9. Is 9-1-1 always available? Is Bell Responsible for Emergency Alerts? No. Further details below.

(a) 9-1-1: Bell provides 9-1-1 emergency call routing Service (“9-1-1 Service”), which may not always work for a variety of reasons. Also, 9-1-1 Service does not work with all Devices or Rate Plans (as defined in Section 14): certain Devices like tablets, modems and turbo sticks/hubs or Devices equipped with data-only Rate Plans may not support, or be intended for, voice services and either cannot be used to call or access 9-1-1 or if 9-1-1 access is available, it may include important limitations, for example, the 9-1-1 operator’s inability to call you back in the event your call is disconnected. Section 10 sets out additional reasons that 9-1-1 Service may not work on all Devices. While Bell provides emergency call routing when the 9-1-1 Service is available and the Device is capable, it is the local government that provides the 9-1-1 emergency response services. If you are calling from an area where 9-1-1 emergency response services are not available, then your call may not be routed to a live operator. Contact your local government for additional information. For an explanation about 9-1-1 Service and information about where 9-1-1 Service may be available, please visit bell.ca/e911. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Bell is not responsible for any inability to access 9-1-1 Service.

(b) Emergency Alerts: As required by law, Bell distributes mandatory emergency alerts issued by government bodies (such as Environment and Climate Change Canada) that it receives from the Alert Ready system (“Emergency Alerts”) to compatible Devices connected on the Bell LTE network. Bell is not responsible for the operation of the Alert Ready system, including the content, timing and/or receipt of an Emergency Alert. For information on Emergency Alerts and Device compatibility, please visit alertready.ca/wireless.

10. Will all Bell Services work with all Devices?

No. Bell does not guarantee the Services, including 9-1-1 Service, will work on all Devices, especially if the Device was not purchased directly from Bell or if it was modified in a way which Bell has not authorized (including, but not limited to, via manufacturer or third-party software updates or downloads, third-party unlocking services or Device tampering). Your Bell SIM Card may not be compatible with all Devices, and your Bell Services (including Rate Plan and Data Feature (as defined in Section 14)) must be used exclusively with the specific type of compatible Device that Bell has identified at bell.ca. It is your responsibility to ensure that your chosen Device is able to fulfill your requirements, including that it is compatible with connecting technologies if you need handsfree or similar capabilities.

11. What happens if my Device becomes outdated?

Bell provides you with a variety of subscription options when ordering Bell Services. You can subscribe to pre-defined Services (your “Rate Plan”), add features (not within the Rate Plan) that interest you (in the case of data Service, a “Data Feature” and otherwise an “Add-on”), and have the additional option of using and paying for certain Services as-needed (“Pay-Per-Use”). The amount you must pay for any use of the Services (your “Charges”) will vary depending on the combination of Services you select. Any usage over and above that which is included in your Rate Plan, Add-on or Data Feature is additional usage (“Additional Usage”) and will be charged in accordance with Section 15. Remember that you are responsible for choosing the combination of Services that is most appropriate to your needs.

15. What happens if I exceed the usage limits of my Rate Plan, Add-on or Data Feature?

Device Payment Customers must also pay the monthly Device payment shown on your Critical Information Summary (“Monthly Device Payment”) in accordance with the terms of your Disclosure Statement. “Charges” (as defined in Section 14) includes Monthly Device Payments for Device Payment Customers. Certain third party app providers may charge you a fee for subscribing to their app and you are responsible for these fees.

17. How do I manage my account and Charges?

You can review your account and your voice, text and data usage online through bell.ca/MyBell, or by downloading the Bell Self serve App to your You can update account information, add Add-ons to your account, view and change your Rate Plan and Data Feature details, manage which subscriber(s) on your account is authorized to unblock data and accept additional data charges for your account (each such subscriber, an “authorized user”), edit your notification preferences for data blocks, and monitor and manage your monthly activity to ensure your usage remains within your Rate Plan, Add-on or Data Feature limits through your Self serve profile.

18. How does Bell calculate my usage Charges? It depends on the Service being used.

  1. Voice: Both local and long distance calls are rounded up to the nearest minute, unless otherwise Time begins when you initiate a call (for example, by pressing “Send”) or, for calls you receive, from the moment the call request connects to Bell’s network (which may be before the Device rings) until the time the activity is disconnected (for example, by pressing “End”). If you call a phone number outside of your local coverage area or if you receive a phone call when outside your local coverage area you will be charged for long distance Services. Airtime and long distance Charges also apply to call forwarding. For an explanation of local and long distance coverage areas, visit bell.ca/coverage. Calls to special numbers (excluding those operated by and on behalf of Bell), including those beginning with a “#” or a “*” or short codes (billed per call) are not included within your Rate Plan or Add-ons and may result in additional charges.
  2. Text: Bell counts your incoming and outgoing text Long text messages may be broken up into smaller segments, in which case you will be charged per segment. There may be circumstances where your Device is inactive and incoming text messages are received by Bell’s networks but cannot be delivered to your Device. Applicable text Charges continue to apply even if you do not immediately receive them. Interactive text messages (also known as premium short code messages) are counted outside of normal text message Charges and additional Fees apply. Premium short code messages can be stopped by replying to a message with the word STOP. Visit bell.ca/antispam for further information or to block premium short code messages. Texts to special numbers (excluding those operated by and on behalf of Bell), including those beginning with a “#” or a “*” or short codes (billed per text) are not included within your Rate Plan or Add-ons and may result in additional charges.
  3. Data: Data usage is rounded up to the nearest kilobyte, unless otherwise Applicable data Charges apply from the moment a data transmission starts and are measured by the data sent and received by Bell’s networks in connection with such transmission, whether or not the data request is successfully completed. This means that any of your account usage details may be greater than the data actually received by your Device in connection with the Services. Note as well that certain third party apps may generate data usage even when you are not actively engaged in using them – it is your responsibility to understand how much data is used by your selected app(s). Certain Rate Plans, Add-ons or Data Features that include data may apply to on-Device transmissions only – so if you use your Device as a modem or tether, then you may be charged Pay-Per-Use Charges for data Services. Bell will temporarily block data usage on your account once it reaches $50 in Additional Usage Charges for domestic data per billing cycle. At such time, all subscribers on your account who have reached 100% of their Data Feature will be blocked. If you or any authorized user(s) on your account wish to unblock data on your account, then you (or they) may expressly consent to continued Additional Usage Charges. If you (or they) do not consent, then data Services will be blocked on the account until the start of the next billing cycle. You will also receive notice if your access to data Services is restricted or suspended due to a credit limit or past due amounts as set out in Section 61.
  4. Roaming: You’re “roaming” whenever your Device has to use another wireless service provider’s network to send or receive voice, text or data Roaming can occur in Canada or internationally. Depending on your Rate Plan, international roaming rates may be significantly higher. Your Device may not be able to roam internationally unless you ask Bell to enable this function and Bell agrees to do so. Certain Rate Plans do not include international roaming and some Devices are unable to roam internationally. If you enable this function and enter an international roaming area, you will be advised that you are roaming internationally and be provided with details on your roaming rate Charges. For current roaming rate Charges, visit bell.ca/travel. Bell will temporarily block data roaming usage on your account once it reaches $100 in Additional Usage Charges for international data roaming per billing cycle. If you or any authorized user(s) on your account wish to continue using data roaming, then you (and they) will be given the opportunity to purchase a travel pass. If you (or they) do not purchase a travel pass, then data roaming Services will be blocked on the account until the start of the next billing cycle. You will also receive notice if your access to data roaming Services is restricted or suspended due to a credit limit or past due amounts as set out in Section 61.

    Rounding practices for U.S. and international voice and data roaming may vary depending on how the wireless service provider permitting you to access their network calculates usage.

19. Can I change my Rate Plan after I agree to a Commitment Period?

Yes, however Bell may restrict Rate Plan changes, or require that you pay a Cancellation Fee (as described in Section 59).

20. What if I move during my Commitment Period?

Some Services in a Share Plan cannot be shared, and some Services cannot be blocked from other subscribers. A Share Plan requires at least two Devices on two separate plans designated as sharable.

22. Does my Rate Plan include a system access fee and/or $0.75 9-1-1 Service Fee?

Replacement Devices will not exceed $1,500 retail price per replacement even if the retail price of the Protected Device is higher.

    If (a) the failure happens within the first 12 months of you activating the Protected Device on the Bell network; and (b) the failure is due to defects in parts or workmanship, then the manufacturer’s warranty will apply and Bell will not replace the Protected Device under your SPC Plan.

Fees vary depending on whether the Protected Device is a wireless phone, turbo stick, smartphone, premium smartphone, tablet or premium tablet. Service Replacement Fees are lower than the full retail value of the Protected Device. See the Smart/Phone Care Fees table below for your applicable Service Replacement Fee.

  6. Does my Replacement Device come with a manufacturer’s warranty?
    The Replacement Device immediately becomes the Protected Device, and it is warranted to be free of defects in parts and workmanship for a period of 90 calendar days from, the date it is shipped to you (“Replacement Device Warranty Period”). If, during the Replacement Device Warranty Period, the Replacement Device fails to operate due to defects in parts or workmanship, it will be replaced with a further replacement device of comparable kind and quality and such further replacement will not be subject to a Service Replacement Fee nor will it be counted toward the maximum Replacement Devices you are entitled to as described in Section 8 below.

  7. What happens if I return my Protected Device to Bell and Bell decides the failure is excluded from coverage?
    If Bell decides the Protected Device did not suffer a Failure or the failure is not protected by your SPC Plan, then we’ll let you know in writing.

Are there any rules regarding my use of Bell Services, the Bell networks or my Device? Yes. Bell encourages all of its Customers to use the Bell Services responsibly. Abuse or misuse of Bell Services, the Bell networks, or Devices impacts all Customers and is something Bell takes very seriously - and which could result in the termination of your Agreement with Bell, or lead to criminal or civil charges. Bell may immediately suspend, restrict, change or cancel all or part of your Services and modify or deactivate your Device without notice or take other necessary protective measures if Bell has reasonable grounds to believe there is a breach of any of these provisions. For example, you are strictly prohibited from:

(a) using, enabling, facilitating, or permitting the use of any Bell Services or your Device for an illegal purpose, criminal or civil offence, intellectual property infringement, harassment (including cyberbullying, cybercrime, disruptive, intimidating, annoying or offensive calls/transmissions), or in a manner that would breach any law, regulation or the policies of any Internet host;

(b) installing, using or permitting the use of any Bell Services without reading and accepting (or in contravention of) the terms of any separate license agreement or terms of use for the use of software, content (including Programming) and/or documentation (as applicable) in connection with the Bell Services;

(c) enabling, facilitating or permitting the transmission of unsolicited messages such as spamming or phishing. Bell may (i) filter any message determined by Bell to be spam from your in-box to an anti-spam folder and delete this message; and (ii) set a limit on the number of messages a Customer may send or receive through email;

(d) uploading or downloading, making available, transmitting, posting, publishing, disseminating, receiving, retrieving, storing, linking to or otherwise reproducing, offering, distributing, enabling or providing access to information, software, content, files or other material which: (i) is confidential or protected by copyright or other intellectual property rights without prior authorization of the rights holder(s); (ii) is defamatory, discriminatory, violent, obscene, child pornography or hate propaganda; (iii) constitutes invasion of privacy, impersonation, forging, appropriation of identity or unauthorized linking or framing; or (iv) is designed to assist users in defeating technological protection measures (like geoblocks), registration and any other anti-theft mechanisms or in the fraudulent use of telecommunications or broadcasting services;

(e) using or purchasing any Bell Service for the purpose of reselling, remarketing, transferring, sharing or receiving any charge or other benefit for the use of any Bell Service, or for continuous data transmission or broadcasts (including multi-media streaming, automatic data feeds, automated machine to machine connections or peer-to-peer file sharing, voice over Internet protocol or any other application that is not made available to you by Bell which may or may not use excessive network capacity), or to provide a substitute or back-up for private lines or dedicated data connections such as DSL and/or to operate any server system. If you engage in any of these activities you will pay in full all charges billed to you at a rate which will be the greater of the in-market rate or $30 per megabyte plus applicable taxes, regardless of the total amount due in addition to any applicable legal consequences and costs ordered against you;

(f) attempting to receive any Bell Service without paying the applicable Charges or Fees, modifying or disassembling your Device (including the alteration, copying, reproduction of or tampering with electronic serial numbers, IMEI or other identification, signaling or transmission functions or components of your Device), changing any identifier issued by Bell or a Bell company, attempting to bypass Bell’s network, or rearranging, disconnecting, removing, repairing or otherwise interfering with Bell Services, Bell equipment or Bell’s facilities;

Customers whose wireless usage exceeds this threshold may, in Bell’s sole discretion, have their Services suspended, disconnected, changed or restricted, including having data speeds reduced to as low as 16 kbps;

(h) adapting, reproducing, translating, modifying, decompiling, disassembling, reverse engineering or otherwise interfering with any software, applications or programs used in connection with Bell Services (whether owned by or used under licence to Bell) for any purpose including “testing” or research purposes; or modifying, altering, or defacing any of the trade-marks, or other intellectual property made available through Bell Services or using any indemnity or intellectual property except for the express purpose for which such intellectual property is made available to you through Bell Services;

(i) posting or transmitting any content, data or software containing a virus, “cancelbot”, “Trojan horse”, “worm” or other harmful or disruptive component or committing any act which may compromise the security of your Internet host in any way (including analyzing or penetrating a host’s security mechanisms); and

(j) using harassing or abusive language or actions, whether verbal, written or otherwise, directed at Bell employees, suppliers, agents and representatives.
