Was it worth while getting the T-Mobile sim card for $50? I have not been able to get any use from it yet, although I might be able to call 911 in an emergency, but I think my Koodo card could have done that too. The first problem is speed. 2G speeds are ten times as slow as Koodos 3G. Also, coverage has often been missing. The result is that I have not yet been in a situation where I needed the internet, and actually waited for a successful download. Then, this morning, I tried calling home, thinking I might get some use out of the rest of my prepaid $50. But no, I was informed that my account did not have enough money to cover even one call to Canada.
But sometimes the Wifi is good, so I can use that. (But I dont need a plan for that) And I did make one local call so far, to see if a place was open.
