| | Taking my 8700g to Canada, eh?
Please Login to Remove!
By way of background, I am leaving this Bush-league country for the True North Strong And Free within the next month or two. I currently own an unlocked 8700g which I have used my Rogers prepaid SIM card in with no difficulties. When I get to Vancouver, I am going to want to sign up with a Canadian GSM carrier and continue to use my CrackBerry.
Theoretically all should be well, but experience has taught me that these deals are fraught with peril and inevitably wind up with some nasty surprises. What can I expect and how can I avert them?
Also, what's the best (spell that "cheapest") Canadian carrier? I've heard Rogers is good but that Fido is cheaper. Also, I understand that I won't get the unlimited long distance I've come to know and love up in Canada. Is that correct?
