Thanks, it looks like the data option would be feasible.

My $120 plan from last year expires in a couple days. Called in and told them I'd like to renew the plan, she asked if I was aware it had gone up to $180. I said no, and she immediately said no problem, I can give you a $60 credit.

I also was able to get a $60 credit today for renewing for another year. I had to ask for it though.

For what it's worth, I got a targeted limited-time offer email from Rogers for $20 / month unlimited talk (canada-wide) and unlimited text.

Slightly better than the 50 minutes per year that you get with the $180 / yr plan, and potentially better than the 50 minutes per month for the $20 / month package, depending on how much voice you use.

Family basically uses texting only -- can't really beat ~$15 per month... Hopefully get in on the $60 credit for grandfathering -- thanks for that tip!

I got the $60 credit agreed to already.

A few days ago, I called in to top-up $120 for 2018, they asked me to register my credit card first, and require 2-3 days for credit card validation. And I did.

So after I provided my credit card info but cannot pay using it right away (need 2-3 days to validate), the Rogers rep gave me a goodwill token of $10 to my account (on top of the $60).

You can try it - it makes sense because Rogers wants to move all prepaid customers to a automatic top-up (post-paid) plan, and the first step for that is to get your credit card info - Rogers is willing to pay you $10 for that info.

Seems like Rogers is limiting the dollar amount you can carry to $150 max starting in 2019 for pay as you go.

I canceled my $180 plan altogether because of the price raise. I felt it might be dishonest trying to get a $120 deal again for another year, and now I'll be paying, even more, money over the long term with another provider, but I can do so monthly.

hi BritishColumbian, it was first time that I used Rogers carrier about pay as you go plan. So I have some confuse about my call / transaction history. Would you please explain me more detail base on the information that I sent below. Thanks!
[I'm using Talk & text $10 monthly. On Rogers plan detail, it's free of charge for 50 minutes and 50 message (outcoming for sure will be counted, but how about incoming message??? isn't it counted). Like my information below, my usage still below that threshold, but it showed opposite what Rogers said. Am I wrong????]

Sorry, I don't use that plan anymore and only used it for one year. I don't know how to answer your question.

Difficult to say as he Snapchats everyone now, so a few may be good at the beginning, but I can see unlimited further down the road.

For $10 a month ($8 with auto payments) you can go with Public Mobile and you'll get 50 minutes a month and 50 outgoing texts (incoming is free).

Public mobile offers 50 texts and picture messaging (unlimited incoming) and 50 canada wide calls a month for $8 if you use autopay. You can get an ad on for a gig of data for $30, that lasts as long as you have a plan. You can use an app like Textme if you want more texts or voice calls, which is pretty much unlimited when you use available wifi. That is about $130. If you have a few months where you need more, you can change plans on the web site. Very flexible.

If he snapchats, hopefully he uses wifi a lot. Hard on the data.

Koodo is $15/mo for unlimited sms and you get 10% discount with auto pay.
Public is $8/mo for 50 sms and 50 mins/month with auto pay.
Speakout is $100/year. Right now they have $25 free bonus, so you actually get $125 worth of credits. Unlimited sms is $10/mo.

Is anyone still on the grandfathered $100 (or less) per year plan?

$120 per year users have all been pushed to $180 and, where have you migrated if you didn't renew at $180?

I'm most likely not going to renew at $180. Looking back, I started with the $75/yr beginning of 2013 - six years is a good run.

Lol. You think paying $15 a month for unlimited calling and texting is a bad deal?

I switched to public mobile. You can get 50 minutes and 50 texts a month for $8 ($10 - $2 autopay). So $96 a year.

Plus if you use a referral, you can get a $25 credit:
