Upgrading to a new phone with in-store specials

If I wanted to upgrade my phone and take advantage of the in-store offers (eg $100 or $75 Best Buy for the Samsung Galaxy S4), do I have to switch to a new plan or can I stick to my existing plan and add $5 for a Tab Medium??

I believe your plan needs to be a minimum of $30.00(before the tab charge) for a medium tab to be offered, so if your current plan is less than that I believe you would have to switch plans.

Thanks. my plan is $50 w 1GB of data so I didn't want to switch to their current plans but adding the $5 med tab is ok

Matthew is correct. But also note, that some of those in-store offers are for 'activations' only or 'renewals/upgrades' only. Enjoy the S4! Well built phone.

Another phone I'd recommend is the Nexus 5, it is a great phone, a lot of phone reviewers on YouTube tend to still compare that phone to other 2014 flagship phones and it blows them out of water. The nice thing about Nexus devices is that they get updates directly from Google and they come factory unlocked so you don't need to worry about a $35 unlock fee if you chose to do that with another phone. You can get the Nexus 5 on a tab medium for $0 as of right now which is awesome! 😃 https://shop.koodomobile.com/koodo-cell-phones/android/nexus-5/prodKLLGNEXUS5BK.html Ultimately it's your decision as to what phone is going to work best for you, but I thought I'd give you another phone to consider. Hope that helps! 🙂
Thank you for the suggestion, I will consider it
I have a Galaxy S2. If I pay off my tab of $23, I can get a Galaxy S3 for $0 on Tab S but after reading the reviews, I would much rather go to the LG Nexus 5 for $0 on a Tab 300 for NEW ACTIVATIONS and RENEWALS and both include a Bonus $100 London Drugs.gift card.......but I'm wondering if I qualify or how can I qualify?
