@icej33 Nobody but the PM marketing team know the rationale for this fee. Truly, you just have to ignore it and focus on the total cost. If you do only pay the $10 there would NO service at all. Plus you can use add-ons unless you already have a plan; in particular the long distance add-ons will not function without a calling plan.
@icej33 don't forget that if you choose multiple services, you get some or all of that back in the discounts. If you choose 2 servcies, you get $5 discount per 30 days, so half of the $10 amount. But, if you choose all 3 services, you get a $20 discount per 30 days, which reimburses you the full $10 plus another $10 on top of that.
Hi there @icej33,
I'm sorry to hear that!
Could you send me your phone number via private message? I will look into this for you 🙂
@JaK Oh, you're right 😮 Thank you for pointing out!
@Thoraze no, it sounds like you are on the best plan for your needs. There is no "local calling" plans, the smallest is province-wide. And for texting, you either get all (global texting) or no texting. So, you are on the most affordable plan that includes what you need.
