One thing you might consider is call/visit your nearby kiosks to see what they have in the way of refurbished phones as these are not updated on the website so you might find something you like.

Other than that, what is on the Koodo site is what is available. You can put any of those phones on whatever Tab you have accumulated so far.

Also you can check for good deals on kijiji/craigslist

You probably won't get anything of real value on trade, but it's never a bad idea to take your phone in (I prefer to sell mine on Kijiji).

The BlackBerry Curve 9320 is probably your best fit for that type of usage. It'll be free on a Tab S (

Another phone to consider is my favourite budget phone from Koodo, the Nokia Lumia 520. It's also $150, so it's free on a Tab S ( I bought that one outright as a backup device/fitness tracker/media player and I do not regret that purchase at all.

It is probably one of the best $150 phones on the market, at least for Windows Phone. For Android it would be the Xperia J on Virgin.

Thinking of switching to koodo is a good call, Koodo is Canada’s most recommended national mobile phone company. Never Pay for Long Distance in Canada with Canada-wide Plans. $0 Phones with No Fixed-Term Contracts on the TAB and now with the new TAB deals and depending on credit check result you can get up to $500 off on your device of choice. To be able to send and receive emails you can choose a DATA plan an example would be the CAN Data 200MB 200min for just $40, that in my opinion is a great deal. Hope that helps!
