Thanks. I'll wait until if and when such offers return before thinking about getting a PM subscription, then. Same goes for recommending it to others who want a good postpaid plan.

It may be too late to get a PM plan when the migration promo is offered again. It is like buying lottery ticket. It is too late to get a lottery ticket after the draw was announced.
Get in the migration lottery early with PM promo like free SIM + the second month, or $25 referral credit promo. All PM promotions were expired on Jan 1. Jump on any PM activation promo coming up. I expect next migration promo around end of February and early March - before Telus first financial quarter ends on March 31.
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.

Called back in October/November and got absolutely nothing, waste of time talking to a brick wall rep. Oh well, was worth a shot. All the Public Mobile migration customers sure got lucky.

What the heck. Tried again yesterday and totally different story. He was able to apply a $10 bill credit for 12 months. He also game me a big hardware credit to buy a new phone at some point. Went above and beyond.

Always speak with loyalty when i call and call once or twice a year. Depends on the rep. One rep can't/won't do anything. Another rep can and will do plenty. Just be polite and be honest. Like many people had a chance to upgrade and cancel outright on the latest phone sales. We talked about that and some other stuff quickly. He's the one that offered the hardware credit and increased it. Being honest helps. Happy with Koodo, did not expect much. Now have to wait for the next phone deals. Hoping for the P20 Pro.
yes, be patient for the phone deals....koodo gives the best phone deals by far...

can't bring back time but i got the p20 pro from koodo...$310 outright... just got lucky one evening when i was on the website...

I keep trying to get them to match my Telus $60/10GB plan, lol. 0/3 so far since the summer, but I’ll keep trying.

My initial retentions call during the price war was denied since I had a tab balance, so I just ported out as I was PO’d after watching 2 other people at work in the exact situation do it flawlessly. Didn’t even cross my mind that it would be eligible for a Tab down the road. I’d like to go back to avoid having to buy my next phone outright…

Koodo reached out to me with some targeted pre-paid migration plans. 1GB/$35, 3GB/$45 or 5GB/$55. Not very impressive.

Being aware of the Zoomer 4GB/$36 plan, I casually asked if Koodo would match any of its competitors plans and the CSR said no citing their competition's "quality". I then asked if Retentions could do something for me, the CSR said that since I'm not a post-paid customer, they wouldn't.

I'm not 100% yet, but I'm leaning towards the Zoomer plan.

I ported my wife Koodo number to Zoomer 2 years ago. My wife handed her phone to me. It was Koodo calling and want us to switch back to Koodo. I said that we are with Zoomer $36 4GB data. We will be interested to switch back to Koodo if she offers us the $35/5GB PM to Koodo migration plan. The best she can offer is $45/4GB plan. I sad why I want to switch back and pay $9 more fore the same plan.

I guess Koodo tries to fool people with the same bullshit tactics as Bell. Bell says their 100 Mbps is faster than Rogers 1 Gbps because they use real Fibre.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this.

I was a Telus customer, and was so disappointed with the $10 increase that I switched to Zoomer.

Telus sent me a survey and I wrote that I was highly disappointed with how they treated their customers, and the price increase strategy was poorly executed. That was a week ago.

Anyhow, today, I got a call from Koodo, and I was never a Koodo customer. I was offered 2 plans to switch to Koodo.

- $50 for 6 GB Shockfree data, unlimited mins, unlimited nationwide texting
- $60 for 10 GB Shockfree data, unlimited mins, unlimited nationwide texting

I took the $60 bait, as I was perfectly happy with the $60/10 GB plan until Telus had to rock the boat.

Now have to pay out Zoomer, as I had sold the phone that came with it. Oh well.

Not exactly very RFDer like, since I will be out of money by $30... but at least, now I get back my 10 GB!!!!

Now you are a Telus customer again. Their win back tactic worked.

I work in the telecom industry. Bell has no towers west of Ontario. Bell customers hop onto telus network where as telus customers go on to bell network ontario and east. So I dont know how can hey claim their data speeds they way they do. I guess CSRs dont know that either.

What? Bell has lots of towers in Manitoba (west of Ontario).

What? You have confused towers with networks. Yes, Bell and TELUS share their towers, but NOT their networks. You're not thinking about the backhaul and core network that are NOT shared.
TELUS: Unlimited Canada Talk & Text, 15+10 GB Data
Koodo: Unlimited Canada Talk, World Text, 8+9 GB Data
AT&T: Unlimited talk & text in and between the U.S., Canada, & Mexico, 8+17 GB data

Bell and Telus still have their own tech at each tower, so the speeds and latency can vary.

Are you sure you work in the telecom industry? People who don’t work in the telecom industry know better than you. All you have to do is go here: https://www.ertyu.org/steven_nikkel/cancellsites.html
