So, you know about the Wind Mobile phones and you know about their monthly plans, but that’s not enough to entice you into their fold? Well, Wind Mobile is working even harder to attract new customers, because it sounds like they are giving away free SIM cards to boot.
Just like any other GSM carrier, you can bring your unlocked GSM phone over to Wind and get your service that way, but you normally have to purchase a SIM card. As best as I can recall, Rogers and Fido charge about $35 for a new SIM card. Wind is offering them for free.
If you go to the FAQ section on the website, it says that “you can now get a SIM card and service from WIND without buying a WIND phone.” Going through the steps, it also says that there is “no charge for the WIND SIM card, you just need to buy WIND plan – any plan.”
Yippee! Moving over to the Wind Mobile seems like a pretty straightforward process. Assuming that they have the number portability thing ready to go, you can make the leap from Telus, Bell, Rogers, or whoever at your favorite corporate Wind store (or Blockbuster kiosk).
