Since Telus, Bell, Rogers, and all the world's rate gougers can see exactly how much data plan bits and bytes we each have used and exactly how much we have been charged, why can't we see our own bill in real time? The technology is there. Its not like they have to wait three days for paper to pass through central clearing.

Last year I called Telus about ways to avoid data roaming charges while on a trip to Playa del Carmen. The helpful advisor told me it wouldn't matter because I could not receive any data over their network from Mexico. Imagine my surprise when I turned on my phone in Playa and it started downloading e-mails despite this completely wrong advice. It is easy enough however to turn off your data connection and rely on wifi. I do this when ever I am at home anyway as my new LTE phone is such a data pig.

I was in south africa a couple of months ago and bought a sim card with a bigger data package and calling program for about a quarter of what I pay here.
And yes I hacked my phone so it will take all sim cards because all the canadian plans are crazy expensive.

In reaction to the sideshow about the least liked companies... I notice that the most popular wireless company in Canada is the last publicly-owned one: Sasktel.

Where is your precious free market efficiency now?

OMG SERIOUSLY?
Unless you require it for business a cellphone IS not a necessity. In fact, I'm Gen Y and I refuse to use one.

Harper is taking our democracy for a ride and people are worried about how much it's costing to test their girlfriends? sick.

We can use this as a lever to get Gen Y'ers active in politics.

First world problem you've got yourself there...

You are right. It is a first world problem. I've travelled in the third world and gotten much better, more convenient and cheaper cellphone service.
