US Roaming Charges Drop At TELUS Due To Increased Competition

We have not seen much movement in cost of the base plans on the carriers, so they are using the U.S. roaming charges as a way to undercut the competition. It is no secret that many Canadians travel to the U.S., and vice versa, and those that travel to the U.S. can be hit with […]

Bell has just added to its Push-to-Talk (PTT) line of heavy-duty work phones – the new Kyocera DuraForce.

Samsung’s WatchON Service In Canada To Shut-Down On December 31

You can say what you want about Samsung, but they are certainly not afraid, or maybe simply too naive, to try new things…they are like the Google of smartphone manufacturers. Samsung wants to have their hand in everything – too much so for many of us – and this can cause unwanted bloatware of unused […]

After LG announcing early in November that they would be the first major company to roll out Android 5.0 Lollipop to their flagship, the LG G3. It seems as though the word ‘first,’ might have been more of an advertising ploy, than reality. Oh, they did roll it out in Poland – not sure how […]

I love the Canadian wireless scene, unlike the U.S., where Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile rule the landscape and things stay relatively calm, Canada’s is always changing.  There is a clear ‘line-in-the-sand’ between the Big Three – Rogers, Bell and TELUS – and every other carrier, albeit smaller ones.  The Canadian Government cannot keep their […]
