Wanting to switch phones and to medium tab


I want to upgrade my phone. I have a charge on my tab i need to pay off first. I want to get a Samsung GalaxyNote II, and on a medium tab, which is $100. I have the $55plan, that was offered for just Mb And SK. When i go to get this phone in the next month, can i keep this plan, i noticed its not offered anymore. Thank you for the person who helps me out!

Yes you can keep your plan since it is over $30 and yep you have to pay the 100 you owe before you can upgrade 🙂
Thank you Daniel! you have been a great help!
I to would like to get the Note 2 but was told I must change my plan. Right now I am on the $15 plan with $5 unlimited text and $5 data bringing it to $25 a month. I do not use voice as I am hearing impaired so this plan is great for me. Is there a way I can do this? I currently have a $60 tab and I will pay it off before getting the note.

Sure you can keep it. But you'll have to stay with Tab S, which is max -150 off the phone. So that would be $200 upfront.

Thanks for the reply! That's what I was trying to avoid. 😞

Hey at least it isn't Virgin, who is forcing everyone who was on SuperTab to change to in market plans to get a new phone regardless of subsidy level...

That's true I seen their plans are more expensive! I wonder if i just add a add on making my plan over $30 that way I can have a med tab.

Unfortunately no, that doesn't work either. Your base plan before add-ons needs to be $30 but the current $29 plan qualifies too.

I guess I will shop around to see what deal I can get for that price that will at least include some data. Thanks so much for your help!

The best you're gonna find is $34 for 200 minutes, E/W unlimited at 5pm, unlimited text, CD/VM, and 50MB on Koodo/Virgin/Fido, add $5 for better phones, and only Koodo carries the Note II anymore these days since they lower retail prices. believe me, I sell all of them.

I think that's what Koodo was offering $29 plus $5 without data though. Do you work for Koodo?

Jonathan works for The Mobile Shop, an independent reseller for several carriers (Koodo included), but is not an employee of Koodo.

OIC Thanks Ivan! That's where I went to try to get a new phone the one in Zehrs.

Yup, that's how it goes. So at this point you can get the Note II on Tab S for 200 and keep your plan the way it is or get it for 50 but go on the $29 + 5. You're paying an extra 9 bucks a month * 24 = 216, so that's overall $66 more than paying the 200 and staying with Tab S...

That makes total sense when you put it that way! Does the $29 plan have any data?

It has pay-per use data for $7.50/50mb which is not very good if you use data frequently.

It doesn't, no. It's $7.50 per 50MB you use, which is pretty bad to be honest, so bite the bullet and go on Tab S for 200. You might even be able to trade in your old phone for some credit towards that.
