A disposable cell phone available in Canada ? Some would say it is not a disposable, but I disagree

The other day I was shopping and I decided I needed a cell phone. Somebody told me that I can get a PC (Presidents Choice) cell phone for under $ 70.00 and the phone belongs to me.

It would be a "pay as you go". There are no options to get into a contract. I do not want a contract anyways.

Included in the phone purchase is a $ 10.00 credit for airtime.

Call display and call answer are also included with the purchase of the phone at no extra charge.

There is no connection fee or start up fee either.

When I wanted the phone started up, I phoned the toll free number and got issued a phone number and got my phone activated. The operator asked for my name and address, but I could have said any address or name.

This phone is good for people who just want one for emergencies or short conversations.

It is also good for people who may want discretion for any reason.

It would be good for ladies on AdultFriendFinder who want to talk on the phone with a person, but may not trust them enough for them to know their permanent phone numbers.

If you are someone who sends a lot of text messages and you like to talk several minutes a day on your cell, it will cost you more than a phone on contract, but sometimes discretion has no price.

Great post, Steve. This is some very good information. You should consider posting this in the "Dating Safety" section of the Magazine.

Thanks for the tip. I will check it out today sometime.

In my opinion, this phone is very cheap.

If you walk in a cell phone place and ask for a phone for a "pay as you go" plan, you will be paying a lot more money. They might charge you extra for call display and call answer too.

I was discussing this phone with a friend and we figured out if you go into a cell phone place and you want a phone on a contract, you might have to spend up to $ 70.00 or more before you even have your first conversation.

Good idea, Steven.

It just leads me to wonder if women are using this must discretion with who they give their phone number to, what are they doing when it comes to actually meeting someone off AdultFriendFinder for the first time?

I mentioned in the adlines ages about using a prepay phone for initial contacts with members from online sites.

The general consensus then was that it was a brill idea, i still use one now when im wary about people.

Although once i get to know someone i give my real phone number out.

There is a site that sends out free sim cards for mobile phones.

They are the genie O2 cards....works in England but unsure of anywhere else.

I have a pile of about 20 because when i see them free i order up to 5 in one go. I give them to friends for their kids or when i get a new contract phone each year i place a pre pay sim in the phone & sell the old phone on.

You cannot be 100 % safe, but you can reduce the risks by using your head.

I would hope that all people would first meet in a public place.

It is good advice.
