I have a galaxy S4 & the tab is paid off for a while now and I have a positive 150$ on my account (to be honest, not sure where it comes from) but I was told I can use it towards an upgrade. The only thing is, I was wondering cost wise how much it is to upgrade my phone? Probably to at least s6 MAYBE s7?

If you have a positive balance it means your on the old tab structure where Koodo would contribute to your tab to help pay it off quicker, once it was paid they keep contributing up to 150$ that u can use to upgrade. To upgrade now, you will have to accept the new terms as the Tab structure changed and they no longer will be contributing.

If you pick the S6 on Tab Normal it will cost you $400 up front, but since u have 150 that will go to $250 upfront and then $15 per month on top of your monthly rate plan. If you pick it on Tab large you will pay $106 upfront and then $21 a month for 24 months on top of your monthly plan.

Hope this helped

Taking advantage of the S7 200 off when you trade in a phone deal with a 150 tab would be tempting if you were ok with switching to a tab plus plan. I'd look at all the 15 dollar/month tab price points to see what it would cost. Really it's cost-150 but for you to know how much you'd pay upfront. You could also sell your S4 to go towards a new phone.
