I think Koodo is from Tellus

You should read again the quote... he was referring to Chatr -> Rogers

Incoming calls are never charged long distance rates on any provider, just uses your regular minutes unless you are out of the providers service area (e.g. in the US).. If your out of the provider's coverage then you would just be charged fairly high roaming red's for incoming calls and roaming fees + into long distance for outgoing calls. So to the people who live in rural Canada but have a big city number: you can still answer your phone without paying LD rates at home, and without any extra fees besides minute usage if your provider has coverage where you are

That's not true unless your plan includes Canadian LD.

I don't think this is true. If you have an Ontario number and pick up call while you are in BC, you are charged regular airtime + Canadian long distance.

If you dont have long distance plan, then if you have a London Ontario number and you are in Toronto and receive a call you get charged long distance (your regular time + long distance charge)

Anyone knows what is BlackBerry Basic -Social Trial $10.00?
Yeah, it's for those who just want BBM but don't need any other Social Networking. It's the same as their new $10 CD, VM, MSG plan but with unlimited BBM without the need for a larger data plan.

Crazy to think that for $30 you can get 100 per second any time nationwide minutes, 7 pm Nationwide evenings and weekends, CD, VM, Ultd international sms/mms and Ultd BBM.

Only idiots would sign up with Chatr... just another flanking brand from Rogers.

Guess I'm an idiot. Been very happy with chatr. $35 unlimited local talk, unlimited Cdn long distance, unlimited text, call display, voice mail. If you use a lot of voice calls, especially in the daytime there is nothing to match or beat this in the new Koodoo plans. I personally don't need data as I waste enough time on the Net as is.

The new carriers offer this cheaper but I don't really have the patience for dropped calls, bad reception etc so I pay a bit more to use the Rogers towers, the way I see it.

Still waiting for the perfect plan, but for now the best plan depends on your needs.

Interesting.. Koodo steps up to the plate, sort of..

SO what about the City Koodo plan then: happens with the "Unlimited Local Calling"?

So basicaly for $45, you get unlimited local and long distance calling anywhere in Canada and there is no roaming or long distance charges?

I'd rather pay for LD instead of paying a combined $17 for CID, Text, and VM...

This sounds too good to be true to me, but if it's true, I'd dump chatr for Koodo, even with Call Display and Voice mail which are probably $12 more to add on.

What does "Canada wide calling" mean? Does this really mean unlimited roaming long distance?

On their site, when I select the $45 unlimited plan, all the add ons are unavailable, which doesn't make much sense to me.

If someone can clarify, I'd appreciate it.

I called up Koodo. Apparently it's a $10 package for CID, VM and unlimited texts.
