Early upgrade to iPhone as a gift - can we activate phone later?

My daughter currently has a Motorola Moto G 3rd generation and we want to upgrade her to an iPhone for Christmas as a surprise. Can we get the new phone now and activate it at Xmas?

Hi Nancy, You can purchase the phone through the tab. However, the primary account holder is there and if your daughter logs into the self serve app, there is a chance she can see the purchase. Do note that there is only a 15 day return policy on the phones, so if it's not the right color or model, you wouldn't be able to return it through Koodo.

Ummmm.... I'm guessing your.gift would not include saddling your daughter with a TAB cost, so you would be buying the phone outright. If so, you can buy the phone independent of a plan if you wish, and she can simply activate the nano-SIM which comes with the iPhone in self-serve. Her plan would then be attached to the new phone.
