Telus matched the original Rogers offer - all it took was a simple phone call + 1 escalation.

I was previously on a 10GB $50/mo BYOD winback (from Rogers) plan. Am now at 25GB+Unlimited $40/mo BYOD.

Talked to TELUS, and they offered me $40.....for unlimited talk and text only. No data. Looks like I'll be calling Rogers up.

Mind sharing :)

Hi if someone could please confirm if my thinking is correct as I've never switched phone companies before.

1. I go to freedom get the $35 for 11gb and free phone (current promo ATM) and ask to have my number to be ported from rogers. My contract with rogers ends Feb 2021 so I will likely have a cancellation fee and remaining tab in my phone which I pay?
2. Rogers winback will call and might offer a similar plan but how do I accept rogers again when I'm in a contract with freedom now? Would I tell Rogers winback to port my number back from freedom, then tell freedom that crtc allows us two weeks to test out the plan and I'm getting horrible reception so I would like to cancel? Then freedom should be able to cancel the contract with no fees?

Also my wife's contract with fido ends Nov ,15 I wonder if she can join the new winback plan if I get it?

Thanks

Glad some of u are having success with the Winback team contacting you to port back! Meanwhile I'm here trying to jump thru hoops just to make a new account. Talked to NUMBEROUS Rogers CSRs on the phone but just keep getting bounced around. Call the winback team directly and they say my number isn't on their list to contact- ive been with you for 10yrs+!

I've prob been on the phone with Rogers, collectively over 10hrs dealing with this issue over the past 3 weeks!

I've made complaints and haven't even received a response. Next step will be contacting the media shortly.

Rogers and the Winback team are not one and the same. Winback is a third party company all together and they don't communicate with each other. You're either on the list or not.

I'm ready to make the plunge now and would appreciate advice from those with experience.

Currently I have two lines with Rogers in BC.

My line has $60 with 15GB
My wife's line is $65 with 10GB

I currently have Telus for Internet.

My understanding is that Shaw isn't an option for me because I don't use them for Internet.

Should I port out to Freedom's $35 for 11GB plan and then hope to get Rogers winback to offer $45 (or possibly 20% off that) for 25GB?

Is there any special procedure for porting out to Freedom?

If for some reason I don't get the winback offer, what should I do then if I don't want to stay with Freedom?

Thanks in advance for any advice or tips.

I don't quite follow, why is there so much discussion about the Telus winback offer in this thread? Am I missing something? Is there a way to port into a Telus winback offer from a Rogers mobile account? If so, for those of you who have been able to do it, please explain your steps.

yup,, it's a different company, can't remember the name but I almost hung up on them until they started talking about Rogers.

Cross post from the ongoing deal Rogers thread but figured i’d post here.

I’m curious about porting my number for a winback offer. I’ve currently paid off my phone but have a watch on a monthly plan. Is it possible to just port out the cell phone and leave the watch to continue being paid off monthly? Or would the whole account need to be wiped away?

They are also using a company for HUP. Got a call from a company called 7 Power or something like that saying they are calling on behalf of Rogers about upgrading my phone as my tab is done as of last week. They offered nothing special though, so I'm probably going to port out and seeing if I get a winback.

I totally get how frustrating this must be but you are spending 10+ hours trying to get a deal from them because you switched? So basically rather than them coming to you 'to win you back' you are actually going to them to 'please take me back'. that is just lowering your chances my friend. As someone said, either you're on the winback list or you're not. Why aren't you on the list and why are the offering it to others and not you is another question...

I don't even know if media is going to even take it as a story. Again, I know you're annoyed.. but at the end of the day, it is winback..it is company's discretion who they want to offer.. Don't think it will fly well with media anyway..

PS: I am not with Rogers and have no affiliation with them.. just trying to show you the some direction to help you.. My advice would be, move to Shaw $45/25GB clearly Rogers does not want your $$ which I know is annoying.. but that is what the message they are sending you loud and clear..

My brother got this deal tonight for him and his wife.

He ported over to Shaw Mobile yesterday to the $45/25GB plan. He was hesitant and scared about this whole winback process as it was his first time.
I told him he had nothing to lose as he was paying a ridiculous price and getting very little data.

I got my winback from Fido about a month ago. ($35/25GB, $200 bill credit, iphone 11 256GB)

$45 minus 20% for 24 months.
iphone 11 64 GB $36/month $0 down. $300 bill credit.
$45 activation fee to be waived in 2 or 3rd bill.
Free android tablet with 2 GB data for 24 months.

Thanks to everyone who contributed here. Very happy to have gotten the deal for my family.
