How big is Wind Mobile's coverage?
How big is it? Mostly Ontario? Are they looking to expand it in the future or would they have to purchase additional spectrum?
Sorry for all the questions, not sure how wireless industry works.

|jayoldschool||Ok, so I asked on the other thread if there were other phones that would work , and was told no. I'm starting a new thread to discuss Wind hardware options. We obviously need one.|

[QUOTE=rosenqui;1031122]Fair enough - they don't call it "roaming" if you're still on their network (which you would be most of the time), it becomes "long distance" usage.
Your Fab10 option is keeping you from incurring those ~35c/min LD charges when you're out of your home calling area. Try calling or taking a call from someone outside of your Fab10 when you're away from the local calling area.[QUOTE]
Actually when I am away for work I am nowhere near Bell's network and I am roaming on TBayTel. When people at work call me I simply hit ignore and call right back. That way neither party is paying any LD because at that point I'm making a local call. I might make two or three short LD calls/month and if LD became an issue I could purchase blocks of Canadian LD minutes that could reduce the cost to as low as 10cents/min (200 min for $20, 100 min for $12.50, etc)

|jpaik||V, thanks. Good news indeed. But a heads-up, to reinforce the WIND FAQ: the phone must be compatible or you're SOL. T-Mobile is a good source, to see if your phone will work on WIND, as both cellcos operate in the same spectrum.|

This became an even bigger issue when Rogers shrunk the size of the GTA local calling area - some people went from being local at both home & work to having one of them be out of zone and therefore long-distance.

Good news! Looks like WIND will be selling SIM cards soon.
From their FAQ.

|jpaik||Thanks, V. I hope WIND will announce new phones after the Christmas busy season.|

|jpaik||V, where did you read this? I'm holding off going to WIND because of the phone choices.|

I've read today the Wind plans to introduce between 10-14 news phones during 2010. I hope they have a nice selection by the time they open shop in Ottawa. Or a the very least offer SIM cards without a phone purchase.
I've also read that the unused minutes from the $15 plan can be carried over to the next month. I haven't seen any confirmatin of this though.

|jshel101||One of the other good things about Wind is that you only pay $0.25 for roaming when you are in the US. This destroys any of the roaming charges you receive from the big three while in the US. Another good feature is that your received texts are unlimited anywhere in the world. This along with the fact that texts sent to Canad and the US are included in your text option. I think these plans are great. I am looking forward to Wind's launch in Calgary this Friday.|
