Hmm, I'm thinking of helping my mother get the new iphone 12 but not sure which one yet and is pating 10GB + 5GB $65 - unlimited text and talk (currently has an Iphone 5 if I remember correctly).

Question: How does this upgrade work? I assume she needs to sign a 2 year term if she wants a $0 down phone? Or is it better to go to an apple store, buy the phone outright and bring it in? It seems like any carrier on a monthly installment calculation is a tiny bit high.

Never done this before since I always BYOD for myself

Thanks!

Looks like the $50 plan has the best value compared to other plans.

Going from the homepage or from "Upgrade Plan" button is not working for me.

From Upgrade Plan button, it does not show the said plan.

Honestly f*** Rogers and Fido. For the 10GB $50 plan, they say this:

“Get 4 GB of bonus data with select Data, Talk & Text plans. Offer will be applied automatically after check-out and will appear as of your 2nd or 3rd bill. Available for new activations and hardware upgrades only.”

Which means your first 2 months could be only 6GB?

When you upgrade, what plans do you see? I see the same in-market plan which is above.

This is what it says on Fido's homepage. Perhaps, you are just switching plan, not doing hardware upgrade?

10GB FOR $50/MO.
Plus, we're helping you stay connected with 1,000 international long-distance minutes to select countries for 24 months! For a limited time with new activations and hardware upgrades only.

This is what I see when I add a phone.

Update: I see what I'm doing wrong here. I should be selecting the 6GB plan (since that's now upgraded to 10GB).

I would chat or call since they explicitly advertise for hardware upgrade.

But, I'm currently on the 50$/15GB plan. So not worth it quite yet - I'll just buy a phone separately.

I went in to get the plan. 10GB for $60 plus an additonal 4GB. An addional 2GB of bonus data which you will only have for a limited time. They have unlimited data for 5 hours per billing period as well.
