Hey! I'm looking to buy the moto g power at the retail price option on koodo. Wondering how this differs from buying a phone and putting it on a prepaid plan? Do I completely own the phone if I buy it on retail price (the $315 option). Am I locked into the retail price plans or could I simply switch to a koodo prepaid sim and put a prepaid plan on it!? Appreciate it! Summary: do I own the phone? Can I switch it to a prepaid plan at any time?

Prepaid customers can bring just about any phone they want unlocked to koodo. I currently run a pixel 3 on koodo prepaid. So why couldn't I use this phone if I flat out own it with no tab?
You can do that. No one is disputing it. We are only letting you know that you can get the phone on a Tab, which is subsidized, as long as you stick with Koodo on a postpaid plan for the entire 24-month period.
You can also choose to buy the phone at the retail price and stick with a prepaid plan, albeit not with Koodo. You will need to buy it from a third-party retailer, such as Amazon, eBay, or other big-box stores. If you were to purchase the phone with Koodo, you will have to add a postpaid plan, even at the retail price.
For your information, these are the prepaid phones you can choose with Koodo, which does not include the Moto G Power. https://www.koodomobile.com/prepaid-phones
