Starting February 2nd WIND will be coming out with another promo – this time it’s called the “Leap” plan and here are all the details:

– $40/month
– Unlimited Canada wide calling (including Wind-to-Wind)
– Unlimited text
– Unlimited Data (Including BIS for BlackBerry devices)
– Call Control Features (Caller ID, Call Forwarding, Missed Call Alerts, and Conference Calling)

Reading over the internal doc it seems that voicemail and Canada-wide picture messaging isn;t included. In addition, the plans will expire February 29th, 2012 and is open to current WIND customers, eligible with WINDtab+ and the those who sign up for the Better Together Savings discount.

(Thanks tipster!)

    Just in time for a February 3rd launch of the Galaxy Nexus. Where do I sign?

  • J.R.

    I suspect that this must be what the WIND Twitter account hinted was “juuust around the corner”. I’m not expecting to see the Galaxy Nexus available until the 13th or so, if that “in time for Valentine’s Day” bit is as foretelling as it seems.

  • Blair Davis

    I heard a rumor that it will be available this Friday, apparently a Wind rep had mentioned this date to someone that went to the store to check. So I hope that holds true. And the galaxy nexus will be on the WINDtab+.

  • J.R.

    One hopes! It’d be nice to finally have a decent cell phone when I’m in Canada. I pre-emptively hopped on the HMP with an old candy bar phone just to have the plan.

  • Bro

    Any chance of wind getting galaxy note??

    • B.W.

      No, the Galaxy Note doesn’t support the AWS frequencies used by Wind.

  • B.W.

    Isn’t this basically the current Oh Canada plan but for $11/month more the first year, and $5/month less after that?

  • nw222

    yes b.w and u would save more money over time in that case…unless theres a one-year on this also

    • B.W.

      Too bad there’s no voice mail like some of the previous $40 promos. Also, it’s going to expire a few days before my contract is up so I guess I’ll be hoping it gets held over or replaced with something as good or better.

  • Alex Perrier

    Probably the best plan for those who want a subsidy with Internet access. It is pricey, but way better deal than Big 3. Even better if this plan is for life!

    Now a basic $40/ month plan for TWO lines would be sweet stuff! :)

  • J.R.

    Ahahaha, well, I guess you guys were right. I just got the Feb 3rd email in my inbox from WIND.

  • Baconeater

    Wind is launching the GN Feb 3 (ahead of Mobilicity for once!)

  • Radar

    Galaxy Nexus with a new plan – sweet!!!

  • Generation Nothing

    Anyone can confirm yet about the Valentines Plan of $69 for two similar to hmp? Still waiting for confirmation should that come true. Buh bye Mobilicity if that goes.

    • chall2k5

      Wind probably won’t they don’t need to like Mobi does

  • Rocco StiffReddi

    If I wasn’t so busy being a troll on winds site I could have been first on here telling lies. So blah blah blah warranty blah blah jabroni blah blah. I get much more attention on winds site, and thats all my handlers want, meaningless, unsubstantiated lies, untruths, and meaningless bogeyman scare tactics. None of it has to be true, I get paid by the post.

  • GoProSkier

    anyone on the Leap PLan?

    the Facebook APP, and BBM Messenger doesnt work lol
