I have broken my phone, and would like to replace the phone through koodo without changing to the new Tab. What are my options for this? Can I do it like I did before, with the old tab, or do I have to buy a new phone outright?

Hey Camilla,

You cant choose what type of tab you want. You'll either have to pay off your exisiting tab and purchase a new phone using the new tab where your subsidy is split into equal tab payments. Or pay for a phone outright.

Thanks for the reply. Do you know where I can find information on what phones are available to purchase outright from Koodo? 

My current plan is pretty sweet, so I don't want to change it if I don't have to. If I continue with my current plan/old tab, can I continue to accumulate a positive tab balance?

Yes, but only up to a maximum of $150.

Even if you switch to the new Tab system you don't have to change your plan but I know how you'll feel paying basically up to an extra $15/month. Thing is if you do the math, you might end up paying the same amount of money because you're pretty much financing the phone now.

The phones to buy are available on the website.

Earlier this week I still had $36.00 owing on small tab, for motto g1. Went to Koodo Kiosk and purchased a motto g3.
They swaped out my sim card and 5minutes later, new phone was up and running and I now continue paying off the small balance, of small tab, with the new phone.
