Last Xmas I visited the Ottawa area and brought my spare iPhone 3G. I purchased prepaid service at a mall kiosk. Once I configured the phone, voice calls and SMS worked well, but data never really worked. I could receive coupla KB, but then it would fail. I've read that the iPhone 3G never correctly worked with Koodo. (It does work correctly with AT&T south of the border.)
I'm returning to Ontario for a visit and would like Koodo service again. If the iPhone 3G still won't receive data, I have other spare phones: a Lumia 520, Samsung A777, and even a Blackberry 8750. I'd be prepared to buy an unlocked iPhone 3GS locally if that would work. What I like about the iPhone is that it's easy to install the SIM card. The other phones that I have require partial disassembly to install the SIM.
What do y'all recommend? Thanks much.
