No grandfathering. It's been a good run. I knew $26 after tax unlimited plan couldn't last forever.

It's not hard to keep the current plan and coverage area.

Maybe they'll offer Mobi customers slightly better Chat-r plans than those listed on the website. Otherwise, you can move to Public Mobile or Wind.

From the article: "“They will offer similar features and in a lot of cases offer more value.". LOL, I'd like to see what this "value" is? Perhaps national coverage, but still....

Bro, this is Rogers we're talking about. They mentioned similar features and offering more value, but see how they clearly omitted something along the lines of "similar or reasonable monthly costs". So yea, sure they'll offer more value but just like the choose your own cable channels, they'll molest you come the monthly bill.

Cue RFD Mobi customers and their "lifetime" plans. There's going to be a riot and bonfire on RFD for sure. When Rogers bought Mobilicity, some RFD Mobi customers mentioned of wanting to start a lawsuit to protect their "lifetime" plans. :rolleyes:

Wind Mobile if its just talk and text. $ 25 plan will get you that and some more, than your current $ 15 Mobi plan.

hot deal or what? you think its worthwhile to switch to Mobilicity now and reap benefits when it turns into ChatR? Hoping for grandfathered unlimited plans not to change...
