The closest you can get to it is the $30 plan with no Tab to get 10% off your bill, which would be $27. Lower than that and you need to look at prepaid.

Because of the new 24 month Tab clearance policy in place, you can pretty much bet your hard earned money that you won't be seeing $20 or $25 monthly plans again.

I actually heard about this, even if I wasn't already vegetarian the idea of this burger would've pushed me over the edge.

I can't believe people actually ordered that abomination.

If everyone collectively stopped subsidizing their phones I'm sure the plan price will go back down. Until then, however, we're all paying for those subsidies together.

yay

Price of the plans will NOT go down. The way that the tab works, your tab will reach a balance of $0 in 24 months or less. If there are lower plans, it would take more than 24 months to pay off therefore there CAN'T be lower plans. Sorry to break the bad news but if you want your plans to be lower than $30, then prepay is your option

We can't really say with certainty that these prices won't go down. If Koodo feels enough pressure (i.e. people vote with their wallets), then the prices will go down.

If people are only complaining, but continuing to subscribe then Koodo (or anyone else) doesn't really have any incentive to lower prices.

You can thank the governement for the drastic increases in cell phone companies which means MORE TAX! Yay!

I think that you're jumping to conclusions here, Rocky.

This is more along the lines of corporate greed responding to consumer greed.

Wanting reasonable prices is hardly consumer greed.

The consumer greed I was mentioning was related to wanting $500 phones for free.

The Tab Large has a Tab large specific plan to subsidise a phone price($65 and up).

Is it possible to add cheaper plans($20,$25) for only on the No tab plan?
You will buy a phone outright with the prepaid phone price and activate monthly "No tab specific plan".

You might say "just open a prepaid account is easy". But if you have a large family, the family calling feature on monthly plan makes a lot of different.
Just my thought :)

With Koodo, you can only have 4 lines on one account, so it wouldn't really be suitable for a large family.

Congratulations to you too, Mayumi.

@Ivan, you can have five lines on one account, still not suited for a big family though.

Definitely need a $25 plan. Make it 50 minutes with no call display/voicemail and unlimited texting. Perfect for teens who don't care about calls. I keep losing customers to prepaid....

Why not try out Prepaid? It's great for users who don't use their phone up to a great amount. I think it may be cheaper overall but I do agree that the plans now are expensive due to the new 2 year wipe out tab thing. :(
