If you’re looking for an iPhone upgrade and you’re within service areas of Freedom Mobile, the company has brought back their $0 iPhone 8 offer on contract, which requires a $50 minimum voice and data plan, plus a $15/month MyTab Boost. This offer was re-introduced on Sunday and expires on January 16, 2018, as spotted by RFD.
This iPhone 8 for $0 on contract was offered during the holidays but Freedom Mobile has brought it back in 2018, which surely should see a response soon from the Big 3. With the MyTab Boost, you’re paying $360 for an iPhone 8 ($15 x 24), saving you $569 off the outright price of $929.
While Freedom Mobile advertises this iPhone 8 promo with the $50/month Big Gig plan with 10GB of data, plus a $15/month MyTab Boost for 24 months, this plan does not include any voice minutes. Rather, incoming calls are free, but outgoing to Canada/USA costs $0.05/minute. Also you’re limited to 250MB data in Away zones, while incoming calls are billed at $0.05/minute as well.
But there’s still hope, as Freedom has their ‘Everywhere Canada 50’ plan for $50/month and 5GB data, but comes with unlimited Canada/USA talk and unlimited global text. This plan may be better if you need to talk more, but you ‘only’ have 5GB of data and you can also get it with your $0 iPhone 8.
Also, if Freedom Mobile brings back recent Friends & Family 35% off codes, these may be applicable to this iPhone 8 promo.
Freedom Mobile’s LTE network is quickly growing and improving, and discussion within the RFD thread indicates more positive network feedback, compared to before.
Shaw’s wireless carrier officially launched iPhone sales in early December, pricing iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus for $0 on contract, a vast discount compared to Rogers, Telus and Bell.
