Re: PROMO: $35 2GB Plan Limited Time Offer

Exactly.  The promotion should have been same like last year or even better but not what it is now. I don't really see any benefits

Type the @ symbol and select one of the names that pops up (like i did above this line) so we know which response you are referring to with each comment.

 

None of the current versions of the $35 plan at the moment are the best deal at PM but if 1Gb of data just isn’t ever enough for someone but they would never exceed 2Gb of Data, the $35 plan is “the Greatest”! It fills a niche but isn’t going to win a popularity contest with large numbers of customers at the moment.

Last month my wife got a targeted-offer (via a text message) to switch from her current $25/1Gb plan to $35 for 3Gb. Of course we jumped on it. Her plan just switched to the new plan yesterday so now she has 3Gb/unlimited CA voice/ Int'l text for $35.

 

IMHO, this is a good price point and usability for a phone plan. Wish every Carrier would have this as an option.

 

@vn33  That was a smart move by your wife to snag that offer as thats what the $35 plan should have is 3gb. It should be as follows $25/1gb, $30/2gb, $35/3gb $40/5gb $50/8.5gb.

Depends on your needs and preferences of consuming cell service. I wish there was a basic, minimum charge for the privilege of having an account. And then consumable add-ons for talk, text, data. Add-ons stay on until consumed. No wasting of paid-for features.


@z10user4  We essentially have that now with the $15 plan. It's $10 plan fee + $5 for texting, incoming calling, 100 minutes outgoing and a very basic 250mb data plan. You then have the choice of 3 calling minutes add ons @ $5/500min Canada wide, $8/200min US&Canada, $15/400min US&Canada+18 international countries and the $10/200mb and $15/1gb data add ons. That essentially covers what youre asking for the only thing it doesnt allow you to have would be a calling only plan with the $10 plan fee + $5/500 min calling add on.

Nope...that's still an obligation to pay $15. My suggestion is about keeping the obligation to a minimum. And you "waste" paying for unlimited incoming and texting when you only use so much. And you might "waste" some paid outgoing minutes and paid data.

There's no waste in add-ons. It's close to pay as you go but not quite.

Re: PROMO: $35 2GB Plan Limited Time Offer

@z10user4    And im back.....yes there might be wastage but the vast majority of us use texting so if you priced it at the lowest you can $0.01 per text or $5/500 texts the $5 charged for unlimited texts, unlimited incoming calling, 100 calling minutes and 250mb of data is a bargain even at a "pay per use" no wastage plan you envision. Unless its a low use emergency phone a normal user will still use close to $5 worth of services or would happily pay for what you get in that $5.

 

Under your vision....100 texts would be $1, 100 in/out calls=$1, 100mb data=$1.50 total=$3.50

Pm's $15 plan..........unlimited texts/incoming calls, 100 outgoing min, 250mb data total=$5

 

Unless it was as stated an emergency use only phone or you were completely vigilant with its usage the most one would save assuming everyone knows not to text you might be $3 but for most that would be a giant headache to save the price of a timmy's coffee. I think the only waste in your plan would be your money and your peace of mind and I think that's worth more than $3!

Your account has been freed from jail!


 @z10user4 

I bet something like the $10 is back eventually. Everything Cellular slowly gets lower in price. Depends too much on the competition. When Telus changed their Pay & Talk plans significantly two years ago I was able to get both sets of our parents onto $3 / 5 minutes a month plans where overage I believe is 50c/minute. None of them have exceeded the limit in two years! And, I haven’t put $ onto their accounts in close to 4 years as even when it was still $10/month they were allowing people to suspend top ups to burn off accumulated funds built up in accounts. They each had over $200 built up. I think they will hit $0 very early next year so have to decide between $10/3 months, $25/8 months or $100/ 3 years! I exaggerate a little, there is 75c 911 off each month as well as the $3.

Still not seeing it or your numbers. I have admitted on several occasions that I'm a low-use customer. Not emergency/senior.

I would suggest numbers along the lines of $5 a term for the privilege of being a customer, $5 for 500 texts, keep the $5 500 minutes, keep the $15 1gb (if not even less). All add-ons that behave as current add-ons.

Right now, the $10 plan that you and I have is pretty good. Except for the texting. (although there are workarounds)
