The WP8 is really nice but I don't think you'd want to be stuck with it for 3 years. You'll also have a harder time reselling it.

Trick question! Never sign a 3 year contract, for any reason.

I think you'll be happy with anything but that depends on your expectations. It will make phone calls, text, and have the same functionality for the next 3 years; if thats what you want for 3 years, anything will make you happy. If you want a product to grow with you and you have expectations that its going to be amazing in 6-12 months, you'll be unhappy no matter what you buy.

If it was me I would get an iPhone and sell it, buy an S3 or Nexus 4 elsewhere, and pocket the leftover cash.

You don't really win

Rogers sells the iphone 5 for $180
They sell the SIII for $99

iphone 5 16GB sells online for just over $700 (retail)
Now, keep in mind, paypal charges you 3%, ebay charges you 3.5%. That alone brings your earnings down to $655.23

Now the Galaxy SIII sells brand new for $650 in stores. You can probably find it for around $600 brand new in box online. You're gaining $50. Now, take into account that you already paid $180 for the phone on contract. You've essentially lost $130 by doing this. Is it worth all that effort?

The only way you win, is if somebody gives you over retail value for the iphone 5 in cash, but I can't see why they would. It's locked, and they're not hard to come by anymore.
