I want to upgrade my phone to a Nexus 5/Note 2 but I have to pay off my tab for my Nexus 4 which ends August 2015. Can I upgrade to a phone with a tab just until Aug 2015? Or do i have to pay off the whole phone's price at one time?

I know that but after I pay off the tab, I'm gonna upgrade to a Nexus 5/Note 2 so when I pay for the phone, can I use the Tab Medium for the price?

Yes as long as your plan qualifies for the Tab M.

Ex. if you have a older grandfathered plan it needs to be at least $30 to qualify

Tab M --- your balance must be $300 or less.

Galaxy Note II - advertised on Koodo site for $150 down + $150 on Tab M in store only.

As long as you owe less than $150 on your existing tab (making your existing balance + new purchase under $300) I would expect to walk out with the phone for $150 up front, provided your plan qualifies. So if you have to, pay down the existing Tab to $149. Tab attaches to your account, not a particular piece of hardware. Koodo is happy to have their SIM earning them monthlies in whatever axe you are wielding.

Sell the older Nexus privately, but unlock it first or keep it as-is for a backup.



If I am wrong, someone from Koodo accounting please provide a more lucid explanation.

$300 on No Tab
$150 on Tab S since $150 is on the Tab
$0 on Tab M since $300 is on the Tab

OP never said anything about being confused about $0 down or a free phone.

"You DO have the option of putting some money down, so that if you still owe say $100 on your old tab, you can put an extra $100 down to maintain your tab at the level you need to qualify for Tab M or S after your new purchase"
-What? To maintain your Tab at that "owing $100 level" the customer would just buy the new phone out right. But OP is not asking about that.

Please stick to what OP is asking and not add needless confusion to the topic

OP wanted to know if entire balance had to be paid off. My contention is NO from experience, with explanation. Old balance + new balance cannot exceed certain limits. Yours is let's agree to disagree and stick to the party line. OP will find out soon enough as soon as they deal with Koodo directly. Whatever you or I say will have no bearing then, and probably never has anyway.

Hi there, to get a new phone, a customer can:

keep the current Tab and pay for the new phone upfront
or
pay off the existing Tab and get the phone with a new Tab (the customer can decide how much to put on the Tab)

I hope it's more clear now :)

Thank you!

So if I were to pay off the existing tab, can I get the new phone with a tab until Aug 2015?

If you paid off your current tab, you can start a fresh tab to get a new phone right away.
Say if you buy a new phone with a new tab next month -February, then your tab will be clear in 24 month ( by February 2017)
