Which Carrier has the Best iPhone 6s plans?


WhistleOut
28 September 2015

It’s iPhone 6s season, and a lot of people are going to be looking for new phone plans. You’ve probably decided which iPhone model you want, but which carrier has the best plans?

We've compiled a list covering plans from each major carrier. To view them in more detail, be sure to click the links.

We've chosen to compare plan pricing for subsidized iPhones on 2-year plans. For example, an iPhone 6s with 16GB retails for $899, but on a subsidized contract may only cost you around $400 up-front.

We're also only comparing plans with Canada-wide minutes, as opposed to local calls.

Note: Plan pricing differs in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Quebec. To view these plans, feel free to follow the phone links and select your province in the tab at the top of the screen.

Rogers

Rogers has the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus available up-front, subsidized on a contract, and (for the first time) on a Tab.

Unfortunately, at the time of this guide's publication, none of the specific plan pricing is actually available online. We've grabbed the on-plan subsidized phone prices, which are available to view, and paired them with what will most likely be the plan prices.

Due to the recent changes to Roger's website - as well as the lack of iPhone 6s plans available for viewing - this may prove inaccurate. We'll have a better idea once the plans actually go live.

These plan prices are based on the pairing of Roger's own advertised upfront cost for the new iPhone 6s range on a 2-year contract; paired with the per-month pricing of Rogers plans for a Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

Telus

The Telus plan model lets you mix and match your calling and data plans. There are three calling options: 300 local daytime minutes ($50 per month), Unlimited local calling ($55 per month), and Unlimited nationwide calling ($60 per month).

For the sake of simplicity, we went with the Unlimited nationwide calling option and paired it with a variety of data plans.

Telus also has a 10GB data plan for $85 per month. With the $60 Unlimited Canada-wide calling option, that would come to a total of $145 per month plus the upfront cost of a new iPhone.

Add an extra $10 upfront for the initial Telus SIM card fee.

Bell

Bell also has three calling packs, to which you can attach data. 300 local anytime minutes ($50), Unlimited local calling ($55), and Unlimited nationwide calling ($60). Once again we're sticking with the unlimited option.

Bell has two larger data plans: a 10GB for $85 ($145 with the nationwide call pack), and 15GB for $100 ($160 with the calls).

Add an extra $15 upfront for the initial Bell SIM connection charge.

Koodo Mobile

Koodo has both the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus available on Tabs or for outright purchase, although not every storage model. For the iPhone 6s both the 16GB and 64 storage options are available; the iPhone 6s Plus can be grabbed as only the 16GB variant.

A Koodo Tab means you pay part of the cost of the phone upfront, after which you pay a monthly fee to work off the balance. The total paid off works out to roughly the retail price for each model of iPhone, give or take a few dollars.

This is the only part of the service for which you're actually locked in to a contract. Koodo's actual service plans all operate on a monthly basis, so you're free to up and leave carrier whenever you please.

Of course, you can expect any iPhone bought through Koodo to be locked to its network, but Koodo's own iPhone FAQ page currently assures that it will only cost $35 to unlock the phone.

All Koodo plans feature Canada-wide minutes.

Many of Koodo's options actually turn out a bit cheaper than the other carriers. On Bell, it would run you $110 per month for a 16GB iPhone 6s with 5GB of data; on Koodo it's $14 less than that.

A 500MB plan on Rogers with a 64GB 6s is $80 per month, on Koodo it's just $61.

The comparisons against the major 3 telcos continue along this vein. Considering that up-front costs are similar, this is good news if you get Koodo reception in your area.

Koodo operates on the Telus network. If you can get Telus, it's a pretty good chance you'll be fine with Koodo.
