Been with Telus since 2003 (awesome customer service)
it's not as cheap as the $10 plans, but i'm pretty satisfied, especially cuz i only had to call once
Sweet Deal 25 (100 minutes, 100 bonus minutes, UL w/e, VM3) - $17.50
Loyalty package 15 (Call ID, 250 outgoing txt) - free
SAF - $6.95
Emergeny - $0.75
Total - $25.20
After tax = $28.50
Best part = no contract
What happened: I was paying talk 20 for 200 min ($20) + Text 30 ($3) + smart bundle 7 for CID, VM3 (free for 1yr contract), UL W/E (free for 1 year contract), SAF, E911 + tax which totaled to about $32/month.
My contract is over mid-march and i didn't want to sign another contract because i might be moving away in August. But i realized that if i don't sign another contract, i'd lose all the features that i get with the contract (which means no UL w/e and no call id).
I did some investigating at different carriers and I found that Fido was able to give me almost exactly the same plan (except only 50 day minutes) for about the same price w/o contract (as long as i have a gsm phone, which is not hard to obtain an old one from friends). I called telus to see if they can match that and they gave me what i have now, which is even cheaper than before with more features
