According to user ‘chadw01’ on RFD, the following text message was sent out this morning:
Freedom Mobile Special Gift: Thank you for being a Freedom Mobile customer! As a special gift to you, we added an extra 10GB/month of Freedom Fast LTE data to your line so you can do more for less with your wireless service! There is no action required, the data was automatically applied to your line. You will continue receiving this free bonus data, as long as you keep your current plan or upgrade. Check out MyAccount to see your total data allotment and monitor your usage.
The targeted user is on a $45/10GB friends and family plan, with a $10/1GB add-on line on the account.
Freedom Mobile says the free 10GB per month data is added automatically, requiring no action from customers to opt-in. As long as customers stay on their current plan or upgrade, the 10GB bonus data will remain.
Recently, we’ve seen carriers offer $45/25GB ‘winback’ plans, targeting former customers that switched to Freedom Mobile or Shaw Mobile, as the latter has an introductory $45/25GB plan for B.C. and Alberta.
If you have your iMessage settings to block out numbers not in your contact list, you may want to check to see if you received this data bonus text from Freedom Mobile.
