Ok, I know this question has been asked many times, but I think it is time that this becomes clear : Can you, as current customer of Koodo, purchase a phone outright WITHOUT using your tab and WITHOUT having to create a prepaid account. Here are the answers I have been getting : From official Koodo kiosk : -NO, you must use whatever tab you have to buy a phone outright. From customer service by phone : -NO, same as kiosk. From community : Yes, but some say going prepaid is a must for an outright purchase, others will say something else. But mostly, people in the community say yes. From third parties (Futureshop, Phonebooth, Walmarde) : All except the phonebooth will sell you the phone outright without signing up or using your tab. P.S. Please do not give your opinion, guessing is not useful for anyone, but personal experience is welcome and an official message from koodo would be nice also.
