Mobilicity Savings Challenge asks consumers how they would spend their
savings for chance to win BlackBerry PlayBook and BlackBerry
TORONTO, April 18 /CNW/ - Take a trip up the Eiffel Tower? Drive around
in a shiny new set of wheels? Pay down your student loans or mortgage
quicker? What would you do with the money you'll save with Mobilicity's
unlimited talk, text and data plans?
That's the question the Mobilicity Savings Challenge is asking Canadians
at www.mobilicitychallenge.ca for the chance to win a BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet and one of 11 BlackBerry Bold™ 9780 smartphones, complete with unlimited talk, text and data service.
As Mobilicity prepares to launch its unlimited network in Calgary next
week, the rising, new carrier is reinforcing its commitment to bringing
down the cost of wireless for consumers, tired of being charged among
the highest rates in the western world by Bell, Rogers and Telus.
"It's not uncommon to hear of consumers paying hundreds or even
thousands of dollars every month for wireless, which is absolutely
insane," said Mobilicity Vice President of Marketing Sara Moore. "We
think Canadians deserve better. We also think they can find better ways
to spend their money - that's what the Mobilicity Savings Challenge is
Mobilicity provides 100 percent bill certainty for a quality wireless
experience. It offers the latest handsets, including BlackBerry and
Android smartphones, and a state-of-the-art 3.5G network - without the
contracts, credit checks or outrageous monthly bills commonly
associated with Canada's incumbent carriers.
Mobilicity's unlimited plans start at just $25/month with the option to
add unlimited data for only $10 a month. The data offer enables
customers to access the Internet to check email, surf the web and visit
social networking sites for the equivalent of about 33 cents a day -
with no risk of getting an expensive bill for using more data than is
included in their plan.
The Mobilicity Savings Challenge runs through May 14, 2011. For complete
contest details, visit www.mobilicitychallenge.ca.
