cell phone and data plans

Recommended Posts

Soooo sick of my providers over the last few years. I live in Canada and only need service for such. Any one care to recommend a great one. Data is what I really want. Third world countries have way better plans than we do in Canada. Such a rip off. 

Cheers

Saskatchewan and Manitoba have much better prices on cellular phone plans. I am in Alberta and pay significantly more monthly. You'll end up with an out of province number but most plans are free nationwide calling anyway. I've considered it but can't because of work.

I switched to Koodo in October and pay a little over 1/3 of what I was giving to Telus every month. I've yet to go anywhere where I haven't had service. This includes Canada, USA and Cuba.

$60/ month.  10GB data  most carriers offered this deal this Dec, not sure if they still are

To add to that , I owned my own phone.  I was Telus, but switched to Koodoo (owned by Telus, same network) to get this deal.  I think it’s over but if you own your phone I would get hold of the loyalty department of whoever you are with and start wheeling and dealing.  Hit every kiosk in the mall.

I use Freedom Mobile, formerly Wind Mobile, here in Vancouver, and started with them about 5 years ago.

Pros. Unlimited Talk, Unlimited Text, Unlimited Data, province wide  for 36.73 per month

          Slowly switching over to LTE from 3g

Cons. Small coverage areas limited to major and medium sized cities.

           My plan was a special offer, not sure if is still available.

{No contract}, but if you buy a phone through them, at a discount, they put you on a two year payment plan and if you leave early you have to pay for the remaining discounted amount owing, plus the remaining discount you would have received.  

All in all, the best deal for me I could find at the time.
