Good plan. If you need a local number, try TextNow. It's got some ads, though.

Zoomer removed all individual loyalty plans on May 8.
For subscribers are already on a loyalty plan, don't change it as you will not get it back.
For people still on market plan with limited minutes and don't want to play with VoIP calls, you can switch to the $40.5 market plan with unlimited minutes. Basically, Zoomer raised the price of the old $36 loyalty plan to $40.5 if you need unlimited minutes. Such a sneaky way to raise price...
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.
Public Mobile $36 5GB, $12 250MB, 2x $7 50min/50text, Fido $5 4GB data only plan with a free tablet,
Zoomer $36 loyalty 4GB plan, $0 FPL home phone. Have a better and better day!

Yup I've been a customer for 3 going on 4 years now. Coverage is great if your area has good Rogers coverage. It's somehow even better than when I had Fido coverage even though it's the same network.

Let me know if you have any other questions

I want to renew for another 2 years and am trying to decide which "free" phone to get to resell on Kijiji

The phone that Zoomers is suggesting is the Samsung Galaxy A10e
The phone I had previously was the Motorola G7Play which is now offered "free" with a $30.- plan

The strange thing is that with the $18.- plan, Zoomers values the Motorola at $300 and the Samsung at only $250.-
I would have expected the opposite since I can get the Motorola with a lower priced plan.

Anyway - what I really wanted some input on - which of those two phones would be the better one to buy for resale on Kijiji
Motorola G7Play is $199.99 at Costco these days

For those on loyalty plans, are we able to re-up to get a new phone? My 2 years are coming up this summer, but do I have to downgrade to one of their market plans to renew my contract?

My 2 years are coming up shortly as well.
Never thought of renewing this way - I would expect everyting stays the same as far as the plan is concerned except that one makes a 2-year commitment and if you want out of it you need to pay the remainder of the amount still owing on the new phone.
I would probably do the renewal via chat so you have a record of it.

wth srsly? they removed all loyalty plans? wow.... I was gonna switch my loyalty plan to this promo for more data but then I procrastinated and didn't do it. Now im kinda glad I didn't. I am guessing they are not coming back anytime soon. I'm no longer on contract, wonder if i can renew a 2-year on the same loyalty plan.
I thought RFD was supposed to help me SAVE money .... -__-|

So if this deal is dead, I think this thread should be moved to Expired deals. Too bad. It was great while it lasted. Good thing I'm on the loyalty plan.

Hoping that they'll switch over to the A51 soon. Cost is about the same, and it's been out for six months now.

You can continue with your current loyalty plan
1. on month-to-month basis
OR
2. sign a 2 years contract and get a free phone

Has anyone on Zoomer had problems receiving picture messages? Most of my messages come through iMessage which isn't a problem but a buddy had tried to send Picture Messages from his Android device and I never get them. His normal text messages come through fine. Ironically he is on Rogers, which should be using the same network, any ideas?

Looks like Zoomer needs to think about stepping up their game.
I just received an offer from Virgin Mobile for 8GB Date, unlimited minutes at $45.- per month.

only time I've had issue was when my data was turned off. After turning it back on, it can be a bear to convince the system to download it, but it usually works after a day

So $9 more for 3 more GB? Depends on usage I guess, for me that would be $9 per month wasted, don't get close to data usage these days with WiFi everywhere.

I was thinking now that the loyalty plan has disappeared, with Zoomers one has to go to the $45.- plan for unlimited minutes and 4GB of data vs the Virgin offer of twice the data for the same price.
So even with the 10% Zoomer discount, this would make Virgin only $4.50 more for an extra 4GB of data.

Not that I would switch, but I think Zoomer needs to think a bit more carefully about their pricing and specifically the elimination of the loyalty offer.
