About to call and cancel.. just signed up today. I haven't even plugged the SIM into the phone. What can I say to skirt the activation fee?

Which carrier is the easiest to do it with, PM?
Sorry, I've not done it myself. Only aware that this can be done online if we have the SIM number. Should be straight forward with any carrier though.

Why exactly is the deal so hot? Most people are just getting the phone and the cheapest plan to go along with it , only to cancel the contract a few days later, sell the phone privately and get a $150 gift card for their trouble?

Objectively speaking, that's precisely why they're doing it. Well, most of them.

You think most people would be doing this to break even?
You could probably sell the phone on kijiji easily for $550. You can do the math.

A lot of people are doing it as upgrades on their existing plans...to keep the phone for use. The s9 deal is actually solid, Iphone 8 not so much since it's a whole generation older than s9, but it's the best bang for buck for iOS

If apple wasn't so freaking cocky the Iphone xr would have been on sale, but their arrogance will kill the, some day, kind of like blackberry.

Xr is selling awfully

I'm already with koodo and sticking with them. 150 gift card and 150 profit ( sold for $600). So $300 "for our trouble"

you need to keep the plan at least 90 days or koodo is going to come after you for a penalty fee. (which is 100's of dollars)
guy at wow mobile was insistent I don't cancel or even try to pay off the tab within 90 days or I'd regret it.

Editing*
This might not be true supposedly... but it's what a sales guy specifically told me when signing up. YMMV.

chinook centre near the microsoft store on the 2nd floor.
To be clear, this is the samsung A8. not the S9.
You really should go back and edit your previous post. This entire thread is about the S9 and iPhone 8. Nobody is talking about the A8.

How are you guys calling into Koodo? I keep getting a “schedule callback” automated voice mail. I want to talk to someone today if possible.

This is 100% completely bogus. Do everyone a favor and delete your post. It's just complete fud.

That is simply not true and the salesguy was wanting his commission. Don't ask me why Koodo allows you to cancel early, but they do, and it is on the level.
