An Ontario court has certified a class action lawsuit against Bell Mobility alleging that expiry dates on its pre-paid wireless services should not be allowed.

The suit alleges pre-paid wireless services should be treated like gift cards and not have an expiry date.

The decision by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice allows the case, which has not been proven in court, to proceed as a class action.

The suit was filed on behalf of anyone in Ontario who have bought pre-paid wireless services since May 2010 from Bell Mobility, Virgin Mobile or Solo Mobile – all brands of Bell Canada.

Bell said earlier this year that it believed the case was without merit and it would defend against it.
