Rogers To Launch “Early Upgrade Fee”?

Share:

If this internal posting ends up going through, it seems that Rogers will be implementing changes to its hardware upgrade policy by allowing its customers to upgrade early with a fee. This change is similar to what Telus implemented a few months ago.

The current Rogers upgrade policy, sans any promotions, is 24 months for smartphone customers. In other words, iPhone customers with Rogers must wait 24 months before being able to upgrade their device at a discounted price.

If this new policy goes into effect, Rogers customers who have not met their eligibility date but wish to upgrade early can do so by paying a monthly fee multiplied by the number of months remaining in their contract.

    Since when have iPhone users EVER had to wait 24 mths with rogers? I’ve gotten every iPhone since the 3G on a Hardware upgrade…

  • Ex

    Which is a promo.
    If there was no promo, you’d be waiting 24 months.

    This is an excuse to not provide that same iPhone upgrade promo when the new ones come out. Cock knockers’

    If this is true, using telus’ model, I’d be paying almost $300 plus whatever the phone cost is for an iPhone 5. Might as well just buy it outright from apple.

  • ZEE

    SERIOUSLY????
    I THINK THEY ARE REALLY BUNCH OF AHOLES, EVERYDAY THINK OF WAYS TO IMPOSE SOME NEW FREAKING CHRGS. ARENT THEY ALREADY CHRGING US MORE THAN THE REST OF THE WORLD.

  • I got some wicked retention plans so I dont mind locking them in for years at a time.
    but im the kinda guy that gets bored of phones within 6 months or so and will buy a new one.
    rather then waiting 24 months to upgrade. Just sell your current phone while its still popular, take that money and buy a new phone full price no contact. In most cases you get it cheaper then what Rogers would offer you on a 3 year term. If you wait the 24 months on the same phone then yes your phone is now very cheap and discontinued and most of your money is lost.

    Is it going to be remaining months in the contract? or remaining months until the usual 2yr eligibility?

  • Ex

    I sounds like it will be until the customers eligibility date

  • Mike

    But there is always a promo.

  • Ex

    Maybe not anymore

  • Jdinner

    The 24 months is no longer. It is now 30 months.

    so, im with rogerss, and i got a 3 year plan and i tink this sucks because im 1 year into my plan and my phone is messed it doesnt recieve messages, and wont send messages sometimes, and also sometimes it wil shut down and wont turn back on when it is fully charged does this mean i am going to have to wait 2 more years to get a new phone when this phone sucks, i dont want to have to pay a fee i thinkit should be free because ill stick with that same plan just get a new phone because this one does not work very good what so ever…

  • george

  • Morgan
