请问silor:将国内购买的CDMA手机带到加拿大是否可以入网？有何要求？在当地购买大概需要多少钱？入网后每月费用包括哪些？谢谢！ -solomon(Russ) 2000-6-10应无法在加拿大用。在加拿大手机从免费的（要签一年合约）到2，300元的都有，月费有20元，可打200分钟，或更多的。也是双向收费，但回到家或公司时，关机后转到有线电话时（FORWARD）则免费。 -yangxz72(Dannyyang) 2000-6-13Motorola L2000在Toronto能用吗？ -andrewhuang(andrewhuang) 2000-6-19 -jimmyzxz(jimie) 2000-6-29Danny, Can you let me know which company your current service provider is? -sailor(Sailor) 2000-6-29About cell phone service in Canada. Currently there're 5 major cell phone companies: Bell, Rogers AT&T (Cantel), Tellus, Fido, Clearnet.
From the ads, we got to know that it's almost impossible to purchase the service without buying a handset from the same company. Each company uses only certain models and certain brands of handset, and they do not provide SIM-card-only service. For example, Nokia 5190 is only sold by Fido, other companies sell different models of Nokia, but not 5190. Errison T18Z is sold by both Fido and Cantel, but both of them don't provide handset-trade-in service.
In this case, I don't think bringing a handset from China is useful.
BTW, the cheapest handset here is $50, usually you can buy a satified one from $100 to $225. If you convert these prices into RMB, you will find they're quite cheap. As a result, I suggest you to sell your handset in China, buy a brand new one after you come to Canada. -sailor(Sailor) 2000-6-29About cell phone service in Canada.
