Considering how much we are gouged by the major carriers, I wouldn't blame them. Not an iPhone fan by any stretch, but with 5S around the corner, this doesn't look that great. Yeah, yeah, I know, there will always be something newer, but when you're about to lock yourself up for 2+ years, might as well get the latest heading into it.

All true but not at all relevant to the extreme costs for wireless in Canada. There is one reason and it is simple. It doesn't require any excuses about low population density, etc. Canadian wireless carriers are the most profitable in the world. That's it. Simple. That's why we pay more.LostInTruth wrote: ↑^^ Prices have dropped significantly and a lot of progress has been made to the networks. People will not care until they pay peanuts for cell service. With such a small population, you have to make up the cost somehow, it takes money to build things and employee people, and maintain equipment, and appease investors, etc etc

I think it must be. Unless Target somehow made a special deal with both Rogers and Bell. On the otherhand, if it is a typo and it is $200 on a 3 year, then they are selling it for $20 more than both of those carriers are, so it is actually a very cold, cold deal.

With Bell, I was told by the brick-and-mortar sales person that on a 3 year contract, that I would be able to do a hardware upgrade in 24 months as long as I signed up for another 3 year term. Sometime later, they yanked that and changed it to 30 months. At least for Bell, nowhere in the contract terms did it state that I was eligible for a hardware upgrade in 24 months. It's that Bell at that time was routinely allowing for an upgrade in 24 months. They pulled that because the cost of the 'Super Smartphones' were so expensive and they supposedly couldn't afford it anymore.

Only if you are on a corporate account. Otherwise, it's been a long time since HUPs were allowed at 24 months.
