No, I wondered about the missmatch in the amounts between even quantity vouchers and PayGo plans for different amounts myself. You can buy the vouchers in many stores and supermarkets and I thought they were just for the legacy PayGo plans, not the new ones that don't run a balance.
I use the $100 card and it lasts for a year. I am on the $3/month for 30 sent texts and unlimited incoming. They draw the monthly fees out of my balance.
Rogers treat payasyou go customers like ugly redhaired stepchildren.
We may not sign up for heavy plans, BUT, we leave a lot of money at their disposal. Between my coworkers and myself, we figured out Rogers has over $1500 of our cash sitting on our phones.
It's generational I guess. We don't live for our phones and texts but see them as a safety device for when we travel at night from work
@Mikeej8 ... if you paid with $60 worth of vouchers do you not have a balance at the end of the month that will roll over ... to thew next month that will cover the $.75 ... or is it gobbled up by long distance ?
@OLDYELLR ... I didn't realize those were real prices you were using ! What kind of company would price something like that ? That is ignorance beyond comprehension to do that . Each plan priced $.75 beyond a standard voucher payment !
Why is it no one on here that is associated with Rogers can answer questions here ? Rogers mainstream seems to want to disassociate themselves with pay go ... but they still seem happy to collect the money, so how about some official representation here by someone that can speak for the company ?
What is the answer to Mike's question re the $.75 ? it would seem logical that he would have to cover it with an extra $10 voucher .... but where is his change going ?
I just can't believe a company would price something in that manner...
@Mikeej8 ... I'd be running not walking to another company rather than using one of those plans.
Agreed. To me a cellphone is a secondary device to my home phone. It should not cost anywhere near as much per month as my home phone. I't only for the rare occasion I need call someone when I'm out or someone needs to call me. That was the original purpose of mobile phones. Sadly, nowadays a lot of people spend more on their cellphones than they do on their Internet and cable TV combined.
@barndoor I believe @Mikeej8 has a PayGo plan with a fixed price that does not run a balance. There are all kinds of new PayGo plans like that. I tried to sign up for one of these but backed out when my balance would have dropped to zero.
But don't you have to run a bit of a balance ?? What happens if you make a long distance call on those local call plans , they won't put it through ?
How many talk minutes and texts do you use @Mikeej8 ... are those plans really the cheapest way to go ? I know that may sound insulting and I apologize for that but they make it SO complicated to sort through the ins and outs of the plans that I always wonder if I'm using the cheapest way to get what I need .
I tried to sign up for one of these but backed out when my balance would have dropped to zero.
Would one of these not be better than any of those other monthly plans for someone like @Mikeej8 . IF you are going to have the account for more than 3 months ... pay the $ 100 to get unlimited texting for the year and when your local minutes run out just keep adding vouchers as needed till you get to year end ?
I don't use up $100 in one year. After about 3 years I have enough balance to get another year for "free", but I have to call in to get it drawn from my balance. If I used one of the new $100 plans, I'd be paying $100 a year whether I used it or not.
