First you ll use your plan minutes and data, once they have been used up in 30 days then you ll start using these minutes and data (bonus) 

Lets say you are on $25 plan with unlimited calling and 1GB data.

then your international minutes will be used calling the included countries other than Canada.


For data you ll use 1GB of plan data first then you dig in your bonus data. Lets say you used 1.5GB total in one month then next month you ll have 1GB of plan data and 1.5 GB of bonus data available to you.

Nice snag, @Triguy

Read all of the above posts for your answer.


By then it will be getting very close to December 31 so there won’t be much time left to contact the CSA’s!.




Doesn't likely matter as this will be merged into the 160 page topic and any solutions awarded will disappear.

@AE_Collector   sad  😞




@AE_Collector @softech 


I know, not a big deal.


That thread has become a monster hasn't it?

@Anonymous :I got old data only plans no talk/text and I was somehow able to send text back to reply and get the Christmas gift👍

@HALIMACS it's not too bad now.. we were thinking it might hit 200.. but it slowed down a lot.. unless we get another wave of NO TEXT after Dec 15.. it might not reach 200..


Which one is the longest thread here ever?


(haha.. i lost couple solutions from the merge too.. but no big deal as you said.. i guess "the one" who like to answer Contact CSA got lost the most.. lol)

Hi @villellamcmeans ,   so replying this short code would still work for plans without outgoing text?  thanks for confirming!

@hTideGnow :No problem, yeah when I got the message telling me to reply YES, I just tried to reply out of curiosity and my text message seemed to go through - even though I on data only plan no talk/text, I check my self serve and the Christmas gifts are there!
