koodo has the xr for $700 now and it seems they keep raising the price for some reason
retail is 1,060 and with tab its now its retail price 700 upfront and 360 on tab

yes but freedom network isn't as good

i tried freedom 1-2 years ago and couldn't get a signal at work in a warehouse in south london
and when i thought i had signal i was sending texts that they charged me for because i was on 'away' network

also there still is a gap on the 401 where there is 0 signal which is kind of scary if ever to get in an accident or break down

$75 for 500 minutes on the Rogers network, and you're wondering who downvoted? /facepalm

yes, it's better than Koodo atm but it's not noteworthy [generally speaking] for RFD'ers in my humble opinion.

Does that mean I won't lose reception everywhere because they're using towers from the big 3?

I have no problem using it around London to all the way to Sarnia and Detroit uses Nationwide Roaming call and data.

In places where you're not under Freedom's network, it switches to their "Nationwide" network which is essentially just roaming. I find that, typically, they use Rogers as their roaming partner in most areas. All the new Big Gig plans come with Nationwide data, text and talk so you should be fine if you sign up.

Oh that's interesting. I last tried freedom in 2015 but lost reception at friends homes and at work. I'm currently on the $40 6gb koodo plan but I was looking to get an iphone. I might hop on freedom to try things out again.

Freedom definently has improved over the past few years, night and day difference imo. Freedom offers a 30 day free trial sim w/ 10GB LTE, 1000 minutes of talk and 1000 text messages (all under the Freedom network, so no Nationwide).

im with koodo and have 8 gigs for $65/month with tax

if i port number i'd lose this plan and if i don't like freedom i can do fido but thats $10+ more and 1gig less

and if u just do the trial and decide to stay with freedom can u still port over your old number? and just cancel the trial account?

I wouldn't recommend porting in (im not sure if they even allow it) to the trial plan, I would just sort of keep it to see if the areas you are at are covered. If you do decide to stay with Freedom, I would suspect that they would cut the trial account and you would essentially start "fresh" where you could port in your number and choose an in-market or current promo plan.
