Related, where are people buying these outright?
With Telus, and was hoping to pick this up to try from Future Shop or Best Buy. However, they aren't selling outright. The one Rogers store I went to, same deal. In Calgary.
I prefer Future Shop or Best Buy because of the return policy. I am going to play with it as a wifi device for a few days, and not even activate it until I am sure I will keep it (as it will involve getting a Telus micro LTE sim). The limited experience I had with Rogers a decade ago made me vow never to deal with them, mainly because of their return policy which sealed the deal and I paid a large ECF to get away from that company.
I had no issues picking up the SGS2 at Bell launch last year outright from Best Buy, and ended up keeping it.
Think it depends on the FS or Best Buy.
I see them on newegg.ca for $640.
Cell phone history:

Does anyone here know if the Rogers version of the phone have support for GLONASS?
So is the month to month (buy outright) price $575.99?
"Like many other Qualcomm based devices, the HTC One X uses the gpsOneGen 8A with GLONASS GNSS system for location. It locks almost instantaneously indoors, and performs great."
As regards the outright price I did look and it is $624.99 - click on the phone and plan dropdown box and you will see the "phone only-no term" choice (remember outright is not month-to-month):
You don't, but you have to have 1 month of service, so likely that'll be more than the price delta from MTM to Outright.
Yup, and that may be possible, but is it worth the hassle for a $10-$20 max savings? I doubt it.
