Sorry im just geyying back to you guys now, my old phone was a sony ericsson text pro with ChatR. I dont have internet at home so my phone is my only source of online. Im just afraid of a phone bill that exceeds the amount I can afford. As of now, I have apparently used 1093mb of data. -facepalm-
Without knowing what phone.. some of the older phones, used a different form of data, that most newer phones.
Alot of them, often would have 'unlimited social networking' etc.. and really didnt use data..
Vs most all phones now, just use raw data, no matter what.. and will eat it up alot more.
If you have no other source of internet.. you may then want to look at upping your data plan, as long as it fits within your budget.. likely still cheaper than paying overages.
I have asked Rogers specifically about this as I have gone over my data plan several times and have gotten two different responses. The last person seemed the most knowledgable so I am going with their response. Data overages are not pro-rated. If your overage rate is $15 per Tb, you are charged the full $15 whether you go over by 2 Mb or the full Tb. However, just because the current offers say the overage rate is $15/Tb, does NOT mean that that is your overage rate. I learned this the hard way. I did not pay attention to the overage rate on my plan. I thought I had purchased what I was seeing online shortly after Christmas (where the overage rate was $15/Tb). But I purchased my plan just before Christmas and just found out that my overage rate is actually $15/300Mb. However, when I first called about being overcharged, the agent I spoke with went on my word and gave me a credit. The second agent wasn't sure and initiated an investigation. Once your current offer is no longer featured online, I have found it very difficult to find out what my overage rate actually is.
That is correct. Once the order is done, it's really hard to find the proper overage rate. The only way to do it is when you sign up for it, take a screen shot of the overage rate and have it so u can remember as reps can change words anytime they like.
I just wanted to be clear about this, because it seems a little odd.
I subscribe to Gamecenter, and it takes approximately a little over a gig of data to stream one hockey game...which effectively puts me over my data limit for one game. And if I'm reading it correctly, it costs $15 per gig for overage...so after the first game, I'm paying an additional $15 for every game I want to watch?
Yes that is what that means. Unless you connect to wifi to watch future games.
I just want to ask that how much does Rogers charge you for data per mb without any data plan?
I don't know. My brother ordered it for me through phone, and i received it 3 three days later so i don't really know
