As long as they're in business.
I'm just curious, what exactly does the "Guaranteed Rate" mean on MOBI ?
If I bought a $25 plan, is it guaranteed never to go up ?
As long as they're in business.
FIDO $56 Smart Plan: Unlimited nationwide talk, global messaging, 2GB data w/ BIS and LTE, value pack
WIND $40 Wish Plan: Unlimited nationwide talk, global messaging, unlimited data w/ BIS, call control

Rate plans are only guaranteed for the duration of your contract. Technically, every cell phone plan and every purchase we ever make is a contract. It just happens to be that Mobilcity's contracts are for one month of service at a time. This means that your price is guaranteed for only that month. At any time, Mobilicity could raise the price and there's not a thing you can do. Mobilcity could even decide to change pricing in the middle of one your subscribed to months of service and simply give you a refund and say that they don't want your business. I highly doubt they would do that but note that your plan is definitely not "guaranteed" for life. If you're looking for some type of lifetime guarantee, it doesn't exist with any cell phone company.
Mobilicity service terms section 3.
Section 3. CHANGING THIS AGREEMENT
(1) We reserve the right to change the agreement, fees, rates or plans from time to time by
posting it on our website at http://www.mobilicity.ca/. Although this does not create an

It's the same as any product or service that you buy. Price are never guranteed to stay the same forever. The above terms of service really spell out the reality. We're dealing with a month of cell phone service being sold by Mobilciity to a customer. Mobilciity could change the pricing at any time - even for existing customers - but the customer is also free to continue with the purchase of another month of service or to cancel the service at any time.
I'd believe our rates are guaranteed as long as Dave is Mobi's CEO.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but dave has promised all plans are grandfathered I believe.

The ONLY thing a contract promises is a one-time hardware discount on your phone. That's it.
Mobilicity and WIND, on the other hand, are far less likely to mess with peoples pricing precisely BECAUSE they have no contracts! Everyone could simply leave.

The word 'Pentaband' means '5 Bands', from the Greek word 'pente' meaning '5'. For a phone to be pentaband it has to support 5 bands. If the phone has AWS support, it doesn't automatically mean that it is pentaband. The reason Wind and Mobilicity users like pentaband phones is because the reverse is true. We're not the only ones who like pentaband phones though, so please stop referring to phones that work on Wind and Mobilicity as pentaband. It causes unnecessary cofusion.
Dave will not break his promise. $25 a month to Dave is better than nothing. I don't think it cost $25 for Dave to maintain an extra account. Dave is still making operating profit out of it but not much in comparison with Robellus.
Also, technology might have advanced so much in 10 - 15 years that the customers might not want to keep the cell phones at any price.
Yeah, Dave seems like a really straight guy. I couldn't belive it when I sent him a twitter message telling him that there is nowhere to put an apartment number in for a customers account, and he replied and thanked me for pointing it out! I'd never get anything from the big 3 like that.
I'd imagine that like rent, gas, food, and everything else, the service will go up in price, over time. Ah well, such is life.
