Nexus 5 Off Contract Mark-up
I sent a tweet to the Big 3 here in Canada (Telus, Rogers, Bell) asking why the Nexus 5 is 150$ more expensive off contract than buying it directly from the Google Play Store. Here is the response I got:
@JamieBarefoot Well, the device comes with all the settings for text, data,... already in it. Ready to go.— TELUS Support (@TELUSsupport) November 8, 2013
@JamieBarefoot It won't, you'll have to enter manually all the settings for the Picture messages and for data.— TELUS Support (@TELUSsupport) November 8, 2013
Does this make any sense?
Also thanks to Telus for being the only one to respond.
