[Fido, Telus] iPhone XS 64gb - $600 on 24-month plan

Deal Link:
I was waiting for the new iPhone SE ($600 for 64gb) announced yesterday. But had a look at options. Fido has the XS 64gb on for $25 / month for 24-months. Buying online usually requires an upgrade of plan, but if you call in you can usually stay on your current (non-loyalty) plan. Buying from Fido commits you to a 24 month contract. I was on a month-to-month, but have been with fido for years, so no problem switching.

Compared to the iPhone SE 2:

+ XS has better camera (2 cameras vs 1)
+ much bigger screen with nearly the same body dimensions (5.8 vs 4.7)
+ OLED screen
+ Face-ID (although with everyone wearing masks...)
+ better audio

– SE 2 has A13, vs A12 in the XS
– SE 2 Maybe better camera processing, but it's only a single camera

Personally chose the XS, because it is a better phone for me, even though it's 1-½ years old. Phone is brand new, and AppleCare can be bought after receiving it.

Note: if you buy online, you save the $40 fee, but you often get better plan offers by calling. YMMV.

This is a 24 inch contract. If it was a buy outright price then maybe. You can get brand new or like new 64gb xs for 600-650 in marketplace or kijiji and that's with no taxes.

The true price of the phone should factor in the cost of cancellation.

Could you please elaborate a bit more about the cost of cancellation? As OP said, if I can bargain with customer service on phone so likely my plan would not change, which means no cost of cancellation at the end of 24month contract right? Plus, I don't see any brand new XS 64g selling for 650 on kijiji yet, they are all 800+. I'm in Montreal.
