I’ve never had to buy my own phone or cell plan before -- it’s always been through an employer. I know the phone I want, and I want to get the best value on it and a suitable service plan. I have a strawman. Is it the right idea? [more inside]
We're holidaying soon, and I'd like to get a local sim card to make life a little easier. We're spending most of our time in the UK, but will also be visiting Paris, Vienna, Prague and Berlin. Are there any good options that would cover the lot?
I'm on a grandfathered unlimited data plan on Verizon. I use <1GB of data a month, and I'm paying $90/mo for it. I should go to an MVNO, right? Help me wade through the details. [more inside]
The iPhone (2010-2015, RIP) in my pocket has finally perished and I have to look for a replacement. I am in southern Ontario and have been dealing with Fido mostly problem-free for fifteen years, but I am open to other suggestions. I am all over Canada frequently for work so coverage, it is a thing. Data is less important - my current plan has the lowest possible amount and I think I have exceeded the cap two or three times in five years. [more inside]
Right now I pay AT&T $120 each month for iPhone talk/text/data service. For the past several months, all I have really used is maybe 1-2 hours of talk per month and perhaps 100 texts. I don't use the data at all. I miss ye olde $40/month Cingular plan on my indestructible Nokia brick of yore. How do I get back to that place (and keep my current phone number)? [more inside]

Don't need much from a cell/smart phone, and trying to save $$ In NYC area, I need a simple phone for calls and some texting. MAC friendly. Would like internet access if affordable, but how much are you paying for it/how do they charge?? Unlocked smartphone w/ prepaid? Or just a good, solid cell?
Hi, I will be living in Mumbai for 11 weeks next summer. I have an unlocked iPhone 3G. What is my best bet in terms of carrier and plan for the cheapest and most reliable data access? I plan to do local calls over the cell phone voice network and international calls via Skype on the iPhone. Thanks in advance!
Looking for a cheap pay-as-you-go or pre-paid plan, to use until the end of December. I have a Motrola Razr (v3r, or something like it, as I recall), which I used to use with T-Mobile, although I'm not opposed to buying a cheap phone for the interim (although it'd have to very cheap). What are my options? [more inside]

We've all basically acknowledged that Canadian cell/mobile industry players are wankers and price themselves waaay too high for what we get. So until they get their act together I'm going to be cheap on my next purchase/plan. [more inside]
