is not koodo any more (telus)

Hi John,

If you choose to upgrade to a new phone using the new tab, you can still put up to 360$ of the cost of a new phone towards the tab. You can put anywhere between 0 and 360 on the tab, and that amount will be divided by 24 (months) to result the monthly amount you must pay extra to be able to pay off the tab after 24 months.

If you keep your current plan, your credit will keep accumulating to the maximum of +150$ that can then be used towards the upgrade of a phone as well.

The main difference is that Koodo is no longer contributing towards the tab, meaning they are not putting their 15% of your bill every month to pay off your tab for you. A part from that, there isn't really many new changes.

Hope this helps!

And no more 10% discount once your tab is paid.

If you upgrade to a new plan, you will need to pay off your existing tab without the new tab repayment structure.

If you upgrade a phone, put 360$ towards a new tab, you will get a 15$ charge every month until it's paid on top of your plan.

New. Definitely new! So much easier to understand as opposed to the previous mumbo jumbo of S, M and L -:)

(Just to clarify what Mathieu posted) Here's what the Koodo FAQ says:

"With Koodo, now it’s even easier to get the phone you want when you want it....

What happens if you want a new phone but still have a Tab balance? Let’s say you only have four months left to pay off your Tab balance and want to upgrade your phone. In that case, all you have to do is pay off the remaining Tab balance and start a new Tab with your phone. [My Note: payment of all new tabs is an additional charge on your monthly bill]

>>>>>Nothing changes for you if you signed up prior to April 19, 2015. You can continue to keep your current Tab and plan until you’re ready to upgrade your phone. When upgrading, you can choose to switch to one of our new plans or keep your existing plan if you prefer..... <<<<<< [My note: It may well be worthwhile to defer purchase of a new phone and to continue with your current plan until your tab is paid off automatically by Koodo through your existing monthly plan. In your case, this would save you $56.]

I believe that Bell, Rogers and Telus will soon offer competitive promos to retain customers with expiring 2 year and 3 year contracts. Koodo will have to respond with more promos (not just the sole promo $45 plan that expires May 3). So, if you still owe on an existing tab, it is more advantageous to have Koodo pay down your tab each month than for you to pay it off in a lump sum in order to buy a new phone.
