I have a Samsung Galaxy SII X and I want to switch to the iPhone 5s, but I love my plan right now because its all that I need (30$, 200MB data, 150 minutes, unlimited text). Can I get this new phone and keep my plan or do I have to upgrade to a Tab large plan with that extra 10$ charge?

Yes you can keep your current plan and switch to an iphone. WIth you plan you can upgrade with a Tab S or a Tab M.

A Tab L requires a Tab L plan, but it is not a requirement to get an iPhone 5s

Okay thank you for the fast response wow!
Will the phone cost more money when I get it? It just says with $500 off so Im guessing thats the tab large. Would the phone be like $700 if I kept the plan I have now?

Take what you have available on your tab, minus the retail price and that would be the price you will pay(also add tax onto it).

You pay off your old Tab to upgrade so you start fresh with a new one. The website only shows Tab L prices, but funnily enough they're only available in-store.

iPhone 5S would be $425 in-store on a Medium Tab. You can keep your old plan with this method, just add $5 until the Tab's paid off and enjoy a 24 month guarantee.

If you buy the phone outright you can keep plan, however if you will be using TAB then it all depends on the TAB that you choose,if you go for the medium TAB you can keep your plan $300 off or if you want the $500 off the phone then you must switch your plan to the LG tab plans:
*Tab L Data 500MB Unltd min $65
*Tab L Data 1GB Unltd min $75
*Tab L Data 3GB Unltd min $95

You'd have to pay your current tab balance if you have one. You can bill yourself out on self serve. At which point you'll be able to use koodo tab again.Plus you'd have to pay $425 out of pocket for the medium tab if you wish to keep your current price plan. Also , a $5 tab charge will be applied to your monthly bill to ensure you'll have your tab payed off in 2 years.

Also make sure to call ahead and ask about availability. I'd hate to have you drive out somewhere only to see it's not in stock. It's a high ticket item right now.

The iPhone 5S costs $725 before taxes at Koodo. So, this is what you can do (and keep your current plan (assuming you have a zero tab balance):

Option 1: Outright purchase, though you're better off buying it straight from Apple as you get an unlocked phone this way (and it's $6 cheaper), and you can get the champagne colour option if you prefer.

Option 2: Tab S - you pay $575.

Option 3: Tab M - you pay $425 plus the $5/month charge for 24 months ($120 total). This is your cheapest option at $545.

Ok guys, I'm almost done. So, just to be clear..
I have a balance of zero $ on my tab right now and I buy the phone on the tab M for $425 and it will add 5$ to my bill. So my monthly bill will be 35$ plus tax?
You all have been so helpful. Much better service than any other company I have been with *cough* Rogers *cough*

Oh I see, so my bill would be around 40$ then? I just didn't want a tab large plan or anything higher than 50 or 60$.

In Ontario, your bill after taxes should be $39.55 excluding any overage charges for the first 24 months, after which it would revert back to $33.90.

As I don't know what province you're in, I'm using Ontario's 13% HST for my calculation.
