Hi guys, has anyone been offered an iPhone X 64gb within the last two or so days? A couple people have reported that they’ve been told the 64gb model is out of stock. Just wondering if anyone else has had luck.

If you go to their website and select X 64gb you can order it online so how can it be OOS I wonder why they would be telling potential returning customers a fake story. Looks like it might be a RFD effect or they are trying to clear out the 256 models before getting rid of the 64's. Hmmm.

The discount doesnt (yet) show up on my account confirmation PDF but I apparently have over $590 in account credit. It does not quite add up to ($90-25%)x24 months but close. Weird.

Why would someone want 64GB over 256GB?!

Resale would be better for the 256GB right? Especially when new phones storage capacities keep on increasing. Soon 64GB will look like it belongs to a child just like the earlier iPhone gen models.

Why do people need more than 64gb? I have a 32gb iPad that has nothing on it. Netflix, Spotify, Plex have replaced the need to store media files. If you download a lot of apps tho, I can understand.

guys, i was offered $100-25%, which comes to $75+tax monthly for 10GB+unlimited callings plan with S9+ @ no cost. i asked if theres an 8GB plan, she was like no. either 5GB for $65+tax or 10GB @ $75+tax... i was hoping to get the 10GB plan @ $75-25% plan or at least around $60..$65 monthly.. should i try to call them and try to speak to another agent? or that wouldnt work.
It could depend on which province you're in as to which plan u get, u might be stuck with that offer you could ask again if not just stick to what they have i guess. Going for the higher data is def worth it in imo esp if u know u use lots of data. all the best!!

Went through the winback process last week and negotiated the unlimited 6gb plan for $80 less 25% discount. iPhone X 64gb for $29 2 year term on a large tab.

Originally it was $90 extra large tab less 25%. I had to call back several times to get this. They call back if you leave a message indicating that "you want to accept a recent offer."

The deal changes on a daily basis according to the reps I conversed with.

After I received the iPhone X I called *611 and asked if I could exchange my X because I wanted it in Silver instead of Space Grey. The only silver iPhone is the XS version. She was definitely a newbie so after fifteen minutes of explaining the process, blah blah, she said there would be a $330 price difference. I accepted and paid with credit card. I requested a return shipping waybill by email and returned the iPhone X.

Received the IPhone XS 2 days later.

My monthly bill is $383 after all the credits and charges, excluding the $330 upgrade fee. The balance on the account is $53. I have 2 lines, approximately $140 monthly, so there is still an $87 credit If you pay off the monthly charges.

For the life of me, I can't follow the logic if the charges and credits. It appears that I got the iPhone XS for $330 less $87.

In summary, it's a YMMV, depending on the rep on either the Winback or Fido (for the exchange. )

Hope this verbose reply helps.

Did you exchange 64GB iPhone X to 256GB iPhone XS?

The $87credit could be waiving the activation fees or something else.

iphone XS is 64gb. The price difference for 256gb would be $530 on the Large plan.
