Canadian department store offers
unlimited wireless carrier's products in time for the holidays.
TORONTO, Dec. 3 /CNW/ - Mobilicity today announced that Zellers is carrying its unlimited wireless offerings to make it easy and affordable for Canadians to give the gift of 3G wireless this holiday season.
"Teaming up with Zellers makes tremendous sense given our mutual focus to deliver quality and affordability to value-conscious Canadians," said Vice President, Sales, Doug Perry. "We are growing our presence in retail outlets across Canada to make it easier for consumers to buy and use 3G wireless service they can count on."
Mobilicity's value-packed UNLIMITED to GO phone + airtime bundle is now available at over 50 Zellers locations in Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton and Ottawa - without a contract or credit check.
Zellers offers UNLIMITED to GO with a Sony Ericsson TM506 flip phone ($99.99) or HTC SnapTM smartphone ($129.99). Each handset comes with three months of Mobilicity's $35 rate plan, which includes unlimited local talk and text, unlimited province-wide long-distance calling, voicemail, caller ID, call waiting, call forwarding, 3-way calling in its unlimited coverage areas across the country.
Today's news marks another retail distribution coup for the unlimited wireless carrier. Earlier this week, Mobilicity confirmed an agreement with popular entertainment retailer hmv. Last month, it announced its products would be sold at 7-Eleven Canada stores across Toronto, Vancouver and Edmonton.
