You are very welcome! 🙂
Thats just it.. you have to gaurantee that its for the right region, etc.. some wont work over here at all (or if they do, only on lower than 3g bands, etc).
Unfortunately androids, at least in north america.. arent sold seperately that often 😞 All the software updates, etc are carrier controled.
Sounds like a good plan.. just start putting pennies away in a fund, to start saving up for the new one for when that one goes 🙂
Rogers is the worst Service Provider in Canada. I called in to upgrade my phone to HTC M9 but they told me if you want to upgrade then you have to change your plan too. Why anybody in the world will pay $125 for the same plan for which I am paying $60 rightnow. If you don't wanna change plan then you can't upgrade. Really passed off at them now have to wait till I get money to buy the phone upright.
We were told the same thing too. They want everyone to upgrade to overpriced Share Everything plans. For us, the simplest solution was to switch providers! And we did!
Another thing to remember if you do NOT take a contract and that is that your Monthly rate is no longer garentee...
A contract not only gets you a discount on a phone but it also locks your Monthly Rate for the term of the contract...
I don't think Rogers has heard of the saying "loyalty over money". Most people who have grandfathered plans like myself are stuck in an unfortunate spot: you either stick with a well-priced plan + keep the same phone or you bite the bullet and pay the high price plans and get a new phone every couple years.
I was just wondering why can't it be the best of both worlds? I've been a client for several years and it feels like a punishment almost, having to buy a phone outright isn't exactly cheap.
