Re: A cute little convo with a bell rep

So you just "discovered" that Petro-Canada has better rates and yet you expect them to already know, them who probably don't shop around for better cell rates much since, you know, they WORK for a cell provider?

Also why would you cancel satellite and internet since Petro-Canada doesn't offer either?

This is starting to look like a plant to get people to visit the Petro-Canada site.

I'm willing to try it. It's cheaper than what I have now, and it includes unlimited mobile browsing even on "unauthorised" devices as long as you can get it working.

I have an unlocked phone, and the SIM card is now on special for $5. It's still $5 more expensive than in Europe (they give them away for free), but it's cheaper than most any other provider.

My wife uses it. I've used it. They run on the Rogers network. Quality is great and it's cheap. A lot of locked Rogers and Fido handsets will work with the SIM.

Would you know if it supports all short SMS numbers? The service I have now i.e. Chatr only supports a handful of short SMS numbers. They don't support CBC Radio 1 Montreal's short SMS number (22222).

I'll also find out if their claim of supporting unlimited mobile Web browsing on SIM cards used on "unapproved" phones is true or not.

Transferring the number is a bit screwy, but I can do that later, assuming I want to keep the old number. I actually like the new number. It's a bit geeky.

EDIT: The Internet works on the Nokia N900 once you set it up properly. Go into settings->Internet connections, and set up the Rogers Internet connection with the parameters specified in the Petro-Canada mobile FAQ. However, you can't use the connection for anything else (no VPN, no Skype), and it shrinks down all of the images.

But my biggest annoyance is that I STILL can't text to the CBC's short SMS number 22222! Crap!

Next test: an old Nokia 6500 Slide, and Opera Mini.
