I think Public mobile would be the cheapest due to their rewards?

$25 / month for unlimited Cdn-wide mins + 500MB 3G data - you can lower the monthly cost with:

Less:
-$2 off per month with autopay
- $10 1x time referral credit
- $1 off every 30 days after first year. $2 after second year, and so on
- $1 off your payment every 30 days for every friend you refer for as long as they stay with PM

NOTE: The autopay also gives you another 500MB of data bonus, so you total 1G data (yes realize you don't need data but a nice bonus if you ever do need data)

another option if you or a friend or family member has access to EPP plans thru work - I recall work having a $20 unlimited talk & txt plan if you don't want to bother with rewards

I suppose if you were really wanted to save the money and don't mind the hassle... the $15 PM plan has unlimited incoming but only 100 outgoing. But you have the option of buying 500 minute addons for $5 which is about eight hours worth and lasts until you use it up.

there's also the $99/year Freedom plan if their service works for you

I guess the question is how many actual minutes do you require, and maybe the number of outgoing minutes that are required.

For the two options presented above, the Public Mobile $15 plan plus 500 minute addons may be cheaper than the $25/mo unlimited plan, depending on actual usage. I guess if you use less than 1,100 minutes outgoing per month, then the $15 plan is cheaper.

The very nice thing about the addons is that they carry over, so if you only need to dip into the addon partially one month, the remainder carries into the future.
