I checked out specs for the J3 and the E5. The E5 does look better. Thanks.

I got the Galaxy S7 for $140 via Koodo (i.e. they offered gift cards to offset against the tab). Though the S9 is bit expensive, the similar S8 (which looks like the S9 lol) would probably be $140 come Black Friday. Keep an eye on future RFD threads in a couple weeks-it'll pop up
I would love more information on how you did that. That would be amazing if I could snag an S8 for him as his Christmas present. Thank you for letting me know about it.

If I remember correctly, free Zoomer to Zoomer is included in all plans.
BTW, the cheapest Zoomer plan is $10 plan. You have to ask for it if you are not on your 2 year contract. You can use it when you are go on a long vacation around the world.
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.
Public Mobile $36 5GB, $12 250MB, 2x $6 50min/50text, Fido $5 4GB data only plan with a free tablet,
Zoomer $36 loyalty 4GB plan, $0 FPL home phone. Have a better and better day!

My kid had an intern job oversea. I asked Zoomer to switch her to a cheaper plan. Zoomer rep switched to the $10 with 30 minutes anytime plan, no outgoing texts, no voicemail, no charge to receive text message. That is exactly what I want. I don't want my kid's friends to eat up the 30 minutes by leaving voicemail.

I took a closer look at the invoice. It is called Anytime 30. There was 5 incoming text messages and was no charge. There is no 10% discount for the $10 plan.

Now that number is back in my family plan.

- You cannot switch to this $10 plan while you are on contract unless you want to pay off your device balance.

Keep in mind PM is BYOD...so over 24 months, that extra GB will cost you $4x24=$96, plus resell value of the J3 or E5 Play, we are looking at another $100-120 minimum.
That's roughly $8-9 extra per month

In reality, Zoomer's $36 plan net cost is closer to $31-32 if you factor in the free phone

For someone that will be using the phone, is the A5 or LG Q6 a better choice?
When your mind says give up, hope whispers "one more try"
