Mobilicity: $20 Unlimited Provice Wide or $30 Unlimited Canada Wide Plans
Mobilicity has a couple very interesting plans out right now. First, spend just $20 (reg. $30) per month for unlimited province wide calling (and more). If you need a bigger plan, then pick unlimited Canada wide calling for $30 per month (was $45).
The idea of only spending $20 per month on my cell bill is very appealing. The $20 plan includes:
- Province-Wide Talk
- North American Text
- Caller ID, Call Waiting & Forwarding, 3-Way calling
- North American Picture Messaging
You get all that for a $20 bill per month. However, you may notice one key thing missing - data. There is no data included with this plan. To add on data would cost $10, so you would be better off stepping up to the $30 plan. However, for those who do not need data (like my father) and who do most of their calling in province (my father), this plan is an inexpensive alternative to other companies.
If you are like me and could not bear to part with your data, then you should go for the $30 plan instead. This plan includes unlimited:
- Canada-Wide Talk
- North American Long Distance
- Global Text
- 30 Minutes North American Voice Roaming
- Voicemail, Caller ID and Call Features
For an extra $10 a month, you can get unlimited talking across Canada and unlimited Data (up to 5GB I think before things slow down). If you have friends or relatives in other provinces (like I do), then this is the better plan. While I love the idea of paying $20 per month, no data is a total deal breaker for me. I would gladly pay $30 per month just to have unlimited data. With Canada wide calling, I can call my friends and family in Alberta when I live in British Columbia. I guess Canada-wide calling is also a necessity for me as my parents live in a different province. Trust me; your mother does not want to hear "Sorry Mom, can't call you. My phone plan doesn't cover your region."
We have seen this deal once before - for Christmas. It was $1 cheaper back then, but with the New Year, many prices have gone up. For only $1 more, this is a fantastic cell plan. I am paying $45 per month for fewer features! If Mobilicity services your area, consider switching and taking advantage of their great cell deals.
