Canadians of TQC... Cell phone company recc's?

My contract with Bell expires next month. In fact, I'm calling them tomorrow to give them my 30 day cancellation notice.

I don't want to continue using them because I find them extremely expensive for what their plans offer and I'm looking to shrink my bills a bit.

Currently with them, I'm paying about $65/month for:
200 mins (I don't even talk on the phone that much so I've never gone over my minutes)
Unlimited evening/weekend
Unlimited text messaging (but not picture messaging)
500mb of data (that I never go over because I'm connected to wifi)
Voicemail and caller id

I'm looking at going with Koodo because their plans seem reasonable and I like that they have ones that include Canada wide calling because I have family in BC. I'm looking at the $30 Canada wide plan in particular. I also like that they offer flex data so I'd only pay for what I'd use.

I'm also looking at going with the Samsung Galaxy Ace II X. I've used Blackberries since '08 and I'm ready for a change. I considered an iPhone, but they only offer the 4 or 5 and the 4 won't run the upcoming OS and I'm not into paying $520 for the 5. I know two new iPhones were just announced today, but the Galaxy Ace II X is free which is much more appealing, lol.

Does anyone have any other recommendations as far as providers and things of that sort? I've looked around, but keep going back to Koodo ultimately.
