Still, if I am in the market for a budget WP7 phone, my choice is still the Nokia Lumia 710 for a mere $25 more outright from Rogers as it packs a way bettter processor, and more RAM.
Doubt that Koodo or Telus are getting any budget takers at these prices in comparison to Lumia 710 over at Rogers,Wind, Mobilicity.

Anyhow, the Lumia device that is targeted at the low cost market is now available at KoodoMobile (probably soon to Telus as well)
Only black is available at this time but the white version is coming soon.
This has the 800Mhz processor and it is priced at $200 outright or $50 on tab.
Frankly, at $200, I'd get the Lumia 710 outright for $50 more. It would be a decent deal at $150 but Telus continues to price Lumia phones at funny price points (i.e. 800 is more expensive that the 900???)
Note that due to the lower processor speed and lower RAM built in, there are some apps (games most likely) that you will not be able to install on the Lumia 610.
If you still insists on this phone, there's currently a $25 VISA gift card if you order online from koodomobile.ca

Some pricing as the black one:
3 yr: $29.99
Interesting time to upgrade as most of you should know by now that the current generation hardware will not get the goodness of Windows Phone 8. Current generation WP7 phones will only get upgrades to WP7.8 and at this time, we know WP7.8 is only getting the brand new start screen.
Will you get this nice looking phone given that you will not get WP8?
