Solo Mobile Releases LG 230

May 6th, 2010

It appears parent company, Bell Mobility Inc., has decided to bring out the defibrillator and zap Solo Mobile back to life.  The discount carrier has basically been kept out of the spot light since Bell assumed full control over Virgin Mobile Canada.

Today the LG 230 appeared on the Solo Mobile website reviving the all but dead company for a few more months.  The LG 230 is a basic flip phone that will set you back an even $100 if purchase outright or an affordable $25 on a 2 year term.

Buy your LG 230 online or at a Solo Mobile dealer near you.

    I am surprised at your comment. Solo is nowhere near “dead”. I am a dealer and we sell tons of them. About half and half Bell or Solo.

    Allow me to further explain my original post.

    While Solo Mobile may still be selling in stores, Bell Canada is doing little for the company. I can not recall the last time Solo had a commercial was on the tv/radio or an ad taken out in the paper/billboard. With the wireless market in Canada changing carriers need to be “shoved” in the face of consumers otherwise they may switch to the new entrants.

    Bell also full acquired Virgin Mobile becoming the first carrier in Canada to have two discount brands. To me it does not make sense for Bell to maintain two discount brands for much longer. With most of the handset releases gong to Virgin and not Solo i thought Bell was slowly killing off the brand. But with the release of the LG 230 (however basic it may be) it will prolong the life of Solo Mobile a bit longer.

    Hopefully that explanation clarifies my defibrillator comment.
