Bell, Rogers, Fido Launch Six Months Unlimited Local Calling Promotion

Share:

March 2010 is turning out to be the month of Canadian wireless carrier promotions!

First Rogers launched their free 6PM early evenings add-on and waived the $35 activation fee (Fido too). Then Bell followed, with Virgin Mobile (only $35 wavier for Virgin), and matched the same promotions. Then Telus followed Rogers/Bell and released their own 6PM free add-on and $35 activation fee waiver. And the promotions don’t stop there!

Effective today for Bell, and effective March 24, 2010 for Rogers, Bell and Rogers are launching a promotion that gives customers six months of unlimited local calling. SIX MONTHS! These carriers are usually providing one month or no months (like Rogers!) of unlimited calling and now they’re giving out SIX!

The six months unlimited local calling bonus is available on the following 3-year term in-market plans from Rogers:

  • Value Plans for phones
  • Value Plans for Smartphones
  • iPhone plans
  • Couples & Family Share Plans
  • All business plans
  • EPP plans

Edit: It has been confirmed that Fido is not going through with the six month promo. It remains with Rogers however.

The six months unlimited local
calling bonus is available on the following 3-year term in-market plans from Bell:

  • Voice Plans for phones
  • Combo Plans for Smartphones
  • iPhone plans
  • Share Plans
  • EPP plans

All new activations will automatically have the six months unlimited local calling bonus automatically added upon activation.

Existing Rogers & Bell Customers

The promotion may also have been extended to existing customers on a reactive basis. There’s no guarantee but call anyways and ask.

What this means is that existing customers must move to an in-market plan (dumping your current plan if it was not released in the last month or so) and renew their plan term for 3 years (does not affect hardware upgrade date). After the plan changes, the six unlimited local calling bonus will be applied manually for existing customers.

This promotion is expiring on March 31, 2010. Now we just need Telus to jump in to make it a party!

So, free $35 activation fees, free 6PM early evenings, and now unlimited local calling for six months. Is that enough to sign for three years?
