RogersBuzz team answered my call!

In mid-August, I challenged wireless carriers to replace my antiquated flip phone with a capable smartphone.

If any were to respond, I had suspected Wind Mobile. They have a stronger B.C. presence than the other wireless startups, Moblicity and Public Mobile, and claim to listen to the social media buzz.

If not them, then Koodo or Telus. Why? Because my flip phone was with Koodo, so it would make sense for Telus (which owns Koodo) to step forward and retain me as a customer.

But I was wrong on both counts. In the end, it was actually Rogers who approached me over my challenge.

Miranda, a social media specialist with RogersBuzz, approached me on Twitter with regards to my blog post. After exchanging a few emails with her and another lady named Melanie, we reached a mutually satisfying agreement. I'll be engaging with a few new smartphones over the next little while and then documenting my experiences with them.

(Wonders if Koodo Mobile will even notice my loyalty slipping from their inattentive fingers?)
