Any updates? My contract ends soon. I was offered a Samsung S3 for $19 through retentions. Would like a wicked plan before I sign up for another 3 years.

I just picked up the S3 for 0$ just talking to the phone guy about an upgrade. Only have to pay 7$ because of tax!

Hoping to pick-up the super pack that includes 6gigs of Data for 60$ and also get our discount for 15$ because they didn't tell me my plan would lose the savings (what the rogers guy told me to do). At the moment, I'm pretty happy with rogers.

Had my BB Curve for almost 3 years now and only have been paying 35$ taxes in.

Wind blows i had it due to the so called sick plans but what's the point of unlimited calling and data if every call u make sounds like shit and calls often drop, an god forbid you go past east Scarborough. Wind Is a wast of money..

Your plan is like $100 a month. Mine will be half of that. I just have to talk with retention and get the deal done once my new phone arrives next week.

-Gave away rogers retention plan (for free, wasn't that great)
-Signed up for Virgin 5$ flex data
up to 10MB is 5$
up to 250MB is 15$
up to 5GB is 35$
Resets automatically every month. No activation fee, no contract, can cancel anytime with 30 days notice.

So far:
-Put sim in phone, worked immediately after sync (2 min)
-APN settings had to be manually fixed (super easy)
-Push works
-the virgin(Bell) network here in alberta is much faster

Next:
Get heywire (free text & MMS) working (unfortunately, its on IOS4 which i dont want to run, will probably cave)
Get canadian number for heywire (2$ a month, includes unlimited texting to canada/usa/china)
Finalize grooveshark settings for voip.ms
possibly buy toronto voip.ms number for DID (1$ month)

I have never used more than 250mb data, and i do not use my cell phone for voice, so voip useage should be minimal. I'm going to have both my landline and cell line on simultaneous ring, so phone will never be used at home. (Even if i did use it @ home it would use wifi. 3G works as a fallback for wifi without dropping the call, but it will never switch back over to wifi after being on 3G.


I saved 500$ a month by telling rogers to go **** themselves. If you're mad, look forward to my upcoming post in the insurance thread.

Edit:
Other observations

The virgin sim card does have a phone number attached to it. It can place outbound calls. Have not tried inbound or texting, expect both to work. I'd like be charged/discovered if i use that a lot (virgin could check which device i'm using by running my IMEI) so i dont plan on ****ing with it. Nice knowing in an emergency i can still use GSM cellular. Also, i set up SBSettings to hide the phone, contacts and messaging app to prevent accidental use.
bringing back thread .. updates?

i'm still on this plan.

to be frank i'll probably change back, my usage needs have changed.


virgin has a plan that's more or less unlimited calling and texting plus a gig of data for 50$ (45$ if you bring your own device) with additional data at 10gb.

i'lll prolly do that.
