    Can we now kick and scream at the price Rogers, Bell and Telus charging us?

    I have the 6gb plan promo plan.

    Any suggestions on plans?

    I am with Telus, my plan is as follows:
    -Unlimited local incoming and outgoing calls
    -Unlimited local and international incoming and outgoing text messages including MMS
    -Voice mail, call display and call waiting.
    -1GB Data
    $60.00 a month

    It's all I need and coming off my old plan where I only got 500MB data, 200 minutes and 10 favs and I was paying 7 bucks more for the calls display and voicemail, so 67 total, I am happy with this pricing. The only thing that could have made it better, was if they said we could have 5 favs for anywhere in canada for long distance.

    6GB Super Plan from the Summer. Works for me. I'd keep your eyes open for sales on price plans. Best part is that you don't need a 3 year term anymore for the good plans. So get a Nexus 4 (IF you can) and sign up for a m2m plan and switch when the "premium" plans come out!

    I am happy with me S3. And not sure about the others, but with Telus, they are actually pretty good about changing a plan, even while ON a 3 year contract. They allowed it and did it for me when I complained while I had my Blackberry. So I am sure they would work with me again considering I have been a customer for over 10 years.

    I'm with Telus and my plan pretty much rocks.... I have unlimited Nationwide calling, 5 gig shared data, Unlimited messaging, caller id/vm 3 for $60.00
    And when I got my S3 before Christmas it was 0.00 on a 3 year contract, plus i got a 125.00 gift card from Best Buy.

    Leanne, where are you located? Telus Ontario or out West? If you are in Ontario, and got that price I am calling to and MOAN! That is for damn sure! I also made an error above, I pay 70 a month not 60 for what I have! Did they give you some crazy SAVE plan not to goto another provider? Damit I should have fought harder, now that I am locked they won't care!

    That is pretty much my old plan on my Blackberry.

    I think a lot to do with it is you are in BC and have 3 lines. Where I just have 1, makes a big difference. I would love the free anytime nationwide calling though!

    I have the same plan here.... I think it will be enough for most people.

    I think I would rather have the unlimited local calling over the 10 favs if I had the choice of one or the other. BOTH would be amazing!
    But in this case. I like my unlimited local incoming and outgoing calling.

    SaskTel:

    Unlimited data throttled after 10GB
    Unlimited local calling
    150 minutes of long distance
    Unlimited texting
    Call display

    $65/month

    I'm not sure how some of you can get by with a 1GB plan for data. I've been over that threshold every month since I've got this phone.

    I am with Virgin Mobile on a month-to-month basis (no contract):

    2 GB data
    Unlimited Canada-wide calling
    Unlimited text and picture messages worldwide
    Call display and voicemail 10

    $57 per month

    My younger brother is with Wind Mobile and has unlimited everything on his S3 for $30 a month, but he admits that the service is dodgy.

    That is the ONLY reason I didn't go with Wind, especially in the Niagara Falls area. They just don't have the coverage yet, I figure in 3 years either Telus will HAVE to compete. Or Wind will be even better and I can switch upon next contract update. Wind and I believe SPRINT are going to be merging and that should bring even BETTER packages.
    We shall see. The big boys ( Rogers, Telus and Bell ) Better step up with some better packages soon or wind is going to take over when they get better coverage.

    We just recently got Bell and other providers in the Northern Ontario area. We signed up with a promo plan in December...this is what we get:
    - Unlimited Canada Wide Calling
    - Unlimited local/long distance minutes
    - No roaming charges in Canada
    - Unlimited international and local picture/video/txt's
    - 6 Gb of Data
    - Call Display, Call Waiting and Voicemail 25
    - 10 hours per month of mobile TV (does not count towards your data)
    For $50.00 a month.

    We recently moved to a new province and the bell store told us that we could get a local number but couldn't keep the plan...so we said forget it and kept our numbers and plans. For the same plan in another city was $115 per month. NO THANKS!...lol
