[My own line]
V551 $129.99
$35 admin fee waived
6 months unlimited local calls
2 year contract

[The new line]
V300 Free
$35 admin fee waived
6 months unlimited local calls
3 year contract
Same $23 corporate plan

The fellow wouldn't budge on the phone prices because of the underlying corporate plan. I don't think I got that great of a deal but I'm just glad to have two lines on the corporate plan.
I'm on the exact same plan and got the exact same offers as you.

Lucky Saturday. here is my story, since I signed my contract for 2 years last Nov, I was on 200 mins free after 6 & weekends. I had 6 months Free services ( only pay SAF and 911) , I have been watching this 1500 plan from begining, since I don't want to waste my 2 months Free credit for Mar and Apr, I have not called tham until this morning, coz the plan will expire on 2.28. This morning, I called at 9AM, the first 5 Reps are not that good, some one told me they can't waive the $35 shipping fee. someone only agree to cut the shipping fee half. Someone doesn't agree to give me first year Free, not even Unlimited. I just told them I would think about it and hung up. Then I just called back right away. For the 6th rep, I got Mike. After I told him the plan details, he said it would be my lucky saturday. There are only 3 phones you can get for free as every knows. He suggested Samsung E 316. And I took it right away. ( attention, you should ask them to waive the shipping fee before they put u on hold and go to set the shippings.)So I ask him to waive the shipping fee. He agreed right away after I asked. and he said he would this exception for me only. So cool. And he said I could change the plan anytime I want.

The plan details

$50 dollar per month,
1500mins daliy, Free after 6 PM &weekend
Free Samsung E316
First year free ( only pay 6.95 SAF & 911fee)
Caller ID, Voice Mail call waiting, forwarding, 3 way calling
$35 shipping fee waived

Everything depents on the rep you got. Hope you get a nice rep. If you don't , just keeping calling as what I did. The 6th one is good.

well they wanted to only credit 45/month, and charge 5 a month for call display extra.

I had 450 minutes shared between one line and another, and 400 incoming free as well.

but I would always use about 1500 minutes and my day time would skyrocket, and I pay about 120 - 150 per bill but I was on per second billing.

How bad is per minute billing, now I will pay 50 on each, and get 45 credit, they said they will cahrge 5 bucks for call display but credit it back.

I had 65 dollar plan plus 10 bucks for hte additional phone, but my bills came up to 150-200 for business..

Please explain so I know I did good or not..

if i already signed a 3-year plan and got the V220 but don't like it anymore, is there a way i can get a better phone from Rogers (or pay a little more to upgrade the phone) without having to extend the contract further?

can i just complain that it is a bad phone with bad reception?

What happened? Is V220 that bad? Have you tested it?
How bad is the reception?

How bad is the reception?

the phone itself isn't that bad in terms of reception, but it's not very sturdy.

and it's got a really plastic-feel to it, and the springs aren't that good when flipping. that's why i would much rather get a different phone. the bad reception is just an excuse i'm using with Rogers
