Meowmix,

 

Do you know if Rogers still throws in the camera grip if you buy it outright?

Hello Kth


No they do not. You have to sign a 2 year agreement with them to get it.


" Offer ends October 3, 2013 and subject to change without notice.

*With new activation on any 2-yr. Talk, text and wireless internet plan having min. $60 monthly service fee.

Offer available to new and existing Rogers customers reserving a Nokia Lumia 1020 between September 15 and October 3 through Rogers Reservation System. Nokia Lumia 1020 must be activated in store within 7 days of receiving the Rogers Reservation System shipment notification"

Re: When is the Nokia 1020 coming to Rogers?

 

I'm confused as to the best way for me to go. A Rogers’s agent didn't even know. I’m on a $80 plan and  I have 30 months left on my contract and $500 on my tab. I water damaged my 920 so I have to get a new phone and it has to the 1020. So signing up for a 2 yr would actually reduce my contract length. However the Roger's agent said in addition to the hefty $500 tab and $200 phone charge, I may also have to pay $12 a month for 6 months because of my contract going from 30 months to 24--they better not charge me that amount too! But it looks like signing up for the contract is the best way for me to go?

Hello Kth


That is a lie. You monthly bill comes more then the $60 minimum and shouldn't have to be bothered. It seems the rep was giving false info once again.

Hello Everyone!

It seems that the Lumia 1020 will be $600 outright from this picture from mobile Syrup!

I thought $600 was too good to be true. $725 it is.

Tried to do the upgrade but failed.   I don't meet the minimum $60.  So basically they told me I can't do hardware upgrade for any smartphone any more unless I change my plan.  Why would I change my plan which is a retention plan?

Well I had a very disappointing experience with my yellow 1020 pre-order. I picked it up yesterday and didn’t even look in the bag until I got back to work. Then I noticed that they gave me a black camera grip. I called them and they told me that is all they have and that I should call customer service to see if I could get it switched. I called customer service and they didn't even know that the camera grips come in the same colours as the 1020s. They wouldn’t give a credit so I could by a proper camera grip so I had return the phone.

 

Rogers was already very late getting this phone so now I'm most likely going to have to skip this generation. I'll reduce my data plan to a bare minimum and just use my backup phone for voice and text for now. I was already on the fence about paying top dollar for a phone halfway through its cycle but pairing the yellow beauty with a clunky black camera grip is just not an option at that price.
