I like your post and the points you brought out. I started out with Defy unlimited plan for $19.00 Hardly ever used data as it wasn’t easily accessible in my area. Next I moved to a newer phone Moto G1 and staying on the $10 plan. Then I tried the 2.0 data refund plan, which I liked a lot. Now I’m with My Choice and a newer, bigger more powerful phone.
As much as I liked the refund plan, I’m glad to have My Choice with the new reduced rates for data. We don’t know what RW will come up with in the future. You may get your wish for some sort of data refund plan, since it was so popular, then again you may not. Stay tuned on that one.
In the meantime, the phone choices have improved greatly and now that RW is out of the ROM business, updates to OS come out on a regular basis from the manufacturer. This means phones are more secure and security patches can be released quicker. This point is important as more and more people use their phones for all sorts of security vulnerable things, such as banking, etc.
In the mean time RW has done a lot to keep costs down for itself and in turn passed on this savings to it’s customers. This I appreciate a lot. Would like to see other companies have half as much concern for it’s customers as RW has.
So I stared out with $19 + tax $25 a month to $13 -17 a month with taxes, now to $23 a month with taxes over a 6 year period. I don’t know of any services that I’ve received where my bill stayed steady or even went down for a 6 year period, (other than my trash pick up company, which hit me a few months ago with a $3.00 increase)!
Good post, thank you. I too hope data refund of some type of roll over makes an appearance. RW is keeping current and innovative, you never know what they’re going to surprise with next.
