Rogers: No Activation Fee Until August 2 2010, iPhone Not Eligible?

Effective July 28 2010, Rogers has extended their activation fee waiver promotion and are continuing to waive the $35 activation fee that customers are usually charged when starting up a new account.

There is also an odd part to this promotion. The promotion is not being extended to Voice & Data plans, which is typically what the iPhone takes (Rogers gouging the customer again?).

Eligibility & Restrictions

The offer is applicable to new 3-year term activations on the following rate plans:

  • Unlimited Plans (All “choice of feature” plans: Unlimited Network Calling, MY5, Double Your Minutes, Messages, Unlimited Social Networking)
  • Business Voice card plans ($45 plus)
  • Select Business plans (Canadian One Rate, North America One Rate)
  • Employee Purchase Plans (EPP)
  • Student Plans

This offer is not available on:

  • Consumer Voice & Data bundle plans (Couples & Family Voice & Data, iPhone Voice & Data, Business Voice & Data)
  • Mobile Broadband Data plans
  • Embedded Laptop plans
  • Corporate plans
  • Business Pricing Renewal (BPR) price plans

A $35 bill credit for 100% of the activation fee will appear on the customer’s first invoice.
