I'm still trying to see how this new formats work. So if I had $100 in positive tab balance am I still able to deduct the price if I were to buy a phone outright? For example: LG G3 is $410-$100=$310 or will I have to go with the new Tab option that takes $360 off? And will you still accumulate positive tabs if you don't own anything or is that gone?

Thanks for any answers.

Yes you can use your positive tab to reduce the price of a new phone. You will have to switch to one of the new plans. I think the only way you will get to collect positive tab now is by referring people to koodo. Although their refer-a-friend site seems to go through some updates now.

If you want to use an existing, positive Tab balance to acquire a phone, you must chose one of the new plans. That's the rule as I have read it.

That's not what I read / was told.

@Chad I thought that was the whole thing, if you want to switch to the "new" tab you have to upgrade to the new plans.

If you buy outright you can keep your plan. If you use the new tab you need a new plan.

Hi Rudy, Chad is right! You can upgrade your phone with a New Tab and keep your old plan :)

You can use your accumulated balance but after it is redeemed, you will no long collect a plosives balance after the tab is paid off.

It will keep accumulating until $150,then you can use it plus the new $360 tab or portion of it if you wish.
