Were you previously on a contract that may have ended recently?

I used to get free evenings after 6pm, all of a sudden I'm getting an additional charge for "6-9pm unlimited outgoing calls" apprently my contract ended so they put me on a monthly plan that was as close as possible and added the buy down to 6pm.

Rogers sux donkey balls.My cousin in San Jose gets EVERYTHING (unlimited talk,unlimited text,unlimited data) for like $45us.Rogers,Bell,Telus have you by the jewels since they know Canada restrictive telecom laws is so tight it scares away potential large competitors from Europe and the US.Ted Rogers maybe a pioneer buy the monopoly for TV airspace and cell space is his...for now.You know why people are canceling Rogers contract left and right because people are so fed up with insane charge on charges.I rather pick off channels using the old fashion rabbits ears than paying Rogers one red cent for a few interesting channels.

Dude... of course ! wake up !
To breathe clean air, we pay !
Also, Do you not know about emission testing ?
We pay at the gas station to put air into your f'in tires !
We pay for everything, even for the air we breathe !

Rogers is changing there Internet plans as well next month..

http://www.rogers.com/web/Rogers.por...=INTER_HISPEED

They are giving you less monthly usage .. my dad just got a letter today saying his ultra lite is going from 3G to 2G .. his usage was 3-4 in the last couple of months so now hes better off moving up. Its a complete rip off.. who the **** uses only 2G per month knowing the amount of data that you download including ads and bullshit.

-We pay to keep the air clean not the air itself
-You pay for the power that keeps that compressor running and the maintenance behind the compressor
-No one has come up to me after going for a jog and said I used to much air the past 30 minutes here is your air tax sir.

actually if you go ask the gas attendant to put the air "on" because you have no change he will do that for you. Never failed me.

No they havne't. I went through all my bills. Nothing there. So dont talk to me like you know my predicament.

I called them last night after I made my post. Got text deal, and got them to reverse all the incoming text charges.


What I dont understand is how these companies get away with this shit though. They implement the fee for text msgs. Okay, so why not just add the charge on their phone for unlimited incoming text? Like 1$ or something? Why do I have to call and add the service? **** if they are going to reverse the charge anyway when I call and complain then wtf is the point of this shit? OH A I know why, because the people that DONT call and complain foot the bill.

I don't know what to tell you other then you must have missed it. They have to notify you.

Regardless, you now know that you need to have a TXT plan if you want to receive messages no matter what carrier you're with here. And you got the charges reversed. So all is well.
