D**mn you Rogers!
Maybe I should call them back, however I've just upgraded to a Torch last fall and rolled this plan over. I've had this same plan for 4+ years... when I went to renew they told me this plan doesn't even exist anymore... I know for sure the data plan is less GB and more money...

I have a few questions... Right now my plan is pretty decent, i know i can get much better but i'm willing to wait a bit. my contract is up december 2012. Now... when i renewed, i had gotten a new phone for free but have since changed to the torch, which i bough off contract from the US, and sold my other phone.
I was just wondering what the real advantage is by letting my contract expire and buying handsets @ full price and not signing a contract to get a reduced rate on the phone i am buying.
will they really give you the best possible price if you say "i don't want a rebate on a phone, i don't want a contract... give me your best monthly plan?"
or would rogers be more willing to give me a GREAT plan if i say i'll sign for a year but you don't need to subsidize my phone??
we have 6 cell lines with rogers in my family all being paid from either the business or my father who pays for my siblings.
I'm looking to negotiate for one of these two plans which i have seen people able to get from rogers:
Unlimited North America calling
Unlimited Txt Msg Global
Voicemail & Call Display
$65 A MONTH TAXES INCL
- $50 Unlimited North America Call and Text
- Free Caller ID
- $30 6GB data
- $10 + $15 credits
Total: $65 + taxes

Well i like the 50 NA Plan looks fairly decent.. this is what i currently have now.
700/Unltd Early Eve/Wknds Plan 50.00
BB Data Value Pack* 30.00
9-1-1 Emergency Access Fee 0.75
System Access Fee 6.95
Total before taxes: $89.85
GST (862395381 RT0001) 4.50
I hate paying for that darn system access fee..
IM ready to get a new phone Plus my fiance will be switching over from bell to rogers! so im in the hunt for 2 new phones.... hopefully that leads to good plans.

Talking to retention is like initiating a sparring match.
Be firm but nice and patient also don't show any weakness and know what you want and what you're talking about.
Also don't say u heard of others with this plan because they will try and stonewall you and tell you that its not their job to give you a plan your buddies have.
In the end, if you have a legitimate grievance you're far more likely to get what you want but also hope you get someone weak that you can exploit.
Mine is not the greatest, but it suits my current needs.
250 min/unltd eve & weekends
6pm early evenings <-- Credited
6GB data plan
Smartphone Value Pack <-- Whatever that gives me
UMA/Talkspot <-- most recent credited acquisition due to me living in a poorly services area.
100 Minutes Canada wide calling <-- Free
All in all after tax its $76.

Canadians are being ripped off when it comes to mobile plans !! big TIME .. we need to take a stand or something. Especially with the Canadian dollar out perfoming the u.s dollar ... Canadians are way too laid back and continue to be ripped off by our own goverment and large corporations !!!!!!!! friggin BS!!!!

I've been with Rogers 10+ years with 2 lines. It doesn't matter. The retention rep even told me "the squeaky wheel gets the grease". If you don't complain, you don't get.
