Can't wait say I blame you. The Galaxy S2 is an awesome looking device but $600 instead of $200 is hard to argue with.

More than likely that will be on a 3 YEAR contract not to mention the difference in currency which isn't that different anyway. I think 1 Canadian dollar is about the same as 1.06 US. In any case, you will have to be their bitch for 3 years to get it at that price.

Not on SuperTab. 10% of my monthly bill will pay toward the SuperTab. Should I choose to leave in 2 years, I only have the remaining of the SuperTab to be paid off. No contract, no obligation.

What does that amount to? If after two years you cancel a three year contract from Bell you only have to pay of the remainder of the contract. $20/month up to $400 max for cancelling early. One year early would set you back $240.

For our American friends, should you decide to come up and grab one off contract, though FYI Bell won't be selling them off contract right away and it's unknown till when, it will cost you at least $665 USD and that is if you buy it in Alberta, all other provinces have much higher sales tax.

Full cost of the phone is $599.99
I paid 169.99 upfront on the SuperTab WITHOUT contract, which leave me with $430 on the tab.

My phone plan will be around $65 per month.

Of that $65, $6.50 will be going toward the tab per month.

Over 2 years, I would have contribute $156.00 so I will have $270 left. Of course, this is assuming that I'll keep the phone for 2 years. Chance are I might upgrade to Galaxy SIII or something equivalent in between already. If I plan to keep it longer, then the 3 years contract will worth it. Knowing myself, I will not :)

Yea the 669CAD price is steep, but I am trying to get out of my contract with Rogers and go month to month so I will have more leverage in my negotiations when my needs will change over time.

The Robelus cartel is making a killing on your 3 year renewals, they are just amortizing the cost over 3 years, like trying to pay off a mortgage over 25 years. The bites are smaller, but you end up paying way more for the phone than an outright purchase.

I am never going to mortgage myself to a phone company ever again.
