Changes to Text Add-Ons: VMC Prepaid

On July 31st Virgin Mobile Canada will be making the following changes to their prepaid text messaging add-ons.

  • $10/month unlimited texting package will increase in price to $15/month
  • $10/month will now get you only 2500 messages (new add-on plan)

Customer currently on the $10 unlimited text messaging plan will continue paying the current monthly price.  If you do not have enough money in your account to cover the grandfathered price you will loose the $10 unlimited texting, one topping up your account you will have to pay $15 for unlimited texting.  Incoming messages will remain free on all text messaging plans.

Rumour 2 Coming to VMC


It may be small but size does not matter anyways-right?  That is the LG Rumour 2 complete with Virgin Mobile Canada branding.  Look for the replacement to the current Rumour  (Rumour 1) to be launching along side the Samsung Vice.  No word on pricing or a launch date.

The Samsung VICE has been spotted on the Virgin Mobile Canada website.  No word yet on launch date or pricing but it should not be far away.


The Samsung VICE has a full QWERTY (slide out) keyboard and standard numeric keyboard.  I will be posting a review of Bell’s Samsung VICE in the coming days so be sure to read it before buying.

Staying Competitive

In an attempt to stay competitive with the other discount providers in Canada (Solo Mobile, Koodo Mobile, and Fido Telephony), Virgin Mobile Canada has added a new plan to their monthly myPlan packages.

100 anytime minutes
unlimited evening a weekends (evenings: 7pm-7am, sat/sun: all day)
250 outgoing text messages (unlimited incoming)

Add $11/month for call display and voicemail throw in your Provincial Tax and the 5% G.S.T. and you have got yourself a decent plan on a low budget.

Best Buy Supports Earth Day

With Earth Day next week, April 22, all the major retailers are getting involved in one way or another.


Bring in your old cellphone to Best Buy next week and get $25 off the purchase of a new phone.  If you are buying a phone priced at $0 you will receive a $25 store credit for accessories.  The $25 accessory credit must be used at the time of purchase and no cash will be given back if the accessory is less than $25.

The trade-in program is only available for new contracts, contract renewals, and upgrades.  Thus prepaid phones are not eligible.   Trade-in incentives are only valid from April 17, 2009 – April 23, 2009 and must be done in-store.

Check out all the trade-in incentives online.

BlackBerry Outage


Looks like most BlackBerry users in Canada and the United States are currently without e-mail service.  From what I have read it appears all service providers are affected by this outage: Rogers, AT&T, Verizon, etc.

Are you experiencing no e-mail service or delays receiving messages, leave a comment below.
