You guys are a real wealth of information and help.

We are original WIND customers...or is that original sin customers? Just checked with Fredom support and they are as useful as a callous. Checked with Freedom app and if shows.....PYW 2011, 5gb of Freedom Data.

Already used 5% of it..

We did not receivea any texts.

Checked my Irresistible 35 and if still shows "only" 5gb of Freddom Data.

Now she has data and time to upgrade her S4. Anybody have any idea how to get the A50 or A70 cheaply? Freedom charges full rate for it and we don't qualify for any plans or discounts.

I did a speed test on fast.com this morning. 90Mbps down and 15Mbps up with unloaded latency 14ms and loaded latency 257ms. Very impressive!
I am getting 20 down and 16 up, I don’t know where you are getting those speeds from? on iPhone 6s plus at Scarborough Town Centre

Thank all of you. Just check my usage and found I'v alredly have 5GB data. But there is a problem, I only can get 3G speed instead of 4G LTE. I've changed cellphone and sure is not cellphone's problem. Anyone got the same problem?

In one location in Mississauga, inside the house, I get 25 down with the LG V20, 5 down with the Samsung S4.

Another area, I get 38 down with the V20 and 10 with the S4.

You need to have B66 and B4 bands to get higher speeds.

Also, the V20 gets calls deep inside buildings were the S4 gets nothing.

Time to upgrade the S4.

Check what bands you have. It's possible that your phone is not Freedom compatible. Or older phone.

Check my above posts. There is a huge difference between two phones based on what bands they have.

Thank you, but it seems not my phones problem. I have tested android and iphone6S with my another Freedom $15 tablet SIM card. Both of them work in LTE with my another Freedom SIM card.

The 6s plus doesn't have Band 66 capabilities. On Freedom band 66 gives you the highest speeds.

i dunno i think i have to check my bill again...cuz i once had two discounts stacked on my account, one was 25% and another 35% but one of them was removed, im not sure which one, was paying dirt cheap, all in 50$ for iphone 8plus!

ok just checked my latest bill... its 50 for the plan so 35% off that 50 is 17.50 , so im paying 32.5 + 25$ tab for the ip8+ , with tx its around 65 per month but im getting minus 5$ for that outage credit for next 4 months

i used to get 30$ off lol cuz i had 60% discount stacked!

You could try using Koodo to get one for cheaper than MSRP. I don't think Koodo is running many discounts right now but it's still cheaper than MSRP if that's what freedom is charging you.

Just get a phone on a tab with Koodo and select a qualifying plan, then cancel right after and pay off the tab in full. You only get charged a pro-rated amount on your plan. So for example I see the A70 for $480 on a large tab. So if you were to get that and a large tab eligible plan and you cancelled right away you should be paying about $480 + $3 (pro-rated amount for your monthly plan, just my estimate) + $35 (activation fee) + tax.

Didn't get any text message from Freedom but when I log into my account I see 5gb allowed usage.

I am on the old Wind Holiday All in the Family $20 Talk plan since April 2011

Called in and was told I need to be on a $30+ plan to get the free data

Call center is useless. Told me the PYW don't qualify and yet, it's right in front of me on the Freedom app and no charges.

It's Freedom that are making them useless. If their systems don't coordinate and can't see anything, they will spout whatever they are told.

I guess at what we are paying for our service, we got to live with second rate service.
