I just read a bunch of pages back, seems like CCTS didn't do anything for anyone, despite the complaints. Some people were initially offered a few dollars after complaining but many declined and nothing happened.

The biggest concern in my opinion is that this is a pattern by the big telecoms, acquire small company, disband/merge/restructure & then increase prices. No wonder we got the worst mobile data prices, even in major cities.

How is freedom coverage in Toronto nowadays, still dead zones or did they fix that?

We have two lines on $25 plan. One received the text, other hasn't. Both signed up together.

And I think this was for life plan.

Need to dig out images etc.

Can you post the notification you got? I don't believe that the emergency alert system has anything to do with chatr hiking prices...it's just Robbers being Robbers.

Looks like just the standard price hike notification, I don't see anything about emergency alert in there.

Received a message of increasing $5 this afternoon, and also got an offer to transfer Chatr to Rogers.

Robbers are always robbers.

Got same text and offer

$25 now $5

Been with mobilcity for as long as they've been around.

Still think it's the best plan, just kinda feel like updating my S6, but I don't like all these longer/larger screen phones.

Got the text moving up to $30 for the new cycle in late August.

Still not switching to robbers post paid and if this plan fits your needs, I would encourage everyone to stay put. Their new $55 plan with the A5 is shit, $360 ($40 robbers plan + $15 for the phone math) over 2 years for a phone that is practically next to nothing with Koodo buy-and-cancel deal.


They would have to replicate Koodo's $40 6GB plan to make it worthwhile.

At $30 you can't go wrong, but if chatr ever increases the price again (which they most likely will), I'll definitely jump ship.

Got the text. I was on a $35 Mobilicity plan. Is there any way to tell if this plan was meant to be for life ?
