I was wondering if I can buy a Nexus 5 without a tab for $350 from a Koodo store without signing any contract.
Thanks!

Only if you're already a customer on postpaid

Yes you can - you can go and buy the phone without the tab, it just requires you to pay for it. Nexus 5 retail price is $350 (and you would probably be paying ttax on top of that)

Also, koodo does not have contracts. There is no cancellation fees or things like that - if you cancel you would just be responsible for the charges on your account. If you do use the tab to reduce the cost of the phone then you would also be responsible for any charges that were remaining on the tab also. (I know you said you wanted no tab but I just wanted to include this for further information)

In my experience, some stores refuse to sell a phone, and just a phone. They want to earn a commission for a contract.

Hi Daniel, they refuse to sell a phone without an activation, simply because it's against our policy :) Thank you!

Haha, that is so weird! It's not like the phone is being subsidized.

John, you will have to ask a friend who is a Koodo customer to order it for you.

Or you could just order it right from Google for that price

Hi John, Davie is right! You can buy the phone up front but you must activate an account as well. Note that a credit check is mandatory, even if you don't get the phone with a Tab. Thank you!

Thanks Yannick!

Another question:
Can I buy it for $350 and activate a prepaid account or can it only be monthly?

It will have to be a monthly, John. Alas :( For prepaid it costs $500!

Unfortunately a prepaid Nexus 5 will cost you $500. Koodo cuts the cost for post paid customers to attract them into monthly plans.

What if people buy certain phones on Prepaid and say they will activate later at home?
