Hi All, just called Bell loyalty ,on all my services, (Internet-6 mbs, 20gig, Bell tv- HD, timeshifting, Movies and 12 theme packs, Home Phone- basic +unlimited North America)
Total Bill 220/mos
I own 3-3100's, 1 6100,1 4100 and 1 6141
Told them rogers could give me whole home HD PVR with 4 H receievers and 18MBS internet (60Gig) and Home Phone at a wash for (197.00 all in)


Was able to get:
Internet- 60 Gig same 6mbs (waived my modem rental as well)
TV- Free HD PVR (3 year rental for free)+ free install and free repair for an issue I am having
Home Phone- same service
Total 179.00/mos

Thinking Bell might be afraid of the Rogers whole home PVR concept in areas where FIBE TV not available.

12 Theme packs? Maybe there is room for saving if you take 6 theme packs and pay for individual channels or theme packs (if you can do this) and you tend not to watch all of those channels?

Your internet speed can probably be brought up or you should switch to a re-seller like acanac or teksavvy but I'm glad to hear you got 60 gb from 20!
I checked the rates for Teksavvy in Ontario and they would be $30 for a no contract plan that has 6 mbps with a 75 gb cap. You can buy a used modem for as low as $20 rather than renting it.

If anything, asking bell to match that can help you save more money.

Also, just gonna make a note of this but a lot of people that use redflagdeals have this device called magicjack or use a service called freephoneline. Magicjack has monthly fees while freephoneline has only an upfront fee. It's exponentially cheaper to use this over Bell and apparently it's really hard for people to detect that you're not using plain old telephone service.

Here is the magicjack website:
http://www.magicjack.com/plus-v05/

You can create a new number or keep your old one.

The retention offers really seem to have dried up. Bundling to get a discount isn't really anything new, so those "retention offers" are lame.

It's getting too expensive for only a few decent channels we liked, so we cancelled. Bell made no attempt to retain our business and politely put the cancellation order through.

I am a 10 year old subscriber of Bell TV.

I had 3 receivers:

9241 PVR
5100 PVR
3100 standard

they gave me a free 9242 for 3 years for my second HD TV.

That makes me very happy!

Call 1-888-673-3788
Step #1 -> Press #1 for French
Step #2 -> Enter 10 digit phone number
Step #3 -> other options is now #6
Step #4 -> Press #2 to cancel subscription

[quote="openskies" post_id="14796633" time="1337986155" user_id="204113"]I received a letter yesterday informing me that ontario pvr's will be extinct in a few months and will be sent to the garbage heap. I received replacement receivers yesterea...and guess what....They are not pvr's. The booklet offwers instruction on how to hook a vcr to the receiver to record. If in fact pvr's are out because of some obscure agreement with the networks They will have no chance in hell of retaining me as a customer.

This is all about control, control, control.

The new 6400 receiver (if that is what you are talking about, openskies) is the first Bell receiver without an RF/Coax output or component output. The only options are composite video, which is about equivalent to VCR quality as far as I'm concerned, or HDMI. You can still connect an external hard drive to the USB port and use it as a PVR, but only on the terms that the content owner wishes. So some programs may be marked with a "do not record" flag, so you will be unable to PVR it. In Canada, that has not happened here yet, but you can be sure it will eventually.

If you had PVRs before and Bell sent you 6400s as replacements, I would raise a stink. They are replacing older MPEG2 only HD receivers with ones that support MPEG4, so they can cram more HD channels onto the two satellites they have.

But the big media companies, broadcasters, movie studios, networks, would rather you use HDMI so you can't record things on your own terms and they maintain as much control over their content as possible. Yes, you get to pay for being treated this way! Meanwhile the pirates laugh. Fun.

Just got off the phone with loyalty. I currently pay $220 + per month for phone, internet and TV. I own all of my equipment. I am not on contract. I indicated that the 'better' bundle at $126 would be almost $100 savings and was told straight away that those prices are for new customers only. Period. Best they could do was $170 plus tax.

you are paying way too much... you might want to think about moving some of your business to another company.

Currently i am paying $29.99/month for dsl service with 3web.
Also about a month ago bell was offering basic phone line service for $14.95 - bell-home-phone-sure-you-not-legacy-pla ... e-1132112/

I get Fibe 12 for $31.95 a month, incl extra 40GB and modem rental. There's also a $5 bundle discount, so really it's $26.95. Do you pay a dry loop fee on top of that $29.99?

Called back last night. The person I spoke with was pretty good. My bill is now $128 per month plus HST, which will save me about $80 month. Didn't give up any services and still not on contract. What a difference though in the two people I spoke with.

Currently using bell home phone lte 14.95 - 5(bundle discount)

For 29.99 there is a extra fee for a dryloop. Depending on your location its $6.99 to $9.99. Orginally when i first joined i way paying $7.99 for the dry loop + $29.99
