Am I mistaken or is there nowhere on the Rogers site that tells you that the $5 daily Roam Like Home charge is per line? I looked everywhere for that before I took the plunge, changed my plan to a Share Everything and ported my second phone number over from another provider.
I honestly thought that the "Share Everything" included the roaming access with the Roam Like Home plan on all devices that are part of the plan. Naive? Perhaps, but the dual $5 charges on my first bill were a shock.
Rogers - maybe you should think about changing the name of the plan to "Share Almost Everything".
Sure would have been nice to even have some fine print somewhere on the web site that would have indicated this sneaky bit of accounting Tom-foolery...

Welcome to the Community :)!
Roam Like Home daily fee is per device and will be triggered once every 24 hours. You are only charged when you make or receive a phone call, send an SMS/MMS, or use data i.e. browse, maps or an application.
If you haven't made or received a phone call, sent an SMS/MMS or used data you will not be billed for connecting to Wifi.
Hope this helps!
Best way to TRY and avoid this..
A) Remove the sim.. with no sim in the phone, it cant connect to the cellular network. But you still should be able to connect to wifi where its available.
B) Bar doing A.. put it in airplane mode.. this SHOULD disable it from connecting to cellular at all (though in some casses i have seen people say that it still did, just a tiny bit). You can usually turn wifi back on while in airplane mode, to then connect to wifi.
had the same problem last year and after complaint that is what they sell me (MAX $5.00 per day 10 days max) never told me that my hot spot would be charge 10 days also at $5.00 they refund me and let me have it for 6 month. This year i saw that they haven't change their web site but i don't care anymore i used my phone as a hotspot and my contract is coming out in august..... Telus is now offering a better deal ( 2 country 1 account no itiniary anymore and cheaper then Rogers) so i guess they will lose a 10 years client soon..... Wake up ROGERS
