    So today i called my cell phone service provider (Fido), and told em i was canceling. cuz $40 a month is kinda high if ur a student going thru university. however, they convinced me to get another plan, and after some bargaining, i ended up with a (imo) kickass deal.

    250 anytime minutes
    200 texts (free incoming)
    no system access fee
    call display

    for a mere $20 CAD + tax. it was half of wat i was payin before, 50 more mins, and 200 free txt (i had 0 free). i suggest u guys give ur cell phone companies a call [​IMG]

    anyone else have any kickass plans?

    I got Pay as you go phone, I top up £30(around $60) every month and get unlimited free minutes, ONLY to O2 and UK POSTCODE selected landline though.
    Not a kickass plan or something.. but I get out the best of my money.
    I call my girl at least an hour everyday, and she got O2.
    No plan would fit with me, so this is the one I am sticking to at the moment.

    I'm on Orange, its a sim-only contract, but im fine with that cause i already had a phone, and its £10 a month, 150 minutes, 300 daytime texts and unlimited evening and weekend texts. I went for that package cause i text the most and dont talk a lot. :]

    My plan is such a rip-off. :\

    300 minutes
    Free weekends
    Free nights (after 9PM)
    400 texts a month, but that's NOT INCLUDING INCOMING.
    5 Faves, which means I can talk to 5 phone numbers as much as I want.

    And I pay 45 bucks, I think.
