I have an LG G3 and want to upgrade to a G4 (Yes I know there is a 6 out, I dont care)
I have a balence of -200.00 still on my tab. If I want to upgrade, can I just pay off the rest of my tab balance and get the G4 at $0.00 with a new tab?

You are correct! When you choose to pay off your tab it will go onto your next bill.
The LG G4 is on for $0 with Tab Small.

I had the G4 a couple of years ago. It was a great phone. They do have a known bootloop issue (as with pretty much every other LG phone), so there's a small chance of will die a random death at some point.

Just wanted to let you know that the G5 is a much superior phone to the G4, and it's frequently on sale. Right now, it's close in price to the G4.

Thanks, I just checked on the website. Yesterday the G5 was 100.00+  and a tab, and the G4 was 0.00 and tab. Now the G5 is also available for 0.00 plus a tab. Must have changed overnight! lol

G5:
Tab Medium, $0 + ($360 over 2 years)
Tab Small, $120 + ($240 over 2 years)
G4:
Tab Small, $0 + ($240 over 2 years)

The G5 is still $360 in the end, but you can get it with larger or smaller monthly payments.
I would still opt for this over the G4 though.

OP if you're looking for the LG G4, nothing wrong with that. You may want to play a bit of a waiting game if you're not in a hurry (never shop for phones when you're in a hurry). Wait until it goes End Of Life with Koodo. They'll still have it in stock at TMS/OSL/BestBuy, but it'll likely be $0 upfront on a tab small (as it currently is at the time of writing). They won't sell out as fast as Koodo stores will. Once Koodo stores are out, the other retailers won't re-stock, but they'll have smashing promos to liquidate their LG G4's.

Granted, we don't know when this will be, but now we're up to three generations of the LG G series (which carriers try to avoid). Expect in June for crazy promos on the LG G4 on Koodo. Could happen sooner.

At TMS they sometimes even offer PC points on upgrades. Have someone from TMS call or text you whenever their promo's peak on that device.

Also, would be cool if forum user Jru Gordon could comment on this thread, he's an avid fan of TMS & OSL plus he likes LG G series phones.

The Mobile Shop. Just another retailer who sells Koodo phones.

@Allan: you beat me to it. Yes, TMS is The Mobile Shop, and *usually* (not always) have better promos than the Koodo kiosks. They're great if you do your groceries at Loblaw/President's Choice chain grocery stores and have locations across all the provinces except Québec! They also price-match other cellphone retailers. Sadly, their trade-in's are on all carriers except for Koodo and Virgin.
