This will sound extremely stupid but is a base plan necessary? I recently activated my prepaid sim card and my bill was 15$ base plan. Is it possible to just pay for calling minutes rather than also paying for texting&pictures.

A base plan is indeed necessary.

If you're looking just to pay for minutes check out TELUS prepaid. You can use the same phone without unlocking and you'd need to buy a TELUS sim card but you can pay as little as 10$ per month. Only caveat is EVERYTHING is piece meal and you must top up at least 10$ monthly. And the calls are rather expensive at 50 cents per minute.
