Back in Canada's pre-wireless Code of Conduct days, it was costlier to get an unlocked phone to dodge devastating roaming bills. Not so anymore, although it's up to consumers to how to save on their cell phone bill when they travel.

Gillian, you can get $15 unlimited US roaming (voice, data, text) with Wind, even with their $30 plan still cheaper than any of the big 3's plans.

Question is will Ottawa let Verizon buy into Canadian wireless market and how much ownership stake would it take?

Even just the potential of Verizon showing up should cause plenty of shivering in their collective boots for Telus, Bell and Rogers.  Even Verizon might show the big three how to simplify their services. (I don't care much about price -- give me simplicity!)

Like Goldilocks' mama bear, smartphone companies are looking for the size that is 'just right.'

The CRTC's insistence that wireless carriers unlock phones so consumers aren't bound to one carrier is probably the best news for consumers out of this announcement. There's worry that subsidized cell phone prices will rise with two-year agreements but no one is asking why US customers pay about the same for phones on two-year contracts as Canadians pay with their three-year contracts.

It's a good step, but Canadian consumers need more consumer protection on all fronts. This can be a great stepping stone to get some real rights and protections against companies hell bent on overcharging the overly polite people of Canada. I'm looking at you Shaw, Rogers, Bell, and Telus TV.
