I find the Legacy plans to be far better than others at time, Consistent, and not too complicated.
Though Now I luv the NEW Plans even more
The $25 GF Plan is not all that Bad, and can be doable
So if the old plans are no good, why are people insisting on staying on them?
The Legacie Plans do serve some purpose, BUT that era is long past, and PM is charting a new Future
There are STILL some PPL who may require Customer Care, with actual call centre stuff.
BUT, IF PPL know what they're doing, Call Centres become Obsolete, BUT I do admit, SOMETIMES in extreme cases where If the ability to fully describe the actual issue is MORE complicated, Sometimes keeping ALL Chs open can be Balance.
But that's my opinion
So far, all seems to be good, No need for Extreme measures
@WearySky as @makkahn28 mentioned, the main reason is to stay with them for telephone support
This is the main reason why Public & Koodo created the offer to transition to Koodo
But pure price wise, the $15, $19, & $25 plans (all have no data) are the only legacy plans worth keeping
If you are on any other you are better off to switch
@kav2001c "Price wise" my old $40 Canada wide unlimited talk/text + 1GB of data, seems better than $47 (what they offer now).
They have a $120 for 90 days which includes everything I have except PM limited the Talk to Province wide and added 1GB of data which I do not care for.
@Rambo - Unlimited Canada-wide text+talk and 1GB data/30 days is $126 on a 90 day plan. Turn on auto-pay and it's back down to $120/90 days, so the exact same price as what you're paying. The $120 plan you're looking at is technically $114 every 90 days if you have autopay turned on. Yeah, if you want the flexibility of paying every 30 days instead of every 90, you're going to pay a bit more ($47, or $45 if you turn on autopay), but unless you need the flexibility of being able to suspend your service at the 30 day mark you could always just top up your account every 30 days on a 90 day plan instead. Even with autopay attached to your account you can still just top up every 30 days instead, and take advantage of the autopay bonus without it actually pulling from your credit card. The only issue with that is you do have to remember to turn off autopay if you want to suspend your account for any reason.
Edit: and actually, if you're on one of the "pioneer" plans, you also qualify for a loyalty reward on the current market plans of at *least* $2 off for every 30 days. So you could either use the prices above without having to worry about autopay, or use autopay AND loyalty rewards and reduce the costs by an added $2 a month. And if you're even remotely active on the forums you'd also qualify for one of the community rewards too (minimum $1/month for being in the top 50%, which doesn't seem to be too hard to crack)
@WearySky Ok, I now pay 40, soon to be 43.
I am a Pioneer, ok, I am saving $2 from that 47 to 45, cool. Now you say I can qualify for $1 (minimum) off by helping the community (top 50, blah blah), now we're at 44.
Lets assume that PM felt like being nice that day; instead of $1 they gave me $2...I'm back at 43 where I started.
I feel like it's easier to stay at 43 where I am, rather then trying to work back down to 43 from 47.
