This deal has my interest peaked. However, for some reason, heard nothing but disappointing stories about coverage. People I've spoken to about this all reside in Toronto as well, coverage map on wind's site says technically we all should be covered? Currently on Rogers and paying a hefty amount each month. Wind rep mentioned this $29 deal will expire by the end of this month, and so would love to hear if people ever have issues with coverage...
I know everyone here is far beyond the 'average' user and so hearing what you think of my situation would be greatly appreciated. Itching to switch, but just dont want to sacrifice coverage over it.
If you haven't already, take a look at Coverage Mapper's Wind map. Not all of the data is up to date (especially on little inner streets), but it ought to give you a general idea of what to expect in places you go. Indoor reception is typically 2 bars lower than outdoor reception, depending on tower placement and the type of building you enter.
Question: Does this include call forwarding?
Call Control = Caller ID, Call Waiting, Call Conference, Call Forwarding, and Missed Call Alerts.
Note: Call forwarding is treated like an outgoing call. If you forward to a number that would be considered long distance to your plan, then obviously long distance charges would apply.
Though what I've heard of some people do to get by that policy is when they first sign up with WIND, they submit a porting request with incorrect porting information (i.e., phone number, account number, etc.). WIND will try to complete the porting request, but your current carrier will stop it due to the incorrect info provided by WIND. WIND will sit on the request until they get a call from you. Then when you have successfully tested the network and are ready to port your number, call back WIND and submit the correct info for them to try again.
"YMMV on the above work around"
My sister recently got this plan and I'm planning to switch over to Wind as well but I've looked over her contract and can't seem to find anything written down that says we'll get to keep the $29 rate for life. Does anyone know where I would be able to find it in writing?
