It would be nice, as someone else mentioned, if we got official word from Mobi that the incoming text roaming charges are dropped for customers with older plans.
Thanks in advance Mobi.
I am near the US Border and I frequently travel to the US, even before the official announcement I was NOT getting charged for incoming text. I did get charged before but with in the last ten or so days I didn't not get charged. I was actually surprised that I didn't get charged.
Mobilicity Press Release:
Doesn't get much more official than that. Or clear.Free incoming text messages are now also included on all its plans while roaming.
I don't understand why so much doubt has been expressed on this.
In the AWS/cellular context, TAFL is Industry Canada's list of all base stations in operation, as submitted by the spectrum licensee the month prior.
The underlying database is Industry Canada's Assignment and Licensing System (ALS)
A subset of the ALS is published monthly as the Technical and Administrative Frequency Lists (TAFL)
Real-time access to the AWS/cellular data of ALS is provided by Spectrum Direct's (SD) Geographical Area Search
very good move with the free incoming texts mobi..now just add roll over roaming mins...
I wonder if it's possible that Mobilicity (and WIND) can lower data roaming rates any further. WIND recently slashed theirs down to $1/MB (from $4/MB. lol). Mobilicity slashed theirs down to $1.50/MB from $5/MB last summer.
I would be interested in knowing just how much Rogers is charging these guys for data. For WIND to drop the rate by 75% and Mobilicity 70% suggests that they had a high mark-up on data at one point. Or Rogers all of a sudden decided to be more generous to them? lol.
I guess we've confirmed the incoming text questions, but as for voice roaming:
@mobilicity do the new roaming voice plans apply to existing customers as well or only for people that sign up to new plans?
REPLY: They only apply for the new plans. Thank you for your question!
It's the Least I Could Do
