Best Canadian Cell Phone Provider?

Out of Rogers, Fido, Telus, Bell, Virgin, and Koodo, which is the best in terms of price and reception and service and all that?

I've never gotten a cell phone before and I am looking to get one now, but don't know who to choose. I know there is more to a provider than their prices, so I wanted to get user opinions.

Please comment with which and why. :)

Fido, because it sounds like a dog.

I can't say whether they are the best or not (as I have no experience with any other provider), but I've been with Virgin Mobile for about 4 years and it's worked very well for me so far.
I find their prices very reasonable, the plans are flexible (whether you're on contract or pay-as-you go, you can add or remove features monthly; this can really come in handy), and I have always received great service.
The only negative thing I've encountered is that when I need to call them (which has only happened 3 times in 4 years) I'm always on hold for about an hour before I can speak with someone). This is inconvenient, but not enough that I'd consider switching.

Couldn't tell you as:
1). Don't live in Canada
2). Don't have a cell phone

I'm not Canadian, so I have no idea. Virgin is the only one of these that's available in the US.

I'm sorry I don't know; this is the first I've heard of any of these providers, except Virgin.

I'm with Rogers and I dislike most providers anyway. Fido is owned by Rogers and when I wanted to upgrade my phone; Fido didn't have the model I wanted so I switched to Rogers and they charged me for breaking the contract! smiley:::rolls eyes That's abusive practices... They're all rats with confusing packages that they modify at will. When I started with Rogers, I told them - give me the works so I don't have surprises at the end of the month. As long as I know the price, I'll balance it in my budget. Less than a month later, I was getting information from them about how I can lower my rate if I took such and such service added. *sigh*

I've only used Rogers and it was OK for me. I cannot compare however.

I've been with Fido for twelve years now. I'm very happy with them.
