Solo Mobile will be re-launching their brand soon… actually according to this new brochure we received from a tipster it shows in the fine print to be pointing towards Friday, August 20th. We’ve got no word what will happen to current Solo subscribers but this new Unlimited offering will be available in the same core cities as Mobilicity, Wind Mobile and the recently launched Rogers discount brand Chatr: Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Ottawa. When they officially relaunch you can probably find more info at solomobile.ca/unlimited.
In the brochure they state that joining Solo that “you get a whole lot more for your money” because of “Canada-wide network without the dropped calls of less reliable network”, “Cool brand-name phones” with “No long-term contract, no deposit and no credit required”. Other good details of this new Solo Mobile is that they’ll be offering two new Unlimited plans that are priced $35 and $45.
The “Unlimited Talk 35” give you Unlimited Incoming calls (in your zone), Unlimited Outgoing province-wide calling (in your zone), Unlimited Incoming Texts, 50 Outgoing texts to Canada & U.S. (additional texts are $0.10), Call Display, Call Waiting, Call Forwarding and 3-way Calling. Voicemail is $5 more per month.
The “Unlimited Talk & Text 45” give you Unlimited Incoming calls (in your zone), Unlimited Outgoing Canada-wide calling (in your zone), Unlimited Incoming Texts, Unlimited outgoing texts to Canada & U.S., Call Display, Call Waiting, Call Forwarding and 3-way Calling. Voicemail is included.
Regarding the Voicemail. It’s “Voicemail 10” that includes a max of 10 messages on your voicemail and to retrieve your voicemail in your zone is free, when you step “out-of-zone” it’s $0.25 per minute. Canadian long distance charges are included in the $45 plan but otherwise it will cost you $0.15 per minute. U.S. long distance in-zone will cost $0.15 per minute and out-of-zone incoming and outgoing call to/from Canada or the U.S. has a price tag from 1995 at $0.25 per minute. Also, calls made outside your zone is at the $0.25 per minute rate as well.
As to the devices it looks like they will offer the same CDMA phones that they currently do, such as the Samsung Entro, Samsung M33 and the LG 230. No word yet on the rest of the lineup or the no-contract pricing.
