I'm looking into getting a new phone but I want to keep the pay as you go but they offer the Tab. Is it possible to have a tab and a pay as you go?

It is not no. You can apply for a tab if your over 18 or have a parent do it for you. You will need 2 pieces of Gov. ID

No, the Tab plans (postpaid) are separate from Pay-as-you-go (prepaid). You can only have one or the other.

The postpaid plans have a shock free data system to have your internet usage stopped at the account level once it hits, so it's feels like a hybrid system, so to speak. You are still subjected to a credit check and approval to get on a Tab plan, however.
