So Wind finally implemented carrier billing for application purchases in App World. Similarly, Bell, Rogers, Telus, Fido and Virgin also offer this, and have for years. Is Koodo ever planning on providing this option? Perhaps I'm beating a dead horse here.... Note: When I first switched to Koodo several years ago, I had no problem using carrier billing for app purchases. This lasted for about 8 months, until one day the option was no longer available.

I'm more interested in some sort of NFC billing setup for "real-world" purchases. But that being said, if the competition provides carrier billing, so should Koodo.

Carrier billing depends on the service you are using. For example, you can charge facebook credits to your mobile bill.

I'm not really too bothered about facebook carrier billing, or social media type billing in general, but I guess it would be good. Can't hurt at least. I'm really just looking for carrier billing for application purchases from the manufacturers' respective app stores. Not specifically Blackberry either, I think Koodo should offer this for Android Play Store and Apple App Store as well.
