- Whether you have been naughty or nice, WIND wants to make sure everyone can call their loved ones over the holidays
- WIND is also offering free gift wrapping and deals to make gifting easier
TORONTO, Dec. 1 /CNW/ - This holiday season WIND Mobile is making sure everyone can call their friends and loved ones - no matter where in the world they live - by unveiling mobile phone booths offering free long distance calling. Whether it's a student studying in Canada and unable to make it home for the holidays, a new Canadian spending their first year away from home or just someone wanting to call mom, WIND wants everybody to enjoy The Power of Conversation.
In a recent survey, WIND found the most popular way to send season's greetings is still a good old fashioned phone call (70 per cent) even when compared with texting (18 per cent), email (66 per cent) or regular mail (55 per cent). To ensure everyone can make their calls, colourful, mobile phone booths have been set up at stores in Ottawa, Toronto, Hamilton, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. People can enjoy up to five free minutes of talk time to any mobile or land line in the world.
