Just switched over from fido to Zoomer and found I have lost rcs, at least it's just sitting at "setting up" for hours. Anybody have rcs working? While I'm at it, may as well ask, is Zoomer going to have 5g, like fido? Plan on getting a 5g phone soon. Thanks

Zoomer talk and text plan is not competitive with the prepaid provider.
How many minutes and text you need per month?
Public Mobile has a $13 with autopay enabled 100 outgoing minutes + unlimited incoming minutes + unlimited international SMS/MMS + 250MB data. You can buy a $5 500 minutes add-on as backup. Add-on minutes does not expire until all consumed. MMS uses data. But PM MMS data usage is included and will not count toward to your monthly data quota. I have a discontinued $10 plan without data. I can receive and send MMS.

Thats good to know! I thought the incoming minutes for PM counts towards the 100 allocated minutes per month. Definitely considering PM, thanks again!

Thanks OP, I made the switch and got the $40.50 plan (needed unlimited calling).

Bell raising the rates another $5 on their $60 10GB plan (now $70 after 2 raises) was the final straw for me. Winking Face

If you only care about the unlimited calling, not the additional 1GB data, you may want to get a free phone that comes with the $36 plan. By doing so, you can downgrade to the $36 loyalty plan after 6 months. I think Zoomer will update their $36 loyalty plan to 5GB data.

Thanks! I had thought about that, but even 1GB more for $4.50 extra is not a bad premium and safety net. I'm downgrading from the 10GB so I'd prefer to have a little more data handy :)

I wonder what the $40.50 loyalty plan will look like in 6 months...

Call them!

I just got off the phone, and they removed the $5 extra charge, and will send me a new P30 Lite, with no hidden fees for doing any change and a new sim card.

$45 pre-tax for unlimited everything, full voicemail, but only 2GB data which is the plan I previously had. (I NEVER came close to using that amount of data anyways)

Only catch, is I obviously have to lock in for another two years, but since I've been with them over 15 years, what's another 2 at this point.

Hopefully I made the right decision, because I would have gone with the $40.50 Zoomer plan with the P30 Lite.

I assume Bell network is better than Zoomer?

I have no idea, and I'm still waiting for news on whether or not we have issues with Rogers service at work vs Bell which works well.

For some reason, I seem to recall coworkers on the Rogers network complaining more, that's all.

Does Zoomer email Tracking Numbers when they send you a phone? I ordered a new one last week and didnt receive a tracker or email or anything.
