is the awesome Koodo DATA SAVER add on, no longer available? i currently have one of the original talk and text plans, and have refused to change because the new plans they come out with are not as good, no more unlimited weekend calls! for one example, but i need voicemail/call disply now, and the new low end talk and text is 29$ and includes these, but the datasection of the plan looks crap, am i still able to add the data saver instead? or has it been removed completely as an option!? the advantage to this newer plan is that i get voicemail and caller id for 4 dollars more, the down side, is no more unlimited weekend calling its all just 5pm-8am all week long, and the data is "Additional data $5/50 MB." meanign there is no base starting data like the next package up "UP TO 150 MB Additional data $5/100 MB." so can i add the data saver instead or whats the deal...

Actually it does include unlimited weekend calling. Howver over the 2 on the left hand side andthe details pop up.

However with the new plans, the Data Save option is now gone :(

oh ok i miss understood the first time i read that, i read 5pm-8am monday through friday, 5pm friday to 8am monday, as 5pm-8am monday through friday,5-8 friday through monday.

ooook, so if i change my plan to the new one, but do not remove my datasaver add on will i still maintain it?

if not, im paying 5$/50mb what if i only use 25mb, does it charge me 2.5$?

I'm afraid not :( Once you chance your plan to the new one, you will also "benefit" (or suffer, depending on your viewpoint) from the new data prices. If you know how much data you are going to need, you might actually be better off to select one of the data plans.

No it will not maintain as the main plan will supercede the old add-on.

But note that if you change your plan & add-ons to the new plans you will not be able to get the old ones back as they are no longer offered.

Under the data saver plan you would have paid $5 for 25 MB. How would that be a better deal?

From my understanding this is a business approach. Anyone with a talk/text plan who uses data depending how much they use would benefit from a data plan. Makes sense in the long run because this pushes consumers to get data plans instead of use the data pay per use rates.

sooo the datasaver option is still available in my addons when i go to change my plan, i assume ill be able to retain it even if i change my main plan, but if i get rid of it will it be gone for ever?

It would not recommend leaving it on. You will most likely run into billing issues because of the Data Saver + the pay per use data rate of the new talk & text plans.

Be very cautious about trying to stack a flex rate plan with a plan that has a flex rate plan included. Best case scenario it'll ignore one or the other. Worst case scenario you'll get double billed for any data used.
