I'm interested... Will it be unlockable to use for Telus and Fido in the future? Sorry I'm new to this.

Yes.
The Virgin Mobile version can be unlocked and used with Telus, Bell, Rogers, Fido, and Koodo.

There's a good chance that FS will PM this, but it is not a sure thing. They could use the excuse that this is a Doorcrasher/time limited offer to avoid doing so.
I don't see any way to use the BB gift cards to pay off the tab, unless some one has a technique for "laundering" them back to cash or debit at BB? Or maybe you could use them to buy Virgin Mobile cards and they might be usable to pay down a Tab?

Are you sure it is $150 on the tab? It can be 200 or 300 on the super tab. on the ads it says on the virginMobile SuperTab.

The flyer fine print does say "New in store activation required on a $150 or $100 Virgin Mobile Super Tab with Talk and Text or Smartphone plans."
Some of the other vendors may have a higher tab amount, but BB/FS seem to get a break and only have a $150 tab on most VM phones. I ran into this with the VM HTC Wildfire offer, BB/FS had a $150 tab on it and The Mobile Shop had the same phone but with a $200 tab.

So whats the cheapest talk & text plan this can be activated with? Is it possible to stay with Virgin for a month and then cancel (like Koodo deals).

So I just went and did this since my Iphone 3GS is on it's last legs and Telus has me by the balls for another 22 months. I paid 0 dollars for the phone and got the supertab (150). I got a 125 dollar gift card and got the 20 dollar plan. He told me to call and cancel after 14 days and they'll send me a bill for 150 + 20. So basically I'm paying 45 bucks for the 9300 which isn't too bad at all.

I saw a few other phones but the gift card was less than the 125, and it was on their 350 dollar supertab rather than the 150 dollar one.
