Availability of Your Service and 9-1-1 Limitations
6. Where are the Services available?
Lucky Mobile and our roaming partners provide Service coverage for almost all of the populated areas in Canada. Visit luckymobile.ca/coverage for our latest service coverage areas and maps. Lucky Mobile and our roaming partners may, from time to time and without notice, change networks or geographical coverage areas, including Zones (as defined in Section 15). Lucky Mobile is not responsible for any loss you or anyone else may suffer as a result of any disruptions or outages to the Services, or as a result of any changes to the networks or geographical coverage areas.
7. What speed can I expect from the Services?
As fast as our technology, and your Device and selected Services, allow. Lucky Mobile doesn’t guarantee the Services will achieve peak speeds (even if you pay extra to get higher peak speeds). When delivering your Services, Lucky Mobile may employ its different networks (including mobile networks and Wi-Fi networks) and manage network resources using methods which include (i) Internet traffic management practices; and (ii) prioritization or deprioritization of network access, all in a manner consistent with applicable law. If you violate our Responsible Use of Lucky Mobile Services policy (“Responsible Use Policy”) in Schedule A, then Lucky Mobile may, among other things, reduce your speed for network management purposes or terminate your Services. Please review the Responsible Use Policy for greater detail. For a description of our Internet traffic management practices, please visit luckymobile.ca/ITMP.
8. Is 9-1-1 always available? Is Lucky Mobile responsible for Emergency Alerts?
No. Further details below.
(a) 9-1-1: Lucky Mobile 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 Plans (as defined in Section 13): certain Devices like tablets, modems and turbo sticks/hubs or Devices equipped with data-only 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 9 sets out additional reasons that 9-1-1 Service may not work on all Devices. While Lucky Mobile 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 luckymobile.ca/911. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Lucky Mobile is not responsible for any inability to access 9-1-1 Service.
(b) Emergency Alerts: As required by law, Lucky Mobile 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 Lucky Mobile LTE network. Lucky Mobile 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.
9. Will all Lucky Mobile Services work with all Devices?
No. Lucky Mobile does not guarantee the Services, including 9-1-1 Service, will work on all Devices, especially if the Device was not purchased directly from Lucky Mobile or if it was modified in a way which Lucky Mobile 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 Lucky Mobile SIM Card may not be compatible with all Devices. 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.
10. What happens if my Device becomes outdated?
Lucky Mobile may change the minimum technology requirements for the Lucky Mobile Services in which case you may need to replace your Device. If you fail to do so, your Device might not be adequate to access the Services and your only remedy will be to cancel the affected Lucky Mobile Services.
11. Does Lucky Mobile issue credits for Service outages?
Any credit or refund for Service unavailability is entirely at Lucky Mobile’s discretion.
Managing Your Account
12. What is the term of my Agreement?
Your Agreement with Lucky Mobile begins upon initial activation of the Services and there is no term commitment.
13. What is the difference between a Plan, an Add-On and Pay-Per-Use Services?
Lucky Mobile provides you with a variety of subscription options when ordering Lucky Mobile Services. You can subscribe to pre-defined Services (your “Plan”), add features (not within the Plan) that interest you (an “Add-On”), and have the additional option of using and paying for certain Services as-needed (“Pay-Per-Use”), including via a service pass (“Service Pass”). 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 Plan or Add-On is additional usage (“Additional Usage”) and will be charged in accordance with Section 14. Remember that you are responsible for choosing the combination of Services that is most appropriate to your needs.
14. What happens if I reach the usage limits of my Plan or Add-On?
You have the option to purchase a Service Pass (if available) for additional usage. Visit luckymobile.ca/servicepasses for more information.
In the case of data usage, if you reach your usage limit, you must purchase a Service Pass or Add-On, as applicable, to continue using data or Lucky Mobile may continue to provide you with data Services at reduced speeds. Visit luckymobile.ca/ITMP for additional information.
15. How do Lucky Mobile Zones affect my Services?
A zone (“Zone”) is a set geographical location defined by Lucky Mobile. Select Plans available with Lucky Mobile – a “Zone Plan” – restrict your Plan usage to eligible Zones. If you have a Zone Plan, additional Charges may apply for use of your Services outside of your specified Zone(s).
Visit luckymobile.ca/zones for additional information.
16. Will I have to pay anything in addition to the Charges described above?
There may indeed be cases where additional fees (“Fees”) apply, for example, if a customer service representative completes a transaction on your behalf. You will be notified of, and must agree to, a Fee before it is charged. Visit luckymobile.ca/onetimefees for additional information. Fees are usually charged separately from your Plan and may change from time to time in accordance with Section 44. 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 details online through luckymobile.ca/myaccount. You can update account information, add Add-Ons to your account and view or change your Plan details.
18. How does Lucky Mobile calculate my usage Charges?
It depends on the Service being used.
- Voice: Both local and long distance calls are rounded up to the nearest minute, unless otherwise stated. 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 Lucky Mobile’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, as applicable, your Zone, or if you receive a phone call when outside your local coverage area or, as applicable, your Zone, you will be charged for long distance Airtime and long distance Charges also apply to voicemail retrieval. For an explanation of local and long distance coverage areas and Zones, visit luckymobile.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 Plan or Add-Ons and may result in additional Charges.
- Text: Lucky Mobile counts your incoming and outgoing text messages. 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 Lucky Mobile’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 luckymobile.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), and texts to landlines are not included within your Plan or Add-Ons and may result in additional Charges.
- Data: Data usage is rounded up to the nearest kilobyte, unless otherwise stated. Applicable data Charges apply from the moment a data transmission starts and are measured by the data sent and received by Lucky Mobile’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 Plans or Add-Ons 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.
- Roaming: You’re “roaming” whenever your Device has to use another wireless service provider’s network to send or receive voice, text or data transmissions. Roaming with Lucky Mobile can occur in Canada. Your Device will not be able to roam internationally with a Lucky Mobile SIM.
Yes, you may change your Plan and Add-Ons by logging into luckymobile.ca/myaccount. You are required to have enough funds in your account to cover the Charges for the newly selected Plan and/or Add-On(s), plus any additional taxes or Fees. Changes will take effect as of your next Monthly Charge Date (as defined in Section 33), but on the rare occasion in which Lucky Mobile may permit a change to take effect between Monthly Charge Dates, the price of, and usage included within, your new Plan and/or Add-On will be prorated to your next Monthly Charge Date.
20. What if I move?
Certain Plans are only available in certain locations. If you move to a different location than the one indicated on your account and wish to continue your Lucky Mobile Services, you may need to change your Plan (see Section 19) and/or your Mobile Number. Visit luckymobile.ca/onetimefees as additional Fees may also apply.
21. Do I own the mobile number that Lucky Mobile assigns me?
No. You do not own or acquire any right in any assigned mobile number. Lucky Mobile may change, withdraw or re-assign any number. Your mobile number may be automatically transmitted to the person you call, other carriers or to us. You can block this display either permanently or on a per-call basis at any time in accordance with the instructions posted from time to time on luckymobile.ca/support.
22. Can I keep my number?
- Transfers to Lucky Mobile. Lucky Mobile will ask your existing service provider to “transfer-in” or “port-in” your existing number if you: (i) confirm that you have the right to make the request; (ii) authorize Lucky Mobile to share with your existing service provider your information relevant to the transfer request (which may include personal information); and (iii) complete and sign any required request form. You are responsible for payment of fees and taxes owed to your existing service provider (including any applicable cancellation fee).
- Transfers from Lucky Mobile. If you or your new service provider ask us to, and your assigned account and mobile number are active, Lucky Mobile will process a “transfer-out” or “port-out” request for your mobile number to your new service provider. You are responsible for all Charges, Fees and taxes associated with the transfer from Lucky Mobile. Prepaid funds are non-refundable. Please refer to Section 47 to understand how to end your Agreement.
Lucky Mobile is not responsible for any interruption, disruption or disconnection of any services associated with the number which is the subject of a transfer request. A “transfer” of a number does not include the transfer of any associated services (including voicemails), devices or apps.
23. Who is responsible for protecting my account and Device?
You are responsible for the protection of your account(s) and password(s) and for all use of your account, the Lucky Mobile Services and your Device by yourself and any other users (including subscribers on your account). You must also protect your Device from theft, unauthorized use and software corruption. You are responsible to back up and safeguard your data, including your text, email and voicemail messages. Lucky Mobile may also require that you take proactive measures to protect your Device (for example, updating software). Lucky Mobile may delete your data and reset your Device to factory settings in certain circumstances. If you have concerns about unauthorized persons ordering Lucky Mobile Services without your permission, you should investigate the appropriate use of parental controls, passwords and personal identification numbers for your account. You are responsible for payment of all Charges on your account which is why it is so important to protect your account and keep account information up-to-date.
24. How do I use my Lucky Mobile Services responsibly?
You are responsible for using the Lucky Mobile Services in a legal and sensible manner. Lucky Mobile monitors usage on our networks to maintain the continuous, efficient operation of the Lucky Mobile Services and where necessary, enforces the rules contained in the Responsible Use Policy.

Lucky Mobile may disclose any information necessary to satisfy any law, regulation, governmental or other lawful request from any applicable jurisdiction or as necessary to operate and optimize Lucky Mobile Services and to protect itself or others and ensure Services are not being used contrary to the Responsible Use Policy.
25. Am I responsible for content that I create or engage with when using the Lucky Mobile Services?

27. Does Lucky Mobile provide its own content?
Lucky Mobile may provide its own content as part of certain Services, including interactive services and applications (“Applications”). Any Lucky Mobile content is provided on a “subject to availability” basis, may change in our discretion and may only be used by you in accordance with our Responsible Use Policy. Lucky Mobile will not refund Charges or credit you for any interruptions in your enjoyment of Lucky Mobile (or any other) content.

These updates may be required in order to continue receiving the Services.
30. What is Lucky Mobile’s return policy?

31. What happens if my Device is lost or stolen?
As soon as you let us know that your Device has been lost or stolen, we can suspend your Service. If you report your Device as lost or stolen, and Lucky Mobile has not been notified of its return within a specified time period, then the Device may be permanently disabled. Remember that this Agreement continues to apply even after you have reported your Device lost or stolen. In order to ensure that your funds are not compromised, we will suspend your recurring Charges and any automatic Top-Up program that you participate in (as defined in Section 34) once you notify us that your Device was lost or stolen. However, if your account remains suspended over four consecutive Monthly Charge Dates, your account will be deactivated and your mobile number may be reassigned in accordance with Section 48. Funds added to your account are non-refundable (including for suspended or deactivated accounts).
32. What happens if my Device doesn’t work?
Check your Device manual for troubleshooting tips that might help you solve the problem and contact the Device manufacturer for assistance. You will also find troubleshooting information on our website at luckymobile.ca/support. See Section 40 (Section 50 for Quebec customers) if your Device is covered by a manufacturer’s warranty and needs to be repaired. Visit luckymobile.ca/support for full details. You are responsible for the repair of your Device and we will not provide you with a loaner Device while your Device is being repaired.
Charges and Payment Information
You will not receive a monthly bill. You must have a sufficient balance of funds in your account on your Monthly Charge Date to pay for your Plan and any Add-On Charges (collectively, “Total Monthly Charges”). Your “Monthly Charge Date” is the date on which your Total Monthly Charges are deducted from your account. If your account balance is less than the Total Monthly Charges on your Monthly Charge Date, your account will be suspended (and your Plan and Add-On Services blocked) until you “Top-Up” your account balance with sufficient funds. Once your account is suspended, the date upon which your Total Monthly Charges are deducted successfully from your account will become your new Monthly Charge Date. If your account remains suspended and is not successfully charged for four consecutive Monthly Charge Dates, it will be deactivated as of 11:59:59 PM ET on your fourth consecutive unsuccessful Monthly Charge Date in accordance with Section 47.
Funds added to your account are non-refundable (including for suspended or deactivated accounts).
Any funds or Services added to your account on a promotional basis will be available to you for 30 calendar days from the date they are added to your account unless otherwise indicated to you. Any unused Services from a Plan, Add-On or Service Pass will not carry over beyond the applicable usage period. If you use an automatic Top-Up program to add funds to your account, there may be rare occasions where the activity is delayed by up to 48 hours depending on your bank or due to unforeseen circumstances. You cannot transfer any funds added into your account to another account. Visit luckymobile.ca/support for additional information.
34. How can I pay Lucky Mobile?
You must pay all Charges, plus applicable Fees and taxes. To add funds to your account, you must “Top-Up.”
You have a variety of options to Top-Up your account balance. You can participate in an Automatic Top-Up program with a pre-authorized credit or bank account, or do one-time Top-Ups with your assigned personal identification number. You can also Top-Up with your credit card or a prepaid card. Please visit luckymobile.ca/topup for additional information.
35. How do I correct a payment error?
To correct any payment made by you, including through electronic means (such as Internet or telephone banking or ATM machine), you must ask your financial institution to correct the error.
36. What if I have a concern about a Charge or Fee?
You have to contact us within 90 days of the date the Charges and Fees were incurred, otherwise we assume you accepted them. If you are entitled to a credit from Lucky Mobile, you confirm that you have made no separate claim for a refund for the same amount from a financial institution. Lucky Mobile will apply any credits due to you from Lucky Mobile against future Charges and Fees payable.
37. How do discounts or promotions work?
Lucky Mobile will apply any discounts, incentives or promotions to your account while: (a) Lucky Mobile maintains these discounts, incentives, or promotions; and (b) you meet the applicable eligibility requirements (including, maintaining your discounted Service without interruption). Lucky Mobile may change any discounts, incentives or promotions and their eligibility requirements at any time. Discounts, incentives and promotions may take more than one monthly charge cycle to be applied and will not be applied retroactively. Before making changes to your Lucky Mobile Services (including features), please review applicable restrictions and/or eligibility requirements, as certain changes may result in loss of, or changes to, discounts or promotions.
38. Why does Lucky Mobile charge a government 9-1-1 Fee?
Lucky Mobile does not provide emergency services, but does provide a 9-1-1 Service to assist with emergency call routing (as described in Section 8). Lucky Mobile is required to remit mandatory 9-1-1 Fees in accordance with applicable law to some provincial or territorial governments for their provision of emergency services (“Government 9-1-1 Fees”).

Changes to Your Agreement

45. Can I make changes to these Terms of Service?
You may not make any changes to these Terms of Service. However, depending on the Lucky Mobile Service you subscribe to and your Plan details, you may be able to add or remove certain Services, subject to Section 19.

Ending Your Agreement
46. How do I cancel my Services?
We’ll be sorry to see you go, but if you need to, contact Lucky Mobile to cancel some or all of your Lucky Mobile Services. Cancellation is effective the date Lucky Mobile receives your cancellation notice (or the date you request the cancellation to take effect).

Additionally, Lucky Mobile can, without notice and for cause, suspend, cancel or refuse to provide Services to you (including blocking numbers or area codes), or disable your Device.

Are there any rules regarding my use of Lucky Mobile Services, the Lucky Mobile networks or my Device?
Yes. Lucky Mobile encourages all of its Customers to use the Lucky Mobile Services responsibly. Abuse or misuse of Lucky Mobile Services, the Lucky Mobile networks, or Devices impacts all Customers and is something Lucky Mobile takes very seriously - and which could result in the termination of your Agreement with Lucky Mobile, or lead to criminal or civil charges. Lucky Mobile 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 Lucky Mobile has reasonable grounds to believe there is a breach of any of these provisions. For example, you are strictly prohibited from:
- using, enabling, facilitating, or permitting the use of any Lucky Mobile Service 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;
- enabling, facilitating or permitting the transmission of unsolicited messages such as spamming or phishing. Lucky Mobile may (i) filter any message determined by Lucky Mobile 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;
- 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;
- using or purchasing any Lucky Mobile Service for the purpose of reselling, remarketing, transferring without Lucky Mobile’s consent or receiving any fee or other benefit for the use of any Lucky Mobile Service. If you engage in any of these activities, you will pay in full all charges owed by you at the lesser of $30 per megabyte plus applicable taxes or such other amount which Lucky Mobile reasonably estimates as its liquidated damages. This fee is not a penalty. Your payment of these charges does not affect Lucky Mobile’s right to claim any additional amounts from you, including through court proceedings, that may reflect Lucky Mobile’s other losses as a result of your engaging in any of the prohibited activities described above;
- attempting to receive any Lucky Mobile Service without paying the applicable 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 Lucky Mobile or a Lucky Mobile company, attempting to bypass Lucky Mobile’s network, or rearranging, disconnecting, removing, repairing or otherwise interfering with Lucky Mobile Services, Lucky Mobile Equipment or Lucky Mobile’s facilities;
