Designing a more private wireless service

At dotmobile, we are designing our services in a manner that respects and protects your personal information. Most wireless service providers don’t openly talk about what happens with your personal information, and we want to change that. In this post, we are providing an overview of our design of privacy. Let us know if we’re on the right track in comments or by emailing us at privacy@dotmobile.app. We look forward to reading your thoughts.

Build it! App Navigation

We invited our founding members to participate in a usability study, sharing early versions of the bottom navigation icons for our app.  We’ve compiled the results and are ready to share them, as well as revealing what the icons actually mean!

We welcome Canadian brands Axessorize and Mellow to our upcoming Marketplace

The first two brands to be featured in our marketplace are based in Montreal. Axessorize continues to establish its reputation as a significant player in the accessories market, having recently executed an accessory promotion with LG in addition to supporting the latest flagship phone launches.

Building a Telco with Flutter

We’re building a telco that also happens to be an app, or, we're building an app that also happens to be a telco. Whichever way you look at it, everything you expect from your wireless provider needs to be inside our app. It's more than traditional telco self-care, it needs to do more than display usage, push bill notifications, and upsell shiny new phones.  Our app needs to do it all. 

Fix it! - No service at the Raptors parade?

Were you affected by the wireless problems during the Raptor's victory parade? Even if you weren't able to be there (like me), there's a good chance you've encountered the same problem: lots of bars of signal on your phone but nothing works. How can we improve this experience?

A big week for wireless customers in Canada

Everyone has an opinion about wireless in Canada, and up until now the regulator only hears the opinions of the big telecoms. We're one of the companies who want to change that, to bring affordable and awesome wireless service to Canada - and we've just taken another step towards that goal.

Build it! Improved Security for Two-factor Authentication Over SMS

Is your wireless phone number secure? Wireless service providers play a role in preventing SIM hijacking and unauthorized port-outs.

Build it! Data Throttling Detection

The big telecoms finally have unlimited plans, a welcome relief from typically punitive overages. Despite what they want you to believe, however, there is nothing innovative about their approach. Freedom Mobile has been doing unlimited data for years, starting all the way back to when they were still called WIND; so for the better part of a decade, many Canadians have had their data throttled.

Your story could help make wireless more affordable and awesome in Canada

The other day my girlfriend was venting about her wireless provider. They were charging overages, as usual, but this month they also cut off her data. “I should be able to control my plan and just pay for data when I need it,” she told me. I proudly responded that dotmobile's building exactly what she needs, but to my surprise, she looked surprised.

This is why you shouldn’t upgrade your phone

It’s smartphone-release season again, but not everyone is looking to upgrade to the latest and greatest phone, even if a stovetop is included. Unfortunately, too few also take the next steps that can truly save money.
