I'm buying my first cell phone and would like input sorting out the best phone and plan in Edmonton.

Right now I'm deciding between pay-as-you-go and a landline, or a basic talk-and-text with unlimited evenings/weekends as my only phone. I don’t need data or long distance and would like a "dumb" indestructible phone with voicemail.
Based on CompareCellular I'm leaning to Rogers or Telus prepaid by the minute, or a Koodoo or Solo 25 talk-and-text plan.
1. Any comments on how to decide between those options, or a better option?
2. What carrier do you think has the best coverage in Edmonton?
3. How should I figure out how many minutes I'd actually use in a month? On my landline right now it’s maybe 60, but I will be using the cell phone for work occasionally.
4. What type of simple phone would you recommend? I've heard Nokia is durable.
