    yeah, i dont think people fully realize

    omg its free as long as i get on a contract (which consists of you paying for the phone in monthly payments during the course of the contract), i just have to pay the tax on it!

    I tried having this conversation with some people at work and they just didn't give a . "It's included in the mobile phone plan." No... your bill would be 35-40 dollars less if you stopped financing phones through Verizon or whatever.

    Then I came across some people in their mid-twenties who are still on their parent's phone plan... so they really didn't give a . I got pissed at that point and had to stop talking about it.

    yeah, the kid walks into the store, gets the phone "free" but pays the sales tax... parents pick up the bill for next 2 years

    I switched companies a few months back and no longer got a company issued iPhone XR (which was going for $700 for 128GB). Bought an unlocked Oneplus 7 with 256GB of space for $480 (reimbursed for $200 of it). has Android 10 and is lightning fast...I'm good until 2022.

    Im currently on a contract but after that, no more contracts, Iíll but phone outright, the plans on 2 year agreements are steep.

    Robellus, the CRTC, etc

    People can say what they want on iPhones, but they have longevity, better update/support than Android and have better resale value

    People make fun of cricket but you canít beat 4 lines, unlimited data for $100, using ATT towers. And $100 is straight up $100, taxes included and no hidden fees.

    I had it for 4+ years and have only had 1 time where the service was out for about 6 hrs a couple years back. Other than that, the service has been really solid.

    I made fun of my sister for having it, but she insisted I give it a try. When my contract was up, I did and never looked back. I use my iphone 7.

    They just changed the pricing here.

    The cheapest phone plan with Bell and Roger is 90 dollars ( Low tier phones).

    Bell and Rogers now charge 55 dollars minimum for service with 5gb.

    Just two years ago that 90 plan was 40 and the now 115 plan was 60.

    What the is crtc doing?

    Canada must be one of the 5 most expensive countries in the world to have phone service if not the most expensive

    Caring about what smartphone you have. It'd be like caring about what cordless landline phone you had in the 90s. But I guess certain dumb es (i.e. teenagers) need to discard their current phone that works perfectly fine to get the latest thing that has 3 cameras.

    It's not even just the teenagers, look at all modern smartphone reviews. They literally spend 75% of the time looking a sample photo comparison, just for most people to compress and post them on social media or MMS/iMessage/Whatsapp .

    Never got the obsession with smartphone camera pixel wars.

    people who finance phones are ing re ed. every couple years i buy an unlocked phone on amazon and stick my SD card in it. i guarantee the re ed 16 year old kids and their 40 year old parents dont even utilize 95% of the the phones can actually do nowadays. if all youre going to do is be a got on snapchat and show your s on reddit, the do you need some high tech phone for?
    I go through ebay>paypal.

    Right now there's a Galaxy S10 + for $512 brand new, and you can get 6 months no interest from Paypal, AND you get to keep the phone. Best way to do things.

    The whole "why do you need a new phone?" line of reasoning is pretty stupid to have in this country. Why do we need any of the things we overspend on? Debt and fiscal irresponsibility is as American as living vicariously through social media.

    There's no point tbh

    You have legions of dumb ers spending over one thousand dollars on a phone to do basic you could do on a phone that costs 350.

    I still use galaxy s8, no issues. I give apple people an equally re ed look when they look confused why I don't have an apple.
