Wind and Mobilicity have some enticing voice and data plans that the ‘Big 3’ cannot compete with. But, the newer entrants stumble based on the fact their AWS network does not support the latest GSM smartphones, such as the iPhone.
In an attempt to entice Wind and Mobilicity users, Rogers/Fido are offering a $100 credit to users that port their wireless numbers over. This was noted in an internal posting that is a ‘competitive response to our competitors’ recent offers’. These offers Rogers is referring to include Wind’s offering of $100 to port over other customers, and Mobilicity offering up to $150 (dealers are even advertising this on Craigslist).
For those considering this $100 credit, note a three year contract is required and you must port your wireless number over to Rogers (tell reps to use the SOC code TAGSRN008). You will see the credit on your 1st or 2nd month’s invoice. The offer is available from March 27th to April 1st, 2012.
Is a $100 credit worth your time for a three year contract? It’s up to you to decide.
