Update: April Voice and Data plans for iPhone 3G

Share:

Below you find the latest Rogers Wireless plans for iPhone 3G for April 2009. The information below will not include the specifically labeled “iPhone 3G plans” from Rogers that run $60 and $75 per month because when compared to the other plans, they do not offer a good enough value.

Please note that these plans will be reflective of Rogers Wireless and there are five sections below detailing individual regions (Prices vary between regions):

1.) BC/ALBERTA REGION

2.) MIDWEST REGION

3.) ONTARIO REGION

4.) QUEBEC REGION

5.) ATLANTIC REGION

Please note, as of April 7, 2009, all new acquisitions on a 3 year contract will only receive one (1) month of unlimited local minutes (“Freedom of Speech”) as opposed to 3 months as it has been in the past. If you are getting a data plan on a 3 year term as well, you still receive 3 months unlimited data usage.

Also note, as of April 16, 2009, the $17.50 plan will be increasing in price to $20.00. All of the other advertised features within this plan will be staying the same.

People who want iPhone 3G without data

If you are one of the people that want an iPhone 3G without data and prefer to use the Wi-Fi feature, then really any voice plan is fine for you. Essentially you will want a plan that will give you enough minutes so you do not end up paying overage fees. Currently there is a very good plan called the “Employee Purchase Plan”. The plan is $17.50 per month and includes the following:

200 Daytime Minutes, Unlimited Evenings & Weekends at 6PM.

In terms of minutes and value, this is the best plan however if you need more minutes, then obviously you should choose a higher voice plan.

In any case, the iPhone 3G from Rogers will run you $249 (8GB) and $349 (16GB) under this plan. (Rogers policy is in order to get the iPhone 3G for $199 (8GB) or $299 (16GB), your VOICE plan must be $30.01 or higher before all add-ons, fees, and taxes).

People who want iPhone 3G with data

For the folks that want to utilize their iPhone 3G for all the glory that it is, you have a few more options. What it comes down to is you may choose a Voice and Data plan combo (where they come together) or separate the two and choose a Voice plan and add a Data plan option.

As mentioned previously, you can still pick up the $17.50 plan (remember the iPhone will run you $249 for the 8GB) and then for a data option, the best value is the iPhone Data Value Pack. This pack is $35 and gives you:

$35 iPhone Data Value Pack

500MB of Data, Caller Display, Visual Voicemail, Unlimited sent Text Messages, WhoCalled service.

So together with the EPP voice plan, your monthly total will run: $67.14 (BC Only). And of course, if you need more minutes or more data, you simply increase your plan, but that does mean increasing the amount you pay. (In other words, you do not have to choose what I just recommended. There are many VOICE plans to choose from but only ONE $35 iPhone Value Pack)

For Voice and Data combo plans, there are three very good choices.

$45 SmartPhone Plan

200 Daytime Minutes, Unlimited Evenings & Weekends (9PM), 500MB of Data

And then you may choose ONE (1) of the following free promos to add to the plan:

Unlimited Messaging or Unlimited Local Network Calling or My5 Canada Wide

    Okay, I purchased during xmas a black berry plan for 3 yrs ($30 for 500MB data and 17.50 for 200 mins) Then I sold my bb smartphone and purchased an iphone 3g.. But I never register my iphone with rogers, since it was a unlock phone, I simply insert my sim and started using it.. My question is , if the phone is not register by Service provider, does it cause any service disruption..

    Okay, I purchased during xmas a black berry plan for 3 yrs ($30 for 500MB data and 17.50 for 200 mins) Then I sold my bb smartphone and purchased an iphone 3g.. But I never register my iphone with rogers, since it was a unlock phone, I simply insert my sim and started using it.. My question is , if the phone is not register by Service provider, does it cause any service disruption..

  • If it works go for it. But does the visual voicemail work if you do it that way?

    How good is 500mb of data!!?
    If i’m spending it a bit on facebook, mail and watching five 5minutes clips on youtube from time to time…would it be good enough? Considering I’m always having Wi-fi where I go (school, home, arena wtv.)
    Cuz currently i have 30$ unlimited network|incoming|after 9, 200minutes day + 15$ (2500txt, 1000videos|pictures, voicemail, calldisplay, whoCalled).
    Im satisfied with the option for a 45$ plan but I’m still wondering if it’s worth it adding some data(500mb) and keeping the same budget.

    That’s exactly what I’ve been thinking… I want the new iPhone when it comes out but I do not want to lose my 6GB data and pay roughly $10 more… my current plan is just over $100 with 250 minutes, visual voicemail, 2500 texts, evenings at 5 pm and 6GB data… the 6GB data is key for me as I go through over 1 GB just web browsing… if the new phone has video and faster speeds as seems likely, I’m quite certain 1GB just wouldn’t cut it…

    If I’m on a 20 dollar retention plan (250 min / eve/weekends from 9PM), then the 17.50 plan seems better for me, as the majority of my calling is between 6-9PM.

    Can I just phone them up and switch to the 17.50 plan, or will I have to agree to push my contract out to the 3-year mark?

    Thanks for the info anyone…

    how do you get through 1 gig of data a month by just browsing? I use my internet constantly but thanks to iphone optimized sites, I can barely get through 500mb. Lately I’ve been streaming music non-stop at work via flycast and I can barely get over 1 gig. Please let me know how I can make the most of my 6 gig dataplan. I’m thinking it may be better to save $30 a month right now with the 45$ plan…

    Thanks! This was super helpful. FYI, I talked to a Rogers rep today (April 7), and they said the Employee Purchase plan for $17.50 is no longer available.

    I browse constantly on it and barely use my actual computer anymore. I love the convenience and find it quite easy to use. I do the occasional Youtube, download an app or song but mostly it’s just browsing, Nytimes, Cnn, apple/tech sites and facebook/twitter and I’m over 1 GB a month. So given that the new iPhone will most likely provide features that call for more data useage, these 1 GB plans do not suit me. 2 GB would be healthy although really 6 GB is quite nice to have, especially, oh and this is key, once tethering becomes an option.

    What I do wonder is if Rogers/Fido will allow me to pay extra for the new phone, say $299 or $349 but keep my current plan? I don’t mind extending my contract but I want to keep my current plan as 6GB rocks.

    What do you guys think? Will people with the 6 GB plans get to keep them and still get the new phone, even at a higher cost maybe with contract extension?

    Jon K – I wouldnt be at all surprised to see Rogers change the equipment upgrade dates but then tell everyone ” you can change but will have to end your 6gig plan agreement”.

    Kai- 1 gig per month by browsing would be kind of tricky unless of course you’re tethered.

  • I am blown away at how expensive cellphone plans have become. Just think back 5 years…but of course, we didn’t have all the bells and whistles back then. but still!

    I’m on a $20 plan that includes 250 minutes/Unlimited Rogers2Rogers and Rogers2Fido/6pm Evenings/Unlim. Weekends and I subscribe to a $15 smartphone value pack that includes voicemail, 2500 texts, and caller ID. I renewed the contract the first day the iPhone came out, but I neglected to get a data plan. Do you think I’m in a good position to bargain to lower the rate of the $35 value pack? 35 is a little steep. $20 extra wouldn’t be great. I could deal with 5 or 10 though.

    OK, so this is probably a dumb question answered a million times before, but worth a shot.

    I already have an iPhone 3G that I bought in the UK and is unlocked (and bought prepaid for a much much better deal than Rogers could ever dream of offering).

    ANYWAY, I have to return to Canada and have resigned to the fact I’ll be trapped into a contract with Rogers.

    My question is, if I already have the phone will I still be trapped into a 3 year contract? What’s the minimum contract I can get?

    I really wish I could just use it prepaid, it was running me about $20 a month for a ton of minutes and unlimited 3g/wifi hotspots for a YEAR in the UK with O2 🙁

    Thanks for your replies!
