Re: WARNING: WIND Mobile

Ummm.. You acknowledged in a previous post you have to "pay off your smartphone" if you cancel. You really think the Galaxy Nexus retails for $149? If you cancel your Wind service before 3 years you have to pay back the remaining subsidy balance on your device which is NOT zero dollars. You may feel like you're not on a contract based on the way Wind markets their tab system, but it really isn't that much different from a 3 year Rogers contract.

A 3 year Rogers contract before or after FlexTab was brought in (not that long ago)? If you have one of the older plans the $500 ECF or whatever crazy amount it was still applies. We have the new entrants to thank for the big 3 changing their character.

That is correct according to the WINDTab terms and conditions (page 2):

"You Leaving Us

As a WIND customer, you always have the right to terminate the provision of Services at any time and you can repay your WINDtab at any time. When we hear from you (or your new wireless service provider) that you want to leave us, you are obligated to pay us for the outstanding portion of your WINDtab. You can keep the phone or
data stick. If you want to terminate the provision of Services for some but not all lines on your account, you may do so, but will be required to repay the WINDtab for the terminated lines."

Actually we have consumer protection laws that are in place in Quebec, Manitoba and soon Ontario to thank for this.

It was a response to competition. How else can you explain Bell still charging the old way? They don't feel threatened by new entrants as much as Rogers. Rogers has the most subscribers of the big 3 and the most customers to lose.
