WIND Mobile Plan Information

October 29th, 2009


With the CRTC’s decision today to block WIND Mobile (Globalive Wireless) from launching in Canada at this time, HowardForums member “Windsider” decided it would be safe to leak some plan information.

Three plans were to be available at launch, sorry no monthly pricing was given:

Chat (basic plan)
100 province-wide minutes

Always Talk (mid range plan)
province-wide “local” minutes

Always Shout (high end plan)
province-wide “local” minutes
unlimited texting to Canada and the US

All plans were to include: missed call alert, caller id, call waiting, call forwarding, conference calling, Wind-to-Wind Calling (Nationwide).

In addition to the three base calling plans, WIND mobile also planned to launch data and prepaid services.  The data plan was to be called “Infinite Internet” featuring unlimited data (tethering, downloading, streaming, etc.).  Prepaid service was to be referred to as “Pay Before” which gave the consumer access to the same monthly plans as the “Pay After” (postpaid) service.

Thanks “Windsider”.

    looks like the same basic crap that the other mobile companies are offering!! where is the big “we’re different’, ‘we’re listening to what you want’?? seems like marketing hoopla. I’m SOOO disappointed!

    How is the same as other mobile companies?? Last time I checked my plan didnt include free Caller ID? Thats an extra $7 or whatever its been raised to in my pocket. Plus there’s no pricing yet for these plans so how do we know they are going to be the same??

    Don’t forget to mention the unlimited data: no carrier offers that for Blackberry.

    Dan, all cellular carrier’s will offer free caller ID and voicemail if you ask retentions. Also, when WIND launches just call your provider and mention its free elsewhere, they will be willing to help you.

    Chris, Bell and Telus currently have unlimited data plans for their CDMA network which can be transferred over to the HSPA network as well. Again, done through customer relations, but its not standard like WIND is offering.

    you cannot take the $15 unlimted internet for cdma over to HSPA

    they dont care how loyal you are.

    and everything is standard for wind, which you have to beg for with other 3 carriers.
