Traveling on a budget. I want to know what the cost is for data usage. And what I can and shouldn't do on my phone. While I'm away from home.

Hey Matthew,
The answer to your question depends greatly on the plan you are on.  Regarding data specifically if you are on one of our older plans you would have 300 or 400 MB of data to use Canada wide, if you are on the new My Plan the data on your plan is Canada wide.  As for calling that gets a little more complicated.  If you are in Vancouver, and calling a Vancouver number it's a local call.  However if you call back home to Manitoba it would be long distance, and the long distance fees would again depend on your plan.
If you want a more specific answer that relates directly to your plan you could give our wireless sales department a call, or you can reach them via webchat on the MTS.ca support site found HERE, just click the "Chat now" link that pops up on the right.

Also keep in mind there are reportedly some older smartphone plans that include unlimited Canada wide data as do some business plans. It is really hard to say exactly what you can do when travelling. In the future it is best to check before you leave what is included with your plan.
