    switching from Rogers to the TELUS Mike network

    I知 thinking about switching from Rogers to the TELUS Mike network.
    My basic plan with Rogers:
    $30 6 gb of data (can use with smartphone and tethering to laptop included)
    $30 for 350 daytime minutes
    $5 for 1000 Canadian LD min
    Unlimited Rogers to Rogers
    Unlimited evenings starting at 6pm and all weekend.
    Total bill before tax $65
    My friend tells me I知 nuts to give this up but I知 working in the plumbing trade and it would be nice to have the Mike DC and even though I get all that from rogers it still bugs me that they ask me to pay for Voicemail and caller id etc..

    Am I crazy or will I be happy with my dissection switching to a Mike?

    If you are in Ontario in Waterloo ... the signal is excellent in this area and you have good coverage in southern ontario !
    Caller id and Voice mail are free on Mike
    You can get great plan ... by exemple
    http://www.telus.com/catalog/en/on/p...alk_tough.html
    Unlimited nationwide !
    Unlimited DC !

    With your mike you can tether for free ! but ... is very very slow (like a 56kbps ... ) !!!! but if you pop your email ... and email is only text without image ! is not a real problem !

    For phone the i1 is great ... great rf great voice quality ! and very good fonction ... email web ... all work great !

    if you need phone you can drop ! get the i686 ... you can put in the water without any problem !

    The i1 crashed on me like one million times in a row so I'm back with the 8350i, but the MiKE network is rock-solid, never had dropped calls, signal is great, and SMS works damn well, too. The MiKE network is a solid choice.
    Tracfone W175g is IMPOSSIBLE to flash. If you don't want to use it with Trac, it's WORTHLESS. Stop PM'ing me!

    thanks for the info.. I called and this plan is only good if you have a min of two phones. $100 setup fee and you must sign for 3 years and pay full price on the phone... a little too rich for my blood.

    You can call the call centre and get this without the setup fee or full phone price.

    i686 is a great choice for rugged needs. There is also the i576s which is a little smaller and a lot cheaper on a 3 year term.

    But if you want a smartphone, the Blackberry 8350i is what I would personally go with.
