For comparison, I went for a cheap, functional Android. I picked up an LG Optimus One from Koodo back in April...after taking into account the gift card I got, but also paying off the Koodo Tab, the thing cost me $100 (I'm sure it would be less now)...I got it unlocked and inserted a PC (Presidents Choice) Mobile SIM card...while their phone calls are pricey at 20c/min, what I really wanted it for was the data which is $10/month for 100MB or $25/month for 500MB.
I've bought two non-contract cell phones this year...both are now unlocked and I can't imagine being locked in by the big boys again!
