And what do you pay Rogers/Bell/Telus when you cancel at 12 months into your 24-month financing contract?RFDQ1016 wrote: ↑Jul 25th, 2019 3:41 pmThis is like the old times. "Free" phone on a contract.
I don't like big 3, but they did the right thing by unbundling phone and plan prices.
With this you are basically stuck for 2 years. 2 years is a long time. If a deal comes up on black Friday or something, you are on the hook for hundreds of $$$.
Even after 12 months, you owe $500+ if you want to change

I do BYOD. I want the "freedom" to move my line over whenever there is a better plan.

Original wording was along the lines of "any plan $40 and over" will keep the F&F going.

Besides the plan pricing, they offer up to $180 in BYOD credits.But freedom is not doing anything for BYOD.

Their site is getting worse by the day... Now you can't even get any info on the phones [like not even the _very basic_ specs] so you have to search elsewhere... and than you might stumble upon similar - but not the same! - model... and it leads to problems...Ecsta wrote: ↑Jul 25th, 2019 2:06 pmTheir website is horrible for managing your plan.
They said they saved my CC info to autocharge but every month i have to manually go in and apply a payment. I called customer service and each time they tell me they've entered the CC details but each month my service gets cut off due to "lack of payment" despite being told my CC is in there.
That said it's cheap and works on the subway network so the GF is happy.

Exactly my point. They made the byod and plan+phone pricing the same. There's no incentive for byod (except for the paltry $10/mo credit for 12 months, so I guess you can say really it's BYOD $70 (average if you stick around for 24mo) for 18GB or $0 iPhone and $75 for 24 months).

Would you feel better paying $95/mo for 18GB and an iPhone XR, and just $75 if you BYOD?

That would make it only 25% off, or even less.. but, they are also known to be full of $hit and ignorance... I'd try talk to some managers to check it tho... Otherwise, it's a great incentive to finally ditch them in case I'd need to change my plan...

That's how the new system works. F&F is no longer applicable with new plans and it's replaced by a $15 service credit.
