Is there no future shop or best buy or Walmart near you?

If you want to buy an iPhone online, you can check the Apple store website.
http://store.apple.com/us/iphone

Then bring an iPhone to Koodo .

Just something you might want to look into before you quit and spend all this money purchasing a new phone. What is the signal strength in your area, do you know other people in your area that have iPhones? And if they do do they have a problem picking up a signal and who is their mobile carrier.

The reason I bring this up is, in the spring I purchased a new Samsung Galaxy that cost over $500 and when I went over to Prince Edward Island and my cottage during the summer the Samsung would not pick up a signal and I know the iPhones will not pick up a signal there either. It would be very aggravating for you to spend all that money and then find out you have a hard time even using your phone.

Kirkland Lake has 4G HSPA coverage as per koodo map on their website. It probably runs off the bell network which is pretty decent up in Northern Ontario. If your current phone works fine you shouldn't have an issue I don't think.

oh wow you guys have been so helpful. and brought very valid points to mind. Thank you... Most people I know her have an iphone, I don't even know if its an iphone I want but my BB is always freezing and any of the really "cool" apps are not for BB, android,, maybe I would be just as well to buy an LG or something like that,,, that is cheaper. On that note, though, if I do buy an iphone or something like it from apple, do I just reg it with koodo and get then same plan, etc?
