Picking a better Canadian mobile provider is driving me out of my wits. Please halp?
I'm looking for a pay-as-you-go plan or a monthly contract to last me about another three or four months (potentially more) in Montreal. I'm currently with Virgin, but I've had endless frustrations with their customer service and would like to switch to another provider if at all possible. I'm trying to spend less than 30 bucks a month.
I've used a nifty little site called Cell Plan Expert
to calculate the best plan for me (light usage in general, slightly more on nights and weekends, no more than 100 texts per month needed, voicemail would be nice), and my results were Koodo's Build Your Own 20 and Talk and Text Combo, followed Solo Mobile's Unbeatable 25. The thing is that both of these plans seem to require you to buy a new phone, and I don't know that it's worth it for such a short time span, plus I adore my old faithful KRAZR.
1. Is it worthwhile switching plans at this point, or should I just put up with Virgin for the next little while?
2. Have you had a decent experience with a pay-as-you-go provider in Montreal? (Seriously, has anyone?)
3. Is there a plan that wouldn't require me to get a new phone, and would that tip the balance in favour of that provider? Cell Plan Expert doesn't take that into account in their calculation.
Thanks, MetaFilter. The amount of money saved may not be worth the hassle, but it's worth my peace of mind.
