do u have to get a data plan, cause i dont really need one?
all i need it for is just calling people
Yes, all three require you to sign a data plan. That partially covers the subsidized price.
yeah, you need data to qualify for the lower price
no data = pay more for the device
no data also = pay per use!
You have to get a data plan, but you have an option.. unfortunately, it will cost you some money.
Sign the contract with the iPhone, pay $199/$299 respectively for one the devices.
Then call one of them and cancel data. Rogers/Fido it costs $100 to cancel it, not sure about Bell/Telus (although it's probably the same thing).
This is your only option unfortunately because the reps at the stores have no control over this, no matter how much you kick and scream. So if you want no data, just suck it up and pay the $100 now instead of paying an extra $30/month for data that you won't be using for the next 3 years.
Reps on the phone, on the other hand, do have control over your account (about 99% control I'd say, as they can do absolutely anything), however... being a new customer (I'm assuming since you've asked about the big 3) they won't do much to help.
Oh, and be sure to block all data on your phone!
cant i just use wifi, cause i have wifi at my house
and whats the cheapest data plan i thinks its $20 from telus not sure about bell though
You know, all three companies have websites that spell out the fine print.
Keep in mind too that without a data plan, they charge RIDICULOUS fees for data transfers (paid by the KILOBYTE!) so if you do accidentally enable data (or a friend unwittingly does so) you can expect a HUGE bill.
Yes you can, but they want that extra money from you so they force you to get data.
If you just want a phone and wifi usage, get a cheap-as* cellphone and an ipod touch and save hundreds and hundreds of dollars over a 3 year rogers contract. Iphones aren't cheap regardless of how you do it. Or buy a used unlocked iphone on ebay.
Rogers Phone yes. Text yes. Data no.
I got my wife's insanely cheap rogers phone plan transferred to an iphone (purchased from a friend used). Told rogers to block data just in case. She now has phone, text, wifi data (home and all the other free places). Makes for a great setup (<$35 a month) instead of the ridiculous iphone packages rogers offers. If I am with her and she can't access wireless and needs to check her email/etc., I simply take my iphone SIM card (with 6G data plan) in her phone for a few minutes.
Remember to carry your toothpick/sim removal tool!
