The Nexus 5 is unlocked already.

You will still pay the $35/month until you cancel in which you will also pay the Tab.

No the tab is the price of the phone. It is roughly $350 that's the reason the phone is $0 because the full retail gets put on the Tab.

To activate a phone like that and cancel you'll pay $35+Tab. Which will end up being almost $400

You'll be lucky to get $350 for that phone on resale.

You will either pay $35/month for 24 months until the Tab is paid off or cancel and pay the Tab off. Which will be about $350-$400 after taxes.

There is no profit to be made doing what your trying to do.

You can call Koodo as well to find out how much the cancellation charges will be. To give you a better idea of how much it's going to cost you.
