I think what's he's saying is that Telus is selling the phone at $279 no need to file a rebate, and Rogers $329 but you have the hassle of filling out a rebate. Seems odd. Just sell the phone for $279.
I was told by the Rogers rep at the store that I would recieve an automatic $50 rebate on my 1st bill and that I should also fill out a "mail-in" $50 hardware rebate form online. I have filled out the form as instructed but no rebate ...
