Lucky Mobile is a Canadian mobile flanker brand established by BCE Inc., the parent company of Bell Mobility, in December 2017.[1] The company operates as a mobile virtual network operator offering pre-paid calling, texting, and "3G-like" throttled speed data running on Bell Mobility's 4G network with pre-paid plans in select Canadian markets.[2]


After being announced on December 1, 2017, Lucky Mobile launched on December 4,[3] at launch, the network is available for users in 17 metro areas in Canada. The launch was viewed as a way for BCE to compete with the discount mobile brands Chatr and Public Mobile operated by its competitors Rogers Communications and Telus, respectively.[4] Like Chatr but unlike Public Mobile, Lucky Mobile offers a limited selection of low end smartphones for sale outright.[2]


Lucky Mobile carries three budget Android smartphones and one flip phone.[5]

Retail presence[edit]

Lucky Mobile SIM cards are sold in Walmart, Glentel and The Source locations.[2] In addition, customers can also order these by phone or on the company's website, at launch, the company does not operate any stand-alone locations.
