After spending a few horus trying to talk to someone this week about a phone hardware upgrade, my latest experience is 58 mins without being able to speak to someone who can help me: 3 people so far who shuffled me on to another wait. Thanks but no thanks. I'm about 1 more call from changing provider.
Apparently with my current premium plan I can upgrade to an iPhone 8 for $349. If I change to a premium plus 2 year plan for $10 more a month, I can get the same phone for $99. So, 2 years times $10 extra per month = $240 + $99 = $339 for the new phone. versus $349 on my existing plan. So I save $10 in 2 years which equals 42c a month saving. Am I missing something or is that really as dumb as it looks?
My phone bills were close to $2k over the last 12 months and that's all you can do for me?

Cilio - first thing you can do is tell Rogers to staff up and stop keeping people twiddling their thumbs for an hour stuck in a "customer service" phone tree (and customer service isn't what i'd call it hence the quotation marks), and then having to speak to people who clearly don't know what they're doing. I spent close to 80 minutes on the phone yesterday, including twice being sent to the wrong department, until I was finally put in touch with someone in Canada in customer retention - the very helpful and polite April. She was the only person I spoke to who knew what they were doing. She has actually saved me money, organized for a new phone for me, and seemed genuinely willing to help defuse my intense frustration at Rogers' customer service. My phone bills during 2017 added up to $2,272 including work related travel. I'd expect better treatment. Ralph 71
