Nice, wife has been on the text a lot $15 plan since last year... 100 minutes, as opposed to $20. Went to sign someone up earlier, and the deal was much more, will let them know about this one now.

I can't explain it and I am not going to complain but have not been charged the 911 fee yet... total of the monthly bill is $16.95, with HST. People in the last thread didn't believe me, but the bill has always been that...

nice find. i'm trying to get the most minutes on a plan without data for sub-$30.
I'm lucky to have 2 Fido lines with unlimited talk for $21.50, but I can't get another one of those unfortunately.

Could've just got Fido's $25 unlimited Canada-wide calling & international text, but too late now.
Thanks for the upvote! 😁

Im sorry, and I dont mean to be rude, but how do you live with no data?
Even if you have wi-fi at your work and home...?
Even a minimal amount of like 200 mb i feel is necessary... otherwise, and im assuming most people would have a smartphone at this point, why get a smartphone...?

I have a dual SIM phone. $15 for 100 mins and unlimited texting from Petro on one SIM, 3GB LTE data from Fido on another.

Aside from wind or similar carriers, I don't think you can find anything comparable for 30+tax a month.

Depends on your life stye... Almost anywhere indoors has wi-fi. If I'm outside I'm either driving or busy doing an outdoor activity etc. Podcasts/music I preload onto my phone. Data is definitely more convenient but I do not need to be connected to social media 24/7 so it's not worth the cost for me.

It's not rude, it's just a bit of a stupid question. Why? Because all it takes is a few minutes of thought to figure out the reasons why. I get that you don't intend to be rude, and just want to ask a question, but it comes off as inconsiderate when one could figure out the answer just by putting themselves in different shoes.

Here, i'll show you how silly your post seems. You assume correctly when you say most have a smart phone, and you acknowledge that home and work usually have WiFi: yet you still ask, for those who don't have data, "why get a smartphone"... You answered one of the biggest reasons yourself: there's still Wifi.

Other than that, as the other users have said: people have a life. We don't need to be checking email and media constantly, especially when it can just wait for home. Music can be stored, rather than streamed. Google maps instructions, after loading with Wifi, can continue to function once connection is lost. Not to mention almost every 5 minutes there's a place offering Wifi.

Ummm, no. There are PLENTY of times when it's critical to have data and you're not at the mall - some people don't call that "having a life"....shocking, I know. Do you really think social media is the main reason why everyone has a smartphone? All it takes is a few minutes of thought to figure out the reasons why you're being a dink.

Lol, if it's "critical" then a phone call or text would probably be an adequate replacement.
