Rogers Updates My Account iPhone App With Services Tab

Share:

This week, Rogers has updated their free “My Account” iPhone application to include a new Services tab.

The “My Account” app allows Rogers customers to view the amount of minutes, data and messages that they have used so far in the month, the amount of remaining usage for the month and how many minutes/data/messages their plan includes per month.

The app further allows users to view the amount of their current and last month invoice and also pay for the current invoice via credit card.

The app has now been updated to include a new “Services” tab that currently only features Rogers’ new “Extreme Text Messaging“. At this time, users can manage the following settings with regards to “Extreme Text Messaging”:

  • Forward
  • Auto Reply
  • Distribution Lists
  • Copy
  • Personal Signature
  • Text Blocker

The new Services tab will also presumably include other services that customers are paying for such as Voicemail, Caller Display, Long Distance packages and Text Messaging packages.

These services are likely to be managed via the iPhone app so that users can take off and add new or existing services to their Rogers account. This access is similar to what Rogers customers have when accessing their account via Rogers.com.

  • I wish they would update the app to be a native iPhone app, rather than a strange web app made to look native. The constant loading and strange scrolling is crazy.

  • Will this update also be available for fido?

  • Most likely.

    can you use it on WiFi now? or if you don't have a data plan? I find it quite ridiculous that you cant…

  • It uses the SIM card and data connection to authenticate you.

    I hope it will let you change your MY5 via the app. I know you can go to Rogers.com on your phone to change it, but via the app would be so much quicker.

    it should be able to use just your SIM card and have no need to use the data connection. I would say that the majority of iPhone users in Canada don't have a data plan, or at least the majority of the ones I know…

    Really, most of the people you know don't have a data plan? I don't know to many people who don't!

  • DaMan05

    lol well I'm brown and cheap, and the people I know are brown and cheap 😛
    most people actually don't know that you can pay $100 more for the data cancellation and get an iPhone without a data plan. Everyone just listens to the reps that say that you must have a data plan.

    it's true. majority of iPhone users in canada do not have data plans. especially after the majority of iPhone users only got their devieces after the $99 special (plus $50 for an under $35 plan)….i find it rediculous that you can't log into this app via your MyRogers account which alot of people have set up….that way you'd be able to check out all the phones you're authorized to check. on the account.
