I have accumulated a positive tab balance of $150. I'm currently on the old 6gb -$60/plan with a Small Tab and looking to upgrade to the iPhone 6.

I have a couple of questions:

1) Am I able to outright purchase the iPhone 6, keep my current plan use the $150 positive balance against that purchase price ($775).

2) If not, can I upgrade to a tab medium plan, use the $150 positive tab balance without utilizing the $300 tab they are offering for tab medium plans.

3) If I have to change my plan and use the $300 tab and use the $150 positive tab balance, am I agreeing to any short or long term commitment to Koodo? ie. What is my liability if I leave Koodo after 3 months?

Thanks appreciate any insight.

First of all, never let go your plan. You won't get that great deal anymore from anywhere.

So if you have a positive tab balance of $150, you can use it towards the iPhone 6.
They have a promo (Save an extra $100 on Tab M) on the iPhone 6 now.
Your $60 plan qualify for Tab M( $30 or over)
Put $300 on the Tab M. You pay $375 -$150(your positive tab) = $225 upfront.
You just need to add $5/mo tab fee = $60 (plan)+ $5(tab) = $65/month

If you decided to leave Koodo, you just need to pay off your tab and overage charges(if any)

Your best option is to go on the Tab M! Over the 2 years, you'll pay $120 in tab charges however you save $150 on the phone PLUS the extra 'free' $100 off when you use the Tab M so you save $250 for the cost of $120 ($5 billed per month over 2 years) so you have a net savings of $130
