It'll work anywhere there is a (Telus) cellphone signal. It [i]should even work for 24 hrs without power, but I've never tested that claim.

This would be cheaper, unlimited minutes for $20/month vs $40/month

And you could argue with the cops that it is not a mobile device you are conversing on!

Might work for a while until the system figures out that according to it's geolocation records, you're living in a "mobile home".

I have been searching for that answer, and not found anything yet....  What is the problem with using it in a mobile home ???   To this point, I could not find anything in the Q&A addressing  "geolocation records"  and the use in traveling ....  for example, if it is used at home every morning, and at a cottage, every afternoon in the summer ???   If there is a good list of overall rules, please post a link ....

No your good, you can bring it to the cottage for the weekend and then back home again so I'm sure you can use it how you please. Worth a try for $50 I mean you can't go wrong if it works for ya.

Thankyou for the replies ...  I really need to know what they refer to
in  "geolocation records"  and what is the status to use it in a mobile home which is moving a lot on a trip ....

No reason you couldn't use it as your desk phone in a motor home, or other RV, while in Canada.

BobTheElectrician are you implying that a system that can't even prevent people from porting non-QC numbers onto QC plans has the ability to figure out you are moving around with the wireless home phone?

I wonder how many decades it will take for this double posting bug to be fixed.
