So it seems that a fully functional iphone plan with data generally costs about $70.
I am wondering who has the cheapest non-data I phone plan.

Post your plans with a price and descriptions.

I thought your only choices with an iPhone in Canada was Rogers and Fido and as such would be pretty much the same?

it would but there are different plans and people get random credits as well which lowers individual bills.

I don't speak from experience, but from what I seen especially in this forum, Fido more times than not turned out to be the cheaper one when it came to non-data plans.

$17.50 (250 minutes, unlimited evenings and weekend starting at 5 pm), $11 (125 txts, unlimited incoming:lmao:, voicemail, call display)+ $6.95 + $.50= about $40.


I have WiFi absolutely everywhere I go. It is my personal phone. I have a blackberry for work so I don't miss anything all that important ever.


The only programme I wish I had a data plan is SodaSnap. It sends pictures you have taken on your iPhone to email addresses as post cards with a nice message. Oh well, I can live without it.

It's a grandfathered plan from 2000.

FYI everyone...OP's original question is who has lowest non-data plan.

300 minutes anytime, 100 text messages, voice mail, call display (really old Talk30 plan)

$30 + 6.95 + 0.50 +taxes = $42.32

I have a quick question for you "grandfathered" posters: How are you helping with the question of the OP? Are we to assume that they are hooked up to the same carrier as you for the last 20 years or so? Not like the OP will be able to call in and get your plan, so how does that help the OP. In reality it confuses those who don't have access to "grandfathered" plans. Showing off is one thing ;) but helping the OP would be better in their decision :)

250 Weekday, UL Evenings/Weekends @ 6 ($25)
Unlimited Incoming ($0)
Rogers to Rogers ($0)
100 Canadian Long Distance ($0)
$15 Value Pack ($5 after $10 Credit)
$30 Data Plan

$60 Before Taxes and BS Fees, $76.22 after. I've never actually had it that low due to Intl Long Disatance Charges and Roaming, but that's what the base plan would go for.

The grandfathered plans are okay as long as they indicate that. I kind of had a twofold interest in seeing what the cheapest available plan is ( although I am pretty sure that has to be the Fido $17.50 plan) and in seeing if anybody has some crazy cheap plan through grandfathering and credits.

I think it is a little ridiculous that cell plans have gotten more expensive over time. Isn't it supposed to be the other way around?

Here's my grandfathered voice plan:

Rogers 20 MTH = $10
Bonus 20 Minutes = $0
Monthly Plan Credit = -$5
SAF fee = $6.95
911 fee = $0.50

= $14.07 with tax

(+ $30 / 6GB data plan of course)

Do you have an Airmiles Card? Switch to the $17.50 EPP. You won't get unlimited Rogers/fido or 6pm starts included, but it won't be $35 to start with.

(You can get an Airmiles card number in a couple of minutes online.)

You do not need an Airmiles card. This 17.50 plan is available to anyone and everyone. I spoke with Fido last night and the rep offered me this plan and also said I do not need to take a data plan at all and that I can get this plan with an iPhone and was I ready to place an order?

I was talking about Rogers, should have said. Also, other cards besides Airmiles work for this. Or, yes, going to fido, for the "Killer Plan."

150 Anytime minutes ($10), per second billing, $11 value pack, $30 data plan, $10 discount... total of $48.45/month, including SAF and 911.

I ought to mention that I've received another $10 discount as well as unlimited incoming calls, bringing my total per month to $43.45 taxes included.

I just have the normal fido EPP that came out this month. I think its a very good deal- for new customers, for existing ones just call retentions.

I think talking about grandfathered plans gives a good impression of what can be achieved through retentions. After being with Rogers for only 8 months, through retentions I got for $25

300 anytime
evenings @ 5
voicemail/call display/125 text
100 long distance

Not at good as grandfathered plans, but much better than what I signed up for and much cheaper too.
