Bell customers with an Android device on OS 2.2 (Froyo) or higher can now purchase direct from Google Play and have the charges appear on their monthly bill.

    So bell employees get 35% discount on google play purchases…………

  • jackjiarocks

    If I were you I would stay away from this. You never know what kind of problems could occur and the hassle is simply not worth it.

  • ToniCipriani

    Because Bell’s billing is so accurate all the time?

    TELUS should have this ,I like the 25.00 limit

  • Jonathan G.

    I like the limit idea. But is this something that you would have to opt into? Or would it be done automatically?

    For some reason I imagine reading my bill and seeing a Google Play purchase combined with a Bell Google Play Service Fee…wouldn’t surprise me

  • Josh

    WTF mobile syrup whats wrong with you guys!? at least explain how to do the process…… Jeez… this post is useless without stating how to actually do it…

    • silver_arrow

      You go to pay and when you get to choose you click carrier billing I assume…

    • Josh

      tried it, doesn’t work. searched google, told me to setup wallet… Tried to setup wallet and it said “this is not available to you” …

      Bell is not on the Google Play list, just Rogers and Fido are on the Canadian Carriers list, then……..

  • Serge Cote

    If you check on the help file of Google Play for the Canadian carrier offering the “carrier billing” on Google Play you will see Rogers/Fido…..That’s it. No Bell!

  • Bell Tipster

    I can clarify why you guys can’t see the carrier billing option, and why Google don’t yet list it. It’s because the service isn’t yet “officially” live. It’s on a limited rollout for a small percentage of users – It will take a few weeks before it’s live for everyone.
