WIND Mobile Promo: 1 Month Free for New Mobilicity/Public Mobile Switchers

Share:

WIND Mobile has a new promo coming on May 1 which aims to lure over customers from rival newer entrants Mobilicity (going broke) and Public Mobile (just got bought out by TELUS).

According to the RedFlagDeals forums, the following promo beginning in May will offer switchers their first month free. If these Mobilicity/Public Mobile switchers bring their unlocked AWS device (such as an iPhone), they will get a free WIND Mobile SIM card, worth $25:

Beginning Thursday May 1st, 2014…NEW Clients who sign up and activates for ANY WIND MOBILE plan and port in their Mobilicity OR Public Mobile number (at the time of activation) will receive their monthly plan fee for free. AND If you bring your unlocked AWS Compatible device to WIND, you will receive the $25 SIM CARD for free.

The timing of this offer begins as Public Mobile 220,000 customers switch over to their new Telus 4G network in May. This move by Telus requires all Public Mobile users to purchase new compatible phones, which as you can imagine has left some customers disgruntled. I’m sure WIND Mobile is targeting these switchers in this latest promo.

As for Mobilicity, earlier this month they accepted a $350 million takeover offer from Telus, the latter’s third attempt to acquire the new carrier. Just last week Ottawa was rumoured to be pressuring Telus to drop their Mobilicity bid. The latter only has enough cash to stay afloat for a couple more months, so this WIND promo debuts at an opportune time to generate some leads.

Let us know if you’re an existing Mobilicity or Public Mobile user ready to switch over to WIND Mobile. The recent $39 Unlimited Spring Promo with U.S. roaming is eligible as part of this offer.

    I’m with fido and I want to switch but I’m extremely afraid that it will be a really bad decision due to the bad connection(s)

  • What location are you at? I am in GTA and to me, Wind’s reception is at least 90% comparable that of Fido. No LTE is not an issue to me for as long as you are not streaming video.

    Is this deal good for existing Fido customers?

    I found from asking around the connection issues really depends on your phone, if you buy a top of the line phone you shouldn’t have to many issues. If bell does not cooperate in July I will have to move.

    Yes, it is a great deal for anyone who wants real unlimited calling, texting, and real unlimited data for $40/month. Though the data has a softcap of 6gb, at least WIND won’t charge you overages and you can keep using the data. None of the Big3 nor Big3Jrs, can offer you this without giving you a plan over $90/month. The money I save is now going towards paying for gas that seems to be on the raise.

    As others have said, it depends on where you live. I switched from Bell first to their 30 dollar unlimited plan and then to their 39 dollars Canada/US unlimited plan. It’s obviously not LTE but I am saving a lot of money compared to what I was paying on Bell and I don’t have to worry about overages or roaming fees when I visit the US.

    Here in Vancouver, I had no signal on Bell on the sky train once I was into the underground on the Expo line so I did not lose anything there but I have no signal on Wind at all on the Canada line whereas I did have signal on previous carriers. Since I don’t live on the Canada line, it’s not a big deal but that is something to consider. AWS has problems with a lot of concrete.

    Thx. But is this promotion only good for Public Mobile and Mobilicity customers only or is good for Fido customers as well?

  • cct416

    Thx.

  • Ari

    The specific promo on this page here? Probably not but the 39 dollar CA/US one but you would have to pay for the SIM in that case. I’m going to test out the US data in a few days from now in Los Angeles.

  • Nexzen

    It fully says for public mobile and mobilicity customers. What in the world made you think Fido customers are eligible. I don’t understand….

  • Nexzen

    That’s the beauty of no contracts, switch wherever you want, anytime you want.
