Fido/Rogers Employee Purchase Plan: iPhone 3G Time?

Lots of people out there are still debating about whether or not they want the new iPhone 3G. Well, Fido users seem to have all the fun with their early evening plans versus Rogers. Currently, the hottest “plan” right now is the Fido Employee Purchase Plan (EPP) at $17.50/month (it’s also being offered by Rogers, but evenings start at 6pm; some folks have even been able to add $2 for 5pm early evenings on Rogers).

What do you get for $17.50/month from the Fido EEP?
– Unlimited evenings and weekends from 5pm
– Unlimited incoming text messages
– 200 weekday minutes; per second billing
– 3 year contract

Manitoba and Saskatchewan Fido customers get an even better deal for $20/month:
– Unlimited evenings and weekends from 5pm
– Unlimited Fido to Fido/Rogers to Rogers (or network calling)
– Unlimited incoming text messages
– 250 weekday minutes; per second billing
– 2-3 year contract

If you get the Fido EPP at $17.50/month on a new 3 year contract, you are eligible to purchase an iPhone 3G for $249. If you’re on an existing plan, you can just switch to the $17.50 without re-signing for 3 years.

What does it take to be eligible for the EPP? Become part of any organization such as Air Miles, Esso Extra, Costco…and you can join. Some users have been able to add the plan without submitting any membership info to CSR’s.

Why Get the EPP Plan?

The EPP plan is good for those people who don’t care for voicemail, caller ID, and texting. It’s essentially your no frills monthly phone plan. Some people have been signing onto the plan, buying the iPhone 3G for $249 (for voice plans less than $30/month, an extra $50 is tacked onto $199, making it $249), and flipping it for savings! To quote Rehan from RFD:

I signed my wife up for the $17.50 “killer plan” on Fido today (new account), and got the iPhone 8GB with it. If she just uses her old Fido phone, we can sell the iPhone for about $500…that’s $220 more than the $249+tax cost, so that $220 is like a $6/month saving spread out over the life of the 36 year contract. If you don’t care about getting a new phone, $11.50/month + SAF + 911 + tax is a pretty good deal.

EPP + iPhone 3G Possibilities?

What about those that want to use their iPhone 3G? Another possibility is getting the $17.50 EPP and coupling it with the extended 6GB/$30 data plan. Add in the $15 value pack like Ruffdeezy did and you will have yourself a decent iPhone 3G monthly plan. Don’t want data? Call in and get Rogers/Fido to block data on your account to avoid incurring data charges (keep calling in until you get a CSR that will block it for you).

One of the big advantages of choosing Fido over Rogers is billing by the second. That will save you big time on your daytime minutes usage. Take in the early evenings at 5pm, plus Fido dollars that you can use towards the future purchase of hardware, and you have a pretty good no frills monthly plan! The EPP ends October 31st, so if you are looking for a cheap, basic monthly plan, better act now!

Has anyone out there made the switch to the EPP, or is thinking about it?

    When I stopped in last friday to inquire about the ROGERS EPP plan the rep at the booth said that you had to WORK for the companies that were in the list (~500) no just be a member of the organization. He said that in the past they have opened up the door to others using that plan as long as they had a membership, but right now it was just for employees.

    I would like to know if Rogers has better coverage than Fido? I’ve heard Fido is good for the cities but that’s about it? I spend a good portion of my time outside of the city (Victoria) so I’m just wondering if I should go with Fido or stick with Rogers.

    My 3 years contract just started when the iPhone came out in Canada – so very recent. That’s when I signed up for a 3 years plan, so they basically changed my existing voice plan to this new one. It was a 20 dollar plan, with 200 daytime, 1000 weekend/weeknights. Now, I get so much more and save 2.50. Not bad. I also have a $9 value plan that adds voice mail and call display which is separate from the 3 year contract thing.

    I added the plan to my rogers account (for 2 phones) last week. Rogers actually beat the plan that rogers had by adding more stuff. Did have to pay the $2 for the 5pm since I wanted it but really worth it. No you don’t have to be a member..

    Hey folks…

    Remember..whenever you call you will get a different CSR and that person will tell you something different. I’ve had people tell me so many different things. You have to INSIST otherwise speak to a manager. Also remember…you have to speak with customer relations. The first level folks that answer the phones can’t do anything for you. I know from experience. 🙂

    I managed to get the unlimited incoming local calls ($15 value) added. Similar to Hagow’s post – they credit you. I’m not sure if they take into consideration how long you have been a customer of theirs or not or if there are any other factors that they look at. I think it’s easier to negotiate when you are an existing customer who is paying month to month rather then a customer who is locked in already…although there are several people who were able to get the plan when being locked in already.

    You can always ask them to ‘credit’ your account for a particular item. In many cases, they aren’t able to change your plan but credit you so it like you are getting that particular option for free. They can’t credit you the $2 for the 5pm early option since the min credit starts at $5.

    Take this plan, won’t last long 🙂 With a $30 data plan I’m paying about $50 ) – $20 for voice and $30 for data) + SAF + tax – 15% discount bundle. Not too bad if you ask me. Oh ..one other thing you should remember that if you ask for the local incoming to be included then be aware that they may try to make you lock in for 3 years for that option. I ordered the phone at the same time so I didn’t care about that.

I’m not sure if they take into consideration how long you have been a customer of theirs or not or if there are any other factors that they look at. I think it’s easier to negotiate when you are an existing customer who is paying month to month rather then a customer who is locked in already…although there are several people who were able to get the plan when being locked in already.

    You can always ask them to ‘credit’ your account for a particular item. In many cases, they aren’t able to change your plan but credit you so it like you are getting that particular option for free. They can’t credit you the $2 for the 5pm early option since the min credit starts at $5.

    Take this plan, won’t last long 🙂 With a $30 data plan I’m paying about $50 ) – $20 for voice and $30 for data) + SAF + tax – 15% discount bundle. Not too bad if you ask me. Oh ..one other thing you should remember that if you ask for the local incoming to be included then be aware that they may try to make you lock in for 3 years for that option. I ordered the phone at the same time so I didn’t care about that.

    Hey folks…

    Remember..whenever you call you will get a different CSR and that person will tell you something different. I’ve had people tell me so many different things. You have to INSIST otherwise speak to a manager. Also remember…you have to speak with customer relations. The first level folks that answer the phones can’t do anything for you. I know from experience. 🙂

    They all tell me something different that it annoys me. Downtown Rogers store says call customer service because it’s only for new subscribers and they could probably do it for me. I wait 30 mins on hold calling customer service they say that Rogers store is lying to me and I have to get em to do it for me. So wtf is going on? I think I will just get my mom to phone the damn Chinese line and have her bitch at em for me instead.

    This is just annoying, Rogers store in downtown Calgary telling me to call Rogers to get the plan, as it’s only for new subscribers. I call Rogers they tell me to go to a Rogers store and do it.. Wtf seriously I had the exact same problem getting my iphone without a data plan. I think I will just call the Chinese Rogers line when they are open and hope that the Chinese actually know wtf their talking about unlike the normal CSR.

    Here is the trick…

    DON’T CALL IN ABOUT THE PLAN!!!

    Call in COMPLAINING about your existing plan or something else…
    Then ask then what can you do for me because this is just fraustrating. Tell them that your along time customer and your friends is not as long and he was able to get some plan that is like $17.50…and go from there.

    This $17.50 doesn’t include Fido to Fido in BC, am I correct? Can you add on the $10 fido to fido to the EPP? I guess that’d be $17.50+$10+$30(unlim. data)+$8(VM)=$65 not including the system access fee. Is that a good deal or not?

    I am no longer on a fido contract, just pay month-to-month. I called to cancel my account, but they gave me an offer that is waiting for me in my file. I am just wondering, to claim this offer, do I have to sign a 3 year agreement? I thought I wanted the Iphone but then realized how ridiculous a 3 year agreement is. I’d rather use my Fido dollars to pay $100 for a phone, without a contract, and pick up my offer waiting in my file. Thoughts?

    All I did was call in and ask to speak with someone from customer relations. I then explained to customer relations that I had been with Rogers for several years in the past, was away for a bit, and have now just started a new contract ($17.50) with them. I also explained that most of my friends and family were on Fido/Rogers and it would be really helpful if I could have network calling added to my line. I then pointed out that I have children, and to keep in contact, they might call so often that I was afraid of using up all my daytime minutes down the road….voila, unlimited incoming added! I had an interest for the Samsung Blackjack, so they are now sending me one (free of charge) and have set up another account (identical as mine) for my 13 year old son…needless to say, he’s looking forward for UPS to come sometime today with his Blackjack.
