how about cheaper prices in canada now theres an Idea.  we need reasonable data say 3 - 6GB and unlimited nation wide calling, canada/US texting. we used to get this for about 60 dollars on other providers now everything is over 120 dollars for this kind of plan. enough is enough. lets get on the WIND mobile wagon and bring reasonable prices. they charge $40 dollars for all this, even unlimited data I believe, its crazy. common, stop with the greed.

thank you.

Wishful thinking still... The carriers want to make back the money they spent on the 700mhz auction that nobody really needed or asked for unfortunately. Plus they're using the 2 year contract rules as a scapegoat for increasing the prices. The networks are more reliable and faster than Wind but I don't know *how* much more considering the price gap. I pay $85 with Telus for Unlimited Canada-wide calls and 6GB data so I'm happy because I get premium subsidy and very good service that I know won't be as solid as Wind but everyone's different.

Crazy! If people can still have these plans then they should still be offered every once in awhile. I never seen anything from koodo for customer loyalty.

But Joseph, that is EXACTLY Koodo's customer loyalty: the longer you stay, the better your (grandfathered) plan :) Like Daniel below is on a plan no longer offered, as are several other customers. One of the regular forum participants is still on the $10 plan with one account!

If they can afford to let one guy pay $10-$60 to have the same plan as I'm paying $95 for there is too much greed there. If I was paying what Daniel is paying $60 and gain 3GB of data I wouldn't complain at all. I just want reasonable prices. I will just drop my plan soon and keep my phones for wifi or get them unlocked and go somewhere else.

Wise decision to vote with your wallet and your feet. That is why I chose prepaid and pay less than $20 per month :D
