If you leave after the 3 year point...all you would have paid is $449 for the phone. the 10% of your $25 monthly plan ($2.50) goes towards paying off your tab..it's not something you actually pay out of pocket.maple_syrup wrote: ↑Dec 14th, 2012 7:25 pmThis plan only makes sense when you either have ur own phone or get it for really cheap. WINDTab is a bad offering IMO. You buy an expensive phone like SGS3 for $449 with $25 plan and are "soft-locked" in for 3 years! 10% of each monthly bill ($25 in this case), which comes to $2.5 will go toward $200 Balance ($649 - $449) - which is $90 for 3 years. If I decide to break-away before 3 years, you pay full $649 for phone, if you break away after 3 years, you would have paid $449 + $90 = $539. Not worth it! And truly this is not less than a 3 year contract - where is the freedom? Where is the Wind? lol
Hope I did not confuse anyone, I basically started typing as I was thinking! Someone with more understanding please correct me. I need to get away from Mobi as I live on their coverage area edge and keep loosing signal.
Makes sense to me. IF you get a discount on your phone, WIND will keep wiping the balance off by 10% of your monthly spending. Should it take longer than 3 years, they pay it off completely for you. IF you leave before the 3 years, you pay whatever is left on your tab.
