The Moto X Play only launched in Canada a few days ago, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pick it up on a decent deal already. Koodo Mobile is currently offering new customers a Moto 360 smartwatch or a $100 bonus credit when purchasing a Moto X Play on a Tab plan.

Sony Canada has revealed some bad news for its fans today by announcing via its Facebook page that it has ‘no current plans‘ to bring either the Xperia Z4 Tablet or the Xperia Z3+ smartphone to the country. We have the full statement after the break.
On July 15, T-Mobile customers will be able to travel throughout three countries in North America and not be slammed with any roaming fees. The carrier announced Mobile Without Borders as its next step for being aggressive in the wireless industry, providing coverage to customers in Mexico and Canada in addition to the United States at no extra charge. Customers located in the former two countries will be able to place calls, send/receive texts, and utilize T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network just as they would in the United States.
Canadian carrier Telus has announced that they will be raising the unlock fee for devices on their network by $15 starting on July 7th. This move raises the unlock fee to $50, bringing it in line with Rogers and Bell.

I’m not entirely sure how that works, but since it looks like the standard pricing going forward, I don’t think anyone in Canada will have much of a choice there. Read more

Cricket has added a new feature to their monthly plans that will help users that need to communicate across the border with their cell phones. The carrier has baked in international calling and texting to Canada to their monthly plans, which already included communication to Mexico. Since their monthly plans already include unlimited talk and text, it won’t cost anything extra to send some texts up north without worrying about overages or hidden fees. Read more
