Canada wide-data plan and iphone 5. Why do the Iphone plans suck?

why can't I use a Canada wide data plan to get the Iphone 5 for 180? your 60$ iphone plan is terrible in comparison to the great canada wide 60$ data plan.... *sad face*

That's the trade off when you decide to pay a cheaper price upfront.

Basically Koodo doesn't want to offer iPhone contracts, but they must in order to carry the iPhone. You have the option of getting the phone cheaper with a less enticing plan (as AlexiKrov stated). You also have the option of paying more for the phone upfront on the tab or outright and getting the better plan. The plans (designed this way or not) serve as a motivator to get the tab instead of a contract.
