Did you try to say give me another day to think it over or get another rep to give you the deal you really wanted?realizing that she you must be worshipped was having freedom mobile headaches with poor cell coverage for months.
Yeah I asked for them to call me back next day. Rep told me that they do not work on weekends (but I think that's ymmv based on other posts). The rep called back later that night. I guess at that point the rep said he would put it down as I declined the offer.

At the end of the day my wife got her plan and I didn't want to or have the patience to keep trying.

Perhaps this is the same in your case?
Yeah I ported to freedom and was there for 4 days. When I mentioned my wife's account on freedom, after looking it up the rep mentioned only her account he offered her number the 45/25 but would not budge on mine.

So all of my sims arrived and I'm trying to port out my REAL numbers into freedom but now the problem is its been almost 24h and although my REAL numbers show up on my freedom account, the physical sims are still showing the temp numbers and the reps I've been talking to insist that it'll change once I top up the remaining lines. One of the reps I talked to created a ticket for it to be resolved in 1-2 business days but I've seen somewhere on the forum that they have the power to complete the port right away? Anyone else having this problem and know what I should do?

Now I’m paying $35 month for 3. So $105. $117.50 after taxes.

That’s a difference of $156.80 per month. So maybe a little over 2.5 months but also under 3 months and it doesn’t even take into account the waived activation fee and $50 bill credit.

I also have Telus fibre so I may get a discount for having multiple services? Idk.

So really my time to break even on switching from bell and getting these rates is probably more accurately 2 months.

But it took me a single 10 minute conversation to do it. And I didn’t have to carry my old line at the same time or pay freedom a top up fee either. While some people get the winback deal first try and others don’t get the $45 deal at all. Some are on the third try. To me this was worth it. I don’t have the time or patience to invest in “trying “ to get a deal that may never happen.
Thanks for the clarification. The math does indeed check out.

Activation fees waived and a $50 bill credit for each. At the time the advertised deal was $100 in savings per line from Telus.

Then I ported my lines from Bell.

After my first bill I called Sam and had my lines changed to the $45/25gb plans.

So I didn’t pay freedom any fees for a top up because I didn’t use them. I didn’t pay Telus and Bell at the same time because I ported immediately.

So I paid Sam $450, but I also get $150 in bill credits.

Sam can also tell you how to get referral credits too, but I couldn’t be bothered because it requires extra steps.

can someone please provide me the Peace Of Mind CONNECT code? I tried to change from old Peace Of Mind plan to the new shareable Peace Of Mind Connect plan but got refused. The code I had (PPOM25G45) which I provided to them, they said they dont have it in their system. I dunno if this code is of old plan or the new data shareable one. TIA

Simple port to Telus for 5-6 days with $80 plan
Use 4gb data make at least and hours calls, come back to freedom. You will get winback call in 2-3 days. Choose $45/25gb plan.

Anyway I can give you my number so you can drop my number to the rep? Also can you call customer care and see if $20 US roaming add on per month is available to you? Thanks

Just a SIN number for sole proprietorship. Business license for a bigger business.

Would there be a step by step to a business line for the $25 for 25 gb? Because that sounds amazing

As far as I know, it's the same steps listed in OP and thread summary, but business lines instead of personal lines.

Isnt the post you quoted quite some time ago? I believe that was the older winback plan where data is not sharable between lines in account but watch/tablet can be added and have their own 1-2gb. I could be wrong.
The current winback plan has all data from all lines pooled together and for $10/mo your watch/tablet can access that pool.
