Hello! I've been using Koodo for almost 5 years now (giving me a positive tab balance). The phone I'm using right now is Iphone 4s which I bought 4 years ago. I wanted to upgrade  to either 6 or 6s, wanted to retain my number and my plan. What are my options?

Well first off you can keep your number thats not a problem. You csn keep your plan if you either pay full price for the phone upfront or you can put the phone on a regular tab and pay less up front and pay the rest off monthly through the monthly tab charge that will be added to your bill which is upwards of $15 / month for 24 months or less the more you pay upfront .

You can use your positive tab to help offset some of the cost of upgrading as well.

Just a heads up that tabs have changed since April 19 2015, Koodo no longer contributes to the tab balance. Instead you pay the whole tab back over the next two years. After that the tab charge drops off your bill. No more accumulated positive tab.

So for example we'll assume you have a positive tab of 150$

IPhone 6 16gb today's retail 774$
- your positive tab balance of 150$
Total outright costs 624$ and you keep your plan

Financed on regular tab (360$) so you can keep your plan
Monthly cost is 15$x 24 months
Total due at inception : 624$-360$=264$
Plus taxes of course

And then there's Tab plus
624$-500$=124$ down and 21$ per month over 24 months plus you'd have to change your plan to a tab plus plan.
