Sorry .... the point I was trying to make was that  a number of people originally were paying $.25 and it got bumped to   $.50  for whatever glitchy reason ...


Just as an FYI, when I started with PAYGo in 2009 local phone calls were $0.40/min. Changed to $0.45 around 2013 and $0.50 around 2015.  No "glitch" since I received advance notice of the changes via text.  

 

I try to choose my battles with Rogers and this one is not worth it for me, although it may be worthwhile for someone else who uses more, or when a charge goes from $120 to $180, although if it was an "introductory offer" that's totally different. For example, you can currently get huge savings on Internet for a limited time to get you to sign up or increase speed, but it should be no surprise when that offer is over and the price increases dramatically.

Re: 1 year unlimited for $180

Does anyone here know if the $100  plans got grandfathered or was there a forced switch to the $120 and now the $180 ?

I believe I paid $120, so yes it's a big jump in cost from $10 to $15 monthly for a phone I keep for emergencies.  I'm guessing they don't have a senior's discount.  I pay $15/mth for my  home phone and think I'll just not renew.

Re: 1 year unlimited for $180

I had been considering moving our one phone (we have two) from a prepaid plan to a pay as you go, but the price savings are not significant for the 180.00 plan (I have a very basic low end prepaid plan on a loyalty plan), so I have been looking into the companies that piggyback over the Rogers or other major players networks and will seriously consider them instead - I will have to look at the options - my phone really is nothing but emergency - maybe 2-3 calls per month on average, and very few texts.

 

I had been looking at the 100, then it went to 120 and still considered it, but at 180.00 need to very seriously think it through.  For me, 5 dollars a month on a fixed income, my current goal is reduction in overall costs in my life - I carry a cell phone only because of my health.

Since you don't use it much, Rogers does have $10/mo Talk/Text:

If you have a balance when you top up after one year, is that balance added to your top up of $180, or does this plan get 'reset' each year and you start with only $180 each time? Thanks.

Re: 1 year unlimited for $180

How would you top up this plan when the max top up is $100? Thanks.

That $180 plan does not run a balance. It's $180/year. After a year you renew it for $180 (unless it's increased, it started out at $100).

I second that!  A big leap to $180?  

Hoping CRTC notices......
