Re: Does my data carry over after 30 days with a 90-day plan?

@7789849803 sounds right to me.

@Rockdaddy22 @7789849803 @manil_c yes, that's correct.  When your second 90 days starts, your new 1GB plan allotment kicks in until it is used up or your 90 days end, whichever happens first.

Re: Does my data carry over after 30 days with a 90-day plan?

Ha Telus gotta love how you are trying to pull a fast one on users who you make them believe they are geting a better deal on the 90 days.

Now let me break it down.

30 day plan 6GB x3 to = 90 days  so $102×3 = 306 for 18GB


90 day plan is 4GB/mth=12GB which is  $216  so if you wanted 6GB per month on the 90 days it would cost 60/month extra × 3 = $180 so $180+$216 = $396.

 

Now let's go back to the 30 day for 3 months at $306.

306 for the 30 days x 3
Or
396 for 90days with 6 extra GB at 30 each GB

So $396-$306=90

So that makes the 30 day plan $90 cheaper over 90 days if you wanted 6gb per month

Also nice try telus on rounding up the data to the nearest 10KB I'll be sure to contact Industry Canada and the CRTC about this. As i don't see how you can pick pocket us for not using the full KB. May even be a Class action (Legal Case) in regards to the data round up.

I don't know what you're talking about. All I know is I get a better deal on the 90 day plan, pretty simple.

Regular rate plan data doesn't roll, only add-on data does, regardless of duration, 90, 30 or even 10 days. Regardless, 90 days is still preferable, more fun. I have 6 gigs in plan, and 6 gigs and 2 mb add-on ready on standby.

It is only cheper because you get less gb per month in the 90 day plan. If you want the same gb per month that you get with the 30 day plan then it isnt cheaper once you add those extra gb. The 90 day plan ends up being $90 more expensive

I guess if you need that much data maybe PM isn't for you. I guess I don't disagree, they should offer 18GB on a 90 day plan.

@ladycandy Correct math. There are other anomalies as well, so everyone needs to review their needs carefully when choosing 90 vs 30 day plans. I personally do not find this sort of anomaly annoying. I expect it is unintentional, but even if planned is still a non issue as no one is required to move to 90 days, but simply means PM prefers heavy voice/text users over data gluttons. Folks needing unlimited mobile data just need to search out their best deal.

 

I still maintain that the autopay 90 day calling/text/1GB plan is unmatched value across Canada.

EDIT Dec 10 for @7789849803 just to support ladycandy's math.

Wow. Where do I even begin to point out all the flaws in this analysis? I have to try, though. Here goes...

 

(1) The 6GB 30 day plan costs $80 and not $102.

(2) 4GB 90 day plan costs $75 and not $216.

(3) 90 day plans are NOT monthly. If you buy 4GB data as part of a 90 day plan, you get to use 4GB over 90 days and not 12GB.

(4) All data sessions are rounded industry wide. In fact not just for data consumption, but for absolutely ANYTHING there has to be a minimum unit of any commodity you measure. Whether it's a grain of salt or camels, there are always minimum units that are not divisible. Now, whether these data sessions are rounded by the 10 kb or 1 kb is what you're likely protesting, and you're welcome to do so. Personally, I don't see how it makes much of a difference at all. How many separate data sessions would you have on a given day anyway, for the extra kbs to add up to anything? But if you want to complain that you're getting 0.5% less data than you deserve as a result of this rounding, you're welcome to create noise about that. It's hardly illegal or even unethical though, and calling it such just calls your motives into question.

(5) You're not under any compulsion to buy PM service. If you think it's overpriced or the pricing structure is not to your liking for whatever reason, please don't sign up! This community is composed of thousands of PM users (myself included), some of whom have been with the company happily for years.

18 gigs for 90 days? Hmmmmmmm.

If under 150 day term, perhaps. 2.5 gigs per 30 day I believe is perfect for me, or 3 gigs at least
