I am Brazilian. Can I make a plan ?


I am Brazilian and I am going to Canada to study English for 6 months. It is possible I make a plan for me during that time?

Sure. As long as you pass the credit check, have the appropriate ID, and the plan and phone prices are still available

That's not a plan; it's a phone! You'll need a medium tab plan that costs either $79 or $99 a month, and after six months have to buy out the phone at an additional cost after the initial $50 investment, since the $50 price point is only valid if you keep the plan for two years, not just six months. Or, you buy the phone outright for $350 the day you sign up. Keep in mind, the phone is locked to Koodo, so you'll have to unlock it before heading back to Brazil to use it there, or get it unlocked by Koodo. I believe they charge $35 for that service.

Except for the locked part (my error, sorry) what's wrong with the tab info I commented on?

The medium tab requires a plan over $30. $79($74 + $5) or $99( $94 + $5) a month, if you want to have a Heavyweight Canada-wide plan.

^ ^ ^ Exactly what I mentioned, as did the Best Buy page to get the phone at their posted price. No idea what "Telus Customer" thinks is wrong. Since the OP only wants it for 6 months, he has to pay the 18 month phone tab difference, which works out to about $225 extra.

For 6 months only, why not go prepaid? http://koodomobile.com/en/on/plansandboosters.shtml Do you currently have a phone? You can also buy the Nexus 5 from Google https://play.google.com/store/devices/details/Nexus_5_16GB_Black?id=nexus_5_black_16gb&hl=en

Hi GR, Mayumi is right! With a Medium Tab, Arthur can choose any plan he wants as long as it's at least $30 a month. Thank you.

@Arthur, If you get the phone as shown on the Best Buy website on a medium Tab; After 6 months you will owe $212.40+Tax for the phone when you cancel and close your account

Dennis, So I paid the $ 212.40 + 6 monthly plan ($ 34 per month + $ 5) + the price of the device ($ $ 49.99) = $ 496. That is what I will need to pay? Thank you very much!!

You will pay: If you choose the $34 plan $239.40 + 6months ($34 plan +$5) + the price of the device ($49.99) = $523.39 If you choose the $64 plan $212.40 + 6months ($64 plan +$5) + the price of the device ($49.99) = $676.39

If you need a plan, phone and free long distance to Brazil, you can check out www.gophonebox.com which, along with Koodo, runs on the same Telus network. They can loan you a phone for free for six months, or you can opt to rent a higher end phone. Other than that, if you want to take the phone back with you to Brazil, since you are only needing a 6-month term, you'll have to buy the phone at full price, as phone subsidies/discounts only apply if you take out a 2-year term.
