(I only said “wrong” back as you are being so aggressive. If you got charged and no one else has, thats on you)
Still wrong

Customer Service (by phone):
Add/Remove/Change Add-on
$10

Phone activation/Account set-up
$50

Plan change (allowed once per billing cycle)
$10

Reconnection from suspension for non-payment
$45 per account

Transfer of Ownership
$45

Bill copies
$5/bill

Just because you haven't been charged doesn't mean they can't charge you as per your agreement. It's on the website https://www.koodomobile.com/en/help?INT ... _ContactUs
They do not specify whether they can charge you if it's a plan offered on website or a special plan not offered on the site. Most reps may be nice to you if you're a long time customer, but doesn't mean they can't charge you. It's a trash policy, period

Depending on if you really need 10GB of data, Zoomer might be a better deal. They offer free phones with their plans. Yes, the plan is $45 for a 7GB plan but you get a free Google Pixel 4A or TCL 20 Pro 5G. Getting a phone through any other carrier will add at least $15 to the cost of your plan.

- Zoomer (7GB + free phone): $45 + HST = $50.85
- Koodo (10GB - no free phone): $40 + $15 (phone tab) + HST = $62.15

That's a difference of $271.20 over the course of your 2-yr contract. Zoomer is currently offering a credit of $150 and you could add another $50 referral credit. Now you're looking at close to a $500 difference. Just need to ask yourself if you really need 10GB of data.

I've never heard of zoomer, I live in a pretty small farm town in Ontario, always worried about the service of not picking one of the big guys

Falls under the umbrella of Cityfone which is owned by Rogers. Uses the Rogers' network so you'll get the exact same service quality (or not, if Rogers reception sucks for you).

That's unfortunately the musical chairs game these days with our entrenched market of the Big 3 in both home and mobile services. You have to be willing to move and switch providers when you can get a much better deal. Gone are the days where you'll be rewarded handsomely for being a long-time loyal customer. Growth is only possible by poaching customers. Case-in-point, I just switched over my home services from Shaw to Telus since Telus was able to offer me better Internet speed and they're willing to give me a massive bill credit to offset the contract penalty I will have to pay for breaking Shaw's contract early while maintaining the same bill amount.

The Big 3 have been plagued by the "shiny object" syndrome for a long time where they're constantly in acquisition mode, treating their new customers better than existing ones, spending insane amounts of money to market and attract new customers instead of treating their existing ones better. Maybe customer churn looks better to their stockholders at least on paper of "how many new customers they've acquired" this quarter. I'm really an old customer of Rogers, Shaw, and Telus, but their systems see me as being a "new" customer -- even though they just reactivate my old account number from before. lol Go figure. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This is definitely a hot deal if you can get it for this price. I wonder if Koodo service is good since I went with Fido instead because of its backup GSM system when both Fido and Koodo had the same deal years ago...

It's up to you to advocate and fend for yourself. Even better if the providers are willing to compete for your business.

Thanks for the heads-up OP!

Hopefully there are some awesome deals this year on BF. BF is still 2 months away. Sigh. Neutral Face
Why settle for MSRP when you can wait and get it at a lower price? 😉

That is a good deal, but it's a win-back deal and it's ymmv. Correct?

You can't just hit up Telus and ask for the deal. If anyone can post a link where we can take advantage of this Telus deal, it would be greatly appreciated. Smiling Face With Open Mouth

I hate this. This is basically the standard practice for home Internet which is now trickling over to cell phones plans. First they gave us 1 year discounted plans then they made it 6 months, then 3 months became standard. I hate having to keep track of my services and their promo rates. Screw the telecoms

Any news when Koodo or Fido for that matter will offer 5G service?

One thing I noticed with virgin when comparing carriers is their phone prices are about 20-25% higher when financing vs purchasing outright from the manufacturer. Koodo and Fido are nearly equal to the manufacture when financing the phone over 2 years. I checked a couple Samsungs last week and was quite surprised. Virgin seems to be a better deal only if you buy your phones outright from apple, Samsung etc.
