as far as rates go. viva n platinum both have that connection fee, although you may not see in on the website. The 1800 numbers there can be accessed from here in Canada, you shoudl try calling.

Hi. I found this old discussion while doing a search. I investigated those websites linked the the first two people, dmarkson and tszefr.
1. I couldn't find references to a 99c dialy access fee. Anyone know if this is still in effect for the Viva plan? As far as I can tell, Viva has a 25c connection fee and 18c/min thereafter while Platinum has no connection fee and is a straight 25c/min, no other charges on either of them except roaming.
2. What is the additional roarming rate for both the Viva and Platinum plans? I sure couldn't find it on their site even though it mentioned abundently, eg. http://www.viva-wireless.com/images/...verage_map.gif
3. They mention text messaging is included ( http://www.icallplus.com/2html/wireless.html )
but is that unlimited incoming and outgoing?
4. And finally, what is this about being able to bring in your own phone? "We’ll even activate compatible used phones through our customer Starter Kit program." Is there a fee to use your own phone?
As mentioned by the second poster, I too would like to use a good ol' Verizon StarTAC 7868W.
If anyone's used it to a sufficient degree, how do you find it? Is it comparable to the old Verizon prepaid (not the yucky new one) which the Viva and Platinum appears to be based on?
dunt know about roaming..
Theres no fee to use your own phone but u supposedly have to activate first through a starter kit before the top up works... but they have a work around for that by somehow activating it for u comp and giving a come credit on it or something, I dunt know exactly how they do it but I got like 4.50, and this way its all set up and u can top up with credit card over phone or with top up cards.
I'll tell u how it works next weekend when I go to NYC, dunt even know if it works
