A year and a half ago, we signed up for two phones for Nick and Shyla because Shyla was pregnant and needed to keep in touch. She was a high risk pregnancy, so we thought this would be a good idea.
Instead of opting for cheap phones, we allowed the pair to get smartphones on our Rogers plan.
Now we want to get rid of these phones because they are simply too expensive.
Unfortunately, we were told we would have to pay about $1,000 to do so because of the damned phone agreement. This whole debacle has meant that we have severed all ties with Rogers except for the phones. We reduced Shyla's plan to zero and she hasn't had a phone for six months but we're still pay $60 a month for a phone that is basically garbage.
A few weeks back, Scott was phoning in a payment and bitching about the whole mess and a nice young man from Rogers gave us an interesting piece of advice I will share with you now.
If we take our phones in for an upgrade and buy the cheapest phones they have, we can then cancel them, saving $400!
I pass this on to you as yet another example of the ridiculousness of phone plans.
