Yeah I meant to track my 10 hours
You get an email notifying you when you are approaching the 10hr limit I believe...


One thing I am hoping the industry shifts towards is low $20-$30 plans with data under 1GB....


I want to get my parent's a phone plan with a little bit of data (say 500MB/ month) so they can check their emails, FB, Whatsapp etc....

The $5 Mobile TV feature equates to 10 hours right? If I'm with Virgin using the Bell TV app how do I keep track of my usage so I don't go over?
You get a text from Virgin when you reach 9.5 hours.

If they change the rules so companies like Ting can operate in Canada, then it's possible.
Based on my usage, I would be paying only $26 with Ting. But I'm paying $34 with Fido..and that's with the extra effort haggling...for a temporary credit.

It'll be kinda like TekSavvy MVNO for internet, but with wireless instead. Not sure why they didnt do that instead of focusing on a 4th carrier.
Cell plans - anything more than $10/gb is a ripoff.

That is a very good question, ask your MPP.

Any thoughts on this:

I keep getting calls from Virgin, not picking up their calls however. I am on the TBAY plan, do you guys think they want to cancel it?

- Thanks

interesting.....probably not to cancel because if they wanted to cancel your plan/number - they would just do it...


They don't leave a VM? Maybe it is a marketing call?

Well it's a series of missed calls. They call at least once or twice a day. I called the number back the first time and it was a Virgin number.
No VM's left. That could be so, but marketing calls from a company like this aren't that persistent are they :/

Whatever it is, not answering the call is not going to avoid whatever it is they are calling for. In fact, it's too your advantage to answer the call!

And, no, it has nothing to do with cancelling your TBay plan, unless you've been a bad boy. I can't believe how many people are paranoid that whenever Virgin calls them or emails them that it's because they are cancelling their Tbay plan, lol.
