    I can confirm that a Robbers Doro 410gsm works just fine with a SpeakOut SIM. In fact the Doro phone I bought for my mom several years ago has only been used with SpeakOut. In fact the Robbers SIM...

    Not necessarily. SO and PCM runs on Robbers network. A phone that's locked to Robbers will work with a SO or PCM SIM. So unless the locking on SO phones is more stringent than it is on Robbers phones...

    Check with Telus. FWIW Bell requires 30 days notice to cancel. Dunno about Telus. If that's the case with them too then, before you give notice, call them to remove all extra charge options on your...

    Just to add to the info above, the 2760 has both BT and a camera so you should be able to transfer your photos to a PC using BT.

    As long as the $100 voucher is unactivated, i.e. you haven't added the airtime to your account you can sell it to another SO user and they can add the airtime to their account. You/they have 90 days...

    Another option is to port an existing 416 number over to SO. One way to do that may be to get a Bell (or Solo, etc.) cellphone on prepaid that has a 416 and use it long enough to use up the airtime,...

    289 is the overlay for 905 just as 647 is the overlay for 416. These apply to all types of service, including POTS and wireless. You can make calls to 289/905 as local calls. Everything else,...

    I interpreted the OP's question to be if a SO SIM in a 3G model iPhone can place and receive conventional calls and SMS messages, not whether it would work on 3G networks.

    Should work, based on first-generation iPhones, providing the handset is unlocked.

    It should also work on a Rogers iPhone, however, since you can't get one without a Rogers plan, why would you...

    During August SO has a promo where you get a free Nokia phone*and SIM with $100 air time. I imagine people who want air time top-ups are getting new phones/SIMs under this promo and flogging them,...

    Yes. You need an unlocked GSM phone that operates on 850/1900 Mhz. (Also any phone that's locked to Rogers [but not Fido!] will work since...

    AFAIK all the phones that SO sells in Canada are unlocked so, yes, they should work with a Fido SIM.

    If it's an unlocked GSM phone that operates on the 850/1900 MHz bands then it will work with SO. (As will phones that are locked to Rogers (but not Fido.))

    That's what SO US charges. And T-Mobile in the US is 10/min for calls anywhere in the US.

    Anyway my point is simply that a new cellphone entrant could easily poach SO's and PCM's customers just...

    SO and PCM use the same MVNO, Ztar. If SO's rate increase came from Ztar or Rogers then PCM will likely follow SO in raising their rates. If the idea came from 7-11 then it was pretty bone-headed of...

    That sucks bigtime. SO customer "service" is operated by the MVNO (ztar) that operates SO. I would try to escalate this to someone at 7-11 senior management. If your lost SIM is disabled then no one...
