I just had 6 friends, family members switch from Freedom to Koodo on Saturday.
They all paid off their TAB. They couldn't wait to leave Freedom's terrible service.

I asked them about the phone you can get for free with the $35 plan.
There is none.
You can get the iphone SE for $20 a month tab fee. So $480 for SE?!!
I cannot recommend anyone to get a phone through them.
Their plan is solid though.
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

Is the bonus data monthly? Like I get 7 GB every month for $35? Also can I switch to this plan if I'm on another plan?

Freedom has been status quo since I joined them almost 2 years ago. Driving in areas north of Toronto where there should be coverage, drops to 3G and won’t allow to connect to Nationwide. Left my F&F to join Rogers EPP.

7GB every month.
You can ask.

If you haven't seen an improvement in 2 years where there should be coverage, you don't have working VoLTE or access to band 13.

I do. Try driving up the 400 and see how many times it drops to no service or 3G. Have band 13 and 66.

iPhone 11. I have LTE and VoLTE enabled. When it drops to 3G it’s pretty much unusable. Price was good, but I think paying a little more is worth it for me.

Well the Freedom iPhone 11 is certainly VoLTE capable, which would have given you access to (extended range) band 13, if it was provisioned in the area. I'm assuming you had VoLTE generally, there can be a glitch were it doesn't actually activate on the line even though provisioned. I know around 15 ON sites were upgraded with B13 between the end of Feb and beginning of July, but from what I can see they have a ways to go before all ON sites that would benefit get the upgrade, unlike BC/AB where the rollout seems complete.

If Freedom doesn't work where you need the service (with a fully compatible device), then it doesn't work. You were fortunate to have the EPP option with RBT.

Not trying to start a beef or anything, but this post on a recent Bell Hot deal caught my attention and I felt it was worth pointing out. Other networks are taking notice of Freedom Mobile's growth, even if not everyone is able to take advantage of Freedom's offer or Bell's offer.
