As RogersHassam said, there is a Tab Plan which can get u just data on your device!. You can click on the link or contact Rogers via Live Chat, calling in o visiting a Rogers store!
I may be reading the information at the link wrong, but it appears to be talking about tablets and you must have a share anything plan, so it appears to be an add-on to a plan providing data for your tablet, doesn't mention iPhone.
Correct me if I am reading this wrong, but that seems to be what it is saying on the site.
That is correct, the link provides information on tablet plans, however it is not a must that you have to be on a Share Everything plan.
There is an option for a Flex Rate plan as well.
Click on the "Non-Sharable Plan" tab beside the "Share Everything" tab to get more information.
We offer data plans for various different wireless internet devices as long as it is in our compatible list of devices.
I didnt think that you COULD lock it to a specific piece of hardware.. the sim card itself.
The hardware itself could be locked to a specific carrier, if the phone or tablet was say on Bell, and not Rogers.
I have heard of people who have put a sim from an iphone in a ipad tablet and have it work.. so I dont see why it wouldnt work the other way..
Now, going with a Data only.. he would not have access to TEXTING either.
Only any data based messaging (facebook messenger, skype, etc), imessage to other apple devices would work. but not to any android based texting, etc.
I took the sim card out of my tab-e and put it in my note 8. It does work, but I get charged extra for any phone calls or texts. I have the share everything plan.
How much extra? with fido its $1 per minutes voice and $0.45 per txt , I assume rogers would be similar rates (in case he needs to use it for emergencies)
