If I get a new Iphone 8 then port out would I have to wait 90 days until i'll get billed? How does it work? Does it mean I have to pay 15$ for 3 months or after 3 months i have to pay 360$?
You seem completely clueless about all of this - the phones are sold out in most major cities in Canada (aka no longer available), so I'd suggest either passing on this deal because you can't seem to understand anyone's answers OR have the ability to do basic research yourself before asking.

Use an eBay Bell prepaid SIM to port.

this is what happens to phone manufacturers outside of google and apple. both of these are primarily software companies and have been building software for decades. google is getting a slight upperhand because they've been doing AI forever now.

these korean/chinese companies are primarily hardware focused. and although they always tend to lead with packing in as much hardware as possible, they are shite at the software part. huawei has arguably the best camera hardware in their phones but they're utter garbage because they can't do proper software post-processing for shit.

camera hardware has basically reached its limit due to just having to be physically small enough to fit in a thin phone. software is the main thing thats differentiating camera quality now. thats just an edge google and apple have over their competitors.
i don't quite agree apple software is on par with google. they had to put several cameras to be on par with Google. Pixels cams software is top in the industry, the rest is garbage. pixel 3 isn't selling well at all, aside of their cam, they have nothing good, especially their design.

i heard the s10 i going to be crazy.

Managed to get a s9 from Park Royal in West Vancouver today. Brought an old Blackberry z30 in to get a $50 gift card as well. I'm staying on Koodo (been customer for years) and so won't be cancelling anything. Best deal I have ever gotten on a phone, and I got an essential phone last year for $210 last year and $160 on a LG G5 the year before (i had positive tab balance to use at the time).

$360 (Tab) + $35 (Activation fee) - $150 (Mastercard Gift cards) - $50 (Trade-in) = $195 all-in

I did mine with bell. Went to bell store today and asked for prepaid sim, paid 10+tax. You can also get the same sim from ebay for $1 but i didnt want to wait.

For those converting BB GC to Visa prepaid, is there a $150 denomination available at Best Buy?
Yes, and you have to pay $6.50 + tax for activation at the cashier.

The BB rep told me Koodo will often waive the activation fee if you call and ask them to.

Yup $150 denomination is available, however it was limited at the BB I went to. There were two remaining when I left the store.

So Wow gives you a gift card and not a visa card? What will you do with the $50 credit + $150gc? What do they sell there?

Why do i have a feeling LarenceX73471 is the same person as RajnikantP32453 lol. same guy who asked if he can return the phone and keep the gift card.

What was your plan before and what is your plan after?
I moved from Videotron.
Also someone else said that 200$ for the iPhone X was a Quebec price only.

You are misleading .. your net cost will be around $840 in case u cancel same day.. $400 upfront plus $480 tab +$35+tax minus your $200 gift card
I'm a little bit late to answer but I paid 200$ upfront not 400$.
