Can top up voucher be used for the value plans or is it solely for the talk only plans. Couldn't get through to customer service, and the store I called was unable to answer the question.
Interested in Nokia C3 ($109 w/out plan, $54.50 w/$100 top up which also includes an additional $25 if activated b4 a certain date). Stupid question I know, but they've got me a bit confused!

The $100 will be money in your account to use for any of their services, in my view.

I just received this promo as and email. They also state that sim cards can once again be ordered on line!!!

Thanks Jimbo! Finally got through to customer service who confirmed it would be added to account as you said. People looking to take advantage of the 50% off phone with $100 purchase may want to call their local store b4 purchasing. Here the deal was so new, that the some of the stores I called weren't aware of it and had to check b4 agreeing to it.

LOL, even when it's been going on for a month some of the employees won't be aware of it. In fact, for a detail like how the bonus is applied, most will NEVER be aware of the actual answer. (Note that the $25 bonus happens when you activate, NOT at the store - but the employees do need to know that the half price phone is legit.

It's a great deal, but poorly orchestrated.

I went to my local 7-11 to buy a C3 at this great deal of 1/2 price when buying a $100 top-up voucer. But my local store doesn't have any of the C3 phones in stock. So good luck trying to find one. I phoned around to 20 near by 7-11 stores for the C3. None of them had a single one.

So good deal.

Good luck trying to find one in a store.

Useless promotion.

If the Nokia C3's are selling out then it looks as though the promotion has been very well orchestrated and a huge success. It seems to me that the promotion was designed to clear the stock of Nokia phones.

The Nokia phones have served my family great on Speakout, but looking forward to finding out what they will be offering next.
