Re: Talk till you drop for only an extra $5 month "500 min Canada-Wide Long Distance - $5.00&qu

@Beer I know eh.  when I saw this add-on I thought it was some type of glitch or something.  It's basically 1cent per minute.  Technically you're slightly wrong on the numbers because the $5 is not a per month feature.  It stays on until you use it up.  so for people like seniors this is great, it'll probably last them almost a year.  I look at the pricing more like this.

 

$10 base plan + 0.42 ($5 plan over 12 months) = $10.42.  then factor in the $2 autopay credit = $8.42/month.

 

But of course it all depends on how much this is used, so these number can change pretty drastically, but this is pretty much how it would look for my parents.  They aren't going through 500 minutes on their cellphone each year (mostly because they still have a home phone, which I'm trying really hard for them to get rid of, but of course they are too stubborn to let that go).

This has worked great for my parents.... even if they forget to hang up on a call who cares.... a $5 top up gets them on their way.

 

Yay PM!!!

 

(Not to mention the unlimited incoming minutes.....)

You think that your parents are stubborn - I suspect that they are no where near as stubborn as my wife - even though she has a cell phone plan she instists on keeping our Bell landline with added features ld etc. at a cost of close to $60/month ( 60X12=$720/year).

So,  isn't really Add On option?  To clarify: I must change my plan to access this?   cannot just add on for $5

You need an active plan, then you can get the $5 / 500 minutes of Canada wide calling add-on.

If you don't use all your 500 minutes by next renewal...they roll over until you use them up. You do need an active, in market plan though.

It can be added to any plan. However, it would not serve any purpose on a data-only plan (won't work) or on a plan that already includes unlimited Canada-wide calling.
