As soon as my 2-year contract with Fido was up, I switched to Bell.
I’m not a big cell-phone user, yet my most basic plan (200 min for $20 per month) adds up to a heavy $38 or so, for caller ID and taxes. And this doesn’t come with anything like Fido-to-Fido, voice mail, or evening minutes.
All of this is about to change. I don’t know what is up with the Bell website, but I got a plan that’s not on there at WirelessWave in Richmond Center: 250 minutes, free evening minutes after 6pm, voice mail, caller ID, free Bell-to-Bell, AND a free Motorola Krzr. Oh, and I dinged them for the earphones and memory card that would complete the MP3 in that Krzr, and a pouch to put everything in. All comes to a humble $28 after tax, on a 3-year contract.
This deal, which only lasts for yesterday and today, is so good that WirelessWave was not allowed to advertise it (or so the sales rep wanted me to believe), because the Bell stores would be undercut too badly. And I am to believe that I’m lucky enough to just run into this deal because I happened to have my crappy Fido plan expire.
Another good thing about WirelessWave: they deal with all of the major cellphone companies (Fido, Rogers, Bell), so that my cancellation with Fido and contract with Bell was done in the store, and my new Krzr started to work before I got home.
Now let’s wait and see if my phone bill is actually as good as is promised.
