Wind Drops WINDTab Support for Grandfathered Plans Under $35

Wind Mobile Tab

While cellphone users are still in the midst of grieving the loss of Mobilicity, another competitive provider in a world monopolized by the Big Three, we’ve been hit with yet another–albeit smaller–piece of bad news.

As of June 22nd, 2016, Wind Mobile will stop supporting WINDTab availability for any and all grandfathered plans that are under $35/month. What is a grandfathered plan, you may ask. A grandfathered plan is a plan that the company provided in the past (usually a cheaper rate)–but no longer offers–they allow you to keep it because you purchased it at a time when it was available. If you change your plan from the grandfathered plan at any time once it is discontinued, you can never get it again unless it is miraculously offered once again.

For many years, Wind’s ultimate way-to-save for all plans across the board was the WINDTab. With WINDTab, the service provider gives you a towards a smartphone which is spread out and depleted over a period of time–usually over 24 consecutive months. For example, if you wanted to purchase a smartphone worth $350 and you had a WINDTab credit of $150, you would only have to pay $200 upfront. Over the next 24 months or so, your WINDTab would be depleted by 10% each month. If you stay with the company for long enough, they would then pay off the remaining balance for you as a thank-you gesture.

Once the update is effective, if you want to upgrade your phone while on a grandfathered Wind plan under $35/month, you’d either have to purchase the phone outright or change over to a current, in-market, and eligible WINDTab plan.

OnePlus 3

OnePlus 3

Having gone from a small company to half the world watching the release of their next phone, OnePlus has certainly made itself a household name. The recent release of their third flagship phone, the OnePlus 3, has many commenting that the company has nearly produced the perfect phone.

It has almost all of the specs of other flagship phones with the exception of a high price. At just $519, the OnePlus 3 can easily be called the company’s best phone yet–and perhaps finally a true competitor to current flagship phones. This, along with the company’s astronomical growth since their first OnePlus One, likely contributed to OnePlus’ decision to finally remove their pesky invitation system.

Design-wise, we certainly think that OnePlus has hit the perfect balance between HTC phones, iPhones, and Galaxy S phones. Ever catch yourself thinking “man, if only those companies teamed up to design a phone”? Get yourself a OnePlus 3.

It has a solid design and feel, made out of one piece of metal. It carries enough weight in your hands that it doesn’t feel like a cheap phone, and enough weight in your pockets so that you won’t constantly be worried about having lost it. It has a 5.5” screen with a 1920×1080 (401ppi) display. While it’s true that it can’t keep up to other phones in terms of resolution, the phone makes up for it in so many other ways.

One Plus 3-2

It carries Snapdragon 820 as its processor paired with 6GB of RAM and AMOLED display. It also comes with a 3,000mAh battery. Put all of these features together and you’ll be appreciating the battery life more than you’d wish you were appreciating a quad HD display. On top of that, OnePlus has introduced Dash Charging, which is basically the equivalent of Samsung’s Fast Charge (and a plethora of other fast charging methods). Compared to the S7, though, the OnePlus 3 charges faster. Nevermind that on paper both say you can get over 60% of charge in just 30 minutes. In real life, the OnePlus 3 continues at its fast pace even when you’re using it while charging whereas the S7 will slow down.

It has a fingerprint sensor–today’s mark of a true flagship phone–that is quite accurate and works relatively quickly. The camera on this phone sports a 16MP rear shooter with OIS. While it doesn’t really compare to Samsung’s cell-phone camera, the OnePlus 3 camera is still nothing to scoff at–especially at its price point. The shutter and autofocus speeds are both quick, and while the software can sometimes get in the way of your photography (ISO can sometimes get turned up far too high), for the $519 CAD, you can’t really go wrong.

Of course, the phone comes with OnePlus’ own Oxygen OS, which masks over Android’s 6.0 Marshmallow. The company has amped up the possibilities to coax you into loving their OS. For example, you can customize the recent apps key as well as the return key. You can use a dark mode to help save battery, as well as change the LED colour. When the screen is off, you’ll be able to draw different shapes to bring up different apps.

For the price you can get this phone at (and there’s no invitation required now, so you can go buy one right now), there’s no direct competition considering everything this phone offers. You can get a better cellphone camera, a removable battery, or expandable storage with other phones–but you can’t get them at anywhere close to the price of the OnePlus 3.
