Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
Hi, I have checked my Flex Tab online and my balance show $0.00 and says I can upgrade anytime. I call Rogers to check on upgrade and they say I am not eligible to upgrade, very confused. I am a Rogers Business client for over 10 years and would really like the new Blackberry Z10.
With the flex you should alway be able to, no matter when, as long as you pay off the hardware subsidy, if there is any left.
The rep should have at lead said no you can't upgrade right now unless you pay X amount if there was any.
I think you may have got a bad rep, I would try another call, or go into a store and see what they can pull up.
Rogers still uses both measures in their systems, however if you have a flex tab (I.e Signed a contract after January 2012) you will be charged the EHUP Fee and credited the difference between the EHUP and the flex tab. E.G $200 EHUP, 150 flex tab remaining. In this case you would see a charge of $200, with a credit of $50 on your next bill. I Hope this Helped you out 🙂
If your last upgrade was before Jan 2012 you fall under the old early upgrade calculation. If it was after Jan 2012 then the flex tab calculation applies.
On my tab, it says I have 12 months to go and around $50 to pay off. Does that mean I have to pay off just $50, or is there something calculation with the 12 months I have to work out? (for context I bought the iPhone 5 2 years ago back when 3 year contracts were the norm).
It looks something like this
Months Remaining in FLEXtab Agreement:
That means your upgrade fee aka cancellation fee is $50. Lets say you get a iPhone 5S for $100 th.e upgrade is $50 & then your months bill. So to upgrade to the iPhone is $150 + your months bill all together.
So basically I broke my iphone 4s a few days ago and am looking into getting the new iphone 6.
I was looking at my flex tab and it has a balance of 170 on it. Would I have to pay the 173 AND the price of the phone
on the day that I go in and get my phone? OR does it come on my next billing cycle? so confused.
Nope you do not. It all gets billed into ur next month's invoice. You don't pay anything at the store when doing a upgrade
