WIND Mobile is is now allowing pay-after customers to pay off their account balance online using either MasterCard or Visa. Once a payment is made it will be automatically credited to the account balance allowing customer to verify the payment has gone through.
Up until now, WIND customers had to phone in to pay their bill if they wanted to use plastic. While online credit payments is a welcome addition, I think it WIND should have had it up and running from launch-6 months ago…
Speaking of launching 6 months ago, congratulations to WIND and their staff. Welcome to the Canadian wireless market!

If you are like me you love black electronics. It looks like WIND is helping us out with our black addiction by adding the Nokia 5230 in black to their phone lineup.
Like the white 5230, the black phone will retail contract free for only $180. The 3.2″ touch screen device has a virtual QWERTY keyboard and free turn-by-turn navigation through Nokia Maps 3.0.
The Nokia 5230 is a stylish affordable touch screen device featuring a full-function Media Player with expandable memory of up to 16 GB, Nokia Maps, and integrated online communities like Facebook and YouTube.

New carrier, Mobilicity, is getting ready to launch service in the competitive Canadian wireless market. Mobilicity has been silent about rate plans and devices, but a possible slip in a CTV article may be the start of future leaks.
With launch of the wireless startup predicted to be early June, a source close to the company told CTV News that “a cornerstone of the company’s offensive will be an aggressively priced unlimited talk, text, long-distance and data package for $65.“ Assuming Mobilicity will use the concept of Home and Away Zones like WIND Mobile does, users will have to pay for addition usage outside of Mobilicity’s coverage area.
WIND Mobile is also offering unlimited rate plans but with a slightly higher price tag. Unlimited voice, data (soft capped at 5GB), and texting will set back $80/month but includes voicemail and caller id. Assuming Mobilicity will charge an extra $5 for voicemail, customers will be looking at a cost savings of $10/month ($120/year) when compared to WIND’s unlimited plans.
Looks like there is competition between the new entrants, now we just need the existing carriers in Canada to react. Discuss the leak in the comment section below or on HowardForums: Your Mobile Phone Community & Resource.

Just a quick reminder that today (May 4th) is the last day to get the $150 port-in credit from WIND Mobile.
To score your $150 simply bring your existing number to WIND no later than closing today. The $150 account credit will be added to your account in $30 installments over the course of 6 months. Give customer care a call at 1-877-946-3403 or stop by your WIND Mobile store to take advantage of this excellent promotion.
If you combine the $150 port-in credit with the Huawei U1250 and the $15 Chat plan you will be able to get 1 full year of WIND voice service for under $100! The port-in credit and “first month free” promotion will cover 11 months of voice service, leaving you with only one month to pay. Make it simple on yourself, head down to your nearest WIND store with $85+tax in hand and prepay for a full year of service. Of course any usage outside of your plan is extra, so an even $100 should be more than enough to cover you for a year.
