More Rogers iPhone Pricing News – Sneaky Details in the Fine Print

1 Jul ’08

Jevon posts on the iPhone’s ridiculous break fee: “Well, we’ve all been complaining that Rogers’ pricing hasn’t changed much with their new iPhone plans, but now I have proof that they have changed. Instead of a smaller fee like 200$ to break up, Rogers now locks you in for 220$ a MONTH, or $1100, whichever is more.” Yes, that’s right – $1100. My initially mild concern, which only recently mutated to alarm, has now flowered into something bordering on full-blown contempt. Update: as I now read the terms, it strikes me that this could actually be worse than even Jevon suggests. But they’re poorly drafted. I’ll try to parse them later today.
