    Rogers was supposed to Revamp Blackberry & WM Data plans, on hold indefinately

    These plans delayed indefinately. If coming at all. Thank you. Don't create new threads asking why either

    PRELIMINARY UPDATES TO DATA PLANS - MIGHT BE CHANGED SOMEWHAT AT OFFICIAL RELEASE

    Effective March 18th 2008
    -------------------------
    Unlim WAP = $7
    Unlim Vision WAP = $7 - 3 yr term with DECF

    Blackberry Data Plan - 3 yr term with DECF
    $15 - 10MB BIS/BES ~ Tier 1
    $30 - 10MB to 50MB BIS/BES ~ Tier 2
    $50 - 50MB to 200MB BIS/BES ~ Tier 3
    $65 - 200MB to 500MB BIS/BES ~ Tier 4
    $0.05 per additional MB
    *Note: Everyone starts off at the $15 plan and based on usage, you move up the tiers

    Non-Rogers & WM Data & Tethering - 3 yr term with DECF
    $15 - 20MB ~ Tier 1
    $30 - 20MB to 60MB ~ Tier 2
    $50 - 60MB to 500MB ~ Tier 3
    $65 - 500MB to 1GB ~ Tier 4
    $75 - 1GB to 2GB ~ Tier 5
    $85 - 2GB to 3GB ~ Tier 6
    $100 - 3GB to 5GB ~ Tier 7
    $0.03 per additional MB
    *Note: Everyone starts off at the $15 plan and based on usage, you move up the tiers


    ALL OLD PLANS GRANDFATHERED

    ALL PLANS WILL NOT CONFLICT WITH $20 COMM PACK



    Discontinued Plans
    -------------------
    Blackberry Voice & Data
    WM Voice & Data
    PC Card Plan
    Unlim Data for 3Months Promotion


    UPDATES AND CLARIFICATIONS

    1. Plans will be rolling out one week later than expected: March 25th. As usual, all training materials will be released to dealers and agents one week prior to the official release.

    2. The Blackberry Flex plan and the WM flex plan will now include unlimited messenger + personal email (Rogers Yahoo!, Yahoo Mail!, Google gmail, MSN, Hotmail, AOL, or POP3/IMAP account through your Internet Service Provider)

    3. $20 Comm Pack Conflict / When these new plans come into affect, customers will have the choice of adding either "$20 Comm Pack with unlim WAP" (what we have now) OR "$20 Comm Pack with no DATA". This plan will not be advertised to the general public but dealers and reps will be educated on this. If a customer already has the $20 Comm Pack and then wants to add-on the Blackberry Flex Plan, the rep will have to replace the current $20 comm pack with the new '$20 comm pack with no data' package and then add on the bb flex plan. They have to advise the customer of proration & that they are 'disabling the Unlim WAP portion of the package'

    4. The two flex plans described in the first post have a 3 yr data commitment associated to them with no exceptions. (Data Cancellation Fee = Data ECF= DECF= $5/month for remaining months to a max of $100 and a min of $25) This however will not affect your voice commitment.

    ex. You have 3 months left on you voice commitment and want to get the BB Flex Plan. 6 months down the line you port your number to another provider. your total cancellation fees would amount to $100+tax ($0 Voice + $100 Data)

    This is also applies for data-only customers

    5. The overages of $0.03/MB and $0.05/MB described in the first post is only if you go over the final tier.
    Example, You have the BB Flex plan and you use 10.001MB - You would be charged $30 - no threshold

    6. Rogers will be introducing new month-to-month data plans for BB, WM, Non-Rogers and Tethering:

    Blackberry Data Plans - Monthly
    $15 - 10MB BIS/BES ~ Overage: $2.00/MB w/ Overage Protection
    $30 - 50MB BIS/BES ~ Overage: $1.00/MB w/ Overage Protection
    $50 - 200MB BIS/BES ~ Overage: $0.50/MB w/ Overage Protection

    Non-Rogers & WM Data & Tethering - Monthly
    $15 - 20MB ~ Overage: $2.00/MB w/ Overage Protection
    $30 - 60MB ~ Overage: $1.00/MB w/ Overage Protection
    $50 - 500MB ~ Overage: $0.50/MB w/ Overage Protection
    (If you want more data without overages - only choice is 3yr WM flex plan)

    All Plans include unlimited Personal Email + Messenger

    7. The pay-per-use for data right now is $0.05/kb. Effective March 25th, this will change to $5/MB

    8. All data plans stated above can take advantage of the 33% percent discount when added with a Communicate or Every Call Value Package.

    Example You have the $20 Comm Pack + BB Flex Plan. You use 40MB. You would be charged: $20 (comm pack) + $30 (BB Flex) -$10 (33% off the BB Flex) = $40

    If a MOD could please add this info to the first post - that would be greatly appreciated

    Also, if you guys have anymore questions that need to be addressed, PM me. If I don't know the answer - I'll bring it to the departments attention.

    That's a pathetic offering from Rogers. It's a noticeable improvement, but still pathetic.

    Glad I switched to Telus.

    250 minutes / unlimited E&W 6PM / unlimited incoming / R2R / CID, VM, 2500 SMS / 500 int'l SMS / 100 LD / 6GB data
    $55 + $2.13 + tax = $64.56

    I agree. Excellent for those of us that use more than 7 megs but less than 25.

    Thinking about it, these a pretty decent prices for the casual user.
    But for a power user such as myself, it's not tempting at all.

    Good move, Rogers.

    Just for Curiosity, how many MB do you use on a monthly basis?

    You use more than 500megs on your BB? Yikes.

    Anyway, is the BB plan available without a contract? They can't seriously expect us to sign up for a 3 year to get those, even if they are improvements.

    Since the 15th of this month, I have used approximately 30mb.
    If I use 30mb every 5 days, that is approx. 120mb a month. At that amount of data, it's cheaper for me to spend $45 a month a Telus and get unlimited data and e-mail. When I factor in that that $45 also includes unlimited texts, CID, and VM (well over $20/month value), the Telus option is much cheaper for me.

    But like I said, for the casual user, this is a great system. It's not perfect, but it seems like it's the most that Rogers is willing to concede in the foreseeable future.

    what's DECF?

    is there a minimum voice plan for BB data plan? is it possible to have a BB data plan without a voice plan?
