I have an old plan (before April 19, 2015) where Koodo contributed to the tab balance every month. Will Koodo continue to contribute to the tab if I keep my old plan? I understand that with the new ones, the plans are cheaper but Koodo does not contribute to the tab balance.

Koodo will continue contributing to your current tab until you decide to take an upgrade. At which to point koodo would no longer contribute to your new tab.

My tab is actually positive right now, but I'm weighing whether it would be worth it for me to change from my old plan to a new one. If Koodo does not continue to contribute to my tab balance, then obviously it is better to switch to one of the cheaper new plans. However, if the contribution Koodo tab contribution continues if I keep my old plan, it is actually a better deal than the new ones, even though they appear cheaper.

I would say continue to earn positive tab and then do upgrade because by doing upgrade there is no way back. The higher positive tab the lower will be Tab charge for next phone.

Let says you get S4 with Koodo its $0 in store and 360/24=$15 will be tab charge on top of your plan

If you have +150 Tab then it would be 210/24=$8.75 will be tab charge on top of your plan

Thanks Amir, that's what I was thinking, but I am just hoping to find out if the positive tab will continue to get larger now. Or will Koodo stop contributing since they have phased that out for all the new plans?

Until you don't do upgrade nothing will be changed. You will be earning 15% of your monthly bill and will be adding +tab.

Once you do upgrade then everything will be changed.

I hope that's true! I will have to wait until my next bill to find out I suppose, unless someone from Koodo can confirm.

I am very much confident that it is true as I work in wireless industry and also represent Koodo

Peter, note that your positive tab will only continue to grow until it is positive $150. At which point your positive tab will not grow anymore

In that case like after tab accumulation of 150 koodo should give 15% cash discount on to the monthly bills - yes?

Hey there!

When your Tab reaches $150 the contribution will stop and you will keep your regular monthly plan. 

Hope this helps!

On the old system, if you didn't have the tab you got a discount or a credit for a new phone.  But now that is just taken away and our plans are effectively increased by 10-15% per month without us agreeing to these contract changes. I think it is fine that koodo has changed the tab, but I don't like that they aren't honoring existing contracts.

They are sneaky.  They dont actually change your plan or take it away.  They wait for you to make a change to something else for you to lose it.  If you never use tab or change your plan you can keep the BYOD discount

Thanks Dennis, I have a while until I hit that mark, so I'm happy to keep saving up for a new phone if the Moto G ever dies.

After I complained of the removal of the 10% BYOD discount, a Koodo supervisor agred to clear out my tab (~63$). I remain on my old plan. I suppose that I keep accumulating the 15% Koodo contribution?

If the positive tab continues to grow to 150$ let's say and then I get a new phone from Koodo (I use the 150$ from my positive tab and I pay all the rest out of my pocket), will I be able to remain on my current "grandfathered" plan (QC 45$ 1GB) (and keep accumulating 15% towards the next next phone)?

No. The new plans are separate from the Tab now. You'll be paying the Tab on top of your plan.

"will still accumulate 15% on your positive Tab, until you upgrade".... This doesn't appear to be true.I've never upgraded my plan. Since the new website changed over my positive tab ceases to exist. It's now only 0.00. What's the deal?

Have you ever upgraded your device?

No. I've had the same plan and phone (Galaxy S3) since 2013. I had a positive balanced tab showing on the website up until a few months ago (or whenever) they changed over the website.

Actually. Unless adding/enabling the International Voice Roaming counted (it's classified as a free add-on and not part of my plan). My plan didn't technically change as they all have the option to enable it for free. You just have to activate the feature to access it. I assume it's to make sure people don't get random charges unexpectedly.

I really believe the new system sucks. I guess we are all being sucked in to paying for all the rip-off's that stuck koodo with their unpaid bills. Not fair for long term loyal paid-up customers.

Rip offs was included in the prices from the get go. Not included, was those who signed 3 year contracts and then got them over turned by the CRTC.
