    Default Discuss cellphone plans

    I know this gets discussed pretty often, but doesn't seem to be a consolidated place for it.

    I'm looking for a new cell phone plan or two, either to use as leverage with Telus retentions or to actually switch to. Can be BYOD or include new phone, contract or not. Must have 1gb data per user and free texting. Don't care about minutes.

    Anyone have suggestions?

    Fido has the 10GB data plan on still the last I checked. Most people only really care about data but I am not sure if you do or not with your 1GB minimum requirement.

    If you are in the BYOD camp, the best thing to do is be always looking for plans and keep switching to a better plan when it comes out - eventually you will 'ratchet' yourself into a phenomenal plan that you will never want to give up. That's what I've always done anyway.

    All the 10GB plans seem to be back up in the $90 price range.

    Freedom Mobile looks to be your only bargaining chip.

    I would say Public Mobile. 40$ for 4.5 GB (3G but LTE is available for more $) and unlimited Canada Wide Calling.

    My wife was with them for a few years but got offered a migration plan 8 gb for 40$ (25$ for the first year) with koodo so she switched. No contracts.

    Last week, Fido and Koodo both had $75 BYOD 10GB plans - pretty standard but still cheaper than those in the $90-100 range.

    If you're okay switching carriers, I would recommend Public Mobile though ^^^^ prepaid service, usually around $40-45 for 4GB and then wait to get an 'exclusive offer" text from Koodo to migrate over.. (usually comes after a few months).

    Good rate plan offers can be had throughout the year, but if you're looking for hardware upgrades BF and BD is usually the way to go. Historically, BF has had better deals than BD.

    I got the same deal except a month or two ago there was a deal on Redflag where if you called in to Rogers they gave you an extra 3GB of data for free. So 13GB for $60. I heard Rogers may (or has?) be raising these plans by $5.

    I'm not saying to use the service. As discussed in a previous thread, you should (in theory) be able to do this yourself. But these are basically koodo special offers.

    These are koodo plans. Haven't seen anything yet that really tops them. And being on the Telus/Bell network is the bees knees cause fuuuuuuck rogers.

    That sounds worth investigating.

    I havent read anywhere about reviews with them, or their previous incarnation.

    They want to know your login info when you sign up then change it from within. Sounded sketchy to me

    Get an out of province Koodo plan. 49$ for unlimited talk text and 6gb data.

    And the services to get you on the plan work fine. You have to pay 10$ for a sim, and they charged 50-75$ to make the changes on your account. Overall takes about 2 weeks (because you have to wait 15 days for the first Bill so you donít get flagged).

    Just put a dummy password on your account, once everythingís done then charge the password and your fine.

    Edit: Iíve used phonesavings.ca for myself and 3 others now. Not sure if theyíre still around. The only caviet is you canít do a large tab on the plan (May have changed but thatís how it was last year. Itís either BYOD or get a small/medium tab phone.

    pheoxs basically explained it. While pricey at the $100 I paid, it has easily saved me $600 since I switched a year ago, and the process was super straightforward. Well worth what I paid, no hassle, no "is this going to work", just follow the directions and boom, done.

    Yeah, and just to clarify when I used it, I didn't pay until after it was completed. They sent me the steps and what I needed to go get at the koodo kiosk, then sent them my login with a temp password, waited the couple weeks and got a message saying its all done. Logged into my koodo account, verified it all looked good, changed the password, then etransfered them.
