I just got unlimited data for $7.00 (Rogers)

Had to phone Rogers today and complain once again about my data rate plan 10 MB for $10.00.

The women then transfered me to another women who offered me a $7.00 UNLIMITED DATA RATE PLAN!!! I could not believe my ears! I was assured by her that I have UNLIMITED DATA (Edge) for 7.00 a month! I had her repeat this several times!!!She said it was effective immediately.She also told me that this plan was in effect since Feb 5.

I guess time will tell and I'll see what kind of bill I get from Rogers. They NEVER asked or did I volunteer what kind of phone I had! This was all done over the phone, actually my iPhone! I'm ready to fight the fight if I end up getting a bill for $10,000!!

I hope you recorded the conversation, the name of the rep and the time of the call.

Your phone doesn't qualify for this plan, and it's WAP browsing anyways. But you never know, sometimes things work out the way they aren't supposed to...

I didn't record the call but did get the name of the person I spoke with and have recorded the time I called.

I repeated three times to her

"So I have UNLIMITED DATA for 7.00 a month"

She replied "Yes sir and effective as soon as we hang up"

My iPhone is working fine Safari,Google Maps and .Mac mail

If that actually happend, that's awesome. I'd suggest calling in a day or so and checking your account balance. If possible, record the call and if you have the data plan, get it verified that it covers all data.

I'm happy but at the same time a little scared lol

I'm going to take your advice John and call on Monday and record the conversation.

What's the best way to record a phone conversation? Speaker phone?

I'm a fan of Skype recorder. Works well, saves it as a digital file. I don't think it works with all 1800 numbers, so you might need a non-1800 number to use it with Rogers. But 1800 numbers are a free call, if memory serves.

I wouldn't go overboard with that plan... the $7 plan is actually called "Unlimited on device Mobile Internet" meaning only WAP sites on a regular phone (no data device, no PDA or smartphone) provided to you by Rogers. You bet you're gonna get a $10,000 bill and I'm telling you it'll be pretty hard to fight it.

Which is why I just switched to Telus today.

I used to brag about Rogers customer service which is why I stayed with them despite paying a bit more for the service. Customer service has deteriorated to a point where I have moved on to where customer service may be equally as bad but hey their data plan is so much better. Only restriction is no media streaming, no VOIP, and no tethering.. I can deal with that.

Quote:
Important: This plan includes unlimited on-device mobile browsing only. Plan is available on select phones only (PDAs such as Blackberry or Windows Mobile devices, PC cards and non-Rogers certified devices are not eligible). Data usage incurred on ineligible devices, incurred while tethering (using device as wireless modem for laptop) or incurred using non-Rogers (3rd party) applications downloaded to your device will be subject to pay-per-use charges of 5 cents/KB.

What is tethering?
This plan does not include any usage incurred while tethering. Tethering is when you use your phone as a wireless modem to connect to the Internet from a laptop computer. The phone can be connected to the laptop via USB cable or Bluetooth. Once connected, you can access the Internet wirelessly on your laptop using the Rogers Wireless network. While accessing the Internet wirelessly on your laptop, data charges are incurred at a rate of 5/KB.

What are 3rd party applications?
3rd party applications are applications like Yahoo! Go or Google Maps. These are non-Rogers applications which can be downloaded to the device and incur data charges at a rate of 5/KB.

check howardforums.com. Information about this plan has been posted months ago, and there has been hundreds of threads on it. It really shouldn't work, and you will probably get a horribly high bill, but in the end you will be able to get the charges reversed. Time will only tell, thats the only way now to know if you can use an iphone.

Nevermind that its WAP browsing only..
but if you read the fine print, it says something along the lines of only working with Blackberries, some other phone, or other Rogers-tethered devices..i.e not the iPhone. I actually asked the rep yesterday when I went to sign a new plan, and he said if you try to use the unlimited plan on an iphone you run the very serious risk of getting a MASSIVE bill..as it does outline in the fine print the limitations!! be careful!
