Pay As You Go plan changes

I have 2 pay as you go phone. No too long ago, I updated one of my phone plan to 'By the minute - All day talk'.
Now, I want to switch the other one to this plan also. But I no longer seeing this plan.

Does rogers remove this plan?

But there is only one Talk Anytime by minutes plan now, rather than a few in the past, right?

Hello again @quickpick

 

Athough the rates may have been different in the past, we always only have one Talk Anytime plan available.

 

You can visit the web page, indicated in my last post, to access the details of the current monthly plans you can also choose from.

Re: Pay As You Go plan changes

I only use by minutes in the past couple years. 
If I switch to monthly or yearly plan, I am confused how it works exactly.

Say I switch to $120 by year plan. It says, besides weekend/evening unlimited, I will have 50 free mins and any extra minutes costs 50 cents, there there is a  recurring $120 per year.

So, if I switch the plan and pay $120 into the account, would I get $120 in my account balance and use it for all the extra minutes? Or it will just zero balance and I will get blocked in the weekday if I use up all the 50 free minutes?

Hello @quickpick

 

When you get that $120/year plan, what you see is what you get. There is no balance left because the $120 goes for the plan. You have to determine yourself if what the plan is best and most economical for how you use your phone. There are also monthly talk, text, data plans.

 

Your other option is the plans that run off a balance, deducting from it call, text and data charges at the going rate. You get those either by purchasing a voucher or paying on line. They are all good for 1 month, except the $100 one, which is good for a year. They all carry forward any balance left so long as you renew before they expire. In fact, if you have, say a balance of over $25 remaining, you can call and renew for another month for $25, deducting from the balance.  I get the $100/year plan and after a few years I've had a balance of over $100 or $200 and I've use $100 of it to renew for another year. That's the most economical way if you use your phone infrequently.

 

Edited to add:

 

The balance plans are not easy to find on the Rogers site because the other plans are the bigger money makers. Here is the link:

You can also get them in many stores, except maybe the $100 one.

Re: Pay As You Go plan changes

Hi everybody, I currently have the $100/year Unlimited Canadian Text messaging plan.
Shortly afterwards, Rogers had then released the $120/year annual plan that includes both unlimited texting and unlimited evenings and weekends call. Is it possible to switch to the new plan without paying the full $120? Thanks for your input.

Hello @VW2014,

 

Thank you for your post and Welcome to the Forums!

 

It would be my pleasure to help you shed some light on this situation.

It is possible for you to change your Prepaid plan before the whole year is over.

The way it works is that you would have to pay the prorated difference.

For example, let's say you renewed your yearly plan 2 months ago by adding a voucher worth $100, however you think that our actual plans are better for you.

 

You would get credited for the amount of time left to the year (for the $100/yr plan, the credit would be equivalent to approximately $83.33, if you renewed 2 months ago), and then you would be charged for the new plan for the amount of time left before it expires (it would be $100, for the $120 plan, for 10 months). You would therefore have to add enough money to be able to cover the prorated difference.

 

Simply get in touch with one of our representatives if you would like to take advantage of one of our new plans!

To get it touch with our Prepaid department, dial 1-800-575-9090. To reach an agent choose option 4 then option 4 again.  At the end of the information on how to contact Rogers, you will be given an option to speak with one of our agent (option 1).

 

Hope this helps!
