UPDATE: Rogers has posted early-cancellation fees for their already ridiculously expensive iPhone price plans, and not surprisingly they appear at first glance to be stratospherically high: (ii) $1100 or (iii) $220 per month remaining in the service agreement, to a maximum of 400
The 400 there, as well as this thread on iPhoneinCanada.ca, makes it look like a typo -- ironically Rogers money grabbing reputation is what probably made people think otherwise initially.
UPDATE 2: Yup, it was a typo. $100 and $20 were (and now are) the correct figures. Ouch. Could Rogers have picked a worse time to be sloppy about their dollar figures? If nothing else, it certainly increased the scrutiny they were already under.
Now, if only Rogers would fix the typos on the data rate plans. I'm sure it's not really supposed to read $115 for 2GB, but $30 unlimited, right?
Thanks to rwwilliams for letting us know they fixed it!
Confederation Day, the day when everyone from Pacific to Atlantic, from frozen north to the US border, came together and voiced their common disgust for... GSM monopoly Rogers/Fido iPhone 3G data plans.
We've already covered them, of course. And the reactions to them, domestic and in news reports from the US and Europe. And Rogers' PR panic, involving everyone from their VP to outside contractors sending out spin as ineffective as it is impenetrable. Heck, even Crackberry.com is feeling our pain!
One local petition, ruinediphone.com, hoping for some rate plan redress, has now reached 22,000+ signatures (though it did go down, and has since come up, though scattered reports indicate those who use Rogers for their internet connection can't get to it... hmmm...)
Will it have any effect? Common sense and international embarrassment hasn't, but there's still just over a week until launch day on July 11, so there's still time for Rogers to come to their senses.
Little help, Ted?
And for those non-Canadians curious about our holiday, those who appreciate pointed humor, or just those who want to skip to 3:25 for a healthy dose of Rogers hate, please enjoy the video following after the break:
