After having taken over my wife's phone which is with Bell, I started looking at seeing about getting a couple extra features, call display and voice mail. Simple enough. $12 per month for the cheapest bundle including those two features. Separately they are $8 per month, each. Omigosh. $8 per month, each. I actually can't believe that is legal. For someone trying to keep expenses in check that's like more money per month to see who's calling them I'm likely going to spend on lettuce this month. And I like lettuce, we eat a lot of it!

You can be sure that once this contract gets down to a reasonable buy out price. I'm going to be switching to the next closest network that can give me these very basic features for a monthly price that doesn't make me feel like I'm being swindled. Currently that appears to be Koodoo.
