I just got off the phone with Fido and they do not offer this deal.
He explained that even though they are the same company they are "in competition" with Rogers (I don't see how) and have different pricing etc.

Their only deal regarding the iPhone is 100$ off the full price if you are an existing customer.

So you can get the iPhone 3Gs for 599$ and 699$ if you are an existing customer.

Has anyone received conflicting/matching information?

and here I had minor dental surgery yesterday and was on drugs so I didn't venture out to the local store to think about upgrading.

my 3G serves me well, but geezus, I like it so much that I want the new one lol

i'm going to check my bills b/c i'm sure i'm darn close to $100 per month and I'm sure I bought in September of last year.

And gee, it's father's day

Keep in mind that as with most Rogers announcements, many customer service reps don't know about the information for a week, or unless you direct them to the right webpage:

rogers.com > iPhone > Current Rogers Customers? Find out how you can upgrade

I'd call in, and forget about stores for the upgrade, unless you know the salesperson really well. For some other purposes stores are good, but for upgrades they have no incentive and aren't usually willing to ask for discounts on your behalf. Stores/staff don't work for Rogers; they are completely independent.

I just called and got the same story. By spend is likely $99.98 a month so I know they would find a way to screw me anyway. There is no way I am dropping $699 on a locked phone. Were it unlocked at that price, I would consider it. Who does Fido think they are kidding with not matching Rogers pricing.

Get lower Price and use Fido dollars

Does anyone know the answer to this:

- I am eligible for the lower price because I have a couple of phones with Fido so my monthly bill is greater than $100;
- I have about $110 of Fido dollars accumulated.


Assuming I extend my contract for another year, can I get the the iPhone 3GS for $299 - $110? $189 for the 32 Gig ....



If I can, it would be tempting ....

It's cheaper to pay your ECF with Fido and sign on as a new Rogers customer with a new contract than it is to buy the phone with their $100 off deal, unless you have some huge amount of Fido Dollars accumulated...

Thanks for letting us know about this deal.
Does anyone have a sense of the value of used 3G phones on the used market?

where are the Rogers bashers now

I am not sensing any excitement, where excitement is due...

Rogers is offering:
early upgrades, iphone with no contract, discount for higher volume users, MMS, tethering...
i know we all bash Rogers, but today they deserve praise!
