The $25 migration plan shows up on anyone’s account that’s 35ish or more days into having their Lucky account.

The $15 migration plan was for those who activated a Lucky line under $20/month.

They’re silver plans so they’ll include any phone in the silver category. Samsung A8, Samsung A5, iPhone 6S, LG Q6, LG G6 and possibly some other ones. Everything but the iPhone 6S is discontinued though so it might be hard to find stock
when does this promo end?

Was at Costco Dixie an hour ago, was offered Silver $15 for migration, plus $0 for Samsung A20 and $150 Cash card. Didn't bite, will wait and see whether the Quarter end promotion can beat it.

Got a Samsung A50 at the RCSS yesterday. The migration details are from Silver $15 plan to Virgin Silver 15, $120 plus tax for the A50, receive 300,000 PC Optimum points. The phone should get you around $300 from Kijiji, so it's like:

119.99 * 1.13 = 135.59 - 300 (PC points) - 300 (phone on Kijiji) = $464.41

There is a $35 activation fee, but the Rep said it will be credited back on the 2nd or 3rd bill. Let's see.

Get paid for using their services for 2 years, that's pretty slick.

Such a sweet deal, I saw another RFDer do the same so I signup but was only able to get 200k points for my A50.

Much hotter then the Koodo switch as there is basically no tab on my Silver 25.

Went to RCSS again this morning, tried to migrate another Lucky $15 plan to Virgin's Silver 15, the Rep couldn't add the Silver 15 to my account. Is there a limit on how many Silver 15 lines you can have per household? I need migrate all 3 lines from Lucky to Virgin, for my kids.

this is one of the best plans I've seen in years just because of giving you a free phone (ESPECIALLY A20/A50, I got the A8 + Walmart $250 GC)

Any phone that is worth $300+ makes this plan the best plan yet if it's just for talk and text. If it's for kids, might as well buy them a flip phone (or give them one of your old phones) while you sell the phone you get to offset the cost of the 2 year plan.
If you're able to sell the phone for $300, you're pretty much paying $5 for the plan, plus you get your GC or PC points!!!

All it takes is even buying a Lucky Mobile sim off ebay for $1 (free shipping), activate a $10 plan for a month and you're good to go!

Not that I’ve heard. I only have 2 right now, so maybe there is a restriction, I have to wait 2 more weeks for my newest line.

Normally the only time you can’t find the plan is if the process was done incorrectly, but you’ll know if it was done wrong cause the lucky number will no longer be active

Lucky SIM cards are free with activation at Walmart so help some brothas out and just activate there

You are absolutely right, now my 2nd Lucky mobile number is gone. Wish I knew this before yesterday, so I could do a check on the spot after the unsuccessful migration. :(

Unfortunately, the Bell/Virgin system is absolute archaic garbage. With the introduction of migration plans, they added a new method to migrate numbers instead of using the old method which worked previously (which still works for migrating numbers over, but special migration plans won’t show up)

Most reps still try doing it the old way since B/V never said not to use the old migration system and that’s what reps are used to. I only found out because I tried one of my numbers and lost it cause I did it the old way

Sadly that's what happened to me, is there a way to recover from the mistake? I spent 2 or 3 hours this afternoon with Virgin / Lucky / RCSS (The Mobile Shop), no one seems to know what to do. Now I lost my number and eligibility for the free phone.

As far as I know, there’s nothing you can do.
I tried arguing with them for over a week and the best they could do was get my old number back, credit it some extra but it would be like a new activation again so offers would be gone.

So you’d basically activate a new account and pay for the first month and they’d credit second month, but realistically there’s no reason to top up the second month so the credit is essentially worthless
