Friends of mine (A and B) just started up a business... Friend A is already with Rogers for her cell, is eligible for upgrade and interested in iPhone 6s. Friend B has been contract free on Telus since June, and also interested in iPhone 6s.
What I would like to help them do is convert A's account to a business account since they are a registered business, and port B's number to it (which would get them a $300 bill credit) on a share everything for business plan, and both get a new 6s 64gb on contract.
Is it possible to convert a personal to business acct? If so, how?
Yeah, generally it should be.
Or if not CONVERT the account.. CREATE the business account, then change the ownership of that line, over the the business account, etc.
Just be warned though..
Business accounts, often at least from my experience, often have better PLANS sometimes that personal ones.
But OTHER things do not always apply. May not have access to some of the other things that a personal account does (roam like home for example). Some credits, etc may not apply on business vs regular. And sometimes the contracts lengths, etc.
Most of all the CRTC changes which recently came out, only apply to RETAIL accounts/phones.
Isn't this the problem with these "back pocket" deals . One rep gives it and someone else sees it and says no it's against the rules and should be deconsolidated. It's just an unhappy customer waiting to happen.
If it's not a potentially unhappy customer in waiting, it means the rules aren't really rules only guidelines.
Problem is, at least from my understanding... is that some people will qualify for specific deals and others wont.
Even though A may call in and get that deal, tell their friend B... B can not get the same deal.
Do they have the same number of services, spend the same amount of $ a month? Have had the service the same length of time?
Apparently all these factor into what promos are made available.
