What price are they giving you at Virgin?

I don’t know what you mean by “ more flexible”  (on what).    But, if you see plan or phone is cheaper, and if you are not happy with call back to talk to CS.   Then why not?

 

I just transferred over 4 phones.  All have unlimited calling and texting in canada

1 got 4g for $45

1 got 10gb with adder for unlimited US calling for $65 total

2 got 10gb for $50

No charges to sign up or for the new sims

 

If anyone does this - make sure you pressure them into turning on data blocking  when you hit your data limit - otherwise they are the usual super slimy provider and charge $100 per gb.  - But it does seem that  you can demand a $50 dollar max according to the law.

Did the Virgin Mobile rep mention Koodo had free block when you reach data limit?. You wouldn’t have to pay “$50 dollar max according to the law” with Koodo. It should be $0 data overage if you enable it. https://www.koodomobile.com/datacalculator

The plans look the same online

Also watch out with Virgin.  They are more likely to raise the price of plans then compared to Koodo.  It is common practice with Virigin for many year.  Koodo only started doing this a couple years ago and they have only done it a handful of times.

For example, the $60/10GB promo plan from december 2017,  only Koodo didn't increase the price later on.
