Check PublicMobile or Lucky Mobile for cheapest options.

Maybe it's the location, but hasn't been horrible so far. When calling or texting it seems like it takes a dozen seconds before it actually goes through, maybe that's normal?
Your phone probably only has 1 band instead of all 4 bands...
It's risky since some towers don't offer the band and you will be out of service

Worst case, the phone stops working and I just get a new phone and insert the same sim card in it anyways so it should be fine.

Can I ask,

I’m buying it for an area that’s not within the freedom home network. I would to call out, talk outside of the network.

Are there charges for this or is it covered ?

Public mobile has a $13 monthly plan with unlimited incoming call, 100 outgoing Cdn minutes and unlimited international text with 250 mb data. Each year with PM earns $1/month credit up to 5 years ($5/month) credit. So, after 5 years, $8 per month plan. Reliability of Telus/Bell network. You can also buy $5 Talk add on (500 cdn minutes for $5 - unused minutes roll over)

It is covered under fair usage policy. If you do too much talk outside network, FM might cut you off. It is usually suggested to purchase FM if you live in their network.

Do we need to turn off "Cellular Data"? If not do we need to turn off "Roaming"? Using an iphone 6S

Thanks OP. Sighed up my daughter.

It is a regular priced plan. You do have to sign up for autopay to get the $2 per month credit. $15 to the $13 monthly fee.
Five years from now, when you're fully vested in the loyalty credits, it'll cost you $97.40 per year, or $8.12 per month (since PM charges per 30 days, rather than per month). I'm only 3 years in, but already down to $7 per 30 days (the equivalent of $7.10 per month) because I have three refer-a-friend discounts, which are $1 per person per billing cycle on PM. That means I've had three years of refer-a-friend discounts, and counting, on the same three people.

Thanks

No, leave both on. MMS uses data, but doesn't require it on the plan.
No chance of overage charges on this prepaid, unlimited, nationwide plan.
Don't maintain a credit balance (top-up) unless you need the occasional LD calling.
