Upgrading phone without chaging plans

Hi,
I want to upgrade my phone and my Koodo tab is currently at 74$ remaining (out of 150). The Nexus 5 at Best Buy comes with a 300$ tab and I was wondering if, after paying off my current tab and my balance reaches 0, I could pay another 50$ so that the Nexus' tab would only be at 150. Like that, I wouldn't need to change my (20$) plan (keeping the small tab instead of the medium one).
If that is not possible is there any other way that I could get the phone without changing my plan?
Thank you

Hi there,

When it comes to paying off your tab you can put that on your next bill or pay it off in store as you said. If you use a tab small on the Nexus 5 the phone will be $200 so if you had the extra $50 then that is the only way to make it $150. The tab medium allows you to get it for $0 only issue is you would be required to change your plan to a minimum plan of $30 (the $29 plan will work in this regard) plus a $5 tab charge.

Hope that helps :)

What that is referring to if you chose to go with a medium tab it will be $0 with it. If you choose a tab small it's $200. So yes you'd have to pay $200 upfront in order to keep the $20 plan as that still qualifies for a small tab.

Where can I find the promo of Nexus 5 on a medium tab? ( I can't find it...)

Add: Oh, duh, never mind. Its at the Best Buy's koodo special. I just came back from dinner.....

On the Koodo website it says the phone is $350 without a tab. With the tab medium it is $0 at your nearest Koodo store.
