Problem with option 2+3 is that u will be locked-in for 2 years of contract, big penalties (pay original phone listed price) if cancel early. If u r not looking for the latest and the best, keep an eye out for promotion for new clients from Koodo. $2-300 gift card + reasonable phone $, then switch to whoever else u want. Get a referral code here (= this 论坛).
Personally I prefer Public Mobile. On going promotions $10 referral bonus for new customer+$1/mth for referrer. PAST promotions were:
1. Online new subscription, $25 for referrer + referee. U pay $10 for SIM. (repeat every month or so)
2. Free SIM+free 1st month. U pay 1st month, they deposit same amount $ in your account after 2 days. (weekend sales, repeat@few weeks)
3. $10 x 6 months for plan over $30 (I suspect this was because of Fizz, x'mas or boxing day sales, not sure if this will repeat)
I PM u my Public Mobile referral code, hope u don't mind. Nice day!
1. $28 only - if u r willing to register a credit card for AutoPay (-$2 AutoPay bonus every month)
2. $27 only for your 2nd year - -$1 Loyalty bonus/month (-$1/year, max. 5 years. i.e. your 6th year will be $23/month)
3. -$1/month/person referred (Referral credit), max. your plan fee =$0)
4. MMS included in all SMS plans - ENABLE data without subscription to(buy) mobile data.
Above are reasons for my preference on Public mobile.
Public Mobile 3G移动数据的实际速度是 LTE light, 几乎所有人都觉得足够, 应该超过3Mbps。本周末我有空时找找数据。
