Rogers/Fido iPhone 3GS Contract Free Pricing Revealed?

It seems as though every time there is a major iPhone announcement, Rogers is always the last to relay news to its customers. An example of this is when their own websites weren’t even updated the day of the iPhone 3GS announcement, leaving Canadian iPhone customers in a frenzy. Lucky for you, there’s iPhoneinCanada.ca with the latest news (even if it keeps changing randomly all the darn time!).

Rogers/Fido Contract-Free Pricing for the iPhone 3GS Revealed?

For iPhone 3G customers not eligible for HUP (Hardware UPgrade) pricing just yet, Rogers did announce that they would be introducing a contract-free price on the iPhone 3GS. It looks as though BGR’s ninja’s happened to have stumbled across some possible pricing taken from screens at Best Buy.

Here is what they came up with for the Rogers/Fido iPhone 3GS contract free pricing:

32GB iPhone 3GS – $799.99
16GB iPhone 3GS – $699.99

Now, looking at these prices your jaw must’ve dropped to the ground. But when you think about it in the bigger sense, if true they seem to be on par with contract free iPhone pricing. When you sign a 3 year contract, you get a subsidized price of $199/$299, which Rogers will “get back” over the duration of your 3 lovely years with them.

If you compare this contract free pricing to other similar smartphones, such as the Palm Pre or Blackberry Bold, you’re looking at similar prices in that realm. Heck, years ago insane people would pay over $1000 for a Sony Ericsson P800 (does anybody remember owning that brick?!), so to see the pricing of $699/$799 for the speedier iPhone 3GS doesn’t shock me that much.

Question of the Day: What’s your Opinion?

But the question of the day for everyone is: What’s the better scenario…re-sign for 3 years to get HUP pricing at $199/$299, or buy outright at $699/$799 and wait to see what GSM competitors will offer?

    I was thinking the pricing would be a little lower ($399 for the 16 GB). I was considering getting the 3G S since my 3G is dead, but now I am thinking maybe it’s best to just get a 3G.

  • To put it simply, wait for the next year. What’s going to happen next year when they announce the next generation iPhone? I’m more excited about the 3.0 update and the jailbreak for it.

    The 3GS is not all that much better than the 3G for me to want to spend 700-800 Dollars.

    I’ll pay the 8 hundo in a heartbeat. Need that 32 gigs. Allready have a buyer for my 3g, so I’ll really only pay half that price. I’ll do the same thing next year so I’m contract free in 2 years when Telus/Bell come online with GSM. Then I’ve got choices…

  • fuzzylogic

    If this is true, it would be cheaper to pay the 400 dollar fee to break my contract and resign for 3 years than to buy the new 3gs, as I just was forced to upgrade (2g died) two months ago and will not be eligible for HUP. If only I could have waited to months and used my old brick…

    That does seem lots for a 32GB but I guess there’s no contracts.
    Few questions…
    1. IF I buy out the iPhone 3GS, will Rogers still cover warranty for a month and I still have warranty through Apple for 1 year??? (Lets say there’s a few issues with the new iPhones 3GS, I just want to make sure I get some coverage/warranty for spending that much!)
    2. Is this buy out price only in specific areas/locations of Canada??? (Here in Alberta, I keep getting told no for a buy out price…)
    3. If I pay my $799 for a 32GB, can I still buy the 6GB data plan for $30?? (Yes I know its on a 3 year contract but thats ok, its like $100 or something to cancel if needed. I just think its a good deal!)
    4. If I buy out the iPhone 3GS, what plans can I choose???
    5. Can I buy the iPhone 3GS from Rogers online for buy out price? or where??
    6. Hmmmm, I have to think…. LOL

    THANKS to anyone that can help! 🙂

    I have a feeling the 3Gs will flop in comparison to the 3G sales for sure. Most users know its not enough for them to spend that kind of money to upgrade (woohoo a compass *rolls eyes*). I think Apple knows that anyway though..

    Since im trading my iphone 3g with somebody that signs a new three year contract and ill pay the price for the new 3g$. Im intersted to know the prices without a data plan. Can anybody confirm? I remember that last year they didnt really care, it was all the same.

    the 3gs really doesn’t seem that different from 3g, main differences come os3.0. spending 700-800 on it doesn’t really seem worth it, they made a couple little changes.

  • I dont think apple make the new Iphone 3Gs upgrade for who already buy the 3G. The new 3Gs is for who have waiting for the upgrade of the 3G before buy it. I think I will wait next year to upgrade my 3G.

  • SnowMan

    I was still hoping they would have a middle ground price in there somewhere. If you had bought the 3G last July then this July (after the 1 year mark) you could upgrade to the 3GS for $100 more than the “new customer” price but you would have to renew your contract for 3 years (extend another year). If that were the case I would consider upgrading but definitely won’t if I have to pay $799 for it. Not enough has changed to warrant that. I’d live with the 3G and OS3.0.

    How many potential iPhone 3GS buyers are there in Canada? I guess, the number won’t even close what we had when iPhone 3G introduced a year ago.

    This is what we all should do….wait little longer and pass on this “3GS” wave and see how Rogers change the prices when demands die out…

    Form my opinion, I strongly think these “3GS” don’t worth $700/$800. I’m not cheap but, I’ll consider only for $350 range with new 3 year contract (I’m only 10 months into my initial contact). Wait don’t waste your $$$$$$

  • KDub

    Another big question also remains. For those of us without a contract that want to renew with a 3GS but without the dataplan, when will we be able to order it? The GSR’s at Fido don’t have a date and are pushing nothing but dataplans on us! I just want a 3GS ASAP without the data…. at 199$ 🙂

  • farsyte

    The only features I want are…
    OLD screen (The Zune and Sony already have this, Apple…looking in your direction!)
    OLD might give the next iPhone a thinner profile and it should give it better battery life, so I’m sure next years iPhone will have OLD.

    Video Calling
    We all thought the iPhone 3G would have it…No, well then for sure the 3Gs will have it….No.
    I hope next year will be the year of the front facing camera.

    Stereo Speakers
    This prob won’t happen!

    I say keep your 3G for one more year.
    Next year you will get upgraded 3Gs features and what we hope is a much bigger leap forward into innovation and not playing catch up to what some phones have already offered for the past 4 years.

  • colin ward (wardo8551)

    last year, rogers changed their HUP policy about 1 month after the release so that anyone 3 months into their contract could upgrade at new customer pricing. Maybe wait it out a month or so…

    yea u can still get the 6GB plan on a 3 year. almost any voice plan you choose will only be available on min. 1 year contract.

    In my opinion, buying out an iphone is only worth it to put on an existing contract, and even then I’m not so sure. Any plan thats half decent is going to be available on a 3 year contract anyways.

  • Exactly. The end goal is to free myself from Rogers and have a choice when GSM competition is established! These contract prices are on par with initial first gen and 3G prices on Craigslist!

    With everyone being stuck waiting another year I would think Apple would be not so happy about this. I would think they want as many people as possible to have the new version of the iphone. Maybe a month after Rogers will change their policy like last year? Here’s hoping.

    If I buy it contract free does it come unlocked? I bought a Sony/Erickson phone once and paid the no contract price and then discovered it was locked and Rogers told me it would cost $200 to unlock it. I paid my local kiosk $20 to do it but was pretty mad at the time.

    Does Rogers/Fido charge the phone fee to the monthly bill or do customers have to pay for it in full up front? I have so many buyers lined up for my 3G but I don’t want to be without a phone if I have to wait for shipping. If I have no choice, I’ll need to $$ from the sale of the 3G to make up the difference. Also, can Fido dollars be applied to reduce the price as well?

  • Techbliss

    Hmm.. Isn’t signing up for a 3yr contract then canceling it and pay the ETF is less than $699/$799? I thought they can only charged a maximum of $400 for the ETF. But in any case, $699 and $799 is way too much. You can actually get a pretty decent laptop for that kind of money and a laptop can do much much more than the iPhone can. Yea, if you already have the 3G, keep it. Cuz my bet is Apple will release a new iPhone next probably with a new form factor, such as OLED screen, front-facing camera, etc etc. So until then, Rogers and Fido can suck it.

    Lawrence asked if buying without contract at that price would get us an unlocked phone. THAT is the question. Does anyone know the answer to that one?

    There has been rumors that AT&T is going to stop it’s customers from buying the new 3GS without signing up for a voice AND a data plan. Unlike the 3G when it was released last year, people were able to sign up for a lower monthly plan (sub $30 and pay the extra $50 for the phone) without taking up the $30/6GB data plan. I think Rogers/Fido will probably follow suit. And here’s some rumors (already!) about next year’s iPhone –

    http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/09/06/16/multi_core_arm_chips_bound_for_apples_next_gen_iphones.html

    And also, 3yr contract is a bitch. Rogers/Fido should follow AT&T and attach a 2 yr contract with the 3GS since AT&T is charging the same price as Rogers/Fido. AT&T 3G customers now only have to wait 6 months or so to be eligible to upgrade to the new 3GS where else we here in Canada will have to wait for at least another year which by that time, a new iPhone will be out by then.

    Contract-free will still be LOCKED to Rogers/Fido. Just called CSR and confirmed with them.

    But the unlock software for OS 3.0 is on its way already through the Dev Team who brought us yellowsnow. So i guess no worries there?

    BTW if you do try to cancel your contract and re-sign I’m pretty sure rogers has a policy that you can re-sign for three months, or something similar, to stop people from doing things like that..

  • Don’t forget the early data cancellation fee of $100, plus one month of your voice plan on top of that, plus taxes. Ouch!

  • cancelling and resigning is a headache, you’re better off paying the contract free price as that will be cheaper than cancelling.

    If I sell my 3G for what I’m asking for it by Friday, I’m going to get the 3G S at the non-contract price.

    16G 3G S $699
    – $300 SALE of 3G
    – $100 Fido Dollars
    _____________________
    16G 3G S $299

    Plus, I’ll still be able to get a subsidy on any future iPhone in 2010.

    my three year contract expired over a year ago now.. was going to do a HUP to the iphone 3gs (keeping my existing voice plan, no data). any ideas on what the subsidized price would be?

    I think Apple already has another iPhone in development but released the 3GS for us to be there test dummies. Next year or maybe sooner… will be a whole new model and upgrades. This may just be a test with the new FW 3.0 too and want to see what 3rd party developers can do with it! Then use it for there new model LOL Who knows…. 😛

    True true and the FW3.0 is a BIG upgrade, which I think is better then 3GS itself. But, double ram, faster processor, video graphics upgrade is a nice feature but still so much money for little upgrade if u already own a 3G. I’d say it benefits more for 2G owners.

    I also agree the 3GS will not be as big for a seller as when the iPhone 3G was introduced in Canada. Look how many people are selling there iPhones because they dont like it but yet they had to purchase it to try out. Since many people had the chance to try a iPhone out, this may effect how many buy the new models.

    That is true. So it pretty much equals up to the buy out price lol
    $299 for 32GB and $30 for data plan on 3 year. Early cancellation, 400 ETF + $100 for early cancel + $100 if u signed up for data plan + taxes = LOTS around same as buy out.

    I believe its called spinning… You cannot sign back up to rogers within 30 days or a months after wards if u sign up and cancel the next day. Something like that…

    Just so everyone knows, Future Shop will be carrying the iPhone for launch too. I really suggest going there, as they offer a product exchange warranty. Covers battery, 100% performance guarantee (If any one thing on the phone isn’t up to 100%, such as a stock app like safari repeatedly crashing -> brand new iPhone) and pretty much everything else aside from accidental or intentional damage. I have it, and I will be exchanging my 3G for a 16 or 32 (haven’t decided) Gs, just paying the difference and not extending my contract what-so-ever.

    If anyone is in Winnipeg and needs an iPhone, let me know:P

    With that kind of pricing for contract free locked roger/fido iphone, I would rather get one from Hong Kong so it’s fully unlocked.

    I just talked to Futureshop and there are selling the iPhone 3GS on friday and yes there already have them in stock.
    So far there is NO BUY OUT PRICE…? No where I know of in Alberta, anyone else know?
    Furtureshop only has the iPhone 3GS on a 3 year contract. I might just have to go with a contract…

    My first year of my contract is due in August, maybe I’ll convince Rogers to let me port to Fido sometime from now til August and leave with or without paying $100 switch fee. +$200/$300 Fido iPhone new 3Year contract, no monthly service fees, pay by the second. Sounds pretty tasty to me, how about you people who are nearing their 1 year and past the 6month mark?
