Rogers Announces 6GB for $30 iPhone 3G Data Plan!

**Pre-order your iPhone 3G invisibleSHIELD and get 20% off your order, plus FREE shipping! Limited time offer, order today!**

**Edit: This promotion is also available from Fido too!**

Breaking news this morning folks! Looks like Rogers has caved to consumer pressure (just after I posted about no unlimited data) and today they have announced a brand new data plan for a limited time. iPhone users who sign up between July 11th to the end of August will be able to get a 6GB for $30 data plan!

Now, if you compare this to the $30 for 300MB data plan they have now, and the original $60 for 400MB voice/data plan, it’s definitely a step in the right direction.

Rogers iPhone 3G Launch Day Festivities Plus 8:00am Opening at Rogers Plus

This is straight from the horse’s mouth: Starting at 8:00 am July 11, Canadians will be able to purchase the new iPhone 3G at special launch day events to be held at six Rogers Plus stores across the country.

These are the Rogers Plus locations you need to start lining up at if you want your hands on the iPhone 3G FIRST! Too bad there aren’t more Rogers Plus locations! You’re hooped if you aren’t in one of the following six cities…

The following Rogers Plus stores in these cities will open their doors at 8:00 a.m. (all times local) on Friday, July 11 for advance purchases of the Apple iPhone 3G:
Toronto: 112-10 Dundas Street East
Montreal: 1015 rue St. Catherine Ouest
Ottawa: 690 Bank Street
Halifax: Unit 265, 7001 Mumford Road
Calgary: 5244 Falsbridge Gate, NE
Vancouver: 2097 West Broadway

Rogers Plus locations will also some special events for customers waiting in line, such as FREE breakfast (yay) and a chance to win prizes. Here is a summary of what you need to know if you’re planning on buying iPhone 3G from Rogers.

For Fido customers, the same activities are happening at 8:00am, but only at the flagship store in Montreal.

Where Can I buy the iPhone 3G?
– Retail locations: Rogers Plus, Rogers Video, Rogers Wireless, WirelessWave, TBooth and Wireless etc
– Online via the Rogers website
– Limit of 2 iPhones per person

What Are my Options with Voice Plans?
– choose from Rogers’ existing voice and smartphone data plans and additional features
OR
– choose from Rogers iPhone 3G bundled plans
– existing customers can keep their current voice plan–just select a separate data plan
– Upgrading? Check your upgrade availability (HUP: Hardware Upgrade Package) and then choose a plan

Well, is it possible to say Canadian consumers have a mini victory here, or not? If you compare it to the other Rogers data plans for the price, it’s a steal. However, it’s still not unlimited but it’s a pretty good start. It looks like big media coverage and the RuinediPhone.com petition hoopla might have made a difference.

Bait and Switch Possibility?

Although Rogers has bowed to consumer pressure, one might consider they had this plan in the bag all along? How did Rogers go from $30 for 300MB to $30 for 6GB? That’s a massive leap forward. Could it be that we have fallen for the classic “bait and switch”? This is just a thought. Either way, this is great news for Canadian iPhone 3G users! Liz Hamilton had some new words for Canadians:

“We listened to our customers, everybody from those who are very tech savvy to those who just knew they wanted this device and were really enthusiastic and didn’t know how they were going to use the data but knew it was a data device,”

iPhoneinCanada.ca and RuinediPhone.com on Global National

In case you missed it, Global National had a segment on the price of new text messages and the iPhone hoopla. Enjoy (excuse the poor quality, recorded with a digicam):

Has this new plan changed your mind about buying an iPhone 3G?

    I’ve just spent 10 minutes on Rogers site and I can’t locate this new $30 for 6GB plan anywhere – perhaps it’s well hidden ??

    The Rogers site is so confusing it’s infuriating.

    WTF people. There was 3 major issues with Rogers plans.

    1. 3 year contract
    2. capped data plans
    3. # of voice minutes

    ALL THESE POINTS ARE STILL TRUE.

    WE SHOULD BE MAD AS EVER ABOUT BEING CONTINUALLY MANIPULATED INTO THINKING BEING FUCKED IN THE ASS IS GOOD FOR US.

    The plans Rogers is offering SUCK. Just because the headline of the article states that they’ve ‘caved’ doesn’t make it so. They haven’t and won’t until they realize the iPhone in canada is a FLOP.

    Get real people. Thinking we’ve ‘won’ only to receive $30 a month for capped bandwidth is sad.

    I think you might have misread the press release.

    I believe many more locations will be selling the iPhone, though only the 6 stores mentioned will have special events.

    That was my understanding the first time I read it. Was I wrong?

    @Travis

    1. 3 year contract – You expected this to change? You’re obviously not a current Rogers customer. All their plans are 3 year. Deal with it pal!

    2. Capped data plans – 6gb is great for $30. Maybe you don’t understand how much that is.

    3. Voice minutes – Asking too much IMO.

    This is what I would have expected if Rogers did the right thing when they first released the pricing. I think it’s a great step forward.

    Hi John,

    Glad to hear you like the offer.

    The offer is for a limited time, but the other pricing will remain
    (iPhone Bundled Plans or any Rogers voice plan + data plan). It is good
    for the 3 year term of the contract. Standard policies apply when the
    term is over, so it will be dependent on your needs and the pricing we
    would have in place at that time.

    Cheers!

    I phoned Rogers because a $30 nearly unlimited Data plan is too good to pass up and I wanted to know where Visual Voicemail sat in relation. Supposedly there is no confirmation that Visual Voicemail will be available on anything outside those original “high-value” $60 – $115 iPhone plans. So if you do a Voice and Data, any essentials with “Enhanced” Voicemail or “Enhanced” Voicemail on it’s own does not constitute automatic Visual Voicemail. I was told that this could all change before launch as no official pricing guide has been passed around… Not yet?! It’s less than 2 days to go!

    If Visual Voicemail ends up being a $7 – $15 separate charge, that would be a deal breaker.

    PS. Unless you are an absolute data whore and do nothing all day but sit on your iphone surfing the net downloading porn in the middle of nowhere, there is no way you should EVER go over 6GB in 1 month. It might aswell be unlimited.

    As far as the phone minutes go, add on a MY5 package for $10 bucks and its all good.

    If what Tim says is true:
    200min(+MY5),6GB, 5pm evenings, 125 texts, visual voicemail for $100/mo after tax and tip(SAF). Not bad. Better then any Blackberry plan I’d say. I think I’m sold.

    …..Users will also be able to upgrade to the iPhone 3G, according to the company, and should be purchasable online. However, Visual Voicemail is considered separate from the data plan and will cost an additional $8 per month, as will text messages. Subscribers can still order these individually or as part of value packs……

    Hi Evan… Here’s the link where I read that. I’m working on a solid confirmation this afternoon.

    for an extra $10 bucks you can add MY5 to any voiceplan which allows unlimted calling AND text to any 5 numbers you choose. They can be any local number with the exception of your own number (for voicemail although with visual voicemail you should never have to call yourself). Having my5 brought my daytime minutes down from 500+min/mo to using less then 150min/mo so its worth it IMO. Rogers told me you can add MY5 to the iphone package or use it as your baseline voice package instead.

    Visual Voicemail better be included.

    “Get real people. Thinking we’ve ‘won’ only to receive $30 a month for capped bandwidth is sad.”

    Apparently AT&T have a “soft” cap of 5GB per month. If you go over it too often they can revoke your data access.

    I don’t know what you can do to exceed 6GB of data per month of a wireless device anyway…

    @Evan – Thanks for the information…

    Does someone knows if the Visual Voicemail includes the standard voicemail, or if we have to take normal voicemail (±7$ – used with any cellphone) and ADD the Visual voicemail option (8$ – works only with the iPhone)? I think that if I pay 8$ for visual voicemail, it includes the basic voicemail feature (so I would be able to remove this option from my actual voice plan), but with Rogers, I would not be surprised if they ask people to take both options…

    Thanks.

    After you posted their contact info, I emailed them all and I’m sure I wasn’t the only one. They’ve been seeing a lot of pressure they eventually *tried* to make it look like they’re doing something reasonable. It’s decent, for sure, but doesn’t apply for existing iPhone holders.

    That’s ok though, I have a decent plan as it is, things are starting to be grandfathered, so I’m just gonna stick with what I have not use any data. Until I see something reasonable along the lines of “add this good chunk of data to your plan for this small amount of money” I won’t be using their network for data—wifi only.

    hey gary, a little off topic, do you think when you know the answer you can post something like a sort of “how to upgrade to software 2.0 for dummies (on an unlocked iPhone)”? i want the 2.0, it looks great, but i’m at 1.1.3 and have never upgraded so i haven’t the slightest clue how… so that would rock.

  • Jason

    Now, the only question I have: Will there be a “take home” (no contract) price? like AT&T is apparently doing in the States, and if so, will I still be able to get the 6 GB for $30 deal? Either way, I might actually buy though, might take me a while, but hopefully before the end of August, even if I have to get a contract.

    I talked to two different rogers customer service reps…and they both told me I would be fine.

    But my question is…being on a family plan, that with my number is less than $30 a month, will I be able to add the 6GB for $30 plan?

    One rep said it wouldnt be a problem, but another one who sounded less sure of herself said that I couldnt. And then told me I could howeve upgrade to an iPhone “value” plan, and then later opt out of the family plan, keep my number, change to a cheaper voice plan and add the data plan…which just sounded complicated.

    So…if my family plan < $30 a month plan isnt valid for this promotion…what I guess I am asking is, is this a promotion to ANYONE who buys an iPhone from July 11th to July 31st? or only existing Rogers customers?

    Ps…anyone know when the next shipment is coming to canada after the 11th? will it be before the 31st? both Roger’s reps told me that every 2nd call is people asking about the iPhone. I plan to go early…but not before the suns up.

    To echo Tuna’s comment, does anyone have any thoughts on whether this 6GB/$30 offer will be extended beyond August? Is this the sort of thing that they’ll keep “extending”, or will new purchasers really be expected to pay $30 for 300MB, or thereabouts? Reason I ask, I’m waiting for my current Bell contract to expire before switching.

    Hi Friends, Regarding Visual voice mail, rogers have plan for $15 that gives you call display, visual voice mail and 2500 txt msg, i think that is a kick ass price. Regardign contract, i think you have been using GSM for years then why not contract and a discounted price for phone, u can change ur voice plan as many time u can in those three years and every year u r eligible for hardware upgrade. If rogers make mistake bill, call them they will go anywhere to help u out. i called Bell and they were not able to waive my moving charge of $55 even i threatned to cance and with rogers u dont pay for after sale service adn still complain. U cannot match prices with US, US has large number of customer base and in canada how many people we are may be 30-40 million.

    I just got my iPhone from Rogers, and am paying 65 dollars a month. 30 for the special 6 Gig data package, and 35 for the voice plan. The voice plan is the small business special which gives you evenings and weekends, 400 daytime minutes, and 100 long distance minutes anywhere in Canada. I think until the new carriers start showing up this is the best we are going to do.

    Yes you can use wifi for email, you just set up your account on the iphone, its in your settings.
    if you wifi at your place you will be paying for the internet there, it does not affect your phone’s data plan.
    As for 6 gb, i have it also, and i haven’t even been able to use half of it, and that included streaming full tv episodes to my phone over 3G, maybe once there is a tethering program out there that actually works, ill be able to use more of it.

    To answer tghe questions above
    1. How does the maps work? On 3G? or wifi? I am turnin off my 3G n usin wifi al i can to ensure i don’t get fucked..If you turn off 3G, then you dont have to worry, your phone will only get data when you have wifi
    2. wat abt the weather, mail, safari, stocks,etc? do they run on 3G as well? do they automatically switch to wifi wen they see a reliable network? is there any place i can change these settings? once 3G is off, those thing will not work, until you have wifi, all thing have access the net will use wifi when the phone is connected, you can set your phone to notify you when there is a wireless network. All of the setting are found in ‘Settings”
    3. r voicemail mins taken off my regular mins? VM will use your day time minutes, you can call it from a land line, usually call your cell then hit #, visual VM will only work with 3G
    4. wat ab the itunes n app store? i haven’t tried downloading apps with out 3G im thinking they will not work, but you can use wifi. In the app store anything over 10 mb it will not let me download with out wifi anyways. Same fore the music store, i can view, but can not download till i have connected to a wireless network.
