Whats the current $36 plan offering? 4GB?
Yes. $36 400 CW minutes + 4GB with 2 years contract and get a free phone.
No contract = month-to-month = $36 200 CW minutes + 500MB data. No free phone
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.

I always wonder why they don't advertise this deal on their website. Isn't it better for them to do so?

As far as I know, Rogers may have some restrictions on their advertisements.

My son currently has an iPhone 4S. It's crap, I know. Too old, too small. He does needs a better phone with some data then just talk & text.

In his dreams he wants a Samsung S9. I don't have the money for that.

Which of these phones would be a good phone? J3, A5, A8. Or is the $36 plan limited to just the J3?

J3 is free with the $36 plan.

You need to pay $150 to get the A5 with the $36 plan. A cheaper option is get the $40.5 plan with a free A5.

A8 is just to expensive.

I think A5 might be the choice for you.

You can also get the J3 or Moto E5 for free and sell it. Then you can wait for a Koodo phone deal or get a Samsung phone from eBay when they have 15% off.

J3 is getting old, definitively get the Moto E5 Play that just came out to sell it, then buy a Xiaomi or something

I have been with zoomer for over 2 years and currently on $36 loyalty plan. I am wondering if I can get a new free phone while stay on loyalty?

Yes. You can renew for another 2 years to get a free phone and stay with your loyalty plan.

If Kesali doesn't want to take the approach of selling a Zoomer-supplied device and then buying another one, the A5 is probably the most reasonable compromise. It won't be a dream machine but at the very least it would be a decent upgrade from the iPhone 4S, which must be over 6 years old by now?

Thank you. I am thinking in terms of keeping the phone and he would be using it as his phone. I haven't heard of the Moto E5 until this thread/today. I'll compare the two and see if any other BF phone sales come on. But considering monthly phone plan prices, I think this may be the best. He can buy himself an expensive phone when he has a job and the money.

Then go with the E5 play, not J3 Prime.

Is the $25-10% the cheapest talk and text plan? And does it include unlimited Zoomer-to-Zoomer Canada-wide talk?

Get the zoomer plan and sell the phone immediately. Then try to see what Koodo has for phones. You can sign up and cancel within 2-3 days and keep the phone.

I got the Galaxy S7 for $140 via Koodo (i.e. they offered gift cards to offset against the tab). Though the S9 is bit expensive, the similar S8 (which looks like the S9 lol) would probably be $140 come Black Friday. Keep an eye on future RFD threads in a couple weeks-it'll pop up

The cheapest plan is $16.2

If I remember correctly, free Zoomer to Zoomer is included in all plans.
