    Thanks for info........any discussion on Rogers honouring plans rather then grandfathering them ?

    Didn't speak to them about any specifics, but he said it's a good deal as you get to keep the plan but get switched over to rogers.

    You have to understand Roger's need to dumb down their statements for the lowest common denominator. Some people might go 'huh what's grandfathering?' but most people should understand the term honouring ie honour their word etc.

    From what I see now the balance of probabilities are leaning more towards grandfathering then before.

    1. A new BTS promotion was done after the takeover, so this would imply Rogers is looking for additional subs and in it for the long term.

    Mobi's BTS promotion @ $40 is actually more $$$ than Wind's promotion this time around. Usually they are at a discount to Wind so it appears the company is on stronger footing. I think they will further increase the price once the network is transitioned into Rogers.

    2. Repeated statements that they were honouring all Mobilicities plans going forward. If they were looking to close up shop asap their best course of action would be to keep silent on the matter.

    *Also this should be obvious, but don't expect LTE or nation wide roam free coverage. Expect good Rogers 3G and unlimited zones in major cities based on the the existing Mobilicity / Chatr footprint. For the $29 a month this is more than fair and better than anything out there.

    The Mobilicity and Chatr maps are a little different. It would be amazing to have Rogers Use Chatr maps for Mobilicity, because then I will have coverage in Milton,Oakville etc.

    Interesting thing, it would take more effort in configuration to recreate the roaming boundaries of the defunct Mobilicity network on the existing Rogers network.

    From a marketing aspect those old boundaries would leave Mobilicity hobbled in comparisons to WIND coverage.
    There is 6 sub brands and MVNO that operate on Rogers network. I don't think it will be complicated for Rogers to recreate any boundaries.

    Not "complicated" or difficult for Rogers, just artificial. People tend to assume the roaming boundaries they see on a coverage map are fixed due to the physical network.

    Contrary to the online maps, Mobilicity ALREADY works in eastern parts of Milton/Oakville

    Not much though... I tested with a Mobilicity sim card in January and despite the fact where I can see their network at home (near Derry and Millerway/Armstrong) The signal was a bar or maybe less. Whereas Chatr works really well. So hopefully they use Chatr maps for Mobilicity!

    Chatr uses Rogers. What does a map have to do with anything?

    It just clicked for me. Unlimited zones, not "local" zones. 1GB anywhere else on the native network (or some other not-discriminatory amount). Need more than the included out-of-zone quota? that's where a "more on Rogers network" add-on could come in.

    That would dispel the perception that artificial roaming will penalize those on the original Mobilicity plans, if in fact the old boundaries are used on the Rogers network.

    The Chatr option would as well, and stand comparison with WIND's coverage.

    I have heard different information about the $40 promo being active till tomorrow (Aug 30) or till the end of September. I wish Rogers chooses to go with Chatr Maps for homezones, and make it official before the promo is over. I am sure I am not the only just outside of the Mobilicity current coverage, who is interested in signing up.

    I see Cityfone has native access to the entire Rogers network. Extended coverage too. And LTE.

    If you didn't know Cityfone is a sub-brand of Rogers.

    Careful there
    Cityfone has some weird billing though

    http://www.cityfone.net/rate-plans/t...paign=newlegal

    Among the other oddities is the fact incoming calls are not free unless in your zone
    So even if you had cross Canada minutes + nights, if you receive a call it would be deducted from your airtime or even appear as an extra charge depending on plan
    It is sad I need to state the obvious but some people just don't get it. Any posts I make are my own OPINIONS and in no way represent the views of my employer

    FYI - Just switched from Wind to Mobilicity to take advantage of this deal before it possibly goes away (again as noted before: no concrete answers as to when this $40 deal will go away...).

    I learned some new bits of info today: the coverage area is going to expand. The store person said it's already being turned on in a few areas they didn't cover before. She seemed to suggest the yellow areas on the map will be part of it now too.

    Other thing: a different expectation for when the network transfer will take place...these opinions differed even among the staff...one saying it will happen in September, another saying it could be any time between now and December.

    Last thing: wow, moblicity's data speed and signal strength is weak compared to wind! It's going to be a rough time for me until Mobilicity finally switches onto the Rogers network...

    Weak doesn't really mean anything. You can either have a weaker signal with lower latency (mobi) or stronger signal with high latency (wind)
