I was told in June that I was doing an Advance Exchange for a brand new phone out of pocket cost was $250. My phone has always acted weird, and so I called in to see if what I was told was true. It turns out I was given a refurbished phone under the handset protection guarentee, and that my early hardware upgrade fee is still $299.
The advance Exchange is for Refurb phones ONLY. Most likely the phone did cost $250 from that list. You can complain by contacting Rogers & speaking to a Manager but nothing can most likely be done. Try seeing if they can do anything but i doubt they will give you a free brand new phone or anything. They will most likely send you out another Refurb device just like yours.
If you need a faster turnaround, for $35 you can take advantage of our Advance Exchange Program by calling 1 888 ROGERS 1 (764-3771).You will receive a same or like refurbished model within 3-5 business days. Simply return your defective device."

You can alway compalin about it BUT the Manager may not be able to do anything as the program is for Refurb devices only as you can see. They gave you the right list BUT wrong wording by telling you NEW. Also do not hbe mistaken, most Refurb devices are NEW, just only been used once for less then 15 days OR less then 30 minutes of talk time.
