Doesn't seem that long ago that it went to $30 from $10.

Can you use PC Optimum points to pay the up front costs?

Perhaps, but in my line of thinking one would be better off using a 3-4% gas/groceries credit card to pay upfront costs. Yes, The Mobile Shop within RCSS and Loblaws counts as groceries (at least it did for me a few months ago).

I think if someone bothers to ask that question, they should probably go with the P20 (speaking as someone who primarily uses an iPhone 8, but bought a P20 on a lark but will probably flip it).

Connection Fee is $35, Seasonal Hold $15 × 3 is $45

Get a Koodo referral, that will give you $10 bill credit for 3 months.

So add $50 to hardware costs outlined above.

$150 is on PC Optimum Points which can be put on a PC Optimum Card or PC Financial Mastercard to be used in Loblaw/No Frills/Real Canadian Superstores.

It's actually $35 now. I thought it was $30 until another member alerted me to the price increase.

Can't get seasonal hold for 90 days according to Koodo policy but YMMV and accounts on seasonal hold don't get referral credits.

Oh fair enough

I am pretty sure this made up fee is BECAUSE so many people are churning to get new lines + phones all the time

I sold my 128GB iPhone 7 for $450 and am using an Essential PH-1 I got from Koodo for $240+tax. Honestly, very little difference and I'm a heavy user of the phone.

I moved primarily out of interest, but comparing my PH-1 to the iPhone 7 Plus's I just got for the wife and daughter, I prefer the PH-1.

I'd love to drop $1000 on the iPhone XR, and know that in a couple of years I could sell it for $600+ if it were kept in mint condition so the cost of ownership isn't much different than buying a cheaper iPhone or Android, but there's always the risk of damaging or losing the $1000 phone in those 2-3 years of use.
