Cell Phone plans

Post by euro4ever » Tue Sep 20, 2011 6:00 pm

Hey guys,

Just trying to see what I should be paying for monthly plans.

I got quoted.

300 daytimemin

unlimited after 6pm & weekends

unlimited texting

caller id.

for like 35$ not including tax.


I was paying 31 tax in for something similar.

But they told me that they no longer will be giving me any more freebies of which I had & that my contract was too RICH and they were not making much money on me.. LOL..LOL

Just wanna know what's a fair price.

I still feel I can do better then the 35$ they quoted me.

:lol: They are lying to you that they dont make money from your plan. Who did you have before and who told you that?

Canada has like the highest cell phone rates in the world. We pay too much for internet too.

Canada always had unbelievably shit deals, Rogers and Bell ask over 200 a month for some plans. :lol:

My plan with Rogers:

$55
-unlimited canada/usa wide
-unlimited voice/text plan

I go over 1000 minutes a month so this plan is very good for me otherwise I wouldve been paying up the ass :!:

I also like the fact I dont have to worry about "minutes". Just call whoever the fuck I want from anywhere :!:

The thing with Wind though is that it is relatively new in Canada, and thus doesn't have as much of a range like Rogers and Bell does. Wind covers alot of Southern Ontario, Ottawa, Montreal, Edmonton&Calgary and Greater Vancouver, which is good enough for me because honestly I am never leaving Toronto, but if you are in some small town.. Well I'd do some research first.

If you are thinking of getting a new phone/contract, check Wind now and you may get the same contract I did. (It was a promotion, think it ends at the end of this month)

PG needs to elaborate more what he means by those unlimited minutes. I heard that it only applies within the Toronto area because Wind covers it and does it also mean only between WIND to WIND mobiles....

Its not all cracked up to be :wink:

Unlimited minutes in all of Canada, and rather cheap in WIND supported USA areas.

Unlimited texts in Canada and USA too (Or USA is very cheap? Can't remember everything. :lol:)

I'd wager elsewhere costs more.

It is $37 + tax. I'm sure there are better deals minutes wise, but not many companies offer unlimited sms internationally at a half decent price, if at all.
