You're mixed up. Bell was originally CDMA but added GSM a few years ago. Fido/Rogers were always GSM. Half the world has been using this phone on Rogers/Fido for the last few months, including myself. It works.

You are? And you're suggesting that people commit fraud to get a deal on a phone? Weird.

They didn't add GSM(2G), they added HSPA(3G). Bell and Telus share the same network. So this could work on Telus as well. And this new network will be 1 year old in November.

You forgot the price to unlock it if you want to use it on Telus/Rogers/Fido. Are you sure there is no activation fees?

It's a lot of hassle just to get 25% off but that's just me....

No this is a very unique loophole because it is a 3rd party vendor (BB) who is offering an additional $150 non-refundable discount. If at any point Bell decided to offer it for $0, the hardware subsidy that must be refunded would increase from $350 to $500.

I doubt this will happen again any time soon.

Ahh I see. So if a third party (BB/Wireless Wave) offers it, the max cancellation fee is $350. If it's offered by carriers directly, the max is $500. Am I reading it right?

I think people are interested in your loophole, but are concerned about the validity of the Quebec Bill 60 cancellation process.

I've found (link).

With the point:

214.7. If the consumer unilaterally cancels a fixed-term contract in consideration of which one or more economic inducements were given to him by the merchant, the cancellation indemnity may not exceed the value of the economic inducements determined by regulation that were given to him. The indemnity decreases as prescribed by regulation.
When no economic inducement determined by regulation was given to the consumer, the maximum indemnity the merchant may charge is the lesser of $50 and an amount representing not more than 10% of the price of the services provided for in the contract that were not supplied.

Personally, I'm worried about using 'any address in Quebec'. Is there any way you can back up your claim?

What is Fraud?
Fraud:
Deceitful conduct designed to manipulate another person to give something of value by:

1.lying,
2.by repeating something that is or ought to have been known by the fraudulent party as false or suspect or
3.by concealing a fact from the other party which may have saved that party from being cheated.
Canadian Laws Dealing With Fraud
◦Competition Act - An Act to provide for the general regulation of trade and commerce.
CHAPTER C-


False or misleading representations
52. (1) No person shall, for the purpose of promoting, directly or indirectly, the supply or use of a product or ... any business interest, by any means whatever, knowingly or recklessly make a representation to the public that is false or misleading in a material respect.(5) ... liable to a fine in the discretion of the court or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years or to both; or (b) on summary conviction, to a fine not exceeding $200,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding one year, or to both.

or

Bill S-4 creates three new Criminal Code offences related to identity theft, including:

Obtaining and possessing identity information with the intent to use the information deceptively, dishonestly or fraudulently in the commission of a crime.
Trafficking in identity information, an offence that targets those who transfer or sell information to another person with knowledge of, or recklessness as to, the possible criminal use of the information.
Unlawfully possessing or trafficking in government-issued identity documents that contain the information of another person.
All three offences carry five-year maximum prison sentences. In addition, the legislation gives courts the power to order offenders to pay restitution to a victim of identity theft as part of their sentence.

Can someone explain to these clowns that identity fraud means taking advantage of someone else's identity (an actual different person) to their disadvantage in order for you to benefit.

We are talking about billing addresses here, not residential address.
