You can’t get referral when on seasonal hold.

Kijiji seems to be well stocked with BNIB sealed S9's and IP8's
Not trying to be sarcastic and feel sorry you can't get the deal but I blame the greedy selfish flippers for retail OOS.
I hope you can still find one and enjoy the new phone!

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but how does this deal work? Do i need to sign up for a phone plan plus add the medium tab? Or can I just get a medium tab (to pay for the phone only) without having a Koodo plan?
If I do need to sign up for a plan, wouldn't that be an additional charge per day that I have the plan before cancelling it?

Yes you need a plan and a sim and phone number. Then you can cancel or stick with it. And you will be charged for that day.

Not sure, I'm sure someone has the info from the flyer or wherever the deal was advertised.

If your plan doesn't qualify for the upgrade, then you could get a 2nd line on your account with a medium tab in order to qualify for the phone. Here are the medium tab phone plans offered by Koodo (click on 'Tab Medium' and the plans will be listed there):

https://www.koodomobile.com/rate-plans? ... Shop_Plans

Thereafter, if you choose to cancel that 2nd line, you'll only have to pay:
Medium Tab - $360
Connection Fee - $35
Perforated Charges - Varies ($2-20)
Taxes - Around $50
Gift Card - $150 (yours to keep, so subtract this amount from total)

After accounting for the gift card, the total after cancelling comes out to around $300 after taxes. There is no cancellation fee. You will get billed in self-serve for the cancelled line several days after you put in the cancellation (however, it could take up to 4 weeks). You'll have 30 days to pay off the bill before interest starts to accrue. However, doing the second method puts you at risk of being blacklisted. If you decide to keep the 2nd line and/or are eligible for a hardware upgrade, you would be able to pay off the tab in full after 90 days.

Is there an option on Koodo selfserve (online) to cancel once you add a second line or do you need to call in or port out to cancel? I want to keep my first line.

What happens when you are blacklisted? Does Koodo stop you from buying new phones or is it just the specific store you shopped at?

Thanks

I've seen photos that were vibrant and on par with the clarity and texture of the xs and pixel 3 (some instances, even more so) , and seen photos that looked like they came from a Note 4. The photos I took recently are beautiful and don't represent the off-putting photos I've seen, but having upgraded from an Note 4 to an s7 to this one, I'll give you advice: lower your expectations. If there's one thing Samsung doesn't do well for it's flagship status, is photos. On the other hand, I'm willing to take Samsung's video capabilities over the competition. Strictly subjective, but I think the quality/contrast/colors out of the box are better on the Samsung phones than any other I've seen so far, video wise.
oh i would also like to mention that the preview of the photo is actually well detailed and sharp, but only gets soft once the photo has been taken so this must be a software issue?
Someone on reddit recommended me to remove HDR.

If I get a new Iphone 8 then port out would I have to wait 90 days until i'll get billed? How does it work? Does it mean I have to pay 15$ for 3 months or after 3 months i have to pay 360$?

For those converting BB GC to Visa prepaid, is there a $150 denomination available at Best Buy?
I love RFD! :)
