Shaw Fibre+ Internet customers are eligible to receive a $15 credit per month on the $15 By The Gig plan.

For those who already signed up, can you confirm if the phone goes to a roaming partner while in a home zone?

I was hoping to use my old Nexus 6P for my son, but it doesn't show on the list Shaw has, would a kiosk/store be able to confirm more accurately if it works, or is it really limited to 1-2 year old phones?

It would be helpful if people posting how much they pay for internet would mention when they signed up.

Im trying to figure that out. Their website says minimum bands 4. And also most phones should work. Posted earlier with this same issue. Going to try sim in an iPhone later today and see if it connects. That will help me figure out hardware vs activation issue.

Speak to the loyalty team. I pay $64/mo for Internet 300 and home phone. Should be able to get a good deal

Tried Shaw sim card into a carrier unlocked iPhone 4. shows "Nationwide" as the carrier. as the iPhone 6 will show "Shaw" as the carrier. I did not try to call or text on the iphone 4. I did not want unexpected charges.

Ditto for Rogers - and I'm on an EPP.

That's really odd. PM sent, have to mention you're looking to cancel, move. I'll send you a PM for a contact I have

Unless he returns it in the eval period, he'll be locked into that plan for 2 years or have to pay back the subsidy he received on the phone. BUT, he could port over to a net new $0 plan, use that sim in his new phone with his pre-existing number. His phone # is now tied to the $0 plan though. Net cost is the same, but now on the hook for both plans if leaving Shaw.
I don’t see why it would be a problem. They didn’t tell me it would be anyways when I brought up this is how I’d do it.

Maybe the rep was mistaken, but if I have to “return” the Pro Max and cancel the plan then “re-buy” it and port, I’d do it. I figured it would be like doing a number swap.

Update: Called Shaw and they can indeed do this on an existing line.

If a phone has UMTS (3G) B4 and LTE B4, it will 'work', unless perhaps you're in a signal-challenged location or building (basement, elevator, big-box store, fringe-coverage, congested area,..). B4 is the minimum, for bandwidth LTE B66 is a must.

But for the best network experience, you really want both extended range LTE B13 and VoLTE (enabled on device and activated on the line). For independence from the cellular network you want WiFi Calling.

That's where the Enhanced Services Device Compatibility chart comes in. There are some very afforable BYOD options listed and available for purchase through Shaw.
