Alright, I'm going to walk over and get an iPhone today then. The main reason why I bother asking is that (in Canada at least), you can get an Android for free and plans for Androids are cheaper and less restrictive. As soon as you get an iPhone, plans offer less and cost more. it's all marketing, they do it because they can.
For $57, you get a free Android unlimited everything (data, long distance, texting, local calls etc)
For $67, you get a $179 iPhone 5, 1 gig data, no long distance, 1000 daytime minute limits
The only way around the plan limitations is to buy your iPhone at full price, then get a better plan with no free phone. LAME!
And those are the cheapest plans available in Canada that you can get an iPhone on.
So you see why I ask!!
