WIND Mobile: $33/Month Back to School Promo, 2-Year WINDtab Coming August 8

WIND Mobile is introducing a couple changes tomorrow, with one of them being the switch over to two-year WINDtabs and also a $33 per month back to school promo for students, according to two separate reports from MobileSyrup.

The new $33 per month plan back to school promo includes the following:

  • Unlimited province-wide outgoing calls
  • Unlimited incoming
  • Unlimited WIND-to-WIND calls
  • 20 cents per minute Canadian long distance
  • 5 cents per minute US long distance
  • Unlimited Canada/USA SMS/MMS, unlimited international texting
  • Unlimited data
  • World Saver add-on
  • Caller ID, missed call alerts, conference all, call forwarding, call waiting (no voicemail though)
  • one-time processing fee of $25 for existing subscribers to switch to this plan if they are coming down from the $40 plan, but no fee if you are moving up
  • Ends September 30th
We’ve seen users hooking up their unlocked AWS iPhone 5 units to WIND Mobile, so if you’re in an area that supports WIND and you don’t mind not having LTE, this plan will save you money compared to similar offers from Rogers, TELUS and Bell.

As for the new two-year WINDtab, it’s part of their “24 Month Pay Off Promise” where users can get up to $300 off smartphones like normal, but over two years instead of three, based on requirements from the upcoming CRTC-mandated Wireless Code.

This week, Verizon is rumoured to present a formal offer to acquire WIND Mobile, with the deal reported to be in the $700 million range. Despite opposition to Verizon by the Big 3, Ottawa has said the wireless spectrum auction will go on as planned.

iPhone 5 users on WIND Mobile, let us know if you’re going to jump on this!
