You could also consider a phone which allows Wi-Fi calling, and operate it on the Telus network. This would give additional options when working at fixed locations in underserved communities.

Thanks everyone for your answers! David, could you elaborate on the Wi-fi calling please? I have been an iPhone user FOREVER and can only relate this to Facetime/Facetime audio. I assume that most android smartphones can just use apps such as Skype, viber, and WhatsApp to make phone calls using wifi. Or is there something else that works?

Wi-Fi calling allows you to continue to use your phone in its normal fashion when connected to Wi-Fi, but have poor cellular connectivity.  It is an automatic process, and if somewhere without cell service (like my basement) the phone switches to Wi-Fi, and calls and texts are received as if you were on the cellular network. This can be a very useful tool if you depend on your cell hone as your primary means of contact, and are in location where (with a few exceptions) Wi-Fi is available. No need to use other apps.  It works as transparently as does FaceTime, and would be a real bonus for folks travelling to remote, but connected, offices.

No it's not FaceTime/Skype. It's something else. Calling through wi-fi to all phone instead of normal calling.

Here's all you need to know about wi-fi calling : https://www.cnet.com/news/what-you-need-to-know-about-wifi-calling/

Enjoy your day.
