Speaking of Loyalty

My contract is up in 60 days and I've begun the "negotiation" process. They're so fucken dense it's not funny.

As I've posted here many times, I've got a sweet sweet deal, and now they want to offer me less for more money, A LOT MORE MONEY.

Bloody thieves.

No, I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake.......

And some folks wonder why I've been ranting and raving about Rogers in the past. Just pathetic the way they do business.

Time for the government to step in and charge Rogers a 60% luxury tax on every dollar they rake in. That would make things change in a hurry.

Let us know how it works out.

I guess you're planning on keeping the old(er) phone?

I have a 3GS, they are now claiming that the plan has zero do with the subsidy.

Their big claim right now is "unlimited" incoming/outgoing, which frankly I don't need, I'm at a sweet spot with 300m of day time and unlimited after 6. I also have a 6gb plan which they want an OUTRAGEOUS amount of money for me to keep.

The FUD continues, they claim if I use more the 500mb of data Wind will cut off my service!

Na...not true. The issue with Wind, though, is questionable speed. Sometimes it's fast, sometimes not. Although it is good enough for YouTube and stuff.

Wind starts cutting you at 5GB if you're on their unlimited plan.

I have noticed a difference between Wind and Rogers: 1.2 GB of download with Wind registers as about 900 MB usage. 700 MB of downloads with Rogers usually registers as over 1 GB. That is what I personally found, anyway.

I have wind with unlimited data. Gone over 2gb a couple times and never seen a speed decrease (They have a soft cap). If you never leave their zones it's probably worth it to just switch.

Typically I'm in the zone (so to speak) all the time, I have family outside the zone, which I visit every so often.

I dropped by a Wind Store today to inquire as to their return policy, I'll probably hit them up mid Feb to check out a phone and the service before I tell Rogers to pound sand.

There was some discussion about porting the number out, do I or don't I mention it to Robbers?

If you're out of your contract, don't mention it to RoGeRs. Let Wind port the number for you, let RoGeRs figure it out or call them once you know your number is working...

I got Wind when the had their $29 unlimited plan (local calling and data). I'm doing LD calling using VoIP services. (Basically make a long distance number local to you) I started with VoIP.MS but also trying this: »www.localphone.com/services/local_numbers -- it works very different from VoIP.MS (since they give you your OWN number -- which is forwarded to my frequently called numbers) with the link provided, they have shared numbers which basically reads your caller ID (or if you input PIN from an unrecognized phone). However, you can create as many contacts as you want. 5 cent for SMS message, 1 cent per minute calling. So if I call (519)-578-0944 it will be forwarded to (419)-893-5565 (your number) but if someone else calls that (519) number, it might forward to (212)-738-0922, that would be Katherine Heigl's number. (and please don't try calling it)

I mention this because you're a cheap bastard. Like me. Their $40 plan is unlimited everything, so that $11 extra may be worth it for you..(unlimited everything includes calling your redneck friends in Mississippi.

Anyway: Wind Bill




Rogers Bill (2 services, Wind had two services on on Bill)

So if you don't like being ripped off but instead receiving good deals you're a cheap bastard?

Jeff is being sarcastic, my fiscal postings in Canchat/Politics speak volumes to my cheapness.
