    I don’t know how they justify charging an activation fee to begin with. Not because it’s a cruel additional fee, but because this one cruel fee puts into jeopardy literally years’ worth of overcharging and gouging. Why do anything at all to deter a potential victim, I mean customer, from locking into a contract? I wouldn’t be surprised to see these fees vanish entirely. It won’t benefit the consumer, they’ll just wait until you’ve signed on the dotted line before they do all of their price gouging and convenient over-billing that most people don’t notice.

    I was gonna sign up no contract, but it’s more to sign up it’s like your punished for not being locked in for three years.

  • Thats great for NEW USERS .. what about all the Existing Customers ,, I guess we keep getting to pay each month … super slow service lately in Hamilton .. not a happy camper ..

  • Yeah, existing users have already paid the activation fee. Maybe we can ask
    for a refund? 😉

  • apparently i called before and asked about the activation fee and the rogers rep told me that its not really for activation !! when i got my iphone4 .. they said it was $35 shipping for the iphone 4….
