I want to switch over because i love Wind's Tab system but I have become addicted to Mobilicity's 30 minute N.A. roaming feature

what is unlimited local calling? Say you're in Hamilton, is local considered the hamilton region, or is local including all of Wind's unlimited areas?

*** currently a mobilicity customer. satisfied with my plan right now, but the versatility/extended coverage would be worth the switch.
Unlimited local calling is your unlimited local area/zone only. Unlimited Nation-wide/Canada-wide is all of Wind's Unlimited network area.

I signed up with their $100 promo a couple weeks ago, then 7 days later I went and switched to the $150 promo. Afaik, they have some kind of a 14 day policy for returns/cancellation, but outside of that 14 days they might have a fee or something.

I'm with Mobilicity BTS atm as well, I might look into this once I finish my finals. I hate having any kind of interaction with these type of companies, though. I don't look forward to having to cancel with mobilicity and then do research to make sure I'm doing everything right with wind.

I like the idea of taking advantage of a windtab but by now the SGS3 is practically obsolete so it isn't really an ideal time. Plus they don't sell any nexus 4's, which would make it a no-brainer for me. Still, my Nexus S has been really wonky lately with self-freezes and restarts and the like, and I don't feel like putting a lot of effort into trying new custom ROMs for it when I'm not even sure if it's a problem with the ROM or the hardware.

im in the exact same situation as you. you DO NOT NEED to call in to mobi or cancel your plan. once your port your number, your mobi account automatically deactivates. DO NOT cancel your old account before, it must be ACTIVE if you want to port over your number. wind will ask you for your mobilicity account #, so log in and get that first. and i suggest you get a galaxy nexus from kijiji or something. solid phone, best ive ever owned and dirt cheap nowadays.

ALSO remember, if you get the better together savings with 2 other friends or family members you only have to pay $24/month. cheaper than mobi bts, and WAY better speeds/coverage.
ALSO im not 100% sure but i think u can get a $50 credit for pay before.

Heh, they keep getting better. I signed up for the $100 credit, then days later switched to $150 credit pay before, and now this deal might be even better for me. Need to see the fine print, but it looks like key differences for most people between this and the $40 plan are no US/Can long distance and no voicemail, yes? It'll be hilarious if I go into the store again to switch :) .

Hmm, with the $6.25 discount, I'm paying about $33.75 for 2 years, but with no tab option. This is tempting me to just cancel my Nexus order (who knows when that will come) and get on this plan with a free for maybe $100 phone, I'll prob end up with Wind for the full 3 years to pay off the tab anyway.

EDIT: I wonder if this can be used with Better Together Savings.
like i said, it can.

which site shows the best coverage maps for wind vs mobilicity? really considering jumping ship now that this offer has resurfaced.
basically, wind has 3x more towers than mobi.

Does this BTS include regular voicemail? This is kinda similar to the $29 Super Smart plan.
no voicemail, but possible to get using call forwarding and freephoneline.ca same as i do now with mobi bts.

WIND Mobile has extended local calling. This is the area for Toronto:

Hamilton would be considered a local call. The entire yellow area is Wind's "expanded" local calling area. You have a lot of flexibility.

No dice my speeds and coverage is fine with mobi, plus I have unlimited province wide calling and data $25. This is only local calling and since they outsourced their call centers customer service is brutal.

To those who are interested in this plan but wont sign up without voicemail:
- You can get a free phone number and a customizable answering machine from http://www.freephoneline.ca/ (if you cant get a toronto number you can use thornhill, richmond hill, etc to avoid forwarding to a long distance number)
- Then set your phone to forward your unanswered, busy, and unavailable incoming calls to your freephoneline number.
- Then set your voicemail access number to the corresponding number on this list http://www.freephoneline.ca/vmAccessNumbers
- Also make sure to set your freephoneline to only ring once before going to voicemail, you can do this by logging into your account on their website and going to your settings
- You now have $25 BTS + Voicemail! When people call your regular phone number and you dont answer, it will forward them to your voicemail on your freephoneline number, and you can check your voicemail from your cell phone the same way you always would.

I believe they also provide the option to automatically transcribe your voicemails and email them to you in text form.

EDIT: I can help with specifics on how to do this using an android phone.
and use this to find out which conditions u want to forward:

Thinking of porting over from Petro-Can prepaid. If I sign up on Wind, do I have to port my old number right away, or can I do it later on?

The plans are available on a monthly basis; you can have it on pay before (prepaid, no credit check) or pay after (billed monthly).
