That's a damn good deal.
I'm also trying to get the 6P with my grandfathered 6GB plan... if that fails I think I am going to go finally jump ship and go with Wind's boxing day deal

Quick question, how do you use first reward points.dmflash wrote: ↑Santa came early for me! Customer relations gave me the following.My old plan was 3 GB unlimited Canada wide calling ,unlimited texting and call display I was paying $85 -$10.My new plan is 5 GB unlimited Canada wide calling,unlimited texting call display and enhanced voice mail for $95-$10.For my hardware upgrade I was give a $300 credit off any device!! I was pretty much speechless when he told me that.I chose a note 5 on sale for $325 and used my last $50 worth of first reward points to cover the rest of the phone and connection fee.Also Rogers has a promotion for TV ,Internet or home phone customers upgrading their phone on a share everything plan gets a $100 bill credit in 2 or 3 billing cycles.I scored this in Ontario

Recheck that Rogers price - that may be the BYOD price and they may hit you up for an extra $20 (or $10, depending what province you are in) per month.BlazinSun wrote: ↑Hi everyone, my rogers plan is expiring by the end of the year so I gave them a call. I used to have a very bad plan so now basically anything would be better.
I'm looking at a LG G4 and I am offered this
500 mb data
500 canada any time minutes,
unlimited weekend/evenings, call display, canada wide text, voice mail.
To get the LG G4 I will need to pay $99.99 (it was suppose to be $199.99 but the rep can give me $100 dollars credit for that)
I saw the Koodo LG G4 deal in this thread koodo-lg-g4-50-tab-medium-410-outright-1880841/
The equivalent plan would be their $40 dollar tier, but for the phone I will need to pay $15 dollars in addition each month for 24 months.
So assuming I am staying with the provider for 24 months. My cost is the following
$45 * 24 + $99.99 = 1179.99 and tax on top of this (I am in BC)
($40 + $15) * 24 + $50 = 1370 and tax on top of this.
Is my math correct? These plans fit my usage but I'm just wondering if my math is correct and if i should continue with Rogers then.
Thanks in advance.

That's still $15 cheaper than it is in QC and $40 cheaper than a 5 Gig plan in Ontario according to the web site AND you don't pay $10 more for a premium tab the way the rest of us do so perhaps there's a silver lining you should be seeing.

Well I ended up having to take the deal I was offered. My current phone was an iPhone 5, and it has seen its last days. Can hardly type anything now (which is due to a manufactures defect. The battery overheats, expands, and pushes the screen out so I can't press the screen properly). I took it to Apple, but they said they wouldn't fix it because it was past warrenty. The price to fix was over $300. No thanks Apple.

In most markets they charge $20/month for the subsidy - that whole 'get a phone for X dollars' promotion is bullsh*t - they charge you $480 (except on the prairies, where they charge $240) over the 2 year term for your phone in addition to whatever the up front price is.feminazi wrote: ↑Has anyone managed to get a device upgrade that has the Rogers government corporate plan (50 dollars for 5 gigs, 1000 minutes LD, local unlimited I think) from two years ago?
They will not subsidize a new device unless we move to the new government plan that costs at least 20 dollars a month more. This would mean that any savings on the phone would be eaten up by the increased monthly cost. When we signed the three year contract, we were told that we would be able to get a new device subsidized every two years. Rogers says they won't do that anymore because the CTRC changed how contracts work. I countered that we had a deal and that the change was irrelevant to us because the contract is still three years for corporate accounts but the rep/drone just kept repeating his talking points. The rep I bought it from said I could get a new phone by email and then when I asked about doing it a couple of months later he pulled back the curtain to show me the requirement to move to a more expensive plan. I would like to say that this mendacity is unique to Rogers but Bell is doing the same thing to us on our other contract with a great plan . . .
Has anyone had any luck getting a device subsidy with one of the 50 dollar government plans(that are now 70+ dollars) from two years ago?
