住宅电话 + 上网

Basic regular land line phones are offered by: Bell, Rogers, Primus.

I'm still with Bell, got $95+$40 to come.Details @

For my situation, I'd love to have Primus Basic Phone+unlimited Lite Internet.Unfortunately, $$ increased from $30+T => $35+T/mth. Old discussions @

Most likely I'll change to
1.Primus Basic Phone $19.95+ $0.40(911++)+T=$22.97 (vs.$26.38 by Bell).+ get Aeroplan for spending.
2.FREE dialup modem by

Ideally, I can find an old Primus customer who will transfer their old $30 package to me, IF that's allowed.

REMINDER:Many cheap VOIP phones, check for yourself.Do not use Primus VOIP phone, PROBLEMS.

just buy your "baby flowers :p" from Loblaw/Maxi/Cdn. Tire/Home Depot/etc.~$2-$5/box of 6 or 12 plants.

刚刚支付了 我们的保费。有房子的同学们 应该都买了保险。在经济下滑的期间,可能有更多的爆窃案和抢劫。租房子的同学们,如果您家里有许多有价值的东西,可能要考虑保险。

我们的小地方 没有什么有价值的东东,但需要买 责任的保险。例如: 我们的水管爆裂==>影响周围的邻居。

已经在用 XYZ :cool: ,今年的保费还可以,不知道 明年如何去找 更便宜+更好的了,哎! 加拿大 保险万岁,哎!

+请教哪家公司的汽车保险较便宜 @

又电话 。 。 。 。 。 长途预付卡~ 公共付费电话(public pay phone)

Many cheap:
- VOIP phone includes cheap LD options, many ads. on this web site/newspaper
- LD companies: + (I can't find that posting :confused: )
- prepaid phone cards
old:can't find it now :confused: , I use the green Calling Card.

Today, Bell charges $0.50 for using public Pay Phone.I use President's Choice prepaid long distance card (Provigo/Loblaw/Maxi), valid for 6 months, only charge the regular $0.04/minute, NO pay phone charge.
(Don't know if they will change policy.)
