Does the $5/month BYOD discount also apply to this?

eg. Big Gig + Talk 10GB (regular $65)
- unlimited Canada-wide talk, unlimited global SMS/MMS
- 25% 24-month discount = 48.75
- less $5 'digital discount' for auto-pay = 43.75
- less $5 BYOD discount = 38.75

I have a couple questions. Can existing customers upgrade to these plans at the location and keep their current number? Also, would the Big Gig + Talk 10GB plan count as a 60+ plan for MyTab?

Thank you in advance!

24-month discount

Contrary to the Live Agent chat Friday, the 25% discount is not permanent but for 24-months.

Sun 2:40pm - Live Agent chat is still saying the discount is permanent, but at the booth they are provisioning an "Event" discount of 25% for 24mo.

Pretty sure it was across from the military display, near the north entrance (coming from lrt)

Wasnt paying that much attention though.
The booth location is correct on the pin. It's beside the Dodge display.

The booth people REALLY didn't want to give out trial sims even though I was a former customer and knew the weak points of the network. The guy there made it seem like I was taking money away from him for asking for a free trial. :rolleyes: You'd think they would be throwing free trials at former customers to win them back...

These free trial sims also automatically expire after 30 days and it seems like you can't transfer the number if you manage to get a good one. Or at least that's what they said when they activated the sim at the booth.

I managed to get a free sim and signed up for the cheapest plan available with the 25% off.

1. The booth is by the north entrance, to the left of the Tim Hortons stage.
2. The cheapest plan you can get with the 25% is the $60 plan. They will not apply the discount to the $50 plan.
3. Everything now comes to $43.xx per month. I was told this includes all the discounts available. Are they right?
4. I was told I need to cancel within 15 days otherwise I'd be charged.
5. If you get the free trial - you need to go back while they are still on site and sign up in order to get the 25% off. (the reason I didn't do the free trial)
6. I can receive texts and use data on the new network, but I cannot make or receive calls at all. What am I doing wrong?

BYOD discount won't stack with the 25% discount, you can have one or the other.
You could use the BYOD discount on the $55 plan, which apparently doesn't get the 25%.

No, this 25% discount can only be applied on a new activation.
Yes, it qualifies as a 60+ plan for the tab.

2. Good to know. Another discrepancy from the Live Agent information, but consistent with how recent 25% discounts applied.
3. Sounds right.
6. Did you try a powercycle? If you did and still can't place a call, call 1-877-946-3184 from another phone for Customer Care, select 'Tech support'.

Time to ask the Edmonton folks to send us trial SIMs.
