I really need some help, I want to get the iphone 5c, with the 500$ tab you only pay 75$, i'm currently on the tab right now with koodo, i still owe close to 100$ on my current phone, however, the phone will be given to my parents and i will be adding another line to my account, can i still own both phones? without having to pay off my prevous tab?

You will have to get the second line if eligible (not on a spending limit) and then use the tab on that second line. The second line will have to have a tab large plan to be eligible for the large tab. There will also be a $10 per month tab charge added on top of the tab large plan.
If you do all that then there's no need to pay off your tab on the first line.

I highly recommend going on Medium Tab instead. You'll end up saving money and/or getting better value in your plan over 24 months in almost every circumstance versus getting a cheaper price in store.

We did the math some months ago Sarah, listen to Jonathan's advice. You'll save a pretty good chunk of money over the next 24 months even if you have to shell out more up front!

I'm looking at the identical situation except for my wife instead of parents. Would you still be able to keep the same phone number? Would the current plan still be in effect for the phone or would I lose it?

If you go on Tab M, you will need a rate plan of $30. If you go on Tab L, you need a Tab L plan.

Everything else would remain the same.
