Wow. Now can I move a post paid plan to this plan is the question. I have a line my parents use as a home phone since it was cheaper than anyone else so don’t need data, so this will be perfect and saves about $90 a year

Sorry, I’ve been away from all the Freedom chatter for awhile.

If you’re outside their network, what happens? Do you pay per minute, per x data, etc? Or is there a package you can purchase for x amount of minutes and x amount of data?

Thanks in advanced!

/Doh! Just realized this doesn’t include data.

What does this mean in terms of service or extra cost?

Great price is normally $24, then on sale for $14 but pay yearly and its $99/year

The nationwide roaming is confusing/mixed messages

One message says

When you travel outside of our ‘Freedom’ network in Canada, you’ll be connected to a partner’s network. Your phone will display ‘Nationwide’ when in this area and may also indicate that it’s roaming. You’ll have access to the ‘Nationwide’ portion of your plan or pay-per-use rates may apply.

Terms state
Big Gig Unlimited + Talk plans include unlimited incoming talk & outgoing Canada-wide talk from the Freedom or Nationwide networks to Canadian phone numbers only.
Bell Loyalty (or unloyalty) could only offer me a plan that was MORE than my pretty bad current plan $55/2GB Boyd ... 15 year customer... bye Bell. Hello Koodo and public mobile

Some additional info;

A one-time connection fee ($10 for Prepaid) will apply for each new line activation in-store.

Also, remember to read up on the terms and conditions.

Lots of misinformation in this thread. Freedom prepaid plans have nationwide coverage.

This plan has nationwide coverage included. Unlimited talk/text anywhere in Canada.

No data included. Ppu $15/GB

I wish they do another plan around $199/yr, with 2GB data/month

If you use a phone that doesn't have AWS support would it just stick to partner network?

Is there a way to force a IPhone to connect exclusively to 2G services only? If so, I’ll sign up an elderly and make it exclusively roam on Rogers.

GTEH!
I'd sign up for Freedom plans in a second. It's too bad their Canada wide coverage is weak that always stops me. Neutral Face

Others have reported (in other post) that within the Home Zone, Freedom defaults to their own network and you may not be able to connect to another providers network.

Not that I can see on an iPhone 8 with iOS13.
