Before landing in the country, being ready for a landing in Canada, using a Pr phone cards is very important. It is not only convenient for the family to do domestic peace, you contact the airport pick up a friend, contact a taxi driver, at any time in the local area can also help you as soon as possible contact relevant units and departments, make an appointment to deal with relevant formalities. This is very necessary for short friends, for long friends can also do a temporary transition.
This kind of temporary phone card, or in the home to buy is more cost-effective. Domestic Taobao, Feizhu, etc., can buy a few days or even a few months in Canada to use the phone card. You can surf the Internet, make calls, convenient travel navigation and contact.
General cost performance is relatively high is the roaming card of the United States, local and domestic calls are almost unlimited, the need to inform the specific activation time in advance when buying, activated by the seller on time can be used.
There are two kinds of roaming cards. One is AT&T, which has wide signal coverage and large 4G traffic (almost unlimited), but it cannot share hot spots, and its signal does not cover remote areas such as Banff and Yellow Knife.
Before I landed in domestic choose this card, feel is good, used in Calgary and Saskatoon has no problems. Only a bit of trouble is to call the domestic need to dial a long list of numbers, but from another perspective, it is also one of its advantages. After all, local phone CARDS generally can't go back home?
The other is T-Mobile, which has the advantage of being able to share hot spots, but the signal mainly covers medium and large cities, and has less 4G for the same price (maybe unlimited 2G after 4G, but too slow to be ignored).
There is also a Leyou card cooperated by TELUS, a Canadian operator, and wechat. The local signal coverage in Canada is very strong, which can cover remote areas such as Banff and Yellow Knife. It is suitable for visiting remote areas and maintaining a signal all the time. The use of that mini program for consumption monitoring and recharge renewal, but its shortcomings are also obvious, less talk time, less 4G traffic.
If you do not buy the card well in China but buy it in Canada, you can only buy the local prepaid phone card in Canada in the short term, but it is generally expensive. If you want to include both local calls (generally not including calls to China) and traffic, there are not many choices, and the cost is generally 40-50 dollars. There's also a one-time card fee of $10 and goods tax.
Prepaid card can always recharge the card. If the card is not used, do not need to tube, because no money can not be used, will not be arrearage, long-term use may be automatically canceled.
We DID not arrange GOOD time AT that time, when the card THAT DOMESTIC BUYS EXPIRES QUICKLY, CONTACT CUSTOMER SERVICE JUST DISCOVER, NOT ONLY RENEW FEE PRICE IS EXPENSIVE AND TROUBLE, STILL HAVE ACTIVATION FAILURE RISK. Therefore, you can only buy local prepaid phone cards.
We went to a WirelessWave in the Centre Mall on 8th Street in Saskatoon to compare several products and settled on a Virgin Mobile plan.
The plan includes unlimited local calling and 4 gigabytes of high-speed LTE data per month, which is mostly adequate. The monthly fee for the package is $55, the government-mandated 911 fee is $0.94, the one-time card fee is $10, and the 13% labor tax is $8.57, making a total of $74.51.
Therefore, if the short boarding is recommended to plan the landing time, in China to buy the corresponding time of the flow card, uncertain time is the best time to buy a long point, it is much cheaper than to buy in the local.
Of course, if you're in Changdeng, you have a lot of options. You can choose from a postpaid plan, and there are a lot of contract plans available for $0.
During the epidemic, I am also idle and bored. I want to see what you said is a very cost-effective contract machine. Taking iPhone 11 (128GB) as an example, I made a simple comparison on the official websites of major carriers (dollar unit: Canadian dollars). It seems that it is not as cost-effective as imagined. Maybe this model is relatively popular (no 0 yuan plan is found, you have to pay part of the purchase price), or the communication fee in Canada is relatively high.
