I'm still using an iPhone 4 (32 GB) with Bell Mobility in Canada. Since I've gotten it, I haven't really paid attention to iPhone prices in Canada or the mobile provider contracts. When I got my iPhone 4, with a 3-year contract, I paid $150 up front for the phone with a loyalty discount. This was the top-of-the-line phone when it came out. My monthly contract was $52/month with tons of daytime minutes, voicemail, and 500 MB of data. I'm feeling the urge for a new phone and and so I decided to check out the iPhone 6s (64 GB) at Bell Mobility. With a 2-year plan, the iPhone 6s is $529! WTF? And not only that, but you cannot have a monthly plan of less than $70/month. Again, WTF? What happened? What has caused such a massive price jump in phones and phone plans in Canada?
