Can I get a better deal than this cell plan?

It's with Koodoo and the plan is 4GB of data, unlimited call/text for $45 + $15 tab for 24months on a XR 64GB. Important thing for me in the plan is the data which is more than adequate and the phone on the a medium tab. Upfront cost is roughly $500 it's still $800+ for the phone after the term.

Wondering if there's a better deal out there for a flagship phone atm.

Get the XR from Koodo and cancel immediately. Go to Zoomer for the 36 dollars 4GB plan and get a free phone. Then sell the phone.

Thanks, I just spoke to one of their online agents.

Is Zoomer's network patchy or reliable?

They are owned by Rogers so they use Rogers network. Very reliable

How do one go about to get this deal? I checked the website and the lowest plan they have is 40+.

If you go and cancel Koodo and pay off the tab, you are now free of any contract. Why would you jump back into a 2 yr contract with Zoomer? Look at prices 2 yrs ago compared to today, much cheaper today. Having the ability to 'upgrade' to a lower price plan whenever you want, to me that is worth more than selling a 3rd tier phone on Kijiji

You can change price plans anytime even if you’re in a contract.

2 year commitment is to the carrier, not the price plan

I finally picked up my kit and the contract they sent out only shows 3gb. Is this bait and switch?

I have to say LTE is freakin fast. Even faster ish than my wifi st home which is bottleneck by the Rogers modem.

I also distinctively remember seeing 500minutes a month but again the contract only shows 200minutes. Da hell?

LTE faster on Rogers? Koodo has always been faster for me... Can't even play live games properly on Rogers for me. laggggg
