Most of the phones provided by the network operators in SA are the European model. Unfortunately, this means that the support of data bands differs from the North American models available in the US and Canada. This is particularly the case for the higher frequencies used by 4G/LTE. If you have a high-end phone bought in SA, you may not be pleased that certain networks aren't supported on the higher bands. If you don't care about 4G/LTE, then you have little cause for concern. However, if you are of the opinion that you spent R12k+ on your phone and you would like full use of its features, the following website can break down which networks support the data bands available on your cellphone. http://willmyphonework.net/ If you need to buy a phone before leaving SA, then you may want to bring in a North American model of your preferred phone.
http://www.zoomerwireless.ca Don't let the name put you off... This is a pretty good deal that I saw on RFD, so basically until the 29th of Feb you can get double the minutes and data when you sign up for a 2 year contract with them. Zoomer run on the Rogers network and from what I have read they have some of the best customer service out of all of the providers. So if you are looking for a basic contract: $36 will get you 400 minutes and 1GB of data now if you sign for 2 years, plus you get a phone (not an awesome one but still...). From what I have read the price will even stay fixed after the 24 months and if you choose to cancel you contract you will need to settle the balance of the "tab".
