When dealing with Bell in a dispute:

1 Get your facts together
2 Write a letter to the office of the president (email)
3 Phone the office of the President (document all names, times, etc.)
4 Write the CRTC
5 There is a telecom complaints dept. - google it

You will win your dispute if your facts are correct. Bell will always relent.


Good luck.

One word sums up this horrible service. BELL

I would switch to a company that knows what they are doing. Bell has proven over and over again that they care nothing for the consumer and will soak up every penny that you have.

You have a contract....they MUST abide by it.

The original poster--me--is not asking for a new plan.
I just want to fully use the one I signed up for.

You have the one you signed up for!

Did you, during the offer period, sign up for the $10 iPad sharing to go along with the data plan?

The plan you have is designed to be shared, but does not include sharing, which is $10 per month additional.

There was never any mention of this being a promotion.it was simply my data plan. There was no mention, or words on my contract, that I would have to pay $10 more.

Well, that was the data plan structure offered. (Unless you had a corporate or retentions plan not publicly available.)

"iPhone 4 Promotion Details–Including iPad Offer:
-From July 30 to September 30th get 6GB of data for only $30 per month with unlimited Wi-Fi in over 750 locations including all Starbucks in Canada.

- Have an iPad too? For an additional $10 per month, you can share the data between both your iPhone 4 and iPad."

I agree the billing naming is misleading, but, It is meant to indicate that the particular data plan in question could be shared, not that it DOES sharing.

Subsequently, to add sharing outside of the promotional window is a change of plan.
It sounds like that's what you have right there. If you stick with your current plan your rate won't change, if you add in the ipad they should be charging you the $30 plus whatever the current rate is for data sharing. That's how any contract works. If you got some sort of deal that your $30 includes the ipad too then you should either call back or go into a bell store and talk to them about it. At the most they should only be charging sort of 1 time fee and that's it.

I have a student plan with Virgin and they do try to get me to switch,
But, There is no way I'll ever switch plans, I have the Super Tab plan,

I had the pay as you go plan before they sold out to Bell,
But found a secret $55. plan hidden on their website,
It was the equivalent of a student plan, Except they gave it to me for life.

So long as I never cancel the plan, I'm on it.

Lol
