Breaking: Bell iPhone Plan Prices Revealed

In an anonymous tip received, the early plan prices for the upcoming Bell iPhone may have been revealed. This news comes as Bell is set to unveil their iPhone 3G/3GS on November 4 2009.

It would seem that Bell Mobility will have numerous options for customers to choose from (aside from their normally offered plans).

The initial offerings for the Bell iPhone 3G/3GS plans include three four Individual (consumer) Plans, each that will include daytime minutes, evening/weekend minutes and additional bonuses/promos. Each plan will allow for promotional pricing of the iPhone 3G/3GS which is $99 (iPhone 3G 8GB), $199 (iPhone 3GS 16GB), and $299 (iPhone 3GS 32GB):

Update (11/04/09): You heard it here first! As exclusively reported by iPhoneinCanada.ca, Bell has officially announced their iPhone plans and they closely match our exclusive early report.

Update (11/05/09): We have received reports that aside from the less than stellar policies Bell has with the iPhone, some users are having success. iPhoneinCanada.ca reader rr2breslau had purchased an iPhone 3GS outright from Rogers and since that time had a non-contract plan from Bell which he was using with a Motorola device.

With the Bell iPhone being released, rr2breslau put a Bell SIM card into his unlocked Rogers iPhone and also got Bell to add a $30 non-contracted Data plan to his existing Bell account. After updating the IPCC file through iTunes (done automatically), rr2breslau has been able to use his Rogers iPhone (unlocked) on Bell with all features working including Calls, Messages, and Data.

If any Bell customers have any similar experiences or tips, please email us.

    That doesn't include voice plans right?!
    If not.. Still better off with 30$/6GB…

    Thanks for the great info guys!!

  • Spiffy

    55 dollar plan comes with 1 gb and 300 minutes
    75 dollar plan comes with 2 gb abd 400 minutes + visual voice mail and caller id

  • scott987

    I still get more with my current Rogers plan.

    450 daytime
    caller id
    iPhone value pack including mms
    my5 Canada wide
    6gb
    $90 plus taxes

  • Spiffy

    I am looking to get a low voice high data plan. I won't use 200 minutes, nevermind 300. But I would like some more data…

  • junohd

    I have a great voice plan with Bell right now and am only looking to add data when I purchase the iPhone… I hope they allow you to purchase the iPhone with your current voice plan and then have the ability to add the data separately… otherwise I cannot get the iphone because these plans are so much more than I pay currently

  • elducker

    I don't understand the 6GB thing. 90$???!!!! That's nuts.
    When I first got my phone (Sept.2008) I was on the 6GB plan + voice and was paying about 100$/month. I never used more than 350MB…even when the phone was still a novelty for me. Now I pay 62$ after tax for everything, and still use on average around 300MB a month.
    I am an AVID data user…what are people doing over a 3G network that justifies paying for 6GB of data? It must be TONS of video. Well for the same price I have 30GB with high speed internet at home, and download my videos at 2x the speed using WiFi.
    Rogers is making a killing off the 6gb subscribers…

  • scott987

    One word my friend: tethering.

  • Dusty

    So far im still sticking with my Rogers plan.

  • Hugo l

    I called them several times and each time they told me, that since I was already in contracts, that

    A) I would need to purchase the device at full price (699). This way i keep my current contract plus pick whatever datas plan I need if I need one

    B) Break my contract (400$) and purchase a new plan +iphone at 199$ (but ill loose mu crrent plan wich I think is hard to beat

    I think I will buy it full price cause right now I have that plan

    200 minutes long distance call
    Caller ID / message box
    1 number of choice is unilimited
    6PM night call

    For 33$ including all fees and taxes

    Right now 699$ might seem ridiculous to pay, but for the long run, I think I will win since a voice plan like I have will probably cost 15$ more per month

    36 x 15$ = 540$
    Iphone = 199$
    Total = 739$

    Not a big win, but at least I keep my contracts that I want

  • Hugo l

    You are in the same boat as me. In contract = no iphone unless pay full price

  • tazCorp

    All i need is 1gb data, 200 min, unlimited after 6, top10, and skype 10$mo for unlimited calling arroun the world with rogers thats 55$ plus tax :)

  • tazCorp

    Oh well, almost 70 with skype

  • 1His_Nibs1

    As I've said in other posts on the same or similar topics: Nothing new here. No cavalier attitudes regarding undercutting Rogers/Fido's plans/rates, no awsome deals which would make people with another carrier break their current contracts to come running in droves to Bell.COLLUSION PEOPLE. That's the word here in Canada for wireless subscribers.Are we/is anyone surprised?

  • Bob

    That's really a useless post. You have NO information.

  • TheFixItGuy

    I have a 3G and 3GS on contract with Rogers and I pay around $160 a month for the two phones. I imagine Bell will allow people to keep their Voiceplans and just add data to the subscription. It is great to see the iPhone finally coming to all the major carriers. I work for Rogers as a Wireless Tech Professional and from what I have been hearing, Bell and Telus's HSPA network is going to be pretty rough at launch. It is great to see that our carriers are finally making changes tho.

  • ruffdeezy

    The minutes unknown part is quite significant. But I would be willing to switch from Fido if it meant getting 2 iPhones, 2gb shared data, including vvm and text for less than $120 total.

  • 1His_Nibs1

    If your comment was directed @ me I'm just going by what X1Zero has posted here in regards to how much $$$ for 36 month contract and how much data is included. Based on that NOTHING SIGNIFICANT amongst the other carriers plans has changed!!!!!!!!!!!

  • dmitri67

    I don't belive it, my current plane with bell 3g phone $70 included unlim. Internet, unlim. Incall,400min airtime, unlim. Messeg,with iPhone will be same

  • junohd

    I sure hope so. A good friend of mine works at Bell and will keep me in the loop about this. If you can't keep your voice plan and add on data then it's bye bye iPhone for me. I will have to stick with my Bberry.

  • junohd

    Yup if they don't allow us to keep our current voice plans I will have to buy it at full price since it will be worth it in the long run

  • James

  • James

    data on the last 2 plans is 2 GB and 3 GB respectively, my apologies

  • djelimon

    Okay i pay 65 a month for 150 minutes plus evenings and weekends, unlimited text, and 6gb data. This is under fido. No way am I switching over to any bell plan and I'm not sure why anyone would choose that pricig over Rogers/fido offerings. not to mention that bells 3g network is an unknown quantity as far as reliability and performance. Why did bell even bother with the iPhone? They aren't even in the game

  • Was told today unlimited data plans were going to Diaspora before iPhone hits.

  • yvrgal

    Bell's 3G Network is reliable. This is already proven because my company uses Bell's Network for the company cellphones. Bell is in the game. I had a Fido account and dropped it like a hot potato because of dropped calls. Sick and tired of it.

  • djelimon

    I'm glad you've had no problem with bells 3g. I was a bit confused b/c I thought they only got the network for the iPhone going in the last month or so. Or are you referring to their other older 3g network? If so then understand I am referrig to their brand new hspa network as being unproven.

    I might be getting good service because of where I live but no dropped calls here.

    As a consumer I really don't see a sane reason to pay more money for less data and marginally more minutes especially since I skype.

  • junohd

    Are the SAF and 911 fees included in the price? For instance the first individual plan is $55 but is that including the SAF and 911 fee?

    I can't believe Bell is charging SAF and 911 fees on top of the plans and Telus is not. Telus' plans seem more attractive

    Sad…packages were close, but tops out at 2GB instead of 3GB. Still might be plenty but never feels good to use your phone and have to keep usage in the back of your mind, especially for the premium you pay.

    The $95 plan does in fact have 3GB. It's a typo online. I just picked one up and have the brochure.

    That's what I thought but I am going to wait for sure

    it's been years since “they have to”… they just continued to charge it after the gov't stopped charging them hence why the class action lawsuit

    Hey can't we just use the nationwide FAB 10 Student Package for pda's with unlimited data for the iphone? I mean they did say that all PDA features will work for the iphones!!!!! Anyone have an inside test on this?

  • http://www.moneymakingscoop.com/ Chris Jacobson

    I wish they'd drop the 36 month commitment already. I can't imagine being tied down to a piece of hardware that long.

  • borodani

    Do they offer any special discounts for students?

    PISSED that Bell will not offer a long time customer… ME… any type of discount on the iPhone. PIIIIIIIISSED! May be time to consolidate with their rival, the just as well hated Rogers. *Sigh

  • Alex

    Don't be an absolute fool! Bell has no choice to give you discounts on iphones thats something apple is very strict on. I'm a bell rep and know the kind of restrictions and barriers we have to manage because of apple.

  • daleneufeld

    Since i got my Iphone on bell, it has been spotty at best.
    Even in Abbotsford BC on Hwy 1 and Sumas, i have no 3g and many time no service.
    I call them and they tell me that they can't trouble shoot unless i am on a land line?? What is that all about?
    how am i to go to a land line if i am broken down on the side of the road or whatever??
    Good thing i had my buddy there with a Rogers iPhone so we trouble shoot mine, and be told that “I was in a dead zone, but they are working on this” is bell really that new to the Fraser valley?? I think not.

  • m7sgill

    Hi, Is this a good deal?
    This is the plan I was quoted from Rogers Retention Department.

    $ 18 Corporate Business Plan (200 Wkly/Unltd Wkend and Unltd Evenings)
    $ 5 text messaging for 2500 texts (unlimited incoming)
    $20 for 1 GB Data Plan (normally 30.00 but they are taking $10 off for the duration of a new 3 year contract)
    $5 unlimited evenings after 6pm and weekends
    $6.95 System Access Fee

    Total approx. $ 55.00 plus tax

    Additional Services
    Exact Pricing

    They are offering me a Blackberry Bold if I wish but I received a gift for 200.00 towards an iphone. I plan to purchase the phone from the Apple store and apply that to the plan. I have checked with Rogers and they will honour that as well (this way I don't have to purchase the phone from a Rogers store)

    Any idea if this is in fact a good deal????
