If either the S20 FE or iPhone 11 interest you, you won't do better than Absolute $0 on a $60/20GB plan.

It depends somewhat on your data needs. Shaw by the gig, with 1gb (90 day expiry) for $10/gb. My wife and kids use somewhere between 300 and 500mb a month each, so that $10 might last 2 or 3 months, but lets assume 1 month only.
Iphone 11 retail for $849 = $35.38 a month + $10 for data.

So for me, it's better to pickup for retail paying equivalent of ~$45 a month. Of course, if you need the 20GB of data, or anything more than 2.5gb a month on average, then the $60 Absolute $0 is great value.

I'm still waiting for BF though and for possible discounts once the 12s are actually available.

Damn. I recently bought a great used condition Oneplus 7 Pro then I saw this. Plus I was looking into the $35/10Gb plan to switch back to Freedom... Wife is gonna kill me but I think I'm actually gonna get the S20 FE. Just saw FB ad and there's a Samsung Fit 2 included for free. I know I am sacrificing the stock Android but I am so into the refreshing rate, decent camera, and the battery life. Anyone knows the 8GB RAM version will be coming out soon and worth waiting vs. the 6GM RAM. Also anyone know the speed of the 6GB RAM?

If I'm on the $50/8GB (+1GB US data) and 35% off, will I lose my 35% if I switch to the $60/20gb plan for this phone?

It will convert to a flat $15 discount if you make any plan changes.

Those of you thinking 6GB isn't enough, are you confident you use the phone that heavily?

6GB is still comfortable for most people. If you have 100+ tabs open across multiple browsers, then I can see an impingment.

Likewise, if you're into custom or niche apps that use alot of RAM.

S20 FE is about $800 flat out right. $1627 - $800.

$827 / 24 = $34.

Basically, you pay $34 for a 20gb freedom line for 2 years.

Does anyone know if a 10 year old flip phone that still turns on qualifies?

Interested but worried about a signal issues.
Can anyone tell me how the wifi calling and texting works?
Does the phone switch from cellular to wifi calling automatically? Does it only switch when cellular reception is low?

If there's a time to make a stand against the big $, now's the time with most of us stuck at home.

Wifi Calling, where it exists, switches automatically with Cellular, no input required from you. There is essentially one standard with 2 connections: VoLTE + VoWIFI.
Some times LTE is prioritized, other times WiFi is. But you never get the interruption.
