OK so there is the old and new tab system. The old system had a 10-15% tab contribution from Koodo as well as a monthly contribution from you if you picked tab medium or large. Once it was at zero it would accumulate a positive balance up to 150 that you can use towards a new phone. Now the new tab system is basically just an interest free loan that you pay back and sometimes the phone is ~50 dollars cheaper or a sale price is done via the tab. You no longer get a positive balance and when you use the old positive balance if you have one then you agree to use the n tab. Once it reaches zero you stop paying and you just pay fo your plan
