I am being offered the following if I sign for another three years:
Fab 10 Canada wide
200 daytime local
6 pm evenings and weekends local
Unlimited incoming local
CID and VM
$50 toward a BlackBerry
Cost: $55 on a BlackBerry, $60 on any other phone (plus tax)
If I don't resign, I do not get unlimited incoming local and and the hardware credit.
Please note this is a retentions deal - I am already with Bell so there are no port in credits.
I am considering buying my own hardware so I may use the upgrade later this year when I see the new iPhone and BlackBerries.
I am struggling with Bell's current cancellation policies as both Rogers and Telus seem to have policies that are more fair. I feel if I resign, I am in effect supporting Bell's policies. I am not adverse to signing a contract, just wish the terms were more fair.
To directly address your points:
1 - if I gave this impression, please accept my apologies as this is not correct
2 - no port in credit as I'm already with Bell. With respect to selling my phone, I suppose I could get the best phone available as long as it could be unlocked then sell it but then I would be on a $60 plan, possibly using a BlackBerry and paying $5 a month more. I wonder if Bell would give me 10% (loyalty discount) off their current $60 Fab 10 Promo which would make this whole offer much better....
I think Bell has made me a fair offer though. If their current cancellation policies were more fair, I would simply resign and would not have started this thread. I read in the Rogers forum if you resign but don't take the hardware upgrade, the cancellation fee is $12.
Sorry, didn't mean to write a book. Thanks for your input!
