you can totally get it waived. just try to ask nicely, saying you are student and the phone came out more than you expected to.

it's only $35 plus tax, but really why should you pay it when you have option not to. just ask nicely.

So we will continue to get kicked in the nuts until the government starts implementing plans to bring in more competition by allowing them to set up GSM towers or use Rogers at a discounted rate.
Yeah but I don't think starting up another GSM network is the answer. We do have number portability and we should take advantage of it. You don't like Robber's data rates? Switch to Bell and enjoy their unlimited data browsing with their HTC Touch. You get to keep your number and get a true Internet anywhere experience. The more people leave Robbers, the more chance that they'll have no choice but to match Bell's offer. Then it's a win-win situation for the consumer. The more people stay with Robbers, the more likely things will stay the same.

Keep that Rogers GSM phone handy as a backup for when you travel overseas.

$30/month is what US customers pay too.
It's not like they offered $30 for something like 200MB.
$30/month is very reasonable
I was never comparing it with the neighbors to the south. I was saying that Bell's HTC Touch with the $7 unlimited internet option is a steal compared to the iPhone's limited data plans. You do anything on the Touch without worrying about whether that video, radio stream, GPS map data, and MSN chat will cost you an arm and a leg.

but HTC Touch is an EDGE device
iPhone will be 3G and you can not compare the 2 as iPhone is much much much more data hungry than HTC Touch.

I was talking about the CDMA Touch not the GSM version. Bell runs on CDMA while Rogers uses GSM.

I got the HTC touch mid may for $200 on a HUP because their price was $229 for a new 3-year activation. Now that their price has dropped to $99, will Rogers give me a discount if I call in? When did they change their price on the phone?

This is a Dept created for the sole purposes of retaining unhappy Customers (Cx) who want to cancel. Cx of Rogers are supposed to call *611 (Customer Support (CxS)) initially and make their case. Upon determining that the Cx is sincere and won't budge, the rep is supposed to transfer you to CxR.


Curious,

How many have tried *611 and get retentions right away? Wonder if it is luck of the draw, or maybe it gets rerouted if all the CxS are busy.

Anyone care to comment?

I got a free phone from a retentions deal about 2 months ago and I am under the 30min usage but over the 30 days ownership for it because I never took the time to get the phone working until now and I don't like it. ... how should I go about calling them back and asking to swap phones? I would like to get a blackberry and I understand there will be some cost to it, but I'm not sure how to approach this situation.

Thanks in advance for the help :)
Help :) Thanks!

Lock open source? I would think it would be pretty easy to get around.

I always use my home phone to call Rogers, but for some reason they thought my home phone number is a paygo number, so they transfer me to paygo dept. So the 2nd time I called, I just say "representative" when they ask me if I want the French version. After that, they'll ask "ok, I'm happy to transfer you to a representative, but may i know the reason?" I said, "Cancellation" Then it automatically transferred me to retention department. It works every time! (I think I called five times using this method)
