Yes you can keep your plan and go with either a Tab Small or Tab Medium.

A Tab Medium requires a plan of at least $30.
Note that with a Tab Medium there will be a $5 monthly Tab charge

Yes the $5 monthly Tab charge will go toward your tab.

If you go with Tab Small:
iPhone 4s = $300
Tab Small = $150
Your Current Tab = +$75 (I assume it is a +75 credit and not -75 owing)

Total upfront costs = $300 -$150 -$75 = $75 + taxes

EDIT: For somereason I used $74 as the tab credit. I have corrected this to $75

If you stay with Tab S, the 4S will cost $225 + taxes ($75 to clear your existing tab + $150).

The $5 monthly Tab charge does go directly to paying off your Tab Medium

Yea that part is confusing.

Sarah, is that tab $75 owning or you have built up a credit of $75 on your tab?

Yes Tab Medium is actually the best deal in almost all cases.

Yes after you pay off your current $75 Tab owing your up front costs will be $0.

Remember there will be an extra $5 monthly Tab charge though with Tab Medium.

And yes you will get to keep your current $45 plan. This is the awesome part about Koodo. Other providers make you switch to their current plans even if you want to upgrade to a non-high end phone.

When you upgrade your phone, you will automatically be bumped to 15% toward your tab for any of the Tab sizes

If you go with the Tab M, the "actual cost" to you is $75 + (24 x $5) = $195 + taxes after 2 years. A bit cheaper than Tab S if you refer to my previous calculation.

Yes, your new tab would be 15%. It has no effect on your plan.
