Re: 1 year unlimited for $180

That's interesting.. yeah it doesn't really imply if it does, even in the more details

The only thing in the more details says, that

"Sent/received premium texts (alerts, messages related to content and promotions), sent international texts/picture/video messages and sent/received text/picture/video/IM/email (as applicable) while roaming not included and charged at applicable rates."

Premium, international and roaming picture/video, is not included..

Re: 1 year unlimited for $180

Obviously texts with graphics and videos would use a lot more data. When I had my old Nokia dumb phone and someone sent me a picture, the text would include a URL and I could go on line with my computer and get it.  I have data turned off on my LG smart phone and when I receive a text with a picture I don't see it and there's no URL. I have to enable data to get the picture and I get charged extra for that.  I have a dollar balance on my account and that's where the charge comes out of.  I don't know how that would work with a $180/year prepaid account.

Hello @melina12,

 

Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums! Cat Happy

 

The 1 Year unlimited Pay As You Go plan is a great deal for those who prefer Prepaid over Postpaid phone lines.

 

I can confirm that the 1 year $180 Pay As You Go plan includes unlimited text, picture, and video messaging in Canada and includes data only devices.

 

I hope this helps!

 

Regards,

Data plan required for MMS for unlimited prepaid plan?

 

Hi,

 

I know this has been asked, but I didn't understand the answer.  I'm looking at Roger's prepaid unlimited promotion for an iPhone (for my child):

 

http://www.rogers.com/web/content/wireless-products/paygo_promotions_monthlydiscount

 

I'm not clear whether I would get be able to use MMS (in particular, to send/recieve pictures) or would that require getting a separate data plan/add on.

 

Thank you

@notre

 

I read the link they provided you, and like you, I see no clarity on the question of Canada MMS - I know that on all smart phones now, you have turn turn on mobile data and on standard plans you don't actually need data - as most of the plans allow you to access the data network to send pictures, while text alone is on the cellular network.

 

The details speak to costs for text and picture messaging when roaming, but only says text

 

As the notes say, "sent international texts/picture/video messages and sent/received text/picture/video/IM/email (as applicable) while roaming not included and charged at applicable rates."

 

So it says that international sent text/picture/video is additional cost (not part of the unlimited text offer), and same sent or received when roaming.

 

So your question is from my view of your information posted is you are trying to understand if you need data add-on.

 

Based upon @RogersTony answer

 

I can confirm that the 1 year $180 Pay As You Go plan includes unlimited text, picture, and video messaging in Canada and includes data only devices.

 

it would appear that as long as you are using it in Canada, you don't need data, but it would also apply to a data only device, say like a tablet.

 

Hope that helps - maybe @RogersTony can clarify further for you.

Re: 1 year unlimited for $180

Hi,

 

I am thinking of getting this for my kids. Just wondering if it will allow them to incur overages? for example the plan includes 50 daytime min for the whole year. Can my kid go over this limit and incur overages?

Hello, @Akaz

 

Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums! Smiley Happy

 

Thank you for joining and posting your query in the Community. It's a great question, I would have wondered the same. Yes, the plan allows you to incur overages provided you have already topped up the account anticipating the overage. In other words, say if there are no funds in the account after 50 daytime minutes are used you will not be able to make/receive calls during the daytime. 

 

Cheers,

RogersMoin

Re: 1 year unlimited for $180

I paid $130.00 last year for the same plan. Ho is it even legal to jump prices so much. I am putting in a complaint with the CRTC there is no way you can get approved to increase prices this much.

Why .... ?    If you can't find a better deal elsewhere, then that explains why Rogers put the price up .  If you can , then why do you want to fight to stay with Rogers ?
