    To be fair, 'X has not admitted to any wrong doing' seems to be a pretty standard concession in corporate settlements.

    I've seen enough from <withheld> to tend to think this suit against Bell...

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the only other 'new entrant' still kicking was Videotron/Quebecor. MTS and Sasktel were both provincial Crown corporations, MTS later being taken private. ...

    The last phone I bought was a used HTC One (M7) because I got a screaming deal very soon after it launched, and I wasn't entirely loving the Nexus 4 I'd purchased from Google Play. One 50%-off 3rd...

    SK, & MB are about the only parts of the country that don't desperately NEED Wind service; they already have 4 strong players and thus reasonable pricing.

    HSPA: Galaxy S4 "sale"

    So as of this morning (excepting the usual suspect MB/SK/TBAY) the Galaxy S4 has gone down from $100 -> $0, but the "minimum monthly spend" has gone UP from $55 -> $70 (?!)

    Just remember, US Easy Roam doesn't give you unlimited data, only access to your plan's data bucket while roaming in USA (incl. Alaska and Hawaii), Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. Beyond...

    Maybe I'm misinterpretting that, but their use of terms is confusingly inconsistent if local means country-wide elsewhere, but a VERY small calling area within Canada. As for the brackets, I thought...

    I'm assuming they went with $100 because that is the amount mandated in the CRTC WCC.

    It should be noted that with Rogers it is explicitly stated that only local calls within the US are included. ...

    I haven't read much of the thread, but in case there is any confusion:


    - U.S. Roam Ready is the $20/mo. feature, for business accounts.

    - US Easy Roam is the $7/day feature, for consumer...

    It's an automatic roaming plan option instead of having to add a package each trip. With this feature on an account, once a call is made/received in the USA a single $20 charge is added to the next...

    Temporary outage? Some sort of ad blocker preventing a script from running? It works for me.

    I think it's BS too, but in their defense vs. online code sellers, they pay people to walk grandpa or grandma through the process over the phone because 'their grandchild told them they could use...

    Is there a sticker or printing of the FCC/ICC certifications? The model number is normally listed there. I agree with others, the H810 0508 markings look like the housing part number (possibly with...

    I'm not sure I'll ever understand the desire to pay by tapping your phone. I guess reducing the thickness of your wallet by 3mm could be considered a benefit..?

    I think you reversed the labeling on the Hot/Warm/Cold chart, Howard. It shows the opposite of what you say.
