Use that $800 to buy an iphone 12 straight out, why only save $312.

Some people aren't real RFDers.
You’re locked in to a minimum $60 plan with the “absolute 0”, so that’s at least $240 more over the 2 years. Also, selling privately sucks.

What happens if you don't need another phone line?

Or don't want to deal with the hassle?

Or TMS is OOS?

Or no time machine since that deal is over?

Our price is even higher than Japan, Hongkong, Australia, UK, etc. https://themacindex.com/lines/iphone?currency=USD
This is actually untrue. Those prices are including things like tax refunds for tourists (in some countries you get consumption taxes refunded at the airport when you leave).

If you don't factor in tax, Canadian prices are actually quite competitive.

Lol first off as above post stated not true regarding boxing day xr on 50 everywhere. *
Second xr is not 11.
*
You really think none of us with grandfathered plans did not try getting zero dollars iPhone 11 or Samsung fe (before they took it off this zero dollar and replaced with $15 tab minus trade in). You just woke up and had this grand scheme no one has thought of? And that makes us 'not true rfd'ers'?

* it was a $10 tab on a $50 plan on boxing day. It was free on black friday for $60 plan.

The $10 tab was waived by loyalty, even if it wasn't waived, still was saving over $600..

I live close to bathurst, vaughn/st clair west. I barely get 1 bar outside and indoors at stores It drops to 3G. this deal is amazing but you guys are totally right about the coverage, I found Koodo's coverage to be the same around that intersection, anyone knows if rogers/fido or bell/virgin have good coverage in that area ?

Iphone 12: Upfront cost: $1152. Deal: Preorder at Freedom for $0 upfront on a $55 plan and $35 tab, total savings: $312
Iphone 12 Pro: Upfront cost: $1440. Deal: Preorder at Freedom for $0 upfront on a $55 plan and $45 tab, total savings: $360
Both of these are for the base models.

Obviously i have to add that this deal isn't for everyone
1. You have to live/work in an area with great freedom coverage
2. No 5G network for now.
3. You are locked to a 2 year contract with Freedom mobile, leave early and you have to pay off the tab balance + the device savings yet to be discounted.

Now with those out of the way, not a bad way to get the iphone 12 right now.

EDIT: Comparing this to other Carriers:
1. Fido: $638 upfront, $33.34 monthly tab, plus whatever plan for the 12 pro. $361 upfront, $33.34 monthly tab for the 12.
2. Koodo: Fido: $648 upfront, $33 with tab plus, for the 12 pro. $361 upfront, $33 with tab plus for the 12.
3. Telus: $0 upfront, $40 monthly if you bring it back, $60 monthly if you don't, with plans starting from $75/month, for the 12 pro, $30 monthly if you bring it back, $48.33 monthly if you don't, with plans starting from $75/month for the 12.
My Cost is $72.25 on Freedom.

because nobody in their right mind will give you 800 dollars for your iphone 11... also a lot of people don't want to go through the hell that is Kijiji.

Still, just get iphone 11 and use it. to me iphone 12 is not worth it.

Received envelope with SIM card from Bell yesterday.
Winback with 15GB + unlimited throttled @ $60/month (been with them for a few months couple of years ago for the Apple Watch cellular plan)

LOL, I'd better add 30 something on Freedom and get the 12 Pro included :-D

Just the plan, nothing about devices at all, that's the LOL part :)
