If you’re not already on a contract with a carrier, finding the right phone plan can be a bit of a challenge.

If you’re simply looking for the cheapest plan, we typically recommend avoiding the larger carriers (Telus, Rogers, and Bell), and looking at smaller carriers like Koodo, Virgin, Chatr, Public Mobile, or Fido.

If you aren’t sure where to start we recommend using PlanHub, which is a free contract comparison tool. Just remember to select “Bring your own phone”!
