At least a couple other people per this thread, I'm sure there are more - https://twitter.com/jutocol/status/1323676787876990977.

Likeliest vector, given what I know of my own behaviour, if this is legitimately not their own infrastructure or a false positive, would be clipboard-monitoring by legitimate-ish Android apps.

Does anyone know if Freedomís F&F discount applies to their home Internet? Iíd be knocking almost two thirds off of my bill at the cost of going from 150/150 to 150/15.

Iím assuming itís just rebadged Shaw service?

Everyone involved in making freedom's horrible website needs to be dropkicked into a dumpster. Is anyone able to successfully browse their devices menu? I'm trying to do the audacious thing of seeing if they sell iphones with more than the base amount of storage.

Best Iíve seen so far is still the $50/20gb from multiple carriers for government employees. Unless something crazy gets announced Iíll probably jump on that.

Now if I could only get a halfway decent rate on home internet. It should be criminal the way Shaw/etc are exploiting the pandemic to raise rates.

Wait wait, Is Telus really doing door to door sales during a pandemic?! My landlord works for them as some kind of systems administrator and said a thing in passing about their door knocking campaign being really successful for increasing customer numbers, but it sounded so crazy that I just assumed I had misunderstood and changed the subject LOL

Unlimited everything, covered by the federal government. Buy your own device, or a device is provided under E.I./Disability/subsidy etc. every ~3 years. Replacement for a straight up broken phone for a modest fee.

I'm pretty happy with the famous discontinued Public Mobile deal tbh. I guess Canada wide calling (I only got province wide) and visual voicemail would be nice additions.

With the referral and loyalty discounts I'm paying $36.16/mth after tax right now which I can't really complain about. Obviously in my dreams I'd want the extras I mentioned for free but realistically I'd be willing to pay a bit more to get them. Not too much though as I would rarely use them.

Yeah, fair question. Now that Bell owns MTS, does that whole Bell/Telus 100% shared network thing apply?

My parents got forced on to Telus because the province forced MTS to divest some customers during the Bell takeover. I noticed that they seemed to get better service at their cabin near Kenora so I switched to Koodo approx 2 years ago. As far as I know Telus/Koodo customers have total access to BellMTS towers and I've never noticed a coverage problem (my work phone is BellMTS).

I'm thinking about buying my girlfriend a new iPhone. She's on Freedom but wants to leave. Does it make sense to buy from Apple or from a carrier? How does buying a phone for someone else even work?

Are you planning on buying it outright? Because you can just purchase a phone outright from Apple or from a store like Best Buy Mobile for the full amount with no contract. My wife and I have been buying our phones that way for the last few generations. I think the ones that you DONíT buy from dedicated carriers are unlocked by default.

This thread's been quiet as heck, so hey, gonna share this link:

https://www.ertyu.org/steven_nikkel/cancellsites.html

Data last updated February 1st and holy crap did a bazillion Telus towers appear since the last update in many areas of greater Vancouver, Victoria, and a bit elsewhere - their 5G deployment is clearly underway.

I looked around the GTA a bit and found Rogers does have a few clusters but nothing that remotely compares.


Anyone know anything about whether 5G towers are going to be shared differently than the current Bell/Telus alliance?

Iím tempted to try out that Shaw plan just to see how the reception is with my phone. I think if I want to not move a number over there is a $30 fee, so bleh.

Iíve also heard I can get Fido to drop my bill considerably if I call in so I might just do that.

I've been on a grandfathered plan off contract for a long time now because I rarely call or text, and am almost always near wifi so I don't really need more than the 500 Megs/mo. (plus an extra gig for $10 should I overuse). But Bell just announced plans to up a few features to the point that I'm now into contract range of $70 which is insane, but seems now is time to look for a new plan.

I'm not super happy with Bell firing all the TSN folks but gently caress Rogers. Ideally I want good coverage into the mountains (I'm in Calgary) which Bell was best at back when I last searched. I'm currently on an unlocked Galaxy S7. Where can the best deals be had these days?

I'll try the Bell loyalty line as well but honestly they have never offered anything that tempted me off my old ongoing plan so I don't hold out much hope there.
