Koodo keeps on messing with the tab eligibility of the Public Mobile migration plans.....

I believe last check was these plans were eligible for small tabs on specific phones only. Definitely not the flagship phones...

I have 3 of these lines for family members and jumped on the XR deals during last BF....

I'll check online later....

I posted this in the S10 hot deals forum. Follow this and you should be able to upgrade.

There is a slight loophole on the requirement of selecting a new plan when upgrading.

1. Add a phone to cart.
2. It asks you to select a new plan. Go to Select Plan. Now a list of your plan at the top and existing plans pop up. Do not select anything.
3. Go to Home screen by selecting Shop>Phones.
4. Select your cart at the top of the page. Now it should allow you to get the phone with your current plan.
5. Pay tab balance (and phone credit if applicable) and checkout.
Koodo $40 13GB!

I'm looking on the Koodo site and none of the phones have a medium tab option?

In case someone is searching, this trick no longer works, they patched the loophole.

You can only get a phone on small tab with the $40/month plan.

What shape was the phone in? How much Apple warranty is left?

I'm stuck with tab basic as well.

Phone is mint.....not a scratch.

Apple warranty until May 2021.

Only came with charger & cable (no headphones) - makes sense for sanitary reasons.

Very nice!

Next time I see a deal via Koodo on the SE2020, I'm on it.

Thank you.

Seems like the only $40 migration plans that work for an upgrade are the 6 GB plans.
