Process

Q : How long does the whole process take? 

A : Each plan only takes us 30 minutes. However, changes can only be made once your first billing cycle starts. This date is assigned to you upon activation at the store. It is chosen at random by the system and it is usually 2-9 days after you activate. There is no way to customize or choose your bill cycle date. There is NO way around this. We have to play by the carriers rules.

Security

 

Q: Do you have a retail store? 

A:

We have customers in all nooks and crannies of Canada. It is simply not possible to have that kind of reach with a physical store. Our services are provided securely through online channels. We communicate through SMS, phone, and e-mail. We accept payment through Interac E transfer and Paypal. Secondly, to ensure your safety and privacy – the accounts are initially activated at your nearest authorized retailer.

100% - We put your satisfaction first, which means all of your information is handled with the utmost security.

  • Our process is designed to be completely safe and secure

  • Our website is SSL certified

  • We only take payment after your plan change is delivered.

  • We have great reviews and have been mentioned in top news publications in Canada such as Huffington Post, CBC and The Globe and Mail.

Check out our reviews here and here

 

Q: What information do I need to provide you? 

A: We ask you fill out a form with your account information. We do not ask for any personal information like your SIN, drivers license, or credit card. If anybody is asking you for that information online beware!

 

Q: What do you have to say about CPM copy-cats with cheesy names? 

A: When we started this service, there was nothing like it in all of Canada. Throughout the years many other people have tried to offer our services but with disastrous results. We are the ONLY people who have a guarantee for your plan. 

 

Q: Why should I choose you over someone else, especially if their fee is cheaper? 

A: Always remember you get what you pay for. You should choose us because:

  • We started this thing. Nobody has the experience we have. They can all make claims but nobody can back it up. We have experience with EVERY carrier (Bell, Rogers, Telus, Virgin and Fido). Most of these people only popped up recently and claim to have been in business for "years" - yeah right!

  • We had 2 million views on our Kijiji ad in 2013, this is still the most viewed ad in ALL of Kijiji History

  • When we started this service, our service was called "Robin Hood for Canadian Mobile plans" by CBC when all of these other providers got involved, news outlets started calling it "Black Market wireless plans" . What does that tell you? 

  • We have DOZENS of screenshots from customers who have been scammed by these people claiming to use the same process as us. Again - you get what you pay for!

I used my real name on my Kijiji Ad. Months later people were copying and pasting my ad with names like John, Drew, Thomas (lol). Some even have similar names to us. Most of those "companies" are gone now and more pop up everyday. Please be careful!
