If you purchase an iPhone at full price, then you can keep your current plan. All you would need to do is swap your SIM chip from your Android phone to your iPhone. However, if you're switching to an iPhone 5, then you will have to go and purchase a nano-SIM from Koodo and activate your account on the new SIM (unless of course you Android phone already uses a nano-SIM, but I'm not aware of any Android phone that uses nano-SIM. Most use a micro-SIM which is a different size).

Yes you can keep your plan.

Also If you buy the iPhone at full price you might as well buy it direct from Apple so it comes unlocked.

You don't have to buy the iPhone outright like how everyone said. As long as you are using the same Tab, which would probably be the Tab S; I believe you can keep your plan and the iPhone.

You could buy it outright if you wanted though.

Remember that if you have a device and no tab; you can get 10% off your plan rather than a 10% or 15% tab contribution.

If you don't upgrade your device using the tab yes you can keep your plan.

Should you decide to upgrade using tab s (150$) or m (300$) your plan would need to be at least 30$ a month before taxes and add ons to keep it. By using the new tabs you'll gain 15% tab contribution each bill and a guaranteed wipe of your tab after two years.

Tab M would also require you to pay an extra 5$ towards your tab each month. But you'll get 300$ off that new iPhone.

Upgrading using tab small makes sense too since there's no extra tab contribution on your part and you'll get 15% tab contribution from koodo as opposed to the 10% tab contribution it used to offer.

Just to reclarify, if you're making an equipment upgrade and using a tab s subsidy your plan actually does need to be at least 30$ to keep it.

The Tab S is the same as the old Tab system with the exception of the 15% contributions. There is nothing stated where the customer has to have a plan that is at least $30. That is the Tab M for that specific requirement. I looked into the tab systems last night and did not see a minimum requirement for the Tab S

Ok. I concede. You win this time Mr. L, though I do dislike being wrong.

:p If the feeling thing was working It would say I'm doing a happy dance. JK

It's all good as long as the OP gets the info and knows how awesome Koodo is!

That's correct Wincy you wouldn't have to change your plan.

Hope that helps :)
