Really, it's still available? Weird.
Just the information to verify that an account has the unlimited web browsing.

Ahh, that makes sense. Guess I misread.

If i wanted to buy one off an acquaintance, what is the best way to verify that it does come with this unlimited mobile browsing.

Can he just call the customer service to confirm?

He doesn't seem to have online access

A way to verify Is to try It on your phone and make sure EVERYTHING works.
No he cannot I don't think as It's a grandfathered plan and so they representative wouldn't know I don't think.
Online access to what?

PS: How much you getting It for?

When I sold mine we just called in together to put it under his name and so he could personally confirm options on the acct.

He confirmed that a senior was selling the pc account and that it did not have the unlimited web browsing. He knew it would've been valuable with that feature.

Wouldn't trying out the SIM first be the more important thing to do?
Umm, no. Just because data works doesn't mean it's unlimited. To verify the options you verify the options. Hence a call.

To necro an old horse. I just wanted to point out for those who have the PC UMB you can verify it if you have an android phone (or at least access to) and use the BCE Self Serve app. It's listed under features but takes a few tries to access since the app isn't the best.

If you try to use Speakout for VOIP I'd ask other ppl for their opinion since I thoguht VOIP stuff rely on low latency networks to work the best.

Hey guys,

I recently purchased the Lumia 920 and wondering:

1. The phone has internet sharing, anyone know if I use it, I'll get noticed and lose my unlimited UMB?
2. The phone says I'm on 4G, but I thought that wasn't possible?

1. It should. It's been a while for me, but I recall sharing worked for me, but only over wifi or USB, but I can't recall which one worked. That was with an iPhone 4.
2. 4G will show up for HSPA+, which PC would provide. LTE (also called 4G) will not be provided (AKAIK).

It still boggles my mind that people pay like a billion dollars for one of those SIMs, abuse it, and then cry foul when carriers eliminate or limit them.

Which is why I think Bell > PC Mobile because the latter is just a MVNO. :)

If the offer was for a Bell prepaid, I would be very interested.
