I understand that prepay gets the same plans as postpay with Wind, and
there's no setup fee. The n900 will also work on their network.

The whole cell phone industry is really pretty lame in Canada. If you do
get data, it's likely that a lot of ports are blocked.

Wind would be the best quick option that I know of - but I'm not an
expert on this. You should definitely go to a shop and ask about it.

It seems, you could get setup on Wind for $35 depending on your data
needs (50MB?).
