You can buy pre-paid cell, domestic and international long-distance phone time at participating Petro-Canada stations. We carry a wide variety of brands for both long-distance and wireless service so you can get the phone time that’s just right for you.
Look for pre-paid calling cards with local access numbers or toll-free access numbers to save money.
Please note there is a $1.00 Transaction Fee (plus applicable tax) on the sale of all Wireless Airtime (excluding Petro Canada Mobility). Don’t forget their low-cost brands that are out to punish any competitors trying to enter our profitable market. A recent report by the New America Foundation’s Open Technology Initiative (OTI) concluded that Canada tops the entire world for the most expensive voice and data rates. OTI examined prepaid, unlimited, and postpaid plans in 11 countries in order to determine the best rates in each. If you’re looking for a discount on your cell phone plan, the clear answer is to move to India or Hong Kong. I have a $17.50, 250 weekday minutes voice plan, and with a good data plan (that I use most of the time), I average about 100 minutes of voice calls per month. I used to have a corporate plan but I dumped it as I could do way better with just a personal account. I’ve lived in India, and the rates are so competitive because of the competition there.
I just moved to the UK from Canada- about a week after I got here, I picked up a LG GT 540 optimus(cheap android phone) for 100quid- 160 cad with taxes already in. Until the Canadian Government steps in, Rogers and the others will keep charging all they want and we will have to pay it if we want a cell phone. Its hard for companies to make it cheaper because we just don’t have the population in canada compared to the countries with the lowest rates.
Operating costs in Canada, with our sheer size and relatively small population may play a part.

Is it any wonder that our cell phone rates are high, and why we have little to no competition here?
Guess what, Canada is a very dense country if you consider that most (%70) of the population lives in the small and dense areas of the Lower Mainland, the Calgary-Edmonton Corridor, or the Quebec-Windsor Corridor. You really think the Rogers and Bellus have to cover every square inch of Canada’s land mass? Equipped with must-have features, the Nokia 2680 PayGo from Rogers is a stylish slider phone that keeps you in touch with fun and friends.
With popular, must-have features like a built-in MP3 player, FM radio, 1.3MP camera and web browser, the Nokia 2720 from Fido offers the ultimate in simplicity.
We activate your phone time at time of purchase by giving you your own personal identification number (PIN) on a paper slip. Plus, you can conveniently pick up pre-paid cell time at almost 1,000 locationsacross Canada. Gee, at that rate, you’re better off using a pay phone to make a call–that is if you can still find one! Just went straight to voice only, then straight to text only, then data only and added the 3 up.
We’re hardly of any interest to any company who wants to make money while offering us prices comparable to the rest of the world.
Its sleek design is home to a 2.0MP camera with video capture, integrated media player, vibrant display, and a memory card slot for expandable memory up to 8GB. And with Bluetooth technology, you can wirelessly transfer your favourite photos to your compatible devices like a PC, or chat hands-free with Bluetooth-enabled accessories. Snap photos and video, listen to your favourite tunes, and stay connected to everyone you know with ease. Comparatively, users in Canada must pay US$67.50a€”making Canada the only country to top the US. Give me a break, stop your bitching, and when you have to go to Fort Mac or wherever the hell in the middle of nowhere you are, be thankful you have coverage, because garan-freaking-teed without the rate plan costs you would never otherwise have coverage.

They state they look for the most cost effective plan, but then piece one together from various bits which really don’t exist in the real world. So while you can get a cheaper rate by taking the combo pack, it is still higher than the other countries. So profitable in fact that other upstart companies are chomping at the bit for a piece of the action.
Simple: Because more money spent by consumers = more taxes in the federal (and provincial) coffers. Do I start by just adding features to my present phone plan then ask for the iphone at a later time?
Not only that, but we have a seemingly techno-phobic (or, perhaps more accurately, techno-ignorant) government (on both sides of the aisle, I might add). I have, and I can tell you, they will not compete against each other on wireless because it is so damn lucrative. If I want to use the internet, I can use wi-fi on the phone for free, it’s faster too.
I wanted to buy a WP7 phone, but the only somewhat good phone (Samsung Focus) is exclusive to Rogers, and the make you buy a data plan ($50 is the cheapest). If we support the upstarts where possible we drive the big three into submission, or at least make them start to play nice(r). This is bullcrap, we have the worst selection of phones in the world, with the highest rates. It’s like our Canucks, they suck ass, have never won the Cup, and we have the most expensive tickets in the NHL. Does anyone know if it’s possible to buy and unlocked phone online and bring it over to Bell?
