I already maxed out my positive tab at +$150 but I don't really want the current phones (32 GB iPhone 5S, OK but they only have 16 GB ones and I brought an unlocked 32 GB iPhone 4S to Koodo). So I want to keep accumulating my tab, so long as it's positive.

I'd like Koodo to raise the ceilings on positive tabs so I don't have to purchase a phone I don't want just to use up my tab as I have it capped. I don't want to get a crap phone to give away/sell on Craigslist that may just be unnecessary waste into a landfill.

To get an iPhone 5C/S you have a tab of 500 anyways... why can't my positive tab go up that high? I understand the need to limit the negative tab to -$150 still.

No one says you HAVE TO have a certain tab to get a phone. You can use the 300 tab or even the 150 tab if you want to and just pay the difference for the iPhone. Nothing is free and some charges may occur.

The negative tab has three limits
-150
-300
and
-500

If you have a maxed out tab and choose the -500 option, you would get 750 off the cost of a phone. Only downside of the 500 tab, you have to choose one of the three plans on the 500 tab.

As the positive tab is a relic from the old tab system, I'd modify it based on Tab M, raising the positive tab maximum to $300.

@Tyler C: I'm speaking specifically about raising caps of positive tabs. I'd like to be able to go say +$300 to +$500 on my positive tab.

Right now, since I am at the cap of my tab, no % of my plan is going to my tab since I'm capped at +$150. I don't want to change from my old plan because it's right now priced at the $60 - yet I'm getting it for $56 + 10% to my tab (which is currently capped at +$150).

I just want to see the positive tab cap increased higher until there is a phone I do actually want to get.

If you upgrade your phone, you will get the15% tab and you can keep your $56plan. ( but you don't have to do it)
Since your tab is maxed out now, you can switch to 10% discount on your plan. Your monthly plan will be $50.40 ($56 - $5.6 =$50.4)
You get discount instead of receiving the tab contribution.
Add : I like your idea of raise the ceilings on positive tab :)

Am I missing something here, or is the 15% back only for negative AND newish Tabs? I'm almost certain that as soon as you go into positive, you're back on 10% towards the Tab OR 10% off your plan price. Anyone?

Maybe if the tab kept increasing past +150 with that added $5.00/$10.00 on your bill but not the 15% koodo contributes.
That way youre not just getting free money towards a new phone.

I sell Koodo, and on many many occasions We have had customers with a positive balance of $150, who will go out and get the Moto G for free and still owe nothing for the phone. Koodo is doing a huge favour in giving people free phones without going on tab. They wont ever increase the positive tab because giving away higher value devices will not benefit the company at all.

The Iphone 5c is currently valued at $250 on a medium tab, you can now remove $150 off that and only pay $100 for a fancy new Iphone. That to me is a great deal.
