'Sash[DSL wrote:;15681419']Hey guys,

I have no experience with koodoo. It uses Telus/Bell networks, so naturally the phones will not be compatible with Rogers or fido, nor Wind/Mobilicity?

Also, does koodoo negotiate better plans if you call in before signing up for a plan?
It work on Fido/Rogers/Wind/Mobilicity.

Not sure about the second one, as companies typically only offer retention plans. If you want cheap, go with Wind/Moblicity.


EDIT: if it's 300-200 then it is much much colder than before (even though its only $50 more)

So I guess no one actually got this phone for 0$ + 150$ tab from WM? I only saw 148$ + 150$ tab, which is not really a deal.

In fact it should work on Rogers/Fido/Bell/Virgin/Telus/Koodo/Wind/Mobilicity/Vidéotron/TMobile all on 4G (or whatever speed they have). You'll probably need to invest $20 to unlock it if you want to go off Telus/Koodo.

I've had this phone from Telus for a year and after unlocking it worked fine on TMobile's 100min+5GB=$30 plan (which despite the marketing isn't tied to WalMart, it just requires a new SIM and online activation. It's a great plan if you're going on vacation to the US and don't need a lot of airtime and don't want a contract. Otherwise I haven't tried data on any other network besides Telus.

The new Nexus 4 is essentially the same in terms of networks (most of the negative reviews have been its lack of LTE, which is a bigger issue in the US I think). When that comes out at C$309 it will definitely hurt the market for the SIIx at $300 [thus the current $100 gift card promo, which is real even if the $0+$150 was a mistake by a WM clerk], though the latter does have a few benefits (32GB microSD capability, removable battery, non-glass back, possibly the Super AMOLED Plus screen).

Yes.

You are confused. This phone does not come in 8gb or 16gb versions.
If you meant it doesn't come in two versions, you are correct. If you meant it doesn't come in EITHER 8GB or 16GB, the S2X is 16GB.

$200 would be fine but even then its not really $200. It is $300 with a Walmart giftcard, plus one month of service fees, plus taxes on $300. At that point you might as well get a Nexus 4. You might save ~ $50 but you are still stuck with store credit instead of cash and a phone that is arguably inferior.

what's the difference between this one ( Samsung Galaxy S II X ) with Samsung Galaxy S II 4G?

Samsung Galaxy S II X is a 4G phone or not?

I saw at future shop today that Virgin Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II 4G is about $250 after the $50 GC.

True, as even if you get this deal it is not far from Koodo deal of $150 down +$150 tab less $100 GC = $200. (which was also Virgin SGII deal week ago adding to $200 cost). As Nexus 4 comes up at $350, you may see Galaxy Nexus dropping to $250 and it makes sense that SGII with 800x480 resolution, crippled by Samsung should sell at $50-$100 less than Galaxy Nexus.

Take a look here:
http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?id ... hone2=4468

Samsung Galaxy S II X (T989D) supports 4G (DC-HSDPA 42Mbps), can be used on 1700/2100 MHz frequencies (Wind/Mobilicity after unlocking), is slightly lighter, has a slightly bigger screen, has a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, better battery life.

The Samsung Galaxy S II 4G (I9100M) only supports 4G HSDPA 21Mbps will not work on Wind/Mobilicity even after unlocking, only has a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU.

I played around with the Samsung GS2X T989D, it can be unlocked for $15 with mobile express canada. Rooting and flashing SlimBean is fairly straight forward but battery life on Mobilicity was sub-par due to weak signal in Markham.

Flipped on Kijiji at cost and waiting for Nexus 4.

Not really a "flip" then. Flip implies at least some modicum of profit. You liquidated! :razz: :-0
