I am with Virgin Mobile right now on a BYOP plan.
Virgin recently moved away from the silver/gold/platinum tier structure for device plans and introduced something called the Sweet Pay, With sweet pay customers make additional monthly payments towards the device for 2 years. After 2 years, the additional monthly payment for the device goes away and only the plan amount needs to be paid. Even though the features as well as prices of the BYOP and the Sweet Pay plans are the same right now, Virgin does not allow hardware upgrades unless a BYOP plan has been switched over to a Sweet Pay plan.
Is that how Koodo hardware upgrades work as well?
Does a BYOP subscriber require a plan change to a TAB Basic, Mid or Plus plan to do an upgrade?
Or does it work more like Freedom mobile where the Tab is just an extra monthly payment on top of any plan for 2 years to pay for the phone?

Like I said, Koodo generally does not have byod plans that make you ineligible for tabs. Unless that particular plan says not eligible for tab, then you're ok. So generally more like Freedom if you want to make a comparison with another company.
