    The slow migration of Bell and Telus to GSM is seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. They will be turning on their GSM networks shortly. According to the GSMA Bell will go live this month and Telus is due to launch in October.

    bellGSM The details on Howard Forums also mention that the following BlackBerrys will be coming to the carriers:

    Bell:

    • BlackBerry Bold 9000
    • BlackBerry Bold 9700

    Telus:

    • BlackBerry Bold 9700

    Should be interesting to see how this all pans out and how it compares to Rogers lineup when all is said and done.

    Wow! As a T-Mo user in the US, when I go home to Canada I keep my 8900 off because I HATE Rogers, and don’t want to give them a penny. When I am around wifi (family and friend’s houses) my 8900 is on T-Mobile again, woo hoo! If Bell and Telus turn on GSM, then I’ll consider roaming on one of their networks, hopefully Telus’!

    Dream: Telus and T-Mo play nice to partner up and allow me to switch from one network to the other painlessly and without charges. Could be? Could be?

    Your right to hate Rogers, they are a money sucking bunch of wankers. Absolutely terrible service in every capacity. I hope Bell will force them to put their contracts in perspective but they’re all out to screw the little guy. I envy US carriers, at least they try to be fair to their customers as opposed to Canada where your wallet gets drained.

    Hate to be the one to burst your “bubble”, but you don’t actually make any money for the local carriers when you roam. The carriers don’t do charge backs between them (the system to monitor it would cost more than the delta of $ changing hands). So, yes, the startling truth is that those massive data roaming charges you pay are straight gravy for all of the carriers.

    So, hate them all – this is a universal practice amongst them.
