Port out your number FROM Rogers
After 2 days you'll get call
That's the only way that works 99%of the time.
Why do people still ask stupid questions over and over?
your instructions are missing the part where you cannot port out to a rogers non competitor co.

For the short period of time that you have temporarily ported out from Rogers to another carrier (e.g. Telus or Koodo), what kind of charges can you expect from the other carrier? I believe Telus/Koodo do not charge activation fees if it's done online, but would they charge the pro-rated monthly fee for the amount of time before you transfer back to Rogers?

I don't think so. It seems like they changed their policy awhile back. When this was first offered, people were able to get the offer with really old Rogers/Fido numbers. Now, my guess is it's limited to accounts that have been cancelled within the past 12 months.

I joined this forum pretty much just to share my experience with Rogers win-back.

I ported my line and my mom's line (separate accounts) from Rogers to Freedom Mobile in late March. Never got the call or email offer.

I called the number, which has been posted numerous times in this thread, and a representative answered right away so the win-back team is still operating (Monday to Friday) as of April 6th.

I inquired about my number and found that it was ineligible. I had the $60 for 10 GB BYOD from Black Friday in 2017, which then became $65 for 15 GB over time. I then asked about my mom's number, which was eligible. She had $25 for limited voice and text and a contract that expired last year.

The first offer was the $50 for $15 GB as titled, which I accepted immediately, but prior to that, the representative also mentioned there are various offers to choose from. I was also given the option to finance a phone with a $300 bill credit. The phone itself was as priced on the website.

It has been mentioned a few times from other members that upon accepting the offer, you can open multiple lines. I claimed to be taking the offer on behalf of my mom, and stated that I wanted to come back as well. However, my mom was happy with her Freedom Mobile $25 for 1 GB plan. My intention was to just cancel the port for my mom when the SIM card arrives. Turns out, these SIM cards have temporary numbers assigned and there won't be a port unless you initiate it. When you call Rogers (*611) to activate, you have the option to port any phone number (not just the one that qualified you for the plan) or assign a new number.

TLDR: You can find someone, who recently ported out to a Rogers competitor and is eligible for a win-back plan, get them to get the plan, and do a Transfer of Responsibility after, or, if you are eligible, you can find some friends who may be interested in a win-back plan before calling the win-back team.

If you want to call US numbers with this plan is it an extra $15/m?

Happy to report back, got this awesome deal. I moved to Koodo with two accounts this Tuesday and got the call today to switch back. I also got $300 off each phone as I upgraded to iphone 11 pro.
Thanks all.

How would you do the transfer responsibilities?or is there a way to change the billing into your own if you used someone else to get this offer?
