Buying a phone on Koodo without an active plan


Hey, 

I'm looking to get an iPhone 7 (256GB) from Koodo, but would also like to stick with and use it on my current provider (Public Mobile). Is it possible to just get the phone or pay it off immediately if it's on a tab?

No, you can't buy a Koodo phone unless you have a Koodo postpaid plan, Jordan. You can buy the phone directly from Apple though.

You can buy it on the Tab, but you can only pay that off after 90 days, if you want to go that route.

But you would need to have an account and pay for a plan which will end up being more expensive in the end.

On a side note, you are also free to overpay your Koodo account via online banking. For some people, if they anticipate a big tab (device balance) buy-out in the coming weeks or months, they may want to make installments to their Koodo account in advance. This cannot be done by credit card (Koodo will not allow overpaying a Koodo account by more than 20% of the bill).
