Samsung Instinct

Samsung’s iPhone killer is coming to Canada lauching on both Bell Mobility and Telus Mobility this summer.  The device has been avaliable in the USA from Sprint since June 19th and has been flying off the shelves costing only $129.99 on a two year term.

Bell’s Instinct ranges from $149.95 (on a three year term) to $449.95 (purchased outright).  Rumor has it the Bell will be offering a $10/month unlimited data plan for the device.  This would not be the first time Bell has offered cheap unlimited data for a “smartphone”.  Back in November Bell launched the HTC Touch and announced that the $7/month unlimited data option would be compatable.

Telus has annouced that the device coming but has not release pricing at this time.  Telus’ $7/month unlimited data option is listed on their website as a feature that can be added to the device.

TNT! Coming Soon to Virgin USA

Sporting a full color screen inside and monochromatic screen outside, for caller id, this blue flip phone will be making its way to Virgin Mobile USA in the near future.

I wish I could list more features for this Kyocera but there are not a lot for this cheap mobile.

Look for the TNT! for only $19.99 at stores or order it online and get it shipped to your home for free.

Virgin Mobile USA has launched a new rate plan to remain competive in the US Mobile market.  Virgin now offers UNLIMITED calling for only $79.99/month another $10/month will give you UNLIMITED texting.

Comparing to AT&T’s and Verizon’s unlimited plans which run at $99.99/month plus unlimited texting for another $10/month-those on/or soon to be on Virgin are getting a great deal!

Furthermore, Virgin does not require a credit check, has no activation fee, and is contract free.

Head over to the virgin mobile usa website to learn more!
