yes, but he would want to avoid data usage..Originally Posted by guardianflash
Ok so, my friend is on prepaid with Rogers. he wants to get a Rogers smartphone without contract, just outright. Would he be able to use the phone right away just by putting his prepaid sim in?
Rogers has the Data Day Pass thing for any Data to be used you have to agree to pay $2.99/20MB which is good for 24 hours. Once you have used the 20MB, you will get prompted to purchase another if you want to continue browsing...Originally Posted by hjlow
It's good that they do that so you won't accidently use data when you don't want to.Originally Posted by Phoenix713
If your friend lives anywhere but the Eastern timezone, he should also choose his paygo plan very carefully. Smartphones on paygo have an issue where airtime is rated only on Eastern time, even if you live in B.C. That means if you choose the 1$ day plan or 1cents eve./weekends, you are screwed. The only options would be MY5, anytime, or the all day plan.
And yes, this is a known issue.
If you take the E71 on prepaid and sign up for the $7/month unlimited data, is that WAP? I'm guessing its exceptionally slow? And can it be used to browse any sites & check email, or are there restrictions?
I was under the impression that this does not work anymore.Originally Posted by Shismo
Yeah there seems to be issues with what phones can be used with the $7 PayGo Unlimited Browsing. The CSRs don't even know what phones can be used. The only phones that 'for sure' can be used are the PayGo phones themselves.....
