    So some people know about my situation with my phone. Stopped working, and I was paying 74.95 a month for a phone that stopped working. I got it sorted out today, signed up with a different company, got a new phone. There's a bit of a long story ahead, so it'll be spoilered. But if you're in Canada, I highly suggest you avoid Rogers at all costs. They will do nothing but rip you off, and try to take advantage of you.

    That one was a bit wordy, but it was a looong time, about 2-3 hours on the phone with them catching them in their lies and them breaching their own contract. So I'll only be paying 380 with tax, plus the 2-3 days of the service I'll be under, so it's about 390 or so.

    Long story short, if you're in Canada, get away from Rogers. Don't let them scam you. Do some shopping, there are better services. Virgin Mobile offered a much better deal, WITH NO CONTRACT!

    Ain't that the god damn truth!

    I had a spat with them over data usage and threatened to go to sprint. They told me I'd have to pay the contact cancalation fee. I told them go ahead and charge me but you can get blood from a stone. They caved.

    At least it wasn't bell... but ya Virgin is a good company. I eventually switched to solo though cause it was weirding me out how It was giving me coupons for the body shop and saying they loved me.
