Koodo Mobile to Offer Data Only Plans In the Near Future

Data only plans seem pretty hard to come by in Canada, but that is going to change soon. According to MobileSyrup, sources tell them Telus’ discount brand, Koodo Mobile is set to offer data only plans ‘in the future’, with no requirement for voice or text plans. No prices were revealed, but given the fact more and more tablets are flooding the market, data only plans make sense.

Koodo iPhone users could also benefit from data only plans. With apps such as Skype, Viber (great call quality), WhatsApp, and iMessage upcoming in iOS 5′s Fall release, voice minutes are becoming a thing of past for those don’t require them.

    I wonder if this will only be available for a device like a MiFi or mobile hotspot.

    I am sorry if my queries seems off topic but wanted to get every one’s
    attention as i need a solution to my problems soon. I have been with
    Fido for almost 10 years and signed my last 3 years contract with Fido in
    July 2010 with an iPhone 4 and currently only on my 13th month of my 36
    month contract. My dad lives in the middle east and last week he has
    been diagnosed with Leukemia and I would have to fly over there to be by
    his side. I should be there for at least couple of months until my other
    brother comes in. So i called Fido and asked if there is any way i can
    unlock my iphone 4 and use it there. Turns out it will cost me $50 for
    ECF( which to my surprise i found quite inexpensive)  to get out of my contract since it was done after June 2010  and I m in Quebec and due to Bill 60 and etc. But
    unfortunately regardless of me paying the ECF and coming out of the
    contract they will still not unlock my phone until July 2013 when the
    full 36 months expire. My iPhone 4 is on 4.3.3 firmware and to the best of
    my knowledge i cannot unlock it through cydia or anyt other means, so that i can
    use it. My only option is to go the legal way but FIDO wouldn’t. R they
    right on not allowing me to unlock my phone despite me not being in any
    contract with them and can b out of it by paying the ECF and also willing
    to pay the $50 fees to unlock it? Please help me guys and give me any
    advice on how i can have my phone legally unlocked by FIDO,since I’m
    flying on the August 18th,,,I have been using iphone since its early days when the iPhone 2g came out and i have so much into in it that it is going to  be extremely difficult to just start using any phone in thhe middle east,,,please help…thanks!!!

    Hope more carriers follow and offer data only plans for smartphones.

    I could easily cut my bill in half if I took out voice and text from my plan and replaced those with VoIP and messaging apps. I hardly top 100mins a month now since I got my iPhone 3G back in 2008

    This is what I’m thinking for my next phone. Right now my best option would be $5 250 text and $25 500mb from Fido. $30/mo for everything I need, and add $2.50/mo for skype unlimited.
