One of the first things you need when you arrive in Canada is a cell phone (or, for all you European readers, a mobile!).
In the era of Google Maps, Amazon, Uber, and all the other millions of services you can get at the touch of a button, smartphones have become an integral part of our daily lives. Think about it: How many times have you picked up your phone since you woke up this morning?
When it comes to devices that we spend so much time with every day, you want to be sure you’re ready to select the best option you can get in Canada.
In fact, you can even research your options before you arrive.
In this article, we review one of the major questions you’ll have to answer when choosing a Canadian phone plan: do you want a prepaid plan or a monthly contract? We’re going to explain the difference between the two and help you understand which one is a better fit for your needs.
