First of all, I am NOT impressed with these changes. This probably was more of a Telus decision then a Public Mobile decision to increase revenue. When I changed over to PM, it was the $15 plan with outgoing 100min CDN wide calling and unlimited incoming mins no matter where in Canada i am at. I just hope that the current plan i am using will be grandfathered.
So what is the next thing they PM will change?
Ditto for me too.
So no official announcement? It appears all plans are on sale for $5 off and INCLUDE Canada Wide and USA calls on the $50 plan. No sale on the $15 plan. Is the $5 off price just the old price........basically announcing a $5 increase when sale is over. I assume this is set up to allow current customers to change plans?
My Feedly picked the changes.
Does this imply grandfathering?
We never take the decision of changing our plans lightly. That's why, for a limited time, we’re offering our Canada-wide plans at a $5 discount. That means customers who value Canada-wide calling can still access these plans at the original prices before they change.
I would like to see in clear writing what plans are grandfathered. If $15 plan is not grandfathered it will be a huge hit on low income and seniors trying to keep in contact with their family. AND if not clear it won’t allow decision making to upgrade while on sale or not, that is, if the on sale plans are not clearly marked as grandfathered.
It kind of looks like a well thought out change.....but a huge missing key is.....notification of grandfathering.
Thanks.....still not clear.......full of typos.....
To be very very honest....the official announcement should have covered grandfathering for new customers taking the sale price and for any one changing to a sale price plan. Nothing should be assumed. A huge and disappointing MISS in the announcement. Hopefully the new overpriced plans as compared to competitors will go on sale to allow changes. And perhaps this is what it is all about.....marketing......over price it....then put it on sale. This marketing tool has been in place for years.
worst part is this
"To call your home province while traveling, you will need a Long Distance add-on."
Are you serious. Your plan wont even work outside of your province. I should be able to call my province from ALL of canada. ITS LIKE PAYING FOR ROAMING IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY. CMON.
If anyone is intending to switch to one of the plans shortly, I have a test for you to try. But for the sake of not blowing it for others I would ask for an email address rather than pm due to the fact that they can and do observe activity in pm's. So pm me an email address if you want to try out something. One-off, instant, throw-away, anonymous email address of course.
But of course if my test has always been there then never mind. Maybe it's nothing new.
@computergeek541 Here's the data I collected:

It looks like the "old" $15 plan that included canada-wide 100 minutes is now gone & unavailable to switch to, or for new signups. If you want a $15 plan, best to immediately compliment it with a $5 canada-wide long distance add-on... If you have it already, just don't change it and it should stay grandfathered.
