Lolz @ your massive device balance. Glad to see you signed with Virgin Mobile :D

IMO, best deals since Black Friday on Flagships was likely the Pixel.

Including Black Friday, Huawei P10 for <$200 net on Virgin with FMF (BC/ON/QC), plus in my case personalized offer dropping it for <$100, or iPhone 6 (older flagship) for net ~$85 a piece for me on Koodo.

I'm ok with that device balance, I like the LG Phone not interested with P10 nor iPhone 6.

Paying $0 upfront for such a flagship on such a low subsidy tier is a good deal, assuming you're ok with the rate plan and you plan on riding it out for 2 yrs.

Most of us on RFD who go after phone deals look at a day 2 or day 91 cancellation. Not saying your deal is cold per se, but since you're on the hook for a massive device balance, next time you want a new phone, you'll likely resort to a shorter term churn in order to grab that phone for cheap-er than your device balance :lol:

I'm willing to finish my contract I've been with them for long time, so I have no problem taking higher device balance. I hope the G6 will finish his 2 yrs, if not kd games is always there for someone in need.

Interesting how the poll is saying the exact opposite of what I thought was a good deal. What are the chances? Face With Tears Of Joy

Pixel/XL is overpriced.


I missed out in the Essentials deal. It's what I voted for.
