Agreed. Dude takes the time to calculate 10% off each plan, but doesn't take the time to check details on their website.
My Zoomer Wireless cell phone plan:
$36 monthly, 3GB Rogers LTE data, 400 Canada-wide min, Unlimited text
$50 referral bonus, and free Samsung J3 cell phone

CITYFONE is owned by Rogers, not Zoomer.

Give the chap a break. Maybe too much time was spent on college leaving no time for other things. :-)

Yeah, I barely have much time these days. I even opted to invest in only 1 company because I can't keep up with multiple companies' annual reports.

But I had all the time in the world back 13 years ago when I was in College.

Zoomer themselves is not owned by Roger, but they're operated by Cityfone and reselling Cityfone services, and Cityfone is owned by Roger.

I think so because of the current Big 3 promotions. YMMV
The trend is more data at lower monthly cost.
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.

This is delving back in the thread a bit now, but I thought I would offer a couple of comments in follow up to the suggestion below. I did end up getting a Zoomer plan for my wife, but the FPL thing did not work out for us, because we are in rural BC. They could not port my old landline number to FPL, nor could they provide a local number (all BC numbers offered are in the lower mainland), and most of my local area was not even on their free calling list. So FPL is probably great if you are in a larger centre, but not so great out here in the sticks! In the end we just ported the landline number to the Zoomer phone, which was painless. In fact, the Zoomer CSRs were great all around.

I am now experimenting with TextMeUp for international calling. They give you one free number (from Vancouver/Victoria in BC, which is fine for this purpose), and I can earn free calling credits by tapping through some videos, which is easy to do with the volume down while watching Netflix or something (they do seem to cap it at 40 credits per day, which is 40 minutes of calling, which is more than I use). The only concerns I have so far are that: (a) they sure bombard you with ads, and charge $5.99/month to get rid of them; and (b) they will expire the number if inactive for 15 days, but say they will notify first, so we'll see how that goes.

For comparison, I also looked into TextNow, which has fewer ads, also allows you to earn credits, but at a slower rate, and they expire the numbers faster (3-5 days); and Fongo, which too has fewer ads, although does not seem to have free credits, but won't expire the number for 90 days.

Anyway, what we ended up doing was not exactly what was suggested, but it put me on this path, so thanks!

Few years ago, I was trying to find a cheap way to keep my home phone number. I decided to use freephoneline(FPL). I spent $25 for an used ATA box, $50 for FPL file(costs more now) and $25 to port my home number to FPL. After the initial $100 spending, I don't have monthly charge. Free unlimited calling to most Canadian cities.

Although the original intention was to keep the home phone number, now it being used for cheap calls to USA and oversea. All of us have Zoomer mobile plan, if we need to call USA, we use home phone or Fongo app on our smartphone.

I like the A5 a lot, *except* for the camera. I get a lot of blurry pictures.

Sorry, but do you know where I can double check (not that I don't believe you - I just want to really make sure)? Thanks!
why don't you just call Zoomer and ask.
That will answer your question.

Be aware that the A5 has a fixed focus front camera, meaning anything past 1meter will be blurry

Also you can get the A5 for $0 if you sign up with Fido's $40 5Gb plan, not everyone could get that plan but just letting you know.
