Share50 for iphone plus caller id voice mail 10 and unlimited texts/vid/pic msg for 10$ with the nation wide 5 numbers and 250 mins so for 60$ plus tax, I get 500mb data, 250 min,voice mail 10, caller Id, unlimited text/vid/pic msg, nationwide 5 numbers, is this a good deal?

I never got the phone yet, its in the mail, so I have 30 days... but I just know that very soon I bet you there will be a better plan,,,,, oh well.. I could always cancel.. and pay the ECF and I would still have a nice 300$ I pod touch with a camera.. lol (200ecf and 94$ phone cost)
Your plan is ok..

here in Newfoundland ...

what I'm seeing is that the Bell, Telus and Rogers plans are almost identical ... similar minutes, similar data, similar add-ons. Ater some time with a smartphone on Rogers, I'm left with 2 practical observations: (1) 3G via Rogers sucks, so I will be testing data use if I consider Telus or Bell (I don't know if it's that much better elsewhere, but I suggest testing data speed anywhere) ... and (2) Rogers appears to be the only provider that still charges a "Government Regulatory Recovery Fee" which does add up over the length of your plan.

Don't kid yourself. The other providers do too; they just bury it in the base monthly fee.

Bell vs. Telus

I presently own a Telus regular motorola phone and I'm looking to upgrade to an Iphone. I've been with Telus for about 3 years and Bell is offering me to join my cell bill with my BellTV bill and save $10/month on BellTV and $5.00/month on the cell bill.

Both packages are at the same price which is $50/month. I would like to know if Telus can add some features that and compete with Bell.

Your comments please...

Same network so if the package is cheaper on Bell, then that would be my choice.
