    Same as you, just picked up a Mobilicity phone today to test the network, so far i'm really impressed, think I might make the switch.

    Since your bell plan includes tax, you should adjust the Mobilicity plan to $45.
    The word 'Pentaband' means '5 Bands', from the Greek word 'pente' meaning '5'. For a phone to be pentaband it has to support 5 bands. If the phone has AWS support, it doesn't automatically mean that it is pentaband.

    Don't send me PMs for questions that can be asked publicly.

    How are you able to pick up a Mobilicity phone to just test the network (without committing to a contract)?

    If its that simple, maybe I should try it out too. i always drive along the 91 Hwy fro New West to Rmd, and my work is on corner of #6 / Westminster Hwy (right outside of their coverage map). I wonder if it'll work there?

    Have you told Bell you're leaving to Mobilicity? I wonder what they would do for you if you told them you are leaving....

    I will never substitute a much superior network to save a few bucks per month.

    Mobilicity has no contracts. I bought one of their $50 phones and paid for the first month of service. Kind of an expensive test but it's the best way to know if it'll work for you.

    Their return policy is 30 days, and less than 30 texts, 30 minutes, 1mb of data... though i'd rather push the network to it's limits than worry about returning such a cheap phone.

    So far the network seems pretty solid where I am (Downtown Ottawa)

    Yeah I agree....define superior. Bell = $130/month taxes in. Mobilicity = $33.60/month taxes in with unlimited usage. Is Bell 4x better than Mobilicity? I'd argue not. Even with the current holes/dead spots in Mobilicity coverage it's getting harder and harder to justify my rank Bell bill.

    Hmmm.....how about indoor coverage, cities that entirely covered, data that actually works, national 3G data, not having to roam on Rogers crappy network. How's that for a start? I have no problem with those who try to save a couple of bux by choosing Wind or Mobi, if the limitations of those carriers are acceptable. Just don't try to compare them to Belus, cause there isn't any. And for the record, I bought a Wind SIM just to compare them to Bell in Calgary. In a word.....pathetic. You get what you pay for in life.

    I guess everyone expects something different out of their wireless service.

    The only expectation I have, is that it works (almost) everywhere. Like I said, for MY needs, reliability is more important that $$. And for what I pay @ Bell, I wouldn't be saving more than a few dollars per month anyway.

    Sorry guys but scotch is right. I wouldn't switch off my Smartphone 50 with $15 discount for Wind or Mobilicity. Regardless of the ETF. The coverage isn't sufficient and roaming on EDGE isn't my cup of tea. Plus the phone selection is god awful. Hopefully they can expand and soon.

    No you don't cause I don't pay for LD. Don't assume that you know what you don't know. Not even all the GTA is covered, so what have you proved?
