Bell And Virgin Mobile Announce Two New Smartphone Plans ($50 & $65)

Share:

Some new plans were just announced by both Bell and Virgin Mobile earlier this weekend. With smartphones rising in popularity, the demand for new smartphone plans are at an all-time high. So Bell and Virgin Mobile have announced both a $50 and $65 smartphone plan. Could this be just a coincidence that Bell announced their Q2 earnings just days prior?

Now, here are the newly announced plans:

$50 Smartphone Plan 

  • 200 anytime minutes
  • Unlimited evening and weekends starting at 6PM
  • Unlimited Canada-wide calling to 10 buddies
  • Unlimited Canada, U.S., International text and picture messaging
  • Voicemail and Caller ID
  • 100MB data, or Unlimited BlackBerry social

$65 Smartphone Plan

  • 200 anytime minutes
  • Unlimited evening and weekends starting at 6PM
  • Unlimited Canada-wide calling to 10 buddies
  • Unlimited Canada, U.S., International text and picture messaging
  • Voicemail and Caller ID
  • 10 hours Mobile TV (Bell only)
  • 1GB data

These plans are available right now to our knowledge. All current and new postpaid customers can grab this plan today if they so choose.

The comments regarding the new plans are very well mixed. Many have expressed anger towards the carriers, for example, Ron Mexico said, “worst plans they’ve released in a while, $50 with 200mb, really?” In reality though, these prices are typical throughout Bell, Telus, and Rogers.

What are you paying for your current mobile plan?
