Current Migration Plans (Rogers/Fido/Bell/Virgin) (prepaid to postpaid) Starting from $30

These are the current migration plans. In order to get these plans, you need to switch from prepaid to postpaid. Need to be at least 30 days active on prepaid.
Some stores offer these plans without the 30 days hold but YMMV. It depends on the salesperson.

Koodo migration plans are usually the best one out there. From Public mobile to Koodo. I think their current migration plans are the same as Bell/Virgin.

Sorry to high jack but... saw this recently and seems interesting but....

https://support.fongo.com/hc/en-us/cate ... o-Wireless

2GB @ LTE $19.99 - Fongo w/ free app
vs
3GB @ 3G $14.99 - Fido w/ Fongo free app

Glad to see competition out there but Fongo needs to drop that price in half to win over this market! $10 for 2GB @ LTE w/ Fongo app and I'd be in for sure!

Then there is Public Mobile with a $13 plan with unlimited incoming, 100 minutes outgoing, and 250 megabytes of data. You want more outgoing minutes, you can get an add on of 500 minutes for $5, which do not expire. All minutes are Canada wide!

no offense to OP, but those offers no longer being temptation after Public Mobile offers their plans.

I used to be on Rogers migration plan, then ported to PM, never regret. Rogers wanted to "winback" few times, but how could if they are still expensive than PM.

Does Public Mobile still only offer 3G plans? I don't think Rogers and Public Mobile can be put on the same tier. I don't think anyone can beat the limited time $60 15GB LTE plan.

Public Mobile and Lucky Mobile 3G was always a red herring. Public Mobile's 3G is an LTE plan throttled to 3 mb/s I can see how that speed might be a problem when the data quota is over 10 GB, but under that, you do not want anything faster, because it kills your quota too quickly. 3 mb/s get 99% of what you need to get done, without issue. I have the faster LTE from Koodo, Virgin, PC Mobile prepaid, and Fido. In the real world, they are just as fast as throttled LTE Lucky Mobile, and Public Mobile, especially in rural areas, and congested areas.

Chatr's 3G is real 3G, is over subscribed garbage, and should be avoided like the plague!

This offer ($30 = T+T+2GB) has been extended to Lucky Mobile customers as well (got this as a text on my 'suspended' Lucky number) until November 17th.

Nothing to brag about. Just the standard base offer that the cartel has put up to switch from prepaid>postpaid, but this time Bell has extended it to Lucky Mobile users as well, to bump up their postpaid subscriber numbers.

If you were looking for a base talk & text plan with native WiFi calling (not the half baked crap that Lucky Mobile tried to offer), it's going to be between this one and the $20 talk & text plan from Fido (migration offer).

Yes, there's the $23 1GB/T+T plan from PM, but there's no native WiFi calling support, so go to the one that has the features you need!



I'd personally wait for the sales season to kick in before switching at this point.

The rogers/fido migration offers have changed. The current ones are now:

$25/250MB, BYOD only.
$40/2GB, BYOD only.
$45/5GB for BYOD, also available with small/medium/edge20 tab.
$55/8GB for BYOD, also available with small/medium/large/edge20 tab.

Small tab is +$10, medium (or edge20 on rogers) is +$15, large is +$20. All these plans come with unlmtd Canada-wide talk/text (fido has int'l text, 5 hours data, and fido xtra on all these plans). Rogers prepaid customers can switch to fido postpaid and get these offers, and vice versa. Fido prepaid balances will only transfer to fido postpaid, rogers prepaid balances will only transfer to rogers postpaid, and chatr balances won't transfer to either. Overage data on these is $15/GB for fido, and $20/GB for rogers. $35 connection fee is still applicable.

I went to bell yesterday and couldn't get straight answers. The rep there noted to get the $30 2gb deal, I'd have to be a prepaid customer for 60-90 days. I went to a mobile kiosk that sells various providers and they noted that statement was true but the 60-90 days was not necessarily true - they didn't have the specific time frame. But they noted that these deals tend to go by quickly so the chance of being able to sign up for a prepaid account and then switching over after x time period is slim.

Not one rep noted anything about being able to on a case by case basis approve a prepaid to monthly transition for customers who are new or are recently new to prepaid. I was planning to bring over 4 lines but I couldn't get them to offer any better deals than the in-market plans. I also get a 30% discount on any in-market plans due to my works relationship with bell, but that discount does not apply as well to loyalty offerings such as this $30/2gb plans or on any prepaid plans. In-market plans only - which are very expensive plans. I'm currently with Koodo and have the $48 5gb plan ($53 after taxes). The cheapest bell in-market plan would be the $70 5gb plan or $75 unlimited plan(10gb). That means after 30% discount, it would be $52.5+tax. The other lines I was trying to bring over don't need more than 2gb data and they had budgets of $30-50 after tax.

We want to be on the Bell/Telus/Koodo/Virgin infrastructure ideally as it's the best network coverage. It seems only one family members current prepaid bell account is eligible for the $30 offer so they will likely go with it, while the rest of us will have to wait for something.
