    Default My Wind Experience

    I decided to give Wind a try because I love supporting the underdog and read all about Wind's trials getting to market. Their prices were unbeatable, $35.00 all inclusive, unlimited talk time AND long distance in Canada and USA, I could hardly believe it, but they assured me it was true, and it is.

    I was told that Wind had limited range to its signal, being the strongest in the city and getting weaker further away into the burbs. What I found was this was mostly true, but their coverage right downtown was terrible, almost non-existent in fact. If it wasn't for that, I'd still be with them, but having no coverage downtown is a dealkiller.

    My dad switched to Wind a while ago, and had a shaky start with their coverage. But over time, their coverage got even better. Look on their website, it has a map of where they plan to expand their coverage. They're new so it'll take time, but with those plans, I wouldn't go to any other carrier. The other problem with Wind is their poor selection of phones, but it isn't hard to find a good price on unlocked ones anyway...

    I love WIND and I totally smoked some guy at Best Buy today who tried talking me out of WIND Mobile. It went something like this:
    1. Your signal sucks right? "Actually, It's really good, I get the best signal at my school!"
    2. You only get 4GB of data. "Actually, it's 5GB"
    3. You get throttled to 0.001mbps. "Actually, it's 0.25mbps and it's very useable"
    4. "Until Robellus has better data plans I won't consider them." Well they have plans where you can pay $90 a month for 2-4GB/mo. "Well I pay $40 for unlimited everything."

    In this day and age, if you pay $90 per month to Robellus, you're a fool who is just being easily separated from his money.

    Anyone on this $29 unlimited deal they got going? My wife needs a new phone and I'm looking at this for her. (mostly cause I want to play with the Galaxy s3 lol). I assume coverage would be decent as long as we're in the GTA? Data isn't a huge thing for her, but how are the upload/download speeds?

    So far i love wind. other than the upgrades taking forever that is...lol the 40 plan where i get unlimited everything including international is awesome and the intenet speeds are perfect . i live in st.catharines ontairo and the only issue i have had is on the higway on the way to welland and in niagra falls where even with rogers or other carriers the phones pick up the us towers instead. same thing with wind.
