Can I use my current tab to purchase a new phone without a tab or plan?

I want to purchase a new phone for my father using my tab balance, but don't want to put a tab or plan on the phone. My father has a different provider other than Koodo, will he be able to use the phone purchased from Koodo for another phone company?

You can buy the phone without issue. If you are buying a Nexus phone, then no unlocking is required. If you are buying any other phone you can unlocked via 3rd party online or via koodo https://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CB0QFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fhelp.koodomobile.com%2Fgetting-started-with-koodo%2Fsim-cards-and-non-koodo-phones%2Fhow-do-i-know-if-i-am-eligible-to-get-my-koodo-phone-unlocked&ei=kldBVeCTK4a2oQSPzoGYBQ&usg=AFQjCNGOAg9aeVZ6o6l-qSfChWXlUXl5Og&sig2=Wsx3V1GnVsDWqTo1PybXQQ&bvm=bv.92189499,d.cGU
