Silver 64GB 6+
HUP means Hardware Upgrade Program. Its just a short form that they call it HUP instead of the full name.
Yes its true you have to upgrade your plan to a current $80+ (and thats just the base plan, it doesnt count if you have add-ons) and I'm VERY irrate about it. I barely use long distance and I now see no value whatsoever in being on a 2 year term as it will be less expensive to just buy the device if you can afford it up front. Many people spend that kind of money on a laptop every couple of years and moving forward, that is the way I'm going to have to look at getting a phone. In the 21st century people are using more and more data/texting and less minutes, yet all newer plans seem to focus on the polar OPPOSITE of this well known/yrs old trend. As of today, I would have to spend $25 more per month to get the data I have now - a couple of weeks/months ago a 6GB plan was like $110!!! Rogers was positioning 2yr plans as 'listening to our customers' when we all knew it was actually forced on them by the CRTC - I wish Rogers (and other carriers) would listen to their customers and tone down the price with better values in data. A year ago - you only needed to spend $50/month on your base plan and new device pricing was almost the same for those phones (EG a 64GB iPhone 5s was just under $1000) as they are for the iPhone 6 and 6+ now. So what is the justification for this?
Ok - rant over. Sorry. Phew.
Conclusion - I want to get an iPhone 6+ too, but I think its smarter/cheaper to just buy it outright if you can at this point and keep your old plan as long as you can if you see more value in it then the current ones.
