Will I regret getting Wind Mobile?

Is there any reason not
to get a Wind Mobile voice plan, if I'm almost always in Toronto (a 'Wind Zone') and prioritize not having a contract?

My priorities: I want unlimited talking and texting, which would be almost entirely with other people in Toronto. I'd like to be able to make a receive the occasional domestic long distance call without it costing me a fortune. And I don't want to be on a contract (even though that means having to pay cost for my phone).
I'm looking at Wind's "Always Shout" plan
, which seems to be better for these purposes than the comparable plans I've looked at (e.g. from Fido and Koodoo).
But has anybody had any prohibitively bad experiences with Wind that I'll wish I had known about? This is my first foray into wireless (yes, yes it is), so assume I know absolutely nothing about this stuff.*
*Except I do know that Wind's selection of phones is quite limited, and that any phone I got with them would have to work on AWS. If the plan turns out to be the best, should I buy one of their offerings
, or is it worth it to try to get my own compatible one on Craigslist?
