I just wanted to be sure.
And my Rogers PAYG plan allows things as I explained above (top-up amounts less than $100 only add 30 more days of time to use your new total $$), so "yes" to your last question.
However, I've not yet seen a postpaid monthly nor contract plan which lets you bank unused MINUTES from previous months.
Now THAT would be useful !
I've been with PC Mobility (or, PC Telecom) for over 5 years. I get a $100 card at the Supercenter when they have their tax-free day, so that saves 13% right off the top. That $100 recharge card is good for a year, once entered into the phone
. I'll get another $100 card when I'm around 3 months or so from the renewal date (again, on a tax-free day), BUT won't enter it until the day before the due date. At that time, all my previous credit is added to the new $100, and I'm good to go for another year. Got the phone on a "tax-free day", as well.
I say the $100 card as the best deal, because the $25 and $50 cards only extend to 60 days' the $10 card for 30 days. Not that good.
I believe the Supercentres also carry other carriers cards as well. As I said, look up the "tax-free days".Post-paid
, no. Everything's prepaid
And carry-over of unused credit to the next month on a contract plan? Yeah, right.
However, saying that, I do remember one smaller provider that did that. Can't remember who it was. But I think that got canned within 2 years, as I have not seen that in a long time.
Here's an interesting tip to save big time on LD fees: get one of the long distance calling cards, rather than paying the 35c/min LD charge on top of the air time. The abovementioned folks have cards for 4c/min North America. Call the 800 #, follow the prompts. A long distance phone call drops from 20c+35c=55c/min to 20c+4c=24c/min. THAT works well!!!
(Oh - forgot - all their LD card expires 6 months after 1st use. However, they start at $5. Same story with tax-free day. They can be recharged. Pay attention, as sometimes, a $20 recharge + taxes) can get you a free additional $5 credit. And all LD cards and recharges expire 6 months later, unless you recharge. Then, all as stated before ...)
