If I already have an iPhone 3G from Rogers and wish to upgrade to the new iPhone 3G S are there any special offers?
Yes. For a limited time, if you are an existing iPhone customer who does not yet qualify for an upgrade, you will be able to take advantage of the below two offers for upgrading to a new iPhone 3GS.

Offer 1:
If you are an existing Rogers iPhone 3G customer who has minimum tenure of 6 months since your activation/last upgrade, you can receive $250 off the no-term, device-only price, for a new iPhone 3GS provided that you have a data plan and extend your service agreement by 1 year. This offer does not apply for upgrading to an iPhone 3G.

Offer 2:
If you are an existing iPhone 3G customer who activated or upgraded to your iPhone 3G from July 11-Sep 30 2008 and have consistently spent on average of $100 or more each month on your Rogers wireless services you will get $500 off the no-term price of an iPhone 3GS, provided that you have a data plan and extend your service agreement by 1 year. This offer does not apply for upgrading to an iPhone 3G.

No-term   Offer 1   Offer 2
iPhone 3G S 16 GB     $699      $449     $199
iPhone 3G S 32 GB      $799      $549     $299

These offers are available wherever Rogers’ smartphones are sold or by calling Rogers’ customer care. These offers are valid until July 31st.

Is there a limit to the number of iPhone 3GS that I can purchase?
Overwhelming customer feedback indicates there’s great demand for iPhone 3G in Canada so to ensure as many Canadians as possible can get one as soon as possible, we are limiting purchase at launch to a maximum of two devices per customer until further notice.

Will I still be able to purchase an iPhone 3G?
Yes. See below for pricing.
Term pricing
16GB iPhone 3G: $149 (while supplies last) with a 3-year voice, and 3 year data plan as of June 19th, 2009

Fido iPhone 3G S Upgrade Info

If I already have an iPhone 3G from Fido and wish to upgrade to the new iPhone 3G S, are there any special offers?

Yes. For a limited time, existing iPhone 3G customers can apply their FidoDollars towards the no-term cost of the iPhone 3G S without subscribing to a data add-on. In addition these customers will receive a $100 FidoDollars Bonus top up towards the purchase of the new iPhone 3G S. This offer is effective June 19 to July 31st, 2009.

If I’m not an existing iPhone 3G customer and do not qualify for the above limited offer, can I redeem my FidoDollar for a new iPhone 3G S?

Yes. Non-iPhone customers can redeem their FidoDollars towards the no-term cost of the iPhone 3G S by subscribing to a data add-on with term.

Phew! That is a lot of information to digest. What “offer” do you fall under? Many people are definitely going to be happy to hear some solid news on upgrade/outright prices to the iPhone 3G S. Now that we have it, what are you going to do?

My average monthly spend is less than $100/month for my iPhone 3G, so that means I fall under “Offer 1”. I can extend by 1 year, and pay $449 for a 16GB iPhone 3G S. Hmm…

Could these concessions be due to our petitions to Rogers and possibly the concessions made by AT&T in the USA?
