[LTE] Don't pay for that LTE SIM card upgrade

Just upgraded my phone to LTE and the store I went to wanted $10+tax to pay for the SIM card. It's very clear here

»www.connectedmagazine.ca/how-to/···hecklist

that it says clearly that they will "provide one free of charge".

Rogers policy is to give out SIMs for free if they are activated on your account in store. If you choose to take the SIM and activate it at home, $10 charge applies.

Rogers Plus or dealer? Dealers don't always follow Rogers' guidelines on what they are supposed to do. They're definitely supposed to supply you with a card when activating a phone to a plan.

How is someone, by the way, going to know that the Rogers store they enter is not a Rogers store? I mean, I am talking about the average person. They do not know that you need a Rogers+ rather than a Rogers store.

True and they are supposed to work the same way (from the POV of the customer). But some dealers just don't always do things by the book.

Rogers+ will give you a free SIM when doing a HUP or New activation. All other situations its $10

Are LTE sims really different? I remember them saying you needed a 3G sim when the 3G service first came out... I continued to use my Sim card from 2001 with my iPhone 3G/3GS, and it would have probably still worked in the iPhone 4 if i had cut it down.

LTE Sims have a larger storage capacity compared to non LTE Sims. Im not sure how that enables faster speeds but I know the billing system will not auto provision an account for LTE access without an LTE sim.

If it's not a Rogers store then they shouldn't be putting a big red Rogers sign in front. If you put a Rogers sign you're a Rogers store and have to accept what comes with it, if not put up your own third party sign or dealer sign.

Goto a Rogers store - not a Rogers store
Get a free sim card - it's $10
It's available in your area - It's not really available right now.

Leave it to Rogers.
