Rogers: No Activation Fee Until August 2 2010, iPhone Not Eligible?

Share:

Effective July 28 2010, Rogers has extended their activation fee waiver promotion and are continuing to waive the $35 activation fee that customers are usually charged when starting up a new account.

There is also an odd part to this promotion. The promotion is not being extended to Voice & Data plans, which is typically what the iPhone takes (Rogers gouging the customer again?).

Eligibility & Restrictions

The offer is applicable to new 3-year term activations on the following rate plans:

  • Unlimited Plans (All “choice of feature” plans: Unlimited Network Calling, MY5, Double Your Minutes, Messages, Unlimited Social Networking)
  • Business Voice card plans ($45 plus)
  • Select Business plans (Canadian One Rate, North America One Rate)
  • Employee Purchase Plans (EPP)
  • Student Plans

This offer is not available on:

  • Consumer Voice & Data bundle plans (Couples & Family Voice & Data, iPhone Voice & Data, Business Voice & Data)
  • Mobile Broadband Data plans
  • Embedded Laptop plans
  • Corporate plans
  • Business Pricing Renewal (BPR) price plans

A $35 bill credit for 100% of the activation fee will appear on the customer’s first invoice.

    Guys,

    I have found out something pretty interesting. It seems that rogers is renewing their website for the iphone 4. Go to rogers.com and you’ll see that the website is screwed up and if you put your mouse over the wireless tab you get some coe, so I am assuming that rogers is updating the iphone page to have the upgrade eligibility tool and plans. Check it out:

  • Renewal contracts too?

  • Frenk

    The Canadian cellphone companies need a new face to give them some competition, to drive prices down and features up. They've had it their own way for too long.

    For example, I can't believe that they charge for incoming calls — I've never understood that one. In the UK you don't do that.

  • Frenk

    ummm Bond….I KNOW that the iPhone4 is already in Canada. Not released yet, but they're here, so there's no reason to withold release. That being said, it is strange that there's so much secrecy about it all, with only 2 days to go and still nothing concrete being announced.

  • Heep74

    Yeah, it's delayed till August. Don't bother showing up. The line up on July 30 will be for something else that's not important.

  • N_Silvia06

    what if I get a student plan with data? ($50 as long as i remember)

  • vigu360

    @ iPhone<3 Heep74 was just trying to get one less person on the line that day so that you can grab it lol 🙂

  • asdmd

    Morning all, I think this question has been asked, but do you have to get a data plan if you buy an iphone?

  •  Xaroc

    Well yeah. Rogers isn't going to pass up the chance to make people line up to give them extra money.

  • Trini

    Fido had a plan which included unlimited incoming calls… at one time, but revoked it off their plans. For those that still have that *aka moi* it saves alot of air time usage when people call me from their landlines/ use VOIP.

  • Shaw Guy

    Honestly, I cant wait until Shaw gets into the Canadian cell market…(yes i know this will happen 100% – I'm an employee, and half my team transferred to the cellular wireless division) Maybe we can get some real competition instead of this “lesser of three evils” strategy.

  • Babyrocky1

    Anyone notice an issue with the rogers website it's not opening in safari or firefox…. perhaps they are finnaly updating the page to show prices??? Also earlier i was on my account page and it said I didnt have a wireless account set up for online but I do, could be just a glich or maybe an update 🙂

  • Josh

    this is what im planning on doing 😉

  • Whiterhino14

    Iphone users in the US got the info a week before launch day so they could decide what they wanted to do. Looks like we will have to wait till 8:00 am friday morning.
    This is complete and utter crap!!! If i didn't want one so bad i would boycott the who effing thing.

  •  Xaroc

    Boycott it over tiny issues? You need to adopt the Canadian way of
    living and just chill ^_~ if not we might see you standing in line at
    6am with the others waiting for the shrink to open his doors lol.

  • Luca

    Not all Canadian companies charge for incoming calls mine doesn't i have unlimited incoming calls

  • I find it laughable to begin with that cellphone companies have the balls to charge you to BECOME one of their customers.

    If other businesses tried that they'd be in bankruptcy court in no time.

  • Turtle

    that's exactly what he's talking about. I'm originally from Venezuela, and no company charges for incoming calls. it is simply unheard of. there's no “add unlimited incoming” it is just something we are not charged for.

  • Turtle

    has there ever been an activation charge for renewal and/or upgrade? i don't seem to remember any

  • Tpelletman

    i work for bell in halifax, and our stores will have the 4…..they are on hand now……i've seen the boxes myself

  • hub2

    Apparently Canada, USA and one other country are the only ones in the world where charging for incoming calls is standard practice.

  •  Xaroc

    Why doesn't the US fight that kind of terror? Lol bunch of soldiers
    busting in to your local Rogers “Hey!…. Stop it…” lol

  • Makejerseytrade Com

    is their a way to purchase this bundle deal without paying credit card on Rogers site? even Paypal or something??
