if thats the case im sold!
I didn't think you could do it but I was in a Bell Corporate Store and transferred my plan. I'm enjoying unlimited data on HSPA and it works like a charm on my new Blackberry Bold 9700!
if thats the case im sold!
I wish i got the Unlimited plan now :P
If a second person can confirm this and after the first bill on HSDPA shows no changes or irregularities, I will be one happy camper. From the other thread, there was an impression that it would not be possible and I accepted it and was looking for the Tour2 but if what OP says is true, 9700 here I come!
my bell rep just confirmed it with the bell helpdesk
Trust me I wouldn't lie! I don't want people to hate me lol
Unlimited on a blackberry isn't that big of a deal. Bell wouldn't have a problem with allowing that on the new network.
It's the other smartphones you need to be concerned about. According to bell.ca, you can order an Omnia II with the student plan 50 that has unlimited. So either it's all the non-iPhone devices that can use the grandfathered unlimited, or it's a mistake on the website.
Blackberry or smartphone though, what you need to be concerned with is your first bill after the change. Make sure you don't get charged data at the pay per use rate.
Just because the service books in your grandfathered package is allowing you to use data, doesn't mean the other part of the package is actually covering your usage.

Are you on the $30 Unlimited Blackberry Data plan?Originally Posted by doan_1
hmmm true ill just shh
shhh eric2k.. shhhhh
loose lips sink.. uh... nice things!.
On contract terms and responsibilities and getting the right information:
When youre talking about signing a contract for 3 years that will in the end may potentially cost you 20x X number of months you really should do everything to protect yourself.
Ok guys now I'm scared. I'm a new Bell customer, Started on October 30th. I got the 60 dollar combo plan AT THE TIME, which SHOULD have been UNLIMITED data. Now I check on their site, 60 bucks for 2GB!!!!!
My question is, does the unlim data from when I subscribed pass on? (This is the meaning of 'grandfathered' right?) or am I subject to changes? I took out the contract just to double check and see if maybe I had subscribed to 2gb, but its showing Unlim Email and Internet!
Also, I got this through a Future Shop. People seeing my other thread knows I'm trying to exchange my Tour for the new Bold. Will the new Bold work on the HSPA network? or will I be stuck on the 1XEV network that I'm constantly picking up reception on?

@ Sammy, is there a rep button on this forum? You seriously deserve mine.
So, I can expect the new Bold to work on the HSPA network? (Like you know from my thread, assuming FS exchanges my phone?) And the data I use will be billed as unlimited?
Unfortunately not.Originally Posted by BreakIn
If what rumored in this thread holds true, then yes.
