Hello Hermel.

To answer your question, I don't think so. There's no company that is offering this for a cellphone. Because usually, the primary use of a cellphone is to make calls. The only possibility you could get is to take the cheapest plan with data available. Which would be the 20$ plans plus the data saver. Or you could go prepaid with a data booster.

If you really want to have only data, you should look for an internet dongle.

Not true. Koodo seems to be the only company not offering data-only plans.

All you need to do to have data only on your phone is to get a tablet plan from the competition. This SIM can be used in a phone even though they market it as a "tablet SIM). I'm speaking from experience.

Be forewarned that you can still call and text, but without a phone plan the rates tend to be as high as $1/min and $0.50/SMS.

the closest thing you could get would be koodo prepaid with only data boosters.

You will however still be paying a base of $15/month which gives you free texting, something you may not care about.
