A good idea is that koodo should implant the tab in prepaid and postpaid plans. Many people leave Koodo to go to Fido because they have fido dollars for prepaid and postpaid. Which gets you a new phone faster. Koodo already has good service all they need is the tab for all customers. Even if people decided to leave koodo still they would just have too pay off there tab which makes it a win win for koodo and us as customers

It's not a bad idea.

However, there is one cool thing about Koodo's prepaid that no one else does: rollover boosters. 1GB of data for $35 sounds expensive compared to postpaid but if you only use like 100 - 200 MB a month, it lasts you several months so it's a good investment. Same goes for the Canada-wide talk minute add ons.

I think the main reason why the Tab isn't offered to prepaid customers is that it's a liability based on credit. Despite Fidodollars being given to a prepaid client, it's basically a rewards program for continuous use of their service. They still have to pay full price for their initial device or bring their own.

An argument could be made that even on Koodo's prepaid they would have to do the same but I guess it's just not in their best interests. It might get confusing.

I agree with that but they could do something like fido dollars (koodo dollars) or if the customer decides to leave they could pay off the tab or it could be like you start off with 0 dollars and accumulate more some of the tab

What about something similar to fido dollars. Koodollars credits. 10% credit for each top up that can be used later to purchase boosters but not base plans.
