I know DMTS and TbayTel control the coverage like the mob over there.
The Bell page shows they have 'extended' coverage. Getting an answer from them on what that means is like pulling hens teeth.
I'd rather hear it from people who are there! Do you have an Iphone, with Bell in NW Ontario and does it work?
I don;t know much about this cell phone stuff, but am learning. DMTS uses a 2G network. Does your IPhone4 work in a 2G mode?
I can get a pretty good plan through an association which uses Bell. I have to get a YAM number although there is an unlimited long distance option that's only $15 a month. I plan to be living in YXL, traveling throughout most of Northern Ontario so a 'home' number means little at this point.
Thanks for any insight.
Let me point you towards HowardForums, which is a Canadian-based cellphone discussion forum. This thread in particular has a little bit of info:
What does "Extended" Coverage Mean on Bell's Coverage Map?
I never thought figuring out which cell phone to get would be so hard. It seems to be the case of figuring out the best way to bend over when (not if) you do get it from behind........
I can't believe Bell would not allow me to activate the CDMA part of the iphone 4s........what a waste of a versatile piece of hardware.
