Canadian iPhone plans
The end of September has brought an end to a Rogers/Fido iPhone offering of 6GB of data for $30 CAD, which is being replaced with two new subscription options. The revised plans are slightly different than rumored ones, and come at a cost of either $60 or $75 per month. On the $60 plan users will get 250 daytime minutes, 1GB of data, 75 sent text messages, Visual Voicemail, and unlimited evenings and weekends (9PM to 7AM on Rogers, 7PM to 8AM on Fido). Additionally, Fido customers get unlimited network calling and billing by the second.
The $75 plan includes 400 daytime minutes, 2GB of data, 100 sent text messages, Visual Voicemail, and unlimited evenings and weekends. Fido customers will also get unlimited network calling, unlimited long-distance network calling and billing by the second.
Rogers and Fido also offer two different Value Packs that can be added on top. The $15 pack includes call display, WhoCalled, 2,500 texts, Caller Ring Trax and 2,500 call-forwarding minutes. The $20 Pack has all of the same features, but ups the text message limit to 10,000, and adds 6PM early evenings for Rogers customers, and 5PM early evenings on Fido.
