Had you traded it in the US, you would have gotten $130 USD e-cert on Samsung.com and you could have bought this:
https://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/mobil ... 100csegus/

If you have EPP or perkspot, price would drop to $14.79 I believe.

They're well constructed and does fast charge the S10+ and quite reasonably priced after the discount.
130 e cert is only for ppl that preordered on samsung us so wouldn't matter

I did register two email accounts and the other rfd fellow and I did think about going the US route. My wife has no use for many accessories though and I missed the preorder, even with an EPP, thanks to the ebay seller's misrepresentation.

Has anyone got Protection Plan for their phone?
Rogers is charging $13 a month + $174 repair or $400 if replaced.(lost/stolen) - First screen repair is free.

I could use my Credit Card, (I checked Terms and Condition and IT does cover cell phones - TD Visa) however, if the phone is stolen or need repair, They *ONLY* cover up to the price I paid for the phone, which is $659 (price of the phone with plan).

What do you guys think? worth it?

that's a lot of money for nothing. you better be pretty certain you'll break your phone. like if you break one phone per year then this would be a good idea. rich people with a history of breaking their expensive purchases should get this, but then again, rich people can afford just a full repair and don't need the theoretical savings

Understandable, that's why the low key leader remains the S10e.

What is the reason for your return?

Mine was worth as my replacement is only $200 and I already replaced an xs max 512gb that I replaced. It was later recovered by the cops and returned to me so I have an extra itouch or a spare phone when I travel outside of North America now as it’s permanately blacklisted and u can’t remove it as you already claimed a phone

Well the replacement cost deepens on the price of your phone, for S10+ its Tier 5 device (price is between $1200 - $2300)
Monthly fee is :$13
Repair processing: $175
Replacement: $400.

I think its good to have for the first 6 month to 1 year, cuz think about it, after lets say a year,
if you claim for replacement, you have to pay $400 and ($13 x 12 months = $156) so total $556 to get a new S10+ in 1 year! I wonder how much the phone is going to cost in a years time!

bit the bullet today. s10e 8/256 for $530. telus canada-usa plan with 14gb for $98/monthly. not the best though. telus will ship the fone to me. i will be giving up my existing mtm old $70 6gb plan.
Well that was fast.

Ordered on evening of 18th on the Telus EPP website. Got an email this morning (20th) that has tracking #. When I check the tracking #, it showed that Purolator already tried to deliver to my door. So attempted delivery before I even got tracking # :facepalm: Checked my Telus app and sure enough, my plan got switched over today to the new one.

Got the S10E, returned it right away. S10 feels and looks way better. S10E is such a waste of money, might as well just buy a $300 budget phone. You try way too hard to justify your S10E purchase. Almost every single post in this thread you raved about the S10E. If both phones weren't from the same company I would have thought you were being paid for the advertising.

I have to concur. The S10E is an excellent phone, but, from a feature perspective, it doesn't really have anything to justify it's cost. About the only thing I can see is the ultrawide camera, it is a feature very dear to my heart, but that alone just doesn't 'do it' for me since there are FAR cheaper alternatives. The 855 doesn't really bring a 'real life' performance boost to regular users beyond what the 845 delivered.

The S10/10+ have the telephoto camera in addition to the UWA, plus the 'better looks' (not something I personally care about). There is a value for me in the third camera, and I can see myself one day going for that phone (perhaps), but right now, no chance, it's just too expensive.

Complain to retention, they might kickback a free month or throw-in other freebies. I have mixed success myself (Rogers).
