Xploremobile - Low Cost Smartphone Device Tabs and Data Plans

https://www.xploremobile.ca/

Don’t know why very few RFDers jumped on this.

You can get iPhone 12’s with their low data plans, starting at $35. Instead of the big 3’s $60 a month plans!

I don’t understand why people are paying $65, $75, $85 per month plans (and still pay $45/month for the phone so total’s like $110-$130/month) just to be able to get iPhone 12 Pro’s when you can go with this carrier and put it on a Tab 40 while choosing the minimum $35 plan. Total would only be like $75!!!

Isn’t this company great?

@smartcdn2, you can only get a plan with them if you live in Manitoba?

$40 x 24 + $440 = $1400 which is retail price of iPhone 12 Pro from Apple.

The $35 plan seems pretty expensive for what you get.

Most RFDers don't live in Manitoba.

Having been a Xplornet satellite internet customer for several years, I can't really recommend the company.

So is the new RFD rule that deals for specific provinces like Manitoba should be downvoted, removed or excluded?

Which other province does not qualify?

Not at all. I'm always happy to see deals from provinces other than Ontario.

I did not downvote your post, I merely tried to answer your question about why I thought not many RFDers were jumping on this "deal"

No -- but it is helpful to post that the deal is only available in Manitoba. It saves the other 96.3% of Canadian from clicking the link. Such as myself.

The first question you asked,

That's because 96.3% of us aren't seeking out Manitoba only deals, nor can those Canadians get these deals, so something like 3.3% of Canadians actually live in this province and could get it. Hence very few.

Just change your title that lets readers know that this is Manitoba only.

BTW: Weren't you talking about Simply Connected in another thread? Just wondering which one you are choosing,

Let me guess: you came here to downvote a deal just because you don’t need it. Well, you better get busy poring over the entire website to look for deals that don’t apply to you just so you can downvote it. Otherwise you are a hypocrite.

If you are genuinely and respectfully asking, it seems there are quite a few choices for someone looking at a basic plan:
1. Citynet
2. Zoomer
3. Simply Connect
4. Xploremobile
5. Lucky mobile
6. Public mobile (3G only)

No, I came genuinely asking what your plan was, and to request you change your title to indicate Manitoba only. This is a common curtesy that most posters do, for example, BC/AB and Quebec quite often have special deals and this will be indicated so others don't waste their time. Generally, posters will use abbreviation for provinces (so Manitoba is MB).

I confused Exploremobile with something that is in Ontario and some other parts of Canada, and that was Xplornet. It was the reason why I clicked the this thread, I had no idea it was MB only. IT seems that perhaps Exploremobile is part of Bell, though I could be wrong.

I am glad you found the other companies, Cityfone, Zoomer and Simply Connect are run by the same people, and piggy back off of the Rogers network. I believe that Lucky Mobile is 3G only, if that doesn't bother you. Chatr might be available in Manitoba as well and it is also 3G. Public Mobile, Lucky Mobile and Chatr all have similar plans, though run by different companies. However, if you like being helpful, Public Mobile has a forum that you can become a member of, and if you post a lot, and help people out, you can get a good discount on your line (when I was with them, I was getting close to $10 additional discount, mostly from forum help).

Because very few RFDers live in Manitoba?

Also their iPhone pricing is hardly competitive compared to Fido, Koodo etc.
