    Just wanted to chime in here and list what I got since the old retentions thread was closed and a plan someone listed there was a good template for what I was looking for, mind you I didn't go in with the mindset of low balling the crap out of them so I know there is better out there but I'm still quite content.

    Pretty much I dialed in to *611 one morning that I had time to waste with the phone rep asking for competitive pricing options because my contract ends in Jan 2011. I let her do her convo outline going through plans etc. while taking note the flaws of each. I then asked if I could get to retentions but she politely denied the request because she said she'd need a valid reason to have her manager approve the transfer.

    So I quickly went through the plans that she listed for me and compared it to what fido was offering and how it wasn't competitive at all, listing specific reason why it wasn't competitive. 2min later I was being transferred to retentions

    I gave the retentions rep a quick overview of what I've talked about and she went about her way. At first she offered:

    $30:
    250 daytime minutes
    Unlimited evenings & weekends after 6pm
    2500 Text, VM, Caller ID
    Unlimited Incoming
    100 Long Distance Canada wide.

    I then asked how much it would cost to add rogers2rogers, and she threw it in there for free. And even better was when she went to apply the update it denied the rogers2rogers and kept my free network calling instead.

    The final deal I got was:

    $30:
    250 daytime minutes
    Unlimited evenings & weekends after 6pm
    2500 Text, VM, Caller ID
    Free Rogers network calling
    Unlimited Incoming
    100 Long Distance Canada wide

    + $25-$5
    500mb data plan when I can get my hands on the iphone

    I don't know the exact numbers for cost yet (ie. tax, fees, etc.) because I just got this last week but once my bill comes in I'll try to update if i remember. Again this obviously isn't the lowest plan possible but I was happy about it

    New thread, yay! For reference, here's what I got last month from retentions:

    250 minutes + Unlimited E/WE from 6pm + 100 bonus minutes (so 350 total)
    100 Long Distance minutes
    Voicemal/Caller ID/2500 sent text messages
    6GB data plan

    total= 55$ + GRRF + taxes

    Not a great deal, but decent I think. Voice is 25$ after credits, and data is 30$ with no credits.

    Details of my plan, when I signed up as new customer in August 2010:
    $30 - 150 minutes (100+50), 6 pm Early Evenings, My5 Local
    $30 -Smartphone 6 gigs data (iPhone)
    Available but not taken: Call Manager, Call Forwarding, Who Called
    = $60 total
    + fake governement fee.
    + taxes

    Details of my plan, after 1 month:
    $30 - 150 minutes (100+50), 6 pm Early Evenings, My5 Local
    $30 -Smartphone 6 gigs data (iPhone) + APN3CON ($0 add-on APN3-Blackberry.Net W/GPRS)
    $0 - Retention Value Pack - CID, VM10, 2500 text sent, unlimited texts received ($10 - $10 general monthly plan to credit it)
    $0 - 1000 CAN LD ($10 - Feature credit)

    $0 - WhoCalled
    Available but not taken: Call Manager, Call Forwarding

    I got value pack + $10 general monthly plan in 1 call talking about lack of CID and texts in my plan.
    I got 1000 LD feature credit in 1 call about complaining about not calling my family.

    I got nothing in +- 5-6 calls where I was asking about a lower voice plan (was told it did not exist, then told I did not qualify before 6 months) or a credit on data (it was like I asked for something unheard of).

    Well, after resting on my 5 year old retention plan, I finally gave it a go again with good results.

    I simply called explaining I felt I was not coming close to using all the minutes I had and was looking to save money. I was averaging 200 daytime minutes out of a 700 minutes pool since I added R2R and Free incoming.

    I lucked out and spoke with a very understanding and capable rep.

    Old Plan:


    • 700 minutes daytime
    • Free E/W from 6PM - 8AM
    • Free incoming
    • Free Rogers to Rogers
    • 1000 Canadian L/D
    • 6GB Data
    • $20 iPhone Value Pack (CID / VVM / Unlimited SMS/MMS)


    $116 Tax included

    New & improved plan (by improved I mean cheaper!):


    • Removed MMS and down to 2500 SMS only (I don't use MMS)
    • Changed 1000 L/D to 100 L/D ( I don't do much L/D)
    • Removed Visual V/M but kept Standard V/M
    • Everything else stayed the same.

    $73.37 Tax included

    * If I wanted the VVM back it would add $10 pretax.
    ** He was able to credit the SAF for one-year at a time so he said I need to call each year to have them credit it again. Noted in system.

    I got what I was looking for without having to lower my minutes which I was prepared to do.

    Total annual savings: $511.56

    Good luck all.

    Hey everybody, I'm actually new to Rogers after 12 years with Telus. What I did was take over the contract of somebody who was leaving for overseas for an extended period of time. She had like 10 years with Rogers but a terrible plan. I negotiated the following before taking responsibility of the account:

    $35 Unlimited Local Calling Plan
    $30 6GB - $10 discount
    $10 VP (2500 texts/VM/CID)
    $5 100 mins ld - $5.00 discount

    Total: $67 + tax

    I'm paying just as I would have at Telus and I never have to worry about overages again! Rogers FTW!

    Just got off the phone with retention and got the 10 dollars data credit for 6gig data:

    My plan: 17.50 + 10 + 30 - 15 - 10 = 32.50 + 2.58 + tax = 40.25

    Include:
    200 daytime minutes
    Unlimited evening and weekend at 6pm
    Unlimited network calling
    2500 text messages
    Caller id and voice mail
    6 gig of data

    I think this is the plan I ultimately wanted, will not bother retention for a while. I almost felt bad to keep on asking for credit.
    Phone History:
    Sharp 903 (1yr) -> Nokia N73 (4mon) -> Nokia N91 (1mon) -> Nokia n93 (4mon) -> LG Prada (1wk) -> Nokia N95 (3mon) -> LG Viewty (1wk) -> Sharp 903 (5mon) -> Docomo SH906i -> Nokia N95 8gb
