Rogers Debuts Unlimited Data Plan

Rogers Debuts Unlimited Data Plan

Posted February 5, 2008 at 1:40pm by iClarified
Rogers has debuted the Communicate Value Pack which features Unlimited On-Device Mobile Browsing.

The Communicate Value Pack costs $20 dollars a month and includes the following features:
- Unlimited On-Device Mobile Browsing
- 2500 Sent Text Messages
- 1000 Sent Picture/Video Messages
- Voice Mail
- Call Display
- Name Display
- WhoCalled


This Communicate Value Pack finally makes it financially feasible for iPhone users to use the Internet features of their iPhones in Canada; however, it seems Rogers doesn't not want certain phones on this plan:

* 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).

It will be interesting to see how Rogers will enforce this eligibility!

Rogers starts enforcing the rule of restricting the plan to exclude PDA,... any un-certified device. My bill changed from $0 -> $xxx this month!!! Do I can my IMEI or switch to someone else?

hey guys, why not change your imei in order to use your iphone with the rogers $7 unlimited plan. try the instruction here guy. https://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=657 best of luck with the ziphone though.

My recommendation, play the fool. I got over $1000 charges refunded last month and tis month. Though this month, they told me they won't be able to refund anymore. No more iphone unlimited. Well I sold my iphone last week and got an HTC Touch Diamond so until they have an unlimited windows mobile plan, no more data usage on Rogers.

Just got a text message that I've incured $75 in data fees. $7 unlimited plan has worked great for 6 months and now charges? I called Rogers and after getting the run-around, I'm told that Rogers does not credit non-Rogers devices. The fact that I've gotten out of being billed for my data for the last six months was "a fluke" - thanks Customer Service!!! Monitor your data usage this month and be careful? My guess is now that Rogers should have valid IMEI's for the new iPhones, they know what to look for and are charging for the data on those devices. iPhone IMEI blacklist perhaps? Any other ideas?

Hi Guys,
I almost had a heart attack here when I got my bill tonight. It was for $1200!!!
Then I talked with Rogers and they have clarified the issue and confirmed th atit is okay to sue my phone as they don't have any charges. They had mass amount fo charge for the day that they have turned feature on and they ahve reversed it saying it ahs been a system glitch on their end.
Anyway, it is all good now...thank God. I guess this means we can use our iPhones unlimted on this package despite what it says on theri web site :))

Anybody else got their bill yet?
Mert - February 18, 2008 at 2:22pm
Good news for me o far, too. I've just talked with Rogers and no data charges for me on my bill either. after I signed up on February 5th, I've used about 23MBs of data on my iPhone both for surfing, installer, weather, RSS, locate me, google maps, etc. and no charges ahve been applied.

One thing that I'm curious or worried about is adjustments to the previous months in the future. Anyone thinks that is possible?

Igf it goes like this hurray!!! We have unlimted access on Rogers for iPhone :))

Mert - February 18, 2008 at 11:03am
It is first month only.. I guess it might be 3 months if you're a new Rogers customer...

Well I'll see mine soon enough... I'm still scared to use it though... I don't want Rogers to get us somehow...
Adrian - February 18, 2008 at 9:40am
Yeah no charges. Was it first month free or first 3 I can't remember
Mert - February 17, 2008 at 5:07pm
Hey Adrian.. it is hard to read in there but I assume you got no charges, then?

They were also saying first month free unlimted everything with taht $20 package. Do you think it might have something to do with that? did you sign-up for $7 or $20?

I still have 2 more days...
Adrian - February 13, 2008 at 9:28pm
Anyone get there bill yet?
wongda - February 11, 2008 at 7:22am
After reading all this, I decided to ask for the $10 for 10MB package instead, and guess what, Rogers call center people are actually recommending me to have the $7 unlimited browsing package instead. Yes, I told them that I am using an iPhone, and I am now connected to internet.com instead of goam.com. Call center told me to call them if I have trouble with the bill. So, my plan is to use a little bit, and see what happen at when I receive the bill. (No, you don't get the first month free with this package).
BillyJ - February 10, 2008 at 10:49pm
I wanted to know what that hint was as well.. and what wongda was saying about the stealthsim. Also, if you give them the IMEI of another phone that is turned on, will that work?
Mert - February 8, 2008 at 11:25pm
Mine is due in a week... Moving from Eurpe to Canada, one thing I still couldn't digest is how they rip us off with this phone service and selection... On the other side of the fence, take Telus and Bell.. very outstanding data products but come with CDMA... who else uses it in the world... I so wish one day either Verizon, Cingular or AT&T gets into the Canadian market and they learn their lesson...
Adrian - February 8, 2008 at 11:20pm
p.s. my bill is three days overdue.. kinda worried
Adrian - February 8, 2008 at 11:19pm
I called again today and got yet another answer about the billing cycles. They said no charges are appearing because it happens at the end of the billing cycle. I am going to try getting through to the account care department (i think thats what its called) it's the highest level you can go before cancelling your service and they are the one's that have the power to take care of shit. Will keep you posted.
Mert - February 8, 2008 at 5:53pm
Sorry it was Adrian not wongda... :)

I'm so mad guys.. I can't even describe it... I'm thinking aobut goign to my mobile 10 plan I used to have.. 10mb for $10.. it was just fine with my iPhone unless I used downloads and heavy google maps. I wasn't getting charged for anything as long as I'm with 10mb limit.
