    What I think they are trying to say is “free activation until the new iPhone. Then CHACHING $ $” lol

    Here's an idea, Rogers (and other applicable carriers): how about you charge me nothing for bringing you my business and signing an exclusive, multi-year contract? Pricks.

  • Anon

    Wow, thanks Rogers. Save $35, but sign up for a life sentence of a 3 year contract…..

  • Xaroc

    Because you want them more then they want you, and they know it lol.

    That's why we all complain, but still end up paying.

    Hey don't know if anyone has some insight on this but……I just called Rogers and the agent informed me that my 6GB data plan at $30.00 is going to expire next month. She then suggested I choose a different data plan though this one is not offered anymore. Has this happened to anyone else?

  • Ex

    It won't expire. The contract is just probably over. Sit tight.

  • MR

    I thought I had read about those data plans having expiry dates, even if the plans were provided for retention. But maybe Ex is right and I just misinterpreted.

  • Ex

    The contract expires, if there was a contract, but the SOC (or plan
    code) shouldn't be removed automatically from the account.

    my understanding is that after the contract expires it automatically defaults to a monthly basis at which time u can cancel when you like without penalty. I'l confirm with one of my buddies at Rogers HQ….

  • Ex

    That is correct. But you wouldn't want to cancel that plan.

    I am your buddy at Rogers HQ. 🙂

  • mackman6151

    haa the more HQ buddies I got, the merrier….you'd only cancel if Rogers decides to blow us away (and the heavy competition now) with a new and improved iPhone promo plan 😀 (wishful thinking I know :P)

  • Ex

    Like $5.00 for 5GB?…..per year!

    *wish*

  • Too bad this won't last till the iPhone 4 comes out.
