I need a new phone but want to keep my #. I currently pay $26/month (with bell - no contract) no data (I use wifi). Do you have a similar plan?
If you're a very light phone user and generally only text with WiFi, prepaid might even be a better option for you. The $15 base plan gives you Unlimited international messaging. Then you add a voice booster for talk. The nice thing about boosters is they don't expire as long as your base plan is kept topped up.
I second that you should check out prepaid. If you do go post paid have a look at putting the data block on your phone when you activate. That way you don't accidentally use data resulting in an unexpected charge. A downside to prepaid is the phones can be more expensive, but have a look at what the total cost would be over two years.
