maybe it is different in Canada... you can bring your own phone, and you get a lower rate... but eg on my carrier, the rates are discounted by about $10/m if you do so, vs getting a 2 year term, where you might get a $100 credit to start (negative cost phone)... then if the phone breaks after 2 years, it is paid for, whereas if you had bought the phone directly, you would need to replace it (and have saved about $140 to do so)... so maybe that is not a bad way to go but it is fairly similar depending what deals are available at the time. The phones are pretty ridiculously subsidized here I think... and a basic flip phone is much less so because they are in low demand so I think that is why cost is comparable... may vary from carrier to carrier also.
Judge Judy is probably about right ruling $600 for breaking some guy's iphone maliciously... but apple products are at the higher end of the price scale (whether or not they are actually worth that)...
