  • Not Planned
Not sure if this idea has been presented..but myself and my husband both have IPhones through Koodo..for a grand total of $160 per month. We both wanted the Unlimited plan so that we didn't have to worry about going over on minutes. Most of the time we are hooked up to our home based internet and barely use the 1GB per month. A> It would be great if they credited you back a certain $$ amount if you only used a fraction of what the plan was? OR..better yet...give you a family plan that you can share for a cheaper price per month?? It's a pain to have to pay seperate bills per month (for me anyway)

US carriers are big on this... but they're no bargain either. Count on $120 a month for a shared voice/data plan from the majors, much less from some resellers like Consumer Cellular.

If you want to sharpen your pencil, look into the 5 essentials or unlimited calling add-ons for the real chatty phones. Inter-plan calls on the same account are free.
Data doesn't have to be a big drag either.

Data and how to make the most of it.

I agree, but although many people suggested this idea at Koodo brainstorms for the past couple of years, Koodo hasn't done much really about this. Or maybe are they considering...

Canadian carriers have been reluctant to offer shared data plans except to corporate customers - they give up too much in profits by offering shared data plans.

None of the flanker brands offer it. It seems that Rogers, Bell, and Telus are reserving share plans for their primary brand. I don't expect them to add it to their flanker (Koodo, Fido, Virgin).

I support this, but doubt that we'll see this anytime soon.
