I originally had a Koodo prepaid plan that cost me $15/month and allowed me unlimited texting but required me to buy any phone minutes via boosters. I was very happy with that plan since I don’t make a lot of voice calls and the booster minutes roll over indefinitely. I encouraged my brother to get the same plan for his phone; he likes this plan too. During COVID, my phone died and I couldn’t afford the $15/month for a dead phone so I let my account lapse and disappear. Now that I’m working again, I replaced my phone and asked for the same plan again. There is one big difference between the new plan and the old one: the new plan gives me unlimited texting in Canada for $15/month PLUS 100 free phone minutes. I don’t expect I’ll need those minutes very often but it’s nice that they are included for free.
Now, my question: since this plan seems to have an important new feature at no extra cost, does my brother now have the 100 free minutes in his account automatically or does he have to do something in order to get the 100 free minutes?
