Would really love to see some more add ons available for koodo such as extra minutes i know Telus has a $10 add on for 100 mins $20 for 200 etc it would be really cool if koodo came out with such add ons or maybe something a tad different like a $10 add on that doubles the mins you have? something to consider

They used to have a 100 minute add-on. Couldn't have been very popular because it's been gone for a while. Most people just step up to the next plan with more minutes. It's the same idea.

not that easy for me lol i got the super 6GB plan that has 250 mins so i'd have to give up my 6GB of data to get more minutes, this is why for those of us with plans like this it would be nice if we were offered an add on

I'm in the same boat as you Luke. No add ons available for 6G plans.

There used to be a "100 minutes for $10" Koodo add on. I guess it didn't sell at that price point, even when Koodo substantially increased the cost of overage minutes.

i think thats a pretty great idea, id like to see 500mb add ons for 15.00 and othe increments too... i guess time will tell
they do. The data heavy-weight option is a $15 add-on that gives you 500mb's. If you go over 500gb the cap will go to 1gb for an extra $5, and so on. In levels of 500mb.

I think Helena is talking about even though you already have a plan with data included, that you should be able to add in more data.

Following what I know aout "Wireless Companies Plans" it's something that is well studied and organised by diffeent companies follwoing competition offer and demand, companies know before they market their plans that they should bring changes and watch carefully what other companies are doing, let's say that Lucke wants Koodo to add a 100 minutes or 200 minutes addons for 10/20$, knowing that if he has a 35$ plan why add 200 minutes for 20$ - if he can change his plan to the unlimited one that cost only 50$ and he will be saving 5$ - not a good idea this Addons add.

That is true, Mat. And they not only watch the competition, they also run calculations on how a new price plan (option) would change their own bottom line. If the can get away with charging a crazy 45 Cents/min for, say 25 min, or $5 for 100 min, (both on average in a given customer segment) they are not going to offer the latter add-on - until these customers start moving a) to a competitor or b) to other priceplans with an even lower margin, or c) the provider wants to grow their economies of scale through attracting new customers enough to make up for more than they lose in margin from existing customers.

This is why special offers are often not communicated to existing customers, although that would be cheap & easy to do. The provider knows that some customers will switch to the cheaper/better offer, but it wants to keep that number low. In other words: If a provider offers you a new deal proactively, you better check twice.

I was positively surprised by Eastlink (cable provider) several times though, when they offered to extend a promotion actively. This is good for customer loyalty. :-)

As for Koodo: The price for overage minutes must have increased by 50% or more since 2010. Step by step by 5 Cent increments. This seems to work well for Koodo.

thats really not true i work for koodo and we are always told to offer all our customers the best deal we can because a happy customer for a long time in a cheaper rate plan is more valuable then a short term customer on a more expensive plan.
we dont hide anything because we dont have anything to hide
you don't need to check twice if someone from koodo offers you a lower plan

it also costs more to gain a new customer then to keep an existing one happy

Canadian consumers are more savy and price and value are their main concerns-currently Canadians pay a more than other nations. Wait untill Verizon shows up at our door. Telus should know better and offer Canadians more for their hard earned dollar.

That's hilarious Ness! At South End Wally-Mart in Barrie, the manager chats with the girls, who pick fluff, off her sweater, in front of people holding $500.00 display phones in hand and NO ONE including manager, asks "can I help you?" No wonder Margins are Thin....LOL

I think you could offer better plans for the iphone, if it wasnt for the plans and the contract I would own one myself!!

You can use any plan if you put the iPhone on the tab or bring your own to Koodo.

the i phone plans for the term are not choosen by koodo they are a condition from apple for koodo to carry the i phone. which is why koodos plans are very good except for the term plans for i phone. better to use the tab and pay the difference if you can and get a much better plan

Koodo should offer additional data options.. I'm about to switch to an iphone from a blackberry and I currently have 2gb of data but I'm going to drop down to 1gb because I'm constantly being told that you don't offer more data for iphones.. It sucks because iPhones use a lot more data than blackberrys. I'm concerned that I will have to switch to another provider, which I really don't want to do, but if my bill is going to go up (it's already $94/month) I don't see how I can stay with the company.

The data saver heavyweight can work with iPhones (as long as you don't get them on a contract) and covers up to 3 gigs of data.

While it's true iPhones use more data than blackberries generally speaking 1 gb of data is enough for most people especially if you don't do any large downloads or any video streaming.

The data saver heavyweight goes above 3GB, it just costs $10/GB beyond that point.

Why not just go onto a unlimited plan. Then you will have all the minutes you need

Because if you're already on an expired pan like the super 6GB plan you'll lose the 6GB of data.

Unlimited Incoming calls or 5 Essentials are your best options at this point. Both are $10 each.

I think a lot of people got away from what i originally posted about, Yes it would be easy enough to just change my plan and get unlimited minutes but i would also lose my 6GB of data that is the whole reason it would be nice to have the option to add extra minutes on, for people without an expired 6GB plan i completely agree it would make more sense to up the plan to include unlimited minutes but for the rest of us it would be great to have the option to add more minutes/double our minutes

Ummm. Use Skype to phones or fongo (free) app to have unlimited minutes over your 6gb. Voip use is only 0.4mb/minute. You've already got unlimited incoming with super 6gb plan so now you have fully unlimited all the time using fongofor outgoing weekdays

Even if you just use Fongo when you have Wi-fi, you'll probably save enough plan minutes to be ok, unless you're calling on the road all the time. But ya, with that much data, you should have room for VoIP calls.

This is a really good idea!! I think there should also be an easier way to add minutes to your plan to call overseas, rather than just having to purchase an add-on to decrease the cost-per-minute.

Great idea for the minutes add-ons , what would be a hit is that the add-on has a variant that you can either have it permanent on your plan for a set amount and if you only need it for a month you can have it for another price like:

100 minutes add-ons for 10$ for 30 days

or

100 minutes add-ons for 15$

I have had a lot of people ask for extra minutes add on instead of having to change their plan completly.
but really, if you have a $30 plan and want an extra 100 minutes, that would generally cost about $10.. you might as well just go for the $40 plan which has the extra minutes plus unlimited incoming calls.
it could be handy for people with an older plan though.

Yeah, an extra minutes add-on should mean that you need to upgrade your plan to a higher one because that current plan isn't suiting all of your needs.

If you're on a older plan though, it's hard to let go because you can't get that plan back but it's your decision and trade.

Yeah I would agree with this personally. I'm on last year's Super 6GB plan and while 250 mins (and unlimited incoming with 5PM nights/weekends) is plenty for me if the time came where I needed to pay for extra mins or change my plan I'd hope (if the minutes needed were reasonable) I could have the option to add more to my plan.

would be nice if they offered unlimited everything plans for $35 like wind mobile. That includes data.
