    Koodo now offers "Instant Voicemail" which sends you your voice messages as an audio file attached to an MMS. But, it doesn't contain a voice-to-text estimation of the message. So you still have to...

    That is the way Chatr was when it first launched. Are we sure it is still? Now that they have a system in place to throttle speeds down to 3 Mbps (or 64 Kbps once you go over your data allotment),...

    A few weeks ago I would have been able to agree with you, but after using Windows phones since the Windows Phone 7 days, I finally had to cave. I decided to go Android instead of iOS because Android...

    Porting in to Freedom

    At the risk of asking a potentially silly question, how the heck does one port in a number to Freedom? I can't find an option to do so through the website. Is it only done in person and/or on the...

    Instead of one of their existing three brands, or in addition to? Though I was a Fido subscriber back then, I have nostalgia for the brand. I suspect it has very little resonance with most...

    Given a choice been the MMS-based voice-to-text that Rogers/Fido offers over the SMS-based voice to text that Koodo and others provide, I'd take the MMS-based version unless there were significant...

    Some of us only have Robellus to choose from. I have signed up with independents several times in the past, only to have them be gobbled up by the Big-3. Where I live, Robellus (and their...

    Thanks for the great summary. So as best as I can determine, out of the 6 carriers:

    - Fido/Rogers is best for U.S. roaming
    - Fido is best for extensive phoning the U.S.
    - Rogers is best overall...

    When I phone Rogers, they apologize for heavy call volumes due to recent promos, and promise that they'll be having great deals throughout the weekend and "into next week". And then the call drops...

    After years of people in BC/AB/ON trying to get plans from outside the region, it's striking for me to see someone trying to get a BC/AB/ON plan! :) Are you from Atlantic Canada? I guess they're...

    Any advantage to going with Koodo over Telus, Rogers, Virgin, Fido, and Bell's 10GB/$60 plans? I'm on Public Mobile so could port out to anyone. My first inclination is to go to Rogers (I also have...

    When I switch people to Public Mobile I activate a new line with a temporary number, I test the number to make sure all the features (talk/text/data) work, and only once I am happy with the service...

    Not necessarily better value than Big3 flanker brands like Public Mobile though. Obviously not everyone knows about Public, but for those that do it's a lot of value on a drastically larger network....

    You can find anecdotal evidence that either Rogers or Bellus is better, or even that they're the same overall. However, Bellus has more sites in total, and in most (all?) provinces claims to cover...

    As others have said, this is somewhere between untrue and overblown. I have access to a Telus line and a PM line and get approximately the same speeds on each. Speeds are generally poor on each for...

    The $40/2GB Chatr plan isn't as good as Public Mobile's current plans, unless you need large amounts of out-of-province minutes. With auto-pay, Public Mobile costs $38.55 per month to get 6GB over...

    Here's an interesting one. We're trying to send SMSs from our Macs via SMS Relay. We've been able to sync multiple Macs with the same iPhone, no problem at all. The problem we're running into is...

    Huh... I wonder if we'll be charged for Unison? I have a couple of lines which had simultaneous ring set up when RON was shut down.

    I'm on the 200 MB free plan on an LTE SIM. I pay for FreedomPop's data rollover service for $3.99 per month, which rolls over up to 500 MB per month up to a maximum of 20 GB. This is a roaming SIM...

    Yes. Despite what my .sig suggests, I'm actually using the two SIMs in different devices at the moment, and the results are no better. I know several people who switched from Rogers/Fido to take...
