There are probably a few stragglers like you, who were a late 2011 that fall under the 3 year PRE flex tab... which yes would fall under the old penalties.
Everyone after that, would be on a 3 year or 2 year flex tab.... which it wouldnt apply to.
So yes, there are a smaller amount likely left now, which it may apply to.
True, it could be a significant # of people...
But its still only a % of that.. that actually would CANCEL early.
Really all in all... yes... no matter what..
The rules for canceling... VARRY, depending on WHEN your contract was signed.. and what the terms were for it.
Each contract has its own terms... 2 year vs 3 year... flex tab vs pre flex tab, etc.
There is no steadfast rule for every customer.
The BEST place to find this info? Its in the contract when you sign up for the service. It lays out what the payback/canceling fees are.
Nothing new here!
Yeah of course, why would they be upfront and honest about it? Hopefully in my life time, the cell phone service industry changes from an oligopoly to a competitive market in Canada....
