When will MTS be offering Canada Wide Calling? We live close to the Man/Sask border and keep getting the Sask towers which constantly result in long distance charges on our cell phone. Your plans work fine if you live in Brandon or Winnipeg but for us, the results are extra charges on an already high priced package.

Hi! Sorry for the trouble, we have a few options that will provide Unlimited Canadian Long Distance. We would be glad to check out your account to see what would work best and check on your charges. Give us a call at 204-225-5687 so we can look into that for you.

I have an iPhone and you only have 3 packages for them. None of which come with Canada Wide Calling... your pick 5 won't work. I am already paying over $60 for the package with only the call display number only add-on for $9.00.  To get a long distance add-on its going to cost me another $20 per month.  We won't be using it enough to warrant that much of an additional cost.  Other providers are including call display, message center and Canada wide calling right in their packages that are complete for under $60 per month.  I was extremely upset on my last trip to BC having to pay for local calling. On return, I complained because with my little nothing flip phone that I had previous, all my local calls where free.  MTS response.... "You'll have to get a second cell phone".  Are you kidding!  Who has two cell phones.

Hi there, I'm sure we could find something that would work for you, unfortunately though I can't get your personal info over the forum. If you give us a shout at 204-225-5687 we can take a look at your account to see if something would work better.  We have a lot of plans and features to work from depending on your needs and would be glad to help you with this!
sorry?.... I have an iPhone.... MTS has 3 plans for the iPhone that are identical except for number of voice minutes and data amounts.  No... I'm not changing phones nor am I getting a second phone.  MTS needs to bring their packages up to speed with the rest of the carriers.  When will MTS be including call display, message center AND Canada wide calling in their iPhone packages?  I'm sure others would like to know as well.  My contract is up in November but I'm not really interested in changing from the iPhone.

All the new plans include call display and voicemail just go to a connect store and change your plan! You can also get unlimited calling, they offer way more than three plan choices!

If your contract is up in November, they will probably be able to put you on a non-iPhone plan, and you can keep your iPhone...
