Getting Rogers pay-per-use plan, any suggestions?
I need thsi cell phone for emergency purposes only.
Any suggestions to minimise the cost?
Are there any additional costs/fine prints (other than 911 fees) that I should be aware of?

PCMOBILITY is bell network and speakout/petro canadamobility is ROGERS network( can use rogers locked phones on it )

so t his a month to month plan..I Dont think I will using $20 per month...I am more like a $100 usage for the year user.onlineharvest wrote: ↑Jan 4th, 2013 11:23 amI don't know if they still offer it, but my wife is on their $20MY5 PAYG plan. For her its beautiful, as she can talk and text to basically every number she needs.
Your best bet is to determine what your needs are, and compare other low cost options that theguyz suggested.

yes, this is a M2M plan. Great if you plan to talk and text to your hearts delight with 5 numbers. Not a good choice if you only want to spend $100 for the year. There are others more suitable for you, with prepaid airtime with a year expiry. Not familiar with any specific plans though

Early Evennings + Weekends & Unlimited Texting only comes with the Socialite 40 plan. Other plans differ in unlimited texting and unlimited calling times. Nonetheless, rogers booth sales people always disappoint me.bsobaid wrote: ↑Jan 6th, 2013 1:33 pmyeah, so I was in mall yesterday and saw bestbuy mobile. I dropped by and inquired about getting my phone activated by bestbuy for the $100 365 days expiry pay as you go top up. The guy said all pay as you go credits expire on monthly basis.
So I thought the guy does not know what he is talking about or best buy wont activate my phone if I am not getting a monthly plan from them. Either way, I thought it is too risky to get it activated from them. I then saw a Rogers booth right across the shop, so I went there and the guy said yes the 365 days expiry pay as you go exist and I can get the pay as you go top up card from bestbuy if I want to use my gift card but he said the early evening and weekend option or unlimited sms option does not come with the pay as you go plan.
So now I know, both best buy mobile associates and rogers booth sales people have no clue what they are talking about.
btw, I bought screen protector from bestbuy mobile for samsung s2x. He said there will be $5 extra to stick it on the cell phone screen, wondering it is normal??
