    I am currently on the Koodo SK/MB plan and loving it!

    It was reported on CBC and some douche in TO is charging $100 on Kijiji to provide a "service" to help people jump on this plan.

    If you're not on this plan, I would jump on it ASAP before they close up the loophole.

    No, I am pretty sure you would have to do the entire process again. I could be wrong though.

    BTW, anyone wanting to switch to TELUS, I believe I can save them $10 a month off their rate plan .

    Even with getting a new phone, it's still cheaper than I'm paying with Rogers ffs.. and I can't use LTE here in coventry because it keeps dropping the first incoming call until her phone flips back to 3G because the Rogers LTE here blows goatdick.
    LTE doesn't carry voice at all, and a phone will display a drop to HSPA or 3G for a voice call. LTE is strictly data only as of right now.

    That's cool, I didn't know they had enabled that.

    Carrier update should fix that cause i'm pretty sure the phones have been capable since iPhone 5?

    edit: While iphone 5 supports some wideband voice protocols ( which have never been implemented) it doesn't support VoLTE. That came with 6 and 6+ apparently.

I will add voicemail for $2 and then port my AB number to it tomorrow. Hopefully, it all works out! From talking to the guy, it sounds like you can just update your biijg address to an SK addy then you can access the cheaper plan. One of my coworkers is going to try that with his kids line.

    Spikers, I would have used your offer but even with your discount and bundling, I'd still be looking at $110 a month for the same plan.
    The SK$48 plan should already include voicemail, so no need to spend the extra $2 a month

    So $100 for 4 GB of shared data? The SK plan would be $98 for 10 GB / 5 each, but no free S6, hmm.

    I personally would take the extra 6 GB and buy my own S6, phones can be changed out but getting those extra GB's is tough.

    I think Fido offers a similar plan.
