What You Need To Know

Petro-Canada Mobility uses the Rogers network to deliver 3G and 4G mobile service across the country. All plans include Canada-wide calling so you don’t have to worry about long distance fees. Topping off is easy as well with both online access or top-off cards at any Petro-Canada location.

You will prepay for all services. Both pay-as-you-go and monthly bundles are available. Bundles start at just $15 with the most expensive bundle running $100 before add-ons and fees.

Although Petro-Canada doesn’t sell a large selection of phones, the ones they sell appear to be solid options. However, you won’t find any device financing options or subsidies. If you’d prefer to bring your own device, their 3-in-1 SIMs take the guesswork out of finding the right option for your mobile device.

What’s Good?

  • Both PAYG and monthly bundle options
  • No contracts or credit checks
  • All talk plans are Canada-wide
  • All plans include unlimited Canada-wide texting

What’s Bad?

  • No phone financing
  • No international roaming
  • Low data caps
  • Tethering prohibited

  • Canada-wide Calling: No need to worry about zones or provinces with Petro Canada as all plans include calling anywhere in the country.
  • Petro-Canada Mobility Rewards: Earn Petro-Points rewards for every dollar you spend on service.

Awards and Recognitions

How’s the Network Coverage and Speed?

Petro-Canada Mobility uses the Rogers network. This means you get the coverage and speeds of a big carrier with the costs of a smaller prepaid option!

You can check coverage and network types in your area at the Petro-Canada Mobility support page.

The 2016 PC Magazine study “Fastest Mobile Networks in Canada,” showed download speeds for the Rogers network averaging 43Mb/sec and upload speeds averaging 22Mb/sec.

Ookla’s “Speed Test Market Report Canada” reports slightly slower speeds. Their 2016 tests showed download speeds of 29MB/sec and upload speeds of 10Mb/s.

Do They Charge Roaming Fees?

All bundles include coverage from coast to coast. Roaming outside of Canada is not allowed using Petro Canada.

If you’re travelling out of the country, we recommend using a travel SIM or picking up a cheap prepaid SIM to use with an unlocked phone when you reach your destination.

What About Long Distance Fees?

All calls within Canada are billed at local rates or from your monthly bundle allotment.

Calls outside Canada are subject to a long distance calling fee as follows:

  • North American long distance: $0.55 per minute
  • Text messages to US numbers: $0.15 per text
  • Text messages to international numbers: $0.35 per text

You can find out more by clicking “See Full Details” on the Monthly Plan page.

Does Petro-Canada Offer Wi-Fi Calling?

No. Petro-Canada does not support native Wi-Fi calling or offer a Wi-Fi calling app.

How About Voice over LTE (VoLTE)?

No.

Can I Tether My Phone?

Tethering is not allowed on Petro-Canada Mobility.

In their Terms and Conditions, they state:

“Petro-Canada Mobility Plans Cannot be Used for:

i. access to the Internet, intranets, or other data networks except as the device’s native applications and capabilities permit, or

ii. any applications that tether your device to a laptop or personal computer other than for the use of Wireless Sync.”

Do They Offer Data Rollover?

No any data from monthly bundles expires at the end of the month.

Do They Offer Add-ons or Bundles?

No--outside of the ability to customize your monthly bundle plan, there are no additional features you can add to your plan.

Can I Bring My Own Device?

Yes! Most unlocked devices with support for the 850 and 1900Mhz bands work with Petro-Canada Mobility. You’ll need to order a SIM and activate it to start service.

For more information, consult their Phones & SIMs support page.

Do They Require A Contract?

No. As all services are prepaid, you are free to quit using the service at any time.

What About Early Termination Fees?

No. Without a contract or device financing options, there’s no worries about fees if you cancel.

Can I Port My Number To or From Petro-Canada Mobility?

Petro-Canada Mobility follows all Wireless Number Portability guidelines allowing you to transfer your number from an existing landline or mobile line to your new Petro-Canada Mobility line of service.

Requirements are as follows:

  • The account from which you are transferring the number must be assigned to the same name and address as your Petro-Canada Mobility account.
  • The account you’re transferring from must be in good standing--including payment of any fees resulting from porting the number.
  • The number you’re transferring must be local to your service area.

For additional information, consult their Number Portability page.

Will They Unlock My Phone?

All Petro-Canada phones are sold unlocked. If you need assistance unlocking a phone from another carrier, consult our other Carrier Summaries for contact information and unlocking terms.

2nd day tried to call customer service. After 30 minutes I got CUT OFF and the line disconnected.  So I tried 2nd time. 45 minute wait, no one answers!  Very bad service!  I think they just gave up staffing their helpdesk altogether.


My account is expiring tomorrow and I have now way to top it up! Well done Petro Mobile.  It would seem like your website is mission critical if that is your primary way of account administration.


Avoid if you have the choice.

Terrible customer service

Billed twice (on two consecutive days) for top up even though its supposed to be automatic. The service agents are useless and refuse any credit.

Customer service knows nothing

MMS not supported on iPhones. Have to use a website in New Zealand to get iPhone data to work. What a joke!

I have had to call their customer service line multiple times. They have the absolute worst service. The reps are not empowered to do anything but read from a script and aggravate the situation. When you ask to speak to a manager you have to leave a message and they will call you back within 1-3 business days and they only work M-F 9-5. In their voicemail message they actually say if you swear or yell on your message they won't call you back.  Classic case that you pay one way or another.  At the moment I am waiting for someone to call me back as I have been over charged $135 in the last 6 months and I want that money credited back to my account.   Less

Non existent customer service

I got this plan a couple of months ago.  But when you top up your plan you got to wait for 6 hours to activate.  If not your previous month's plan minutes continues and you will not be covered for the full month.  I lost my half of my monthly plan due to this and couldn't use the phone for the rest of the month even after I paid in full.  This is ridiculous.  One can wait for maximum for an hour to activate, but for six hours.  First of all, why we keep a cell phone?  To be used whenever we want to.  If there's an emergency during that 6 hour period what do I do? Call 911????   I bought this plan to contact my children who are far away from home. Otherwise I don't need one at all.  Plus I don't have a home phone either. This is the only mode of communication whatsoever.  But otherwise the coverage is very good. Price is right. Reasonable. Good service, no breaks.
