Cell saving plans

How do these cheap plans work. I plan to get one. Cellsaving.ca if you have used this before how does it work? Is it monthly as the carrier sends the plan bill to your house/online or how does this work?

It's a monthly plan.
You get your bills at home, or to your email / phone (ebill).
They put you on a plan intended for customers in Quebec or Manitoba (even though you may not live in Quebec or Manitoba).

The process:
1. You activate a new account (random # from the province of your choice)
2. You go online to Koodo's self serve system, and change the address on the account & the cell # to a Quebec #.
3. In the new billing cycle, you go in and change the plan to a promotional Quebec plan.
4. Profit.

You can do this yourself without paying a cent.

I think what makes this a loophole is those who've activated on ON/AB/BC numbers can switch to QC numbers in self-serve with Koodo without changing the billing address.

Ultimately, what is the rate paid?
