GR5 is better phone to use. Harder to sell. I am using a GR5. I like the finger print reader. 2GB RAM which is a must have nowaday. But no NFC - Therefore, forget about using Android pay or AmEx pay.
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.
Public Mobile $37 5GB, $13 250MB, 2x $8 50min/50text, Fido $5 4GB data only plan,
Zoomer $36 loyalty 4GB plan, $0 FPL home phone. Have a better and better day!

Zoomer may not have their own choice. Rogers limits Cityfone's phone selections so that there is less competition against Rogers and Fido.

I guess the next free phone with the $40 plan will be either LG G5 or Samsung J3 Prime.

I almost got a GR5 from Fido as it is only $100 at Fido with 2 year warranty. I even placed an order through their online chat, but noticed that the order was not properly placed when I discussed my data plan with Fido several days later.

I was kind of hoping for the Huawei P10 or P10 lite! The GR5 is OK, but it would be better to have a phone with just a little more oomph.

If you got it before Dec 1, then they might not ship with the code. Just chat with them to get the code.

Free P10 on the $36 plan? The chance is low. P10 lite might have a chance if Rogers has a lot of stock left.

Forget about the P10 for the $36 plan. I got a P10 Lite from Virgin and sold it for $300 last month. P10 Lite may be available by year end depending on how many J3 left at Rogers.

Yeah, I was thinking more likely P10 lite. It doesn't seem that unrealistic... it would follow the general pattern of Zoomer going with a mid-range phone that isn't really new anymore. I doubt too many Rogers or even Fido customers will be opting for P10 lites 9 months from now... those leftover phones have to go somewhere.

Just curious, is your GR5 running Android 6 (Marshmallow) or is it stuck in Lollipop?
