The Nokia C3 is available at several locations: Rogers, Chatr, 7Eleven and now finds a spot at Petro-Canada. The price is $129 outright, or you can redeem 205,000 Petro-Points. Also if you buy 50 buck in airtime they’ll lower the cost to $89. The price is a bit on the high side considering with Chatr you can get it for $100, a free bluetooth and their plans are cheaper (plus Unlimited). Just saying there are options. The C3 has a full QWERTY keyboard, 2.4 inch display, MP3 Player, 2.0 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and holds up to 8 GB with microSD card.

    They call it “Paie-Trop-Canada” (Pay Too Much Canada) in French… :D

    That C3 almost always costs less with the Chatr route. SIM cards could be swapped to a certain network from a narrow choice.

    If they want to be a serious MVNO in light of PC Mobile, 7-Eleven and others, they ought to get truly unlimited talk, text and Internet.

    They should lower their mobile rates as they raise their gas rates.

    Ripoff, Chatr has it for much cheaper with better plans and dedicated Canadian customer service

    Finally they have what looks to be a decent texting phone. Long overdue. I was with them for over two and a half years and the service served my needs well but then when I started to text more, the number pad just didn’t cut it. I went with Petro-Canada instead of 7-11 Speakout Wireless at the time because the nearest 7-11 was like 10+ miles and I didn’t feel like driving to a 7-11 every time I wanted to top-up. A $25 top-up lasted 120 days and that was a pretty good deal. But I think you can top-up online with 7-11 Speakout now and their top-ups last 365 days. 7-11 also has the Nokia C3. Making Petro Canada Mobility irrelevant.
