NCIX offering free Bell Samsung Galaxy S III with three year contract; phone launches Wednesday
forced a one week delay. The word is that Bell has started receiving shipments of the phone and that Best Buy Canada, which had halted the acceptance of pre-orders a few days ago, has resumed taking reservations for the Samsung Galaxy S III. While other Canadian carriers are asking $99.95 to $159.99 for the phone with a three-year pact, carefully weighing the available deals, we'd say getting the phone for free with the same three-year contract would be the better offer for the average consumer. For those living Stateside, this deal is the best enticement for slipping across the border since the 1960s.
We should add that the deal is available for in store purchases only, and that NCIX has a very limited quantity of phones.

Once my Sprint contract expires, I'd like to do the month-to-month plan with Verizon so I don't have to stay locked into a contract.
Point is, 3 years is ridiculous. I'd rather pay full price for the phone any day.

Welcome to Canada, where the people are okay with being taken to the poorhouse by their own countrymen. Well, that and there is no such thing as consumer protection here, and the government is in bed with industry... WIN-WIN combination!

The article says that if you sign on for a 3 year contract, you'd be missing out on the Galaxy S IV, V, & VI. Not true. You'd be getting off contract around when the VI comes out. Either way, feels like way too long to me.
