Nexus One to be delivered today :) And a question for Canadian owners (Bell)
So I'm currently waiting (somewhat impatiently) for my Nexus One to arrive today.. out for delivery, so it shouldn't be long now
For any N1 users in Canada: I'll be using it on Bell Mobility. I currently have a Pre, which is CDMA, but the N1 will obviously require a Sim card for use on their HSPA network. Has anyone been able to get a Bell Sim card for the advertised $5 price, withOUT having to pay the ridiculous $35 activation fee? I read some posts online of people being able to get them at The Source (Circuit City), but the one I visited told me they couldn't sell the sim cards without a new activation. I'm in Vancouver, btw.
I find it absurd that I would have to pay for activation, when I can do it myself online, all I need is the sim. Also given the fact that I already paid this fee when I signed my contract with them.

And yes, I am sure it was an activation fee I paid when I initially got my Pre. That's a good idea about brining the paperwork in. If I make a big enough fuss about it, I may very well get them to wave it.
And yes, I'm looking forward to being back on GSM/HSPA.. no more data cutting out while on a call is the big one for me.

Well, I managed to get a sim card from Walmart for $10 + tax, no other fee and no hassle. I did the activation online through Bell's Self Serve, entered the APN info myself, and we're up and running. I'll be watching for my next bill to make sure the $35 charge doesn't show up, but the confirmation at the end of the activation process mentioned nothing about any extra fee whatsoever... so we shall see.
