Just spoke with a Koodo rep so its $5 for the first 12 months then $25 thereafter but no contract it can be cancelled anytime so still a good deal you can always shop around end of term or something else might come up towards the end of the year.
Just went to a Koodo kiosk and purchased the unit in Montreal, QC. Here are the deets:

Cost me $57.49 tax in, up front, no contract ($40 for device, $10 SIM, plus local taxes, etc.)
Will show up as $20.46 cents monthly and then a $15 discount ($0.46 is for e911). He was aware and informed me that was 12 mos. only and then the credit expires and it defaults to $20/month automatically.

The device is locked and costs $50 to unlock or free as of Dec 2017. I own the device since bought outright and can be used with Fido, Rogers and Virgin. I figure in 11 months and need to look around and see who has the best deal in order to maintain the service...

Does this work for home security alarm monitoring?
Would like to know the answer to this as well. My parents are on a $50 home phone plan with Rogers while using Grand Alarms...

You'd wonder if they'd have a retention plan at some point after that.

There is no modem. It run on a cellular network not the internet. It is not a VOIP system.

Maybe I'm just cynical from dealing with Rogers, Bell etc all these years but the CRTC wireless code page only mentions removing the unlocking fee for cellphones... I wouldn't put it past them to claim that 'home phone' devices like these do not qualify in order to keep charging the unlock fee past Dec 1st. I do hope you are right though.

Has anyone tried to see if Fido will match this deal for home phone in Ontario?

I know it's not the same but how does Koodo home phone compare with Teksavvy VOIP?

Both equipment cost $50. Koodo is cheaper monthly for the first year. Teksavvy monthly is $9.95.

Anyone?

How is Teksavvy VOIP btw? for 9.95$ what do they mean by long distance call? Toronto to Montreal is long distance? Inside province calls are long distance?

I had last years promo, and it was due to expire in August. So I called Koodo, to see if I could get a 1 year extension. No can do. So I asked them if they could add another Koodo phone home package to my account. That turned out to be a bad idea.

Ultimately, they were not able to do it, and ended up really messing up the account. It took them 3 hours to get back to where I started. I was entertained at the very least.

Turns out to get this to work, you need to set up another Koodo account using another email address. I am not sure if I can port from Koodo to Koodo, but I have a disposable Virgin prepaid SIM card and phone I can port to, and then port over to the new Koodo account if need be. I think I am stuck with an extra home phone box, even though the SIM cards are interchangeable. I have 15 days to find out if I can return the box, without losing the service.

apologies if it's been answered already - mobile and out of the country! trying to figure out if this is good alternative for my parents (on bell w/ phone/internet but the bundle price is ridiculous)

- can you port number from Bell over with this deal - cost associated with it?
- have a vtech set but i think Bell modified the phone lines- would this still work? (seems like it's voip only ports now.. i could be wrong... whatever they needed to do to get Fibe working

Thank you!!
