Hi!

I want to make good use of all the great Koodo offers on S10 phones. I have $280 tab balance left on my S9plus which i got last year.

I was wondering what is the best possible way to sell my phone with the remaining tab balance (If this is even possible)?

I know i can just pay off the tab and then sell the phone but i was wondering if there is another way.

Thoughts?
Thanks!

If the phone is unlocked, you can sell it to other people. It will be sold as a "personal sale".

As long as you continue to pay the Tab amount monthly (or pay it off later), everything is fine.

Or you could just transfert the ownership to the person you sell the phone to

You cannot sell off your tab. That stays linked to your account. If you want to do-over a tab then you'll have to pay it off on your next bill to reset your tab. You can just use what you sell your phone for towards that.

The tab is an unsecured loan, not like one for a car or real estate. You can sell the phone any time without consequence, but you are still liable for your tab balance.

A bit of free advice for private party purchasers:
