    They changed my wording quite a bit though...

    The side effect is that "TELUS-as-scammers" is going viral. And that never makes sense from a business perspective.

    A thread that had ~2k views yesterday has 9200 today. And how many people read Slashdot and BGR? Chances are decent that it will hit Gizmodo/Engadget/Consumerist, too. People are going to keep tuning in to follow this story, and as the victims post further updates of TELUS' douchiness it's going to just get seared deeper into everyone's brains. And no quantity of goldfish/monkey/penguin/iguana photos can counter the impression that this story will make in Canadians' minds.

    For anyone that receives a call - RECORD IT
    You are within your rights to record these calls

    It would be fun to post here so all of us can hear what is said

    Note - what is the real cost of mobile data if Rogers can sell 6 gig for $30 for the iphone. If Robbers can do this then 12 gig for $60 or 15 gig for $15 should not be unreasonable

    My Fido $50 Unlimited data plan was for North America use until Fido removed the unlimited in the US part and started charging 6 cents/Kb. The TOS stated the package service charge would be protected while under agreement. The $50 Unlimited was advertised as a unlimited north american data package. Some had been compensated but to this day Fido has got away with it because of a lack of complaints.

    The $50 plan was the first unlimited data plan in Canada back in 2002 when the Tech was just starting up. So if the Telco's could charge $50 unlimited North American data in 2002, they should be able to charge the same today. It points to the lack of compedition here in Canada to bring cost down.

    I'm on board with all you Telus customers and filed a complaint with the Compedition Bureau.

    boy you're helpful eh... and haha?.. really?

    i think most of us know the L&R numbers already, thanks.

    rather than bug retentions, i thought i'd ask the more knowledgable members at hofo first if they know of a corp connect unlimited plan, and if it were excempt

    I blogged about this today.

    This is just another example of a much bigger problem, which is the providers not investing in their networks, and instead trying to cut down on bandwidth usage as much as possible.

    Comcast throttling P2P, Unlimited connections that are actually limited, no VoIP or streaming, etc is all about allowing them to not upgrade their pipes, not spend money, and still charge as much as they can.

    Sorry if this sounds stupid, but does this effect my unlimited data/e-mail/im 15 on my HTC Touch? Thanks.

    That's exactly what I was pointing out. Sorry if it wasn't clear.
    Clearnet Digital PCS

    We think everyone should be able to afford a wireless phone. That's why we were the first wireless company in North America to offer pay-by-the-second airtime, and why we don't charge an activation fee. NO scary contract to sign. Immediate national coverage. And a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. Yes, it's finally time to get a wireless phone.
