Small Business Cellphone Deals (Rogers, Telus & Bell)

Hi. I have been trying to get a good small business cellphone deal for 2 lines. With the new plan and phone structure, the hopes of getting the deal I got back in 2018 with loads of small business credits is totally crushed.

I tried to reach out to Rogers, Telus and Bell (I am currently with bell so I reached out to their loyalty department) to see what is the best option available for me out there. Here is the summary of what I was offered (I haven't taken any of the deals yet). These are all ON plans.

Rogers Small Business plan - 20GB each line

1st Line
Plan Cost: $75 + Tax
iPhone 12 (Device Return Option): $32.34 + Tax ($460 at the end of 2 years if you want to keep the phone)

2nd Line
Plan Cost: $50 + Tax
iPhone 12 (Device Return Option): $32.34 + Tax ($460 at the end of 2 years if you want to keep the phone)

Credits
3 Months of free plan ($75 + $50 = $125 + Tax)
Free Airpods ($150 X 2 = $300)


Telus Small Business plan - 20GB each line

1st Line
Plan Cost: $65 + Tax
iPhone 12 (Device Return Option): $28.13 + Tax ($460 at the end of 2 years if you want to keep the phone)

2nd Line
Plan Cost: $65 + Tax
iPhone 12 (Device Return Option): $28.13 + Tax ($460 at the end of 2 years if you want to keep the phone)

Credits
$200 bill credit per line ($200 X 2 = $400)
Free Airpods ($150 X 2 = $300)


Bell Small Business LOYALTY/RETENTION plan - 20GB each line

1st Line
Plan Cost: $70 + Tax
iPhone 12 (Device Return Option): $20.12 (taxes included)
($460 at the end of 2 years if you want to keep the phone)

2nd Line
Plan Cost: $50 + Tax
iPhone 12 (Device Return Option): $24.82 (taxes included)
($460 at the end of 2 years if you want to keep the phone)

Credits
None. They already applied the $400 off device credit on 1st line and $300 off device credit on 2nd line ($400 + $300= $700). That is why the iPhone 12 monthly cost for Bell Loyalty/Retention is the lowest.


After doing the math, it looks like if you go with any of the above carrier, you will end up paying close to $180 (taxes included) for 2 lines with 20GB data each and iPhone 12 with device return option.

If you are not in the need of a new phone, then I would suggest to go with FIDO/VIRGIN BYOD plans of $40 for 8GB per line per month for the first 10 months with no contract.

Hope this will help people in understanding what is out there currently.

Absolutely. I just shared these details for information purpose only. As I mentioned, I have not taken any of these deals. I just inquired about it.

These are standard plans, at least from Rogers, and you can do far better.

The fact that Rogers tries to sell you 20GB PER LINE and claims it as such an amazing feature is absolutely rediculous. I've got 9 lines and use less than 25GB/mo COMBINED (pre-COVID).

Telus mobility for small business also has a few other boxing week device credits you could stack with that but it’s still luke warm at best even if you go 4 lines for 20/off per line and are coming from a non Telus carrier for the $200 bill credit per line.

Specifically:
$100 device credit on the iPhone 12 or mini
$200 device credit on the iPhone SE

I’d bite if they’d drop in visual voicemail for free on all four lines but I’ll be damned if I’ll pay 5/mo/line for a basic feature of the iPhone that’s standard usually.
