Yeah no kidding.

That's not the worse part either.

Rogers recently changed their policy from 24 months to qualify for a hardware upgrade, to 30 months.

And if you want an early upgrade, you have to pay $20 * months remaining on your contract.

For example, say I want a hardware upgrade after a year.

24 months left in the contract.

24 * 20 + $159 = $639!!!!

That's why 2 weeks into my contract, I'm already thinking about 3 years down the line, LOL.

I voted for NP, but I'm thinking you should go iPhone 4S too, could resell the iPhone 4S like you said and get NP further down the line or a different phone. iPhone 4S is a good phone still so it's not like you're using a really old phone for a few months.

Rogers plans and pricing are certainly going down the drain.

its probably to recoup on the cost to expand into LTE. Still, it ends up on the customers bill.

I'm guessing you've tried going through retentions department and gave them an ultimatum of leaving unless they give you better plan/phone options?

I'd go for the iPhone now and then resell it later if you want the Prime. As much as I personally want the Prime myself I plan on getting the iPhone and then deciding what I will pick once the Prime is out and I plan around with it a bit.

To be honest, I have no complaints about my plan. It's actually pretty good for Rogers standards. It only took a month of talking with Retentions to get LOL. I took over someone's plan, since new customers get ZERO credits upon sign up.

250 Day time, My10 Canada Wide, Unlimited E/W @ 5p.m., Unlimited Messaging, Unlimited Incoming, 1000LD minutes, CID / VM value pack, Call forwarding, Detailed billing, forget what else. All for $28 a month taxes in.

Adding 1GB data will cost $20, already noted, 6GB will be $30 with no credits though.

Retentions has gotten very stingy these days, thanks to that Red Flag Deals Retention thread.

OH - btw - the EVO 3D is also FREE right now.

Yes it is!

That's what I ultimately want.

Rogers has been dropping the ball recently though.

They didn't get the GS2 right away, and if we get the prime 4 months after U.S. release, it's going to mess up my credits when it comes to renewal.

Oh wait, I just remembered, I'd be eligible for renewal after 30 months. hmmmm

iPhone 4S or Nexus Prime. I wouldn't really consider a RIM phone at this point since they haven't really done any innovative things at all forever.

Both are great phones, it's just if you like Android or iOS better. Personal preference, really.

I'm not a fan of Apple's business practices, so it's hard for me to support them.

With that said, I'm getting the 8900 curve for free for a temp phone.

It's just not clear to me when the Nexus Prime is coming to Canada.

My other choice is the EVO 3D, which too is FREE right now until the end of October. Seeing it compared to the Galaxy S2, the GS2 is better all around.

The 9810 is out of the question now, wish I could update the poll to add the EVO 3D.
