Rogers PAYG: No Plan Option?

Hi everyone,

I keep a backup number with Rogers on the $10/month prepaid talk and text plan. It comes with 50 minutes of airtime but I rarely use this much on this number.

Wondering if there's a no plan option where you are only charged for what you use (something like "pay per use")? Been looking everywhere on rogers.com but it seems only monthly/annual PAYG plans are offered.

Many thanks,

Geoff

do you mean a plan where you pay nothing per month if you use nothing?

Yeah, where you are charged for your actual usage from a stored value. Is this available from Rogers?

The 7-11 option requires you to top up on an annual basis but the PPU rates are pretty high.

I have a second line for emergency with 7/11 speakout. I only paid $25 for 365 days.

Thanks, everyone. I hold this phone mostly to receive texts containing security codes from banks. As I travel from time to time I'd like to have the assurance that I would still receive these while out of the country. Rogers PAYG, as I experience first hand, seems to be able to do just that, albeit at $10/month which I'm hoping to pay less.

I read from SpeakOut that they don't offer roaming. I take it that texts won't reach either, while overseas?
ROAMING: “Roaming” occurs when a subscriber of one wireless service provider uses the facilities of another wireless service provider. Roaming most often occurs when you make and receive calls outside the home calling area. Your 7-Eleven SpeakOut Wireless phone will not roam. An indicator light on your phone may display the word “Roam,” “RM” or NO SERVICE on the screen while the phone is not in its home calling area.

My experience is keep buying $10 for every 6 month to keep the number. You don’t need to buy $10 every month. Save your money
