Here's the deal: You got a discount off the price of your phone based on the plan level (Silver, Gold or Platinum) that you committed to when you hooked up or upgraded.
That means, if you want to switch from a higher plan level to a lower one (say, from Platinum to Silver) then there might be a Plan Level Change Fee.
The fee would be to make up for the difference between the original discount you got on your phone and the discount you would be able to get at the new plan level you want to move to.

The last thing we want is for you to get a crazy-high bill. You can avoid overages by keeping track of your usage in My Account and making sure you stay inside your plan’s limits.
A credit limit is a pre-set spending limit for your services that’s applied to your account. It’s decided and agreed on at your first credit check when you hooked up with us.
If you travel outside of Canada you’ll be charged the rates of the country you are in for calling, texting or using data. Check out the US roaming rates and international roaming rates. You can also grab a roaming add-on feature to reduce charges and save cash.
TIP: If you’re using Wi-Fi on your phone when travelling, make sure to turn off data roaming!
Your Credit Limit will be lifted and security deposit returned after 6 months of on-time payments in a row.
The security deposit is usually added back to your account as a credit. If you want to get a cheque for it, then wait to get a text message from us saying that your Credit Limits has been taken off and then give Care a shout to ask for a cheque. Before the cheque is sent out, the deposit will be used to pay any balance owing on your account. Also make sure we have the most up-to-date address for you since that’s where we’ll be mailing the cheque to!
Remember, you can update your address online in My Account
It can take up to 3 days for collection calls to stop after a payment is received.
We need a couple of days to pull all of the details together and process your monthly bill. Generally, you’ll get your bill in about 9 business days. After that you can see it online. Once it’s posted online you still have 21 days to pay it, so there’s lots of time to make sure you get that payment in without any late payment fees.
Payments through your bank can take a bit longer and your bank is the one responsible for processing them. We should get the payment in about 3 to 10 business days. Hang tight!
