I am leaving for Toronto in this week from India and would like to know something about Mobile Phones. I read your post about WIND mobile. Can you please clerify me that they charge $25 for unlimited voice incoming and outgoing calls in ontario province but is this plan valid for WIND mobile to WIND mobile or WIND mobile to any mobile. Please clerify me this as I could not get the same even from the WIND mobile website. I will use mobile more for the incoming purpose if you have any other good plan. Please guide and help
Thanks a lot in advance
Windmobile is good... @ least in the GTA belt. I've no issues till date - even while moving around in Montreal, Calgary, PEI, Kingston, Detroit, Niagara, Gatineau etc.
Yes, that $25 plan is for 'unlimited' i/c & o/g, from anywhere, even international i/c. For calling international u'd require to purchase the $2.5 cards, or be with some of the many sites like Vonnage.
They have something called Wind Zones... basically it's places where they r active... beyond the wind zone/s u'd be calling internationally. Yes, here in Canada, if u have a 'local' plan - all out stn calls r referred as 'international', which is a rip-off. Nonetheless with Wind, i/comings would yet remain free, from anywhere... but not the o/going part. Within Wind zones - everything is free.
And the Wind Zone is pretty big. Unless, u r a frequent flyer [a businessman travelling o/side the zones regularly] u'd have hardly anything to complain. I haven't paid a single penny over & above the $25/month as yet.
Hope that helped.Qorax
