shame these tablet sims cant work in smartphones (so one can just have data only). From what i read one would have to have a tablet to activate the sim card then you could pull the sim and place it into your smartphone for data-only access. And for those who will inevitably ask why bother to get a smartphone only to get data-only: Portability and the potential for phone access if prices become reasonable (you know, like in non-monopoly, non-price-fixed competitive markets) or traveling in a different country and need a +voice sim on-the-go.

You can just sign up for Virgin Mobile's tablet plan (SIM Cards are free at VM), put it in your phone and it will work (worked for me). It'll be the same for every other provider, but the thing is some of those people at Kiosks/Stores might give you hard time if you say you don't have a tablet. I also bought a SIM Card from TELUS for $10, activated it online on a tablet plan, put the SIM in my phone and started using it without a problem; didn't even need to set a new APN. You'll be able to make calls, send/receive text messages, but it was $1/min last time I had that plan, and you can't add voice/texting add-ons, so it'll be very expensive.

Rogers used to have a Data plan for $50 dollars 10GB, I regret for not taking it. Now it's not available.

Do you know if I can convince them to add any kind of phone stuff on it or just not worth the hard time?

The virgin plan looks great. Too bad it doesn't include tethering.

I had virgin and i had fido and it worked just fine but for voice fongo is terrible unless you are in a good signal area. Even on hspa+ if i had less than 4 bars it was unusable it was so bad for voice. Also they keep updating their app and when they do they disable old versions so if you get important calls its an issue

I've been using the Bell tablet plan on my Nexus 4 for a couple of weeks. Seems to work great since I only use my phone for data and Fongo works well for me when I'm on WiFi.

I bought the sim card from BB and because they activated it for me the card was free.

My bell prepaid plan doesn't include tethering but I do enable mobile hotspots all the time on my phone.

Virgin's website doesn't reflect the $35 5 GB plan.

Does Vonage work like Fongo so you can call landlines for free?

I wonder how long the promotional period will last for...

Also, does this include voicemail for free?

I am strongly considering a reliable voip service to replace my mobile plan

I also wonder how much of a battery drain VoIP service is compared to Fongo, or does Vonage work the same as Fongo?
