What is the best Pay as you go plan in Toronto?
Does anyone know what Pay as you go plan is the best in Toronto? I mean which carrier provides the most affordable Pay as you go plan/service. I did a google search but all the topics that it found were from 2006..2008 etc. So a lot could have changed since then. Most people seemed to say Fido though.
Thanks for any help!

Telus. It's 20c min when you buy any add on ... like $5 SMS package or $20 for unlimited SMS + 250 Mbt of data.
Another option is 7-11 if you don't use your phone much - because $20 top up lasts for a year, 25c a min.
I'm not sure what you mean by add on and top up. In the past I've just used Rogers pay as you go plan and put down $100. But Im not sure if Im getting the best deal or not. How is Telus better?

best pay as you go (best = life of minutes purchased) would be speakout by 7-11.. $10 for the sim.
$25 gives you 100 minutes for one year.
Petro Canada has a similar offer, where you pay less for mins, but they don't last for a year.
both work on Fido/Rogers GSM 2G.
check out their websites.

I believe texts are pay per use at $0.10/each both ways.
If you're looking for a cheap plan because 100/min are not enough, there are plans out there that cost $15/month, unlimited local... and nothing else.
I guess your intended usage would determine what plan you need.
Thanx for letting me know.
So isnt the Telus plan the cheapest then since it's 20 cents a minute and the 711 plan is 25 cents a minute? Also is it possible to get a prepaid Telus plan that doesnt expire after a month? With Rogers if you pay $100 it lasts for a year.
I think I will go with 711 for now but I have a few more questions...
Can I buy the plan/sim online or do I have to goto a 711?
Are there any forms I have to fill out?
Is there a way I can choose my own phone number?

I'd suggest you called speakout to confirm if you can pick up a sim in store
no forms to fill out... nothing at all.
as for picking your own phone number, that would be a very high "unlikely", *unless* the call center has a few they can pick from *if* that's the only way to get it (vs picking up in store)
Is there a way to get my number first from another place? What if I already had a phone number wouldnt I be able to transfer it over to 711 speakout? So can I get my number somewhere else first and then transfer it to 711? If so, where can I get it from? thanks!!

- Optional, but not needed.
Windmobile, Mobilicity. You'll need to have a tmobile AWS 1700 blackberry to use it on their networks though. Service is great.
