and now. if you take Galaxy S4 with price 375$ + $50 Smart Plan - Unlimited incoming and outgoing calls - Unlimited Canada-wide long distance - Unlimited text, picture and video messages from Canada to Canadian... . ( if you are Quebec)

while in Koodo. take Galaxy S4 you have to pay 550$. the same plan with Fido is 45$/ month.

So, in Fido, difference 5$/month x 24month = 120$ + 375$ phone = 495$. cheaper than Koodo

Not seeing data mentioned here.

For Quebec the 45$ koodo offering has 1gb of data (10$ per gb over) along with everything you mentioned. Tab medium takes the phone down to 250$ and adds only 5$ monthly.

So for 50$ you certainly make out well! And you actually get the phone 5$ cheaper if my math is right.

250$ phone
120$ tab contribution
Total phone cost= 370$

I'm using the costs you provided in your original post.

"while in Koodo. take Galaxy S4 you have to pay 550$. the same plan with Fido is 45$/ month. "

I didn't bother to look at what phone you were talking about. But that would explain why your numbers didn't look right.

the 550 plan and the 375 you're comparing aren't the same. The tab24 is more similar to a medium tab with koodo.

$700+ medium tab at $300 = $400.00 phone. If you wanted an unlmited plan its $50/month + a $5.00 contribution towards the tab. However, 15% of each of your bills versus fidos 4% goes towards paying off your tab. So 12.50 a month for a 24 month period equals $300.00. on a similar plan. A WHOPPING 25$ Savings.

Of course this is if you subsidize the phone. If you buy it outright (always the best idea) it's $700 for the phone with either company, but Koodo's plan is cheaper plus you get the No Tab discount of 10% so you're only paying $40.50 a month.

Exactly, Koodo allows you to put down and use as much as you please while FIDO you're obligated to opt in to that 375 price essentially forcing you into a 2 year agreement.
