    This is great news. I hope Wind also offers something similar!!!

  • Bong Sniffer

    This is so Racist…..lol…just kidding…its just stupid

  • Max

    Wind is going to offer the same promo sooooooooon!!!!!!

  • JAWG

    Even though I’m on Mobi and love their service/network I think they have more important things to do than offer free long distance on different Holidays,like for example get internet hook-ups or direct telephone access to Mobi to activate phones if they are going to try and sell phones in Convenience Stores…the one I go to the owner complains each time I’m there that he only has a display with 3 phones and hasn’t sold one since he doesn’t want to waste his time away from his own business if the company offers no back-up.I mean this is just poor advertising and marketing and what will lose them business although they are probably gaining speed in other departments compared to the other Newbies.

      I’m not exactly a JAWG fan but why on earth are you guys voting this post down?

      Seriously, the trolling on this board is out of hand.

  • kiasu

    Why not include Malaysia? Singapore is just beside Malaysia and there are a lot of Malaysian here as well…

  • JAWG

    Although I’m with Mobi now, my heart will always be with Wind. I think I’m going to setup another line with Wind. Go Wind Go!!!

  • JAWG

    Jonesy…thanks for being fair.It’s always 23-25 thumbs down…now that is interesting as I said before.

    • Jonesy1966

      I don’t get it. So we disagree on Wind, big deal! That doesn’t excuse anyone for flagging comments just because of the poster.

  • JAWG

    Same here…nothing against you personally either and I even got 28 thumbs down for stating Mibi had a good Facebook app…amazing yet hilarious.

  • Dan

    This is great, Im not chinese but I will have a blast with the prank phone calls!!

    But still, good for them to do this.

  • MXM4K

    A generous promo, certainly helps the company image.

    And yea, I noticed a 20-24 thumbs up or down with anything JAWG (or fake JAWG) posts of late. Thankfully Mobilsyrup has stated that they’re aware of the issue in these comment sections, and are going to create a new system that will hopefully eliminate the problem.

    • Jonesy1966

      Really the thumbs are meaningless but they’re getting even more so now with people voting according to whether they like the OP or not.

  • abc123

    The more I read about Mobilicity, the more I get the feeling that this is a company that cares about it’s customers…

    that’s a refreshing change.

  • nuclearbroccoli

    meh..
    This is one of those incredibly rare times I actually agree with JAWG on this. Not really a priority, nor is it all that exciting. Good for some of their customers I suppose…

  • nuclearbroccoli

    On a side note: Could everyone PLEASE stop giving people thumbs down just because you don’t like the poster?
    By all means, give the post a thumbs down if it’s just plain stupid, or just argumentative.
    Hell, I’ve flagged JAWG more than once, and God knows I do not share the same views, but I don’t flag EVERYTHING he posts just because I disagree.
    Can we all at least try to act like adults in this respect?

    Has Rogers ever giving any free minutes out ?
    f**k you rogers, f**k you big 3!
