Virgin Mobile Canada releases Unlimited Data Plan for only $10 but…

virgin

You can only get the unlimited Data on the Samsung M510 and no other Vigin phone. Why does there always have to be a catch? I thought Virgin’s whole marketing scheme is “NO CATCH”??

Even though your forced to buy a new phone is’nt half as bad compared to other “Unlimited Data” plans in Canada. Maybe…I mean HOPEFULLY this will cause a pricing war with other service providers and everyone is forced to lower data costs.

The new data plan is called Tidal Wave Data Pak and is available now.

Rogers Wireless Finally gets reasonable Data Plans!!

rogers

If you haven’t heard already, Rogers just released a new 1GB data plan to contend with Bell. Bell has just announced that they will be offering a 1GB data plan for your laptop by using a wireless card for $75. Rogers has done the same but the only difference is that since Rogers is GSM and uses a SIM card the data plan can also be used in Windows Mobile devices. The 1GB data plan will cost you only $65 CAD a month. Call *611 right now and add it to your service plan. You have the option to add it to your existing SIM or on another SIM!!
