Big price increases coming to Bell hardware. GS3 going up $60.
*Edit* Pricing sheet has just been pulled. Guess I don't need to line up now.
I just got word that Bell is increasing their pricing on many of their phones:
Motorola Atrix HD LTE $49.99 -> $79.95
Motorola RAZR V $0 -> $29.95
Blackberry Bold 9900 $49.95 -> $99.95
Samsung Galaxy Note $49.95 -> $99.95
Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE $0 -> $49.95
Samsung Galaxy S III 16GB $99.95 -> $159.95
Samsung Galaxy S III 32GB $149.95 -> $209.95
LG Optimus L5 $0 -> $49.95 (voice contract)
Motorola Motoluxe $0 -> $59.95 (voice)
I'm just speculating here, but it maybe due to iPhone shortages - maybe they're taking advantage of customers who want to upgrade to an iPhone, but can't. Maybe they'll impulse buy something else. This may also be Bell getting back some of the $50 credit's they're giving away with activation of a new Smartphone.
Guess Bell just wants to take advantage of the stampede of customers running to their stores. Who wants to go line up with me?
