anybody know what happens if you run out of data? Does Shaw cut you off and you have to pay for extra data (ex: $10 for 1gb)... or are you charged really high overage fees

Maybe after Rogers takes over Shaw ...they would be able to offer something similar here in Winnipeg ... hahaha ... - in Winnipeg here Shaw doesn't even offer Mobile services yet..

I did say MAYBE ... as I got no clue :)

You just get cut off, until you pay for another addon.

Just tried via chat. Could get 3GB for $10 in Rollover data, but already have 2GB in Rollover data and the 3GB couldn't be added to it. Supposedly the 3GB for $10 in rollover expires April 1st. Have to go to a store to get the $10 for 3GB month to month deal or really any other plan deals, is what I was told.

Edit: See my later posts. I chatted with a second agent and had zero issues. Added instantly.

Great in my neck of the woods (Vancouver West, Richmond). Sometimes better than on my Bell/Virgin line.

Metro Vancouver when outside is not bad. It's well below average inside buildings and/or parking lots. Of course, it really depends on where you use it which is why you see some people that love it and others that hate it. If you're on the go a lot, going to a lot of different places and never want to miss a call, then I would probably look elsewhere....

I wouldn't use it for my own personal line... although at $10/3gb... I might need to rethink it.. lol

2 pages in and we still can’t confirm (besides OP) if this is only for new sign up or can be apply to existing as well. I mean the 3GB / $10 plan.... and not the 3GB / $15 plan someone mentioned previously.

Out of curiosity, are you using a phone that's on their compatibility list?

Completely disagree! Shaw has limited coverage. You get what you pay for. Ironwood, Terra Nova, Garry Pointe/Steveston area the signal is terrible. Went to VGH, no coverage.

Luckily Fido pulled me back $35.00/25gb. Goes to $45.00 after two years. I was allowed to port 10 numbers. Got my entire family on the deal.

I was just able to get the 3GB for $10/month via chat. Was on By The Gig, and an existing customer. Was told this in chat "This offer is intended to be only available for new customers through select channels, however I can add this for you. Please give me a few moments."

And got this email soon after:

"Hello,

You have successfully changed your rate plan from By The Gig 4G LTE (T0) to Special 3GB Shaw Nationwide(T0) on the number ########## on your Shaw Mobile account. If you did not request this change, please call us at 1(888) 472-2222 or dial 611 from your phone.

Thank you,
