I leave my data roaming OFF and I still 'roam' to Bell/Telus. Maybe you should try that, should avoid US roaming?!
Really? This is from Rogers.

Do I need to do anything to start using Extended Coverage?

Talk and text services will work once you enter an Extended Coverage area and your device connects to Extended Coverage. To use the internet for email, maps and more, just make sure data roaming is turned on in your device settings.

I know, saw that too. I turned it off for a quick trip to US and forgot to turn it back on. I used to travel to Labrador City for work and was on Bell network without the data roaming ON.

Will test it next time when I roam to Bell/Telus.

You need to call in to change pre-authorized billing info. You won't need to wait too long before you are able to talk to a CSR.

However, you may make payments with any credit card online after you login to your account.
Is it just me, or has the option to "Pay Now" online via My Account been removed at some point in the last few weeks?

I wanted to make a lump sum payment using my Amex on both my account and my wife's account, but can't find the option anywhere anymore. Their FAQs don't mention it anywhere either.

Logged into my account, I don't see that pay option either.

It may be due to the fact, that new billing cycle has not commenced yet because my account says my billing cycle refreshes in two days and my account has no arrears.

Hopefully, but probably not. A month or two ago I made a payment via credit card online and had a credit on my account still at the time so I suspect they've just outright removed it. Seems weird that they'd force you to call in to make a non-pre-authorized payment or to change your credit card..

Does zoomer allow number port-in while signing up for this $36 promotional plan? Any associated fees?

You can do port-in after you receive their shipment. It is free.

yes you keep the plan month to
month after the 2 year is done. you cant get this plan without getting a phone. for some reason if you get a plan with zoomer with a byod it's a rip off. go figure. get the phone and sell it. that's what a lot of ppl do. I just gave it to my brother.

Because otherwise they can't really force you to sign a term contract, that's the only reason they can give you a cheaper plan. Effectively they are applying the retail price of the phone as the Early Cancellation Fee which they otherwise cannot charge.

If you need a BYOD plan, you can think it in another way.

You can get a cheapest phone and you only owe them $100 as device balance. If you cancel your plan after 1 year, you only need to pay them $50 as "cancellation cost".

Many people sell their free phones and further lower the cancellation cost.

In my opinion, a 2 year contract is not that bad.
