Cellular or mobile telephones are a popular communications method in Nova Scotia. There are several major mobile service providers in the province, including Aliant, Rogers Wireless, Telus Mobility, and Virgin Mobile.
Mobile service comes in a variety of monthly and prepaid packages. You may be offered a free mobile phone in exchange for signing an agreement with a mobile service provider. Consider your options carefully and do some comparison-shopping before you commit to a mobile service provider.
Most mobile phone plans offer a fixed monthly allowance of minutes. If you exceed your time limit, extra fees must be paid. Extra services like text messaging, voice mail, call waiting, and mobile Internet are usually offered for additional fees.
To find a mobile service provider in your area, check the telephone directory Yellow Pages or visit Community Profiles.
