New Petro Website. http://mobility.petro-canada.c.....s/135.aspx

But it seems like you have to buy at least $50 now to charge it for 180days

These are the new rates. To get $0.20 a minute you'd have to pay $50 too it seems. http://mobility.petro-canada.c.....s/187.aspx or else its $0.25 a minute.

It sure seems like Speak Out now is the better value.

hm, if its the same company behind it, I'd assume speakout is changing its fees too.

I dunno, I got petro cause it was more convenient to charge my phone. The one seven eleven where I live closed down this year.

We'll see if they change their rates.

One thing I've always liked about Speak Out over Petro Canada, is that any top up lasts a year. Now, Petro Canada's top ups last either a month, 4 months, 6 months, or a year. More confusing than Speak Out's top ups, where any denomination lasts a year.

haha what horrible luck. Plus I noticed that when I bought my phone with the $50 credit I was taxed on both the phone and the credit, is that normal to tax on phone credit?

Also from their FAQ:

Q. Can I track my minutes on a monthly basis?

A. Yes, you can view your account statement and see the balance online.

I wonder if that just shows current balance or also a call-by-call summary of usage. If also the latter then that would be fantastic.

Bonjour

Been searching for answers about Cellphones, Plans, Options, ... seems like forever. And luckily found them ALL here!!!
Hadn't even heard PetroCan having phones before! At first thought it was too good to be true ... :>) Talked w a couple of ppl around, nobody knows about it either!

So, really do want to THANK Peter who created this Forum & everybody who participates, cause I really had no idea what to do, where to go, what to buy!!!
Been wanting to get a cell phone for well over a year (more like 2y. really ...) for emergencies & such, but each time I try to tackle the subject I get an headache instead from all the confusion!! So I always give up.
Why ohhh why do cies make it so complicated??!!

Then, a couple of weeks ago I stumbled into this Forum, I could hardly believe my luck!

Anyway, found a PC station a small bike ride from my house, took the plunge & bought a 3555 phone yesterday & a $50. card.
FINALLY :>)
Doing the Happy Dance ...

Un GROS MERCI,
Manu
