I got my son a new phone and finally figured out how to set up the SIM. I am choosing the $120/ year plan, and I am at the screen for payment, but 1. I still don't have a phone number and 2. Why do i need to choose a top up amount if I choose the $120/yr plan?
Yes, as per my post, Rogers engineers are apparently working on resolving the problem. What I don't understand is why they haven't been able to fix it yet. As you can imagine I'm kind of tired of having to call the Pay As You Go Support line by now.
No one has approached me. Once I notice that my account is depleted, I have to call Rogers Pay As you Go to get the account credited again. Although they're aware of the issue, they apparently still haven't figured out how to resolve it.
@min99 ... I went and googled your issue since you don't seem to be getting any helpful assistance here. I found a couple of old discussions on this same practise on an independent board ...one a year ago and one a little older . The solution seemed to be either live with calling in to correct it or change providers or plans . Seemed a little drastic but sounded like the simplest way to deal with it when it seems to be a long standing issue. Kind of sucks to be stuck in the plan for a year ... but at least you are part way through it.
I do wonder though if there might be either a phone setting on your end or a computer glitch type issue on their end that just won't get resolved unless someone is willing to take the time to sit down and either reboot something or go through your account with a fine tooth comb to see what might be sending things haywire .
If no body is going to step up and actually help though ...your choices are pretty slim .
Good Luck and please come back and tell us if you find a fix .
Well, it's now September. I renewed the plan again for a year and, yet, the underlying problem about time zone billing errors is not resolved!! Rogers is completely incompetent!!

Not sure if this is the correct thread, but...
Just as an FYI for those people on Rogers PAYGo who have been using Auto-Top-up and receiving an additional 10% credit (for example an extra $1 if you auto-top-up $10 each month), this "bonus" apparently ended on November 16, 2017.
I called in when I didn't see it this month and was told that a text was sent out, however, I checked my phone and didn't see a text. No matter, it was nice while it lasted for 3+ years.
Hello again @min99,
Sorry to hear you're still experiencing the same issue with your Prepaid account.
I know how frustrating this must be.
It would be ideal if you spoke with one of our trained Pay-As-You-Go representative.
This would give them the chance to investigate this thoroughly and maybe open a ticket for our Back Office team to look into it, in order to resolve the problem once and for all.
