Bottom line is that nobody is going to give you a $500 smart phone for nothing while you pay only for a cheapo voice plan. They do the math too.

The phone costs $500. Or a hell of a lot more if you lock yourself in to the subsidy plan with the bogus $0. It ain't $0.
$0 HTC EVO 3D with voice and data (paying for data cancellation, according to Rogers, max DECF is $100 and many people have told me you can still keep the phone for the subsidized price):

$32.35/month x 36 months = $1164.60
Data Early Cancellation Fee = $100
TOTAL = $1264.60


Buying a smartphone without a contract:

HTC EVO 3D = $549.99
$32.35/month x 36 months = $1164.60
TOTAL = $1714.59


Please let me know if I'm wrong. I'm not here to challenge you or anything.....
