That's interesting. I wondered why I was only getting a $10 offer when I called in. Does that mean it also includes tethering?
The $7.00 unlimited browsing package is now done
it is availble as the $10.00 package with increased usage:
basically it takes the $7.00 package that lets you:
browse the web, twitter myspace
on top of that you can now officially use:
3RD party apps such as Google maps, Yahoo, GO etc
Streaming video such as YOUTUBE
Tethering is excluded
IMEI restrictions still apply
here's the official line:
The main differences between the old and new service:
With the new enhanced Unlimited On-Device Mobile Browsing there are no ‘ineligible usage’ charges
In the old $7 option, if something was deemed ‘excluded’ from the plan, it was deemed ‘ineligible usage’ and was chargeable
These Value Pack customers will now enjoy the truly Unlimited version of the On-Device Mobile Browsing in their Value Pack

nope...Originally Posted by Haz
same as the $7
Pretty much everything BUT tethering. It's a sweet plan - although too bad it's not good for smart phones. That would be all too much to hope for...
The new sticky was badly needed, thanks!
This may be a good point to address the question of weather you can use the the Pay as you go version the same way as the post paid version.
Can you use all the newly added content of the post paid ULB add on on the Pay Go version ?
Any one know for sure ?

My online rogers.ca account still allows me only to add the 7$ monthly plan, so I'm assuming we PAYGo users are still lagging behind... As usualOriginally Posted by rchl
Thanks you have answered most of my questions. But when you say streaming Youtube video, do you mean watching a video from Youtube on my phone with no data charges? I am guessing this is the case but I don't want a surprise phone bill later!
Also, is it free for me to use the internet no matter where I am as long as I am in Canada? Or is it like my "local calling area" for my 416 area coded phone number??
So, basically if Youtube video watching is permitted, there is no site on the internet that would incur charges with the exception of downloading obvious things that cost like ringtunes, mp3 songs etc.?
Ok, if you use an unlocked phone - not from Rogers (what ever model/brand/type) and want to subscribe to their Internet offer, will it be ''denied'' automatically?Originally Posted by Treatz
Or is the IMEI restriction will allow some phone/SM?
I change my phones every 3-6 months, most of the time they are not from Rogers...it may be one day a Smartphone, and the next day a regular cell...depends on the mood...
So if I want to get this option, will I be restricted?
(by the way, I did use the ''search'' option in the Forum, and nothing clear came out...)

Been with Fido, Bell, Clearnet, PC Mobile Prepaid, T-Mobile USA, Koodo and Rogers.
Don't quote me as an expert on this, but from what I know of people who have bought unlocked phones that aren't originally sold by Rogers, you either need to block your data or get an actual data plan.
A co-worker of mine bought a phone originally from Fido, and had some data in a value pack intended for non-smartphones. He got charged for using data even though he was supposed to be covered. I believe he just blocked data on his phone.
Several months ago, I asked Rogers to block Rogers Internet AP (internet.com) at their end, as I got dinged by some apps (such as Opera mini) whose default AP is Rogers Internet. Recently I found out ebuddy and all other IM apps don't work on GoRogers AP.
So far I know these apps work great on GoRogers:
Opera mini, google maps, gmail
Do IM apps (such as Fring, ebuddy, Palringo) use Rogers Internet AP and not incurring charges? how about streaming video?
so to confirm, all traffic still needs to go through the GoRogers APN? Say if I start putting traffic through internet.com, will I be billed extra? If so, I see no difference as 3rd party apps were never billed for me under the old $7 plan in the first place.
Also, do I automatically get upgraded to this $10 unlimited browsing pack? I have the $15 value pack.
Finally - a thread that isn't 80 pages long.
But yes - everything needs to go through goam.com.
