I'll buy from us no problem, but will I have to pay tax at the door after the shipping? I hate that.

Plus I don't know is fine they convert or not or if I'll just see a big surprise on my statement..

Best deal is from best buy , new activations only, 2 yr brings price down to 299.

I think if you upgrade though it's 399. Read the details to be sure.

Meh it alright ... I saw $199 on bestbuy site ... I don't get the difference between the $399

I was looking to change my phone i am with rogers and looking for an s8 is this a decent deal
There's only one factor to ever consider, and that's the contract. In the contract you pay for the phone over the course of the contract...so it's like installments rather than buyout. So at 0$ if that works for you is good if you don't care of the contract..but long term you're spending more than. Buying out the phone

Koodo is the cheapest. Other carriers will charge the full retail price on Tab, while Koodo will only put $504 on Tab Large.

https://www.koodomobile.com/phones/samsung-galaxy-s8 $504 for S8
https://www.koodomobile.com/phones/sams ... xy-s8-plus $704 for S8+
https://www.koodomobile.com/phones/sams ... axy-note-8 $1004 for Note8.

This means even if you don't plan to use Koodo, you can sign a 2 year contract, pay the amount, then cancel your service/contract. Details at http://forums.redflagdeals.com/koodo-es ... 0-2146352/

Now you have to be comfy with call drops and slower internet speeds.

Koodo is a sub-brand of Telus so it uses the same network as Telus. Telus and Bell share networks so the three will be the same (as will Public Mobile and Virgin).
Fido is a sub-brand of Rogers so those two networks are the same.

You can cancel the Koodo Tab, pay it off as noted above, and use it with Rogers or Fido if you live in an area where the Rogers network is better than Telus/Bell.

BB had $250 GC $0 S8 on premium + plan, or $50 GC if you want to go on premium plan.
I thought it was a fantastic deal

Didn't realize koodo was telus
I use fido. But bell and rogers don't usually use the same frequency..unless it's unlocked?

The phones can be unlocked for free now if locked, but iirc the S8 is unlocked or locks to the first provider's SIM you put in it. That's unrelated to the frequencies the phone supports though. Most phones that are sold in North America will support the Big 3 networks. You can check to make sure here: https://willmyphonework.net/

It's usually more of an issue when you're buying international phones (often comes up with Xiaomi phones).
