Finally, instead of the stupid phone (my apologies to those who got Acer Liquid, I myself got cheapo phones from Speakout in the past), something most their clients can use!

My Speakout credit expires in about a week and I've got about $10 left. I use a little over $100 a year but Speakout just increased text messaging cost to $0.15 each. I think I'm switching to Petrocan Anytime that charges $0.10 each.

But they reduced monthly unlimited texting from $15 to $10.

Totally agree with you here! Been stretching my balance for the past 3 weeks. Have like $8 left and waiting for this $25 bonus promo to be back. Thank God!

DualSim means its a micro SIM that includes an optional adapter that can convert the SIM to standard size as well.

A dualSIM card allows you to pop out the normal sized SIM, or a smaller microSIM (from the normal sized SIM)

Basically, you can select what size you need for your phone. I save the extra plastic bits when using a microSIM in case I need to use the SIM in another phone that requires the larger SIM (ie use it like a size adapter)

Yeah. Your usage is enough to make it worthwhile looking at other options.

Speakout is best for people using less than $150 per year.

Hmmm. I hadn't noticed that. Decisions, decisions.

I think I may still switch to PetroCan since PetroCan gift cards are available at discounted rates several times a year (through various stores)

Yeah. Brands like Apple that adopt their own non-standard hardware are always going to be a PITA

No, it means you have to cut the SIM down to nano size without damaging it (or replace your expensive iToy with a real phone ;) )

Yep, usually this promotion runs in their stores as well. I got mine this morning at a store, just had to wait while they were figuring out how to ring the SIMs on the register.

Why?

It's not just a 911 fee. Think of it as an account maintenance charge for keeping your account and phone number available so you can use it in "emergencies."

Do you think it's reasonable for SO to make at least $15/year off someone who makes no or few phone calls?

Do you think that similar fees aren't buried in the $30 to $100/month plan charges that other people pay to the other telcos?

Rogers only charge $0.75 a month, although you need to top up at $100 to get a 365 day expiry.

In 7-11 SO's case they get cell service via an MVNO, ztar mobile, who in turn gets it from Robbers. So there are three levels of corporations who need to make a profit rather than just one. I don't like paying that $15/year either but I'm also a realist; these folks have to make a profit even from people who get an "emergency" phone on which they might make zero or only a few chargeable calls a year.

When did they change the unlimited texting back to $10 (from $15)?

Also just noticed that the $20 value plan includes unlimited US texting and long distance calling is $0.02/min with $2 add-on. Too bad they don't have US data...I'd be able to get rid my US SIM [T-Mobile/Roam Mobility SIM]
We're all bozos on the bus until we find a way to express ourselves...

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!
