Mobilicity, WIND Mobile or Virgin Mobile Supertab? Please Help.

I am currently thinking about getting a plan and im getting very confused for which provider i should go with. The plans that I am looking at are all $15 plans, which fill my needs. So far the most appealing one is the WIND $15 plan which gives me 100 province wide minutes which is basically as much as I need, however i am still thinking about the Mobilicity plan as well. For the Virgin Mobile Supertab, i am not exactly sure about it because i still have not fully understood what they are trying to do lol I am very confused. Can someone explain to me please? I am VERY confused.

Virgin Mobile Supertab similar to Koodoo Tab system. Every month, they will give you 10% of your bill to pay for your phone... and you either have to stay with them until the phone is paid off or you have to pay the full unpaid amount if you want to quit them...

For cheap phone, the tab system works but for expensive phone like iPhone the tab system is very bad...

For example, the iPhone 4 32GB...

Full price = $769.99
3 years contract price = you pay advanced $269.99
SuperTab = you pay advanced $269.99 + SuperTab $500 (deduct 10% every bill)

So if you only have $15 plan ==> 10% = $1.5 ==> with Supertab system you have to pay $500 / $1.5 a month = 333 months = 27.8 years lol...

You can still save some money with the supertab, you won't have to pay full price for a phone... it'll still be partly subsidized over time.

Wind and Mobilicity doesn't subsidize phones but they do have a range of fairly cheap phones available since neither offer contracts.

You went with Rogers. I hope most people don't go with Chatr, support the new kid wind/mobilicity/public mobile/, cause once Chatr starts stealing Wind's customers, Wind/ mobi/ go bankrupt. We are all back to square one, Rogers pulls of Chatr, the big 3 jack up prices, RFD'ers start crying that they are paying too much. Just can't wait till this day happens, I will dig this post up and laugh/cry/ my ass off.

P.S I'm not psycho, I am drunk hehe

Mob/wind/public have limited coverage around many areas. Since Chatr is Rogers, it uses the rogers towers which covers more than double the areas the other 3 do.
