Wow.

Thank God I'm on the $48 MB/SK plan - I'd never pay the above for phone usage.

Hmmmmm.

Now I'm torn...

$38/mo Public Mobile, 2 GB of data, province-wide calling only.
$50/mo Koodo, 2GB of data, 500 Canada wide minutes and 1000 LD minutes.

Are these the best 2 BYOD plans available?

It was actually the easiest signup I've ever done, so I'm not sure why you believe it to be difficult.

How is going to Koodo store then doing all the steps that we aren't allowed to name here (RFD rules) easier than 1 click order online?

Because all you do at the Koodo store is sign up for any Ontario plan then go home and do the 1 click order online.

It's pretty simple, but I'm not forcing you to do it. Just doesn't make sense to me that someone would choose not do it because of a time investment, especially considering how much better of a plan it is for the same price plus the savings it could provide to others not on the plan.

Blows my mind - these people will then complain about how expensive their monthly bills are.

Kinda glad that WIND is just alright in my area. Why is it everyone outside of MB/SK gets hosed? $75 for 4GB?

Just signed up for the FIDO tablet plan a couple weeks ago, $15 for 3GB.

Anyway, I digress
Why can't we all just get along?

You are free to name the steps here. For the amount of money you'd save, it doesn't seem like much hassle, IMO

It's also skepticism this plan will stick around. I know it's been around a couple years but all good things come to an end eventually.

It's pretty high profile now that it's made the news.

Oh really? Thought the details were culled from the thread here. Well then, if anybody else is reading and wondering (I didn't write this obviously):

To get started here are the steps you will need to follow:
1) Go to any local Koodo Store / Kiosk.
2) Ask for a MB # (Being Specific with city name helps) with the cheapest Month-to-Month (Post-Paid) plan (If they do not give MB#, get a local # for ON/BC/AB)
3) Do not insert the SIM into your phone (if you absolutely must, then you can use it, I recommend just completing the process first)
4) Go home, sign up for Self-Serve account using the same email address you provided them at sign up / log into your Self-serve account.
5) If you got the MB# then wait until next billing cycle (usually 4-9 Days -- can check online in your account*)
-- If you got a ON / BC / AB #, change your # online to a MB (Click on Self Serve -- Phone Services -- Change Number)
6) On 1st Day of your billing cycle log in to self serve account - Change plan to $48 MB (Click on Self Serve -- Phone Services -- Change my plan)
7) Wait 24 hours**, Port - In your #. (Click on Self Serve -- Phone Services -- Change Number)

*It helps to have it show "Manitoba" in the top right corner on the website.
** Waiting 24 hours after changing your plan to port in your # saves you from getting double-billed ($48 for the MB# + $48 for the # you port in), Its nothing bad as the system will automatically adjust for it NEXT month or you can call in to Koodo and their helpful staff will be happy to assist you, but why bother them when you don't have to?.

What do you require to Port in?
- Account #
- PIN on the account If there is one (You can call in your current carrier / network to get this information).
- Account holder name (w/ previous carrier that you are porting from and yes you can port in from a account that was under someone else's name -- simply explain the relationship in the additional info box provided on the site)

How long does the Port in Process take? Any glitches?
- Usually takes 5 minutes but it can take as long as 24 hours (Extremely rarely to take that long but all will work out as long as it does not give you any error messages when you click Submit for the port in-request). If you do run into a problem, you can always call Koodo customer service and request assistant but I would request that you gather the required info first and take your time.
- Sometimes your incoming calls may not work right away or your Voicemail may still forward to your previous carrier, this resolves within 24 hours at most on its own -- don't panic.

What is this bonus shock free data? Is that just an extra bandwidth or is there some catch?

So how would this work if you already have one phone on this plan and would like to add another. I mean when you sign up they must see that you have an account already with the 48$ plan so does that put you at risk and do they question that or do they just mind their business and sign you up for another local number?

I remember going to one of the Koodo kiosks and asking for a QC number in that $34 plan with 1Gb of Data Unlimited calls/text. I've never had a problem and my Billing address is BC, but I know that's not technically legal.

Now I'm thinking, maybe I should get this $50 plan and live worry free. :)

Actual it is easier now. As squadz mentioned....just go into your local Koodo store and get any ONT plan (get cheapest rate plan)..

Everything else you can do online yourself....
