Apparently the new plans are called "carryover" and the bonus minutes and data are now a part of the bundle and not called bonus minutes / data separately

The new plans are a downgrade for me. For $39 I get 120 minutes and 100 bonus for life. That's 220. Since I rarely reach 120 each month the balance rolls over each month anyway and then I get the bonus 100 for the next month. So that side is a wash.

However on the data side going from 100Mb and 1GB of bonus data is certainly not as attractive as the 750MB the new plan offers. Of course when the 1G of bonus data expires in 2 years (well 12 months for me I think) then it's time to re-evaluate but then there will be new offerings on the market.

Bit of a bummer to see that international rates have gone up to be inline with the other providers. That was a decent pull keeping me with 2D.

Also if I move from the old $39 plan to the new $39 plan, I assume I will loose my 1gb bonus data?

Probably should have a new thread for the plan upgrades...
