    Too good to be true? It is … Mobilicity only covers small portion of Toronto i.e. Oakville, Pickering, Ajax and the outskirts, etc not covered at all. So, for 99% of the Ontario market be prepared to be killed with the roaming charges of 20c/min WOW! If you happen to be in 3.5G Happy Toronto area, well make sure you don’t leave it cuz, ya know, be prepared to see nice digits on your bill. Having said that…Good Luck to Mobilicity and I wish them fast success and quick expansion as we need more serrious, client oriented carriers in this country of ours. Oh Canada,…

  • Raul Trujillo

    Would this phone work on T-Mobile? Can I purchase it from Mobilicity and use it on T-Mobile?

  • Steven

    LMAO! Poor Canada! Google already stopped selling the N1 in the US. Im sorry guys! I feel bad

  • Dave

    @Raul, Yup. Mobilicity uses the same 3G frequencies as T-Mobile, so it should work there.
    .
    @Steven, You mean poor US? For my money, the Nexus One is still the best Android device going. We’re lucky that we can buy it here.

  • mindo

    Mobilicity is awesome, so is Wind and the other new carriers. Their roaming charges are less than Robbers, Telus and Bells regular cost/min!!! $65/months lets you basically talk, text, and surf all f’n day long. Try that on the the other guys and you’ll get one of their famous mortgage size bills. Screw them all.

    Wind & Mobilicity are doing us sorry ass canadians a big service, if you were smart u’d be on it.

    ps: N1 from mobilicity will work on t-mo.

  • Steven

    @Dave

    The best is only based on what you want out of a device. Plus, a device is only as capable as the carrier backing it up. I do agree its one hell of a good phone, but…it is aging quickly. 1.3ghz phones are already on there way!

  • DarkDroid

    This is a device that will cost a lot of money and there is no discount…it’s poor coverage, it’s like wind mobile only the ontario version, I think I will still wait for koodo to get an android device and then go from there.

  • Fred

    Mobilicity is a joke.

    Their coverage is still limited to the the inner city area of Toronto. Hardly a new national network to give the telcos competition.

    They have no announced plans of expanding anytime soon either so who cares.

  • xarophti

    AAAARRRRGGGHHH!!!!

  • John

    Its not a joke for those who actually live and work within the covered areas! The plans are definitely better than what big 3 offers. More competition is good – what are you complaining about?

    All of this applies to Wind as well, obviously.
