    Default [Rogers] iPhone Data Plans Leaked

    From iClarified.com
    Apple News | Rogers iPhone Data Plans Leaked?
    Thursday, 19th June 2008, 10:06 am
    A Rogers employee data sheet for the 3G iPhone has been leaked onto the Internet and posted on ehmac.ca.

    Rogers and Apple today announced that the iPhone 3G will be available in Canada on July 11. iPhone 3G combines three products into one small, lightweight device: a revolutionary mobile phone, a widescreen iPod, and it puts the Internet in your pocket with the best e-mail, web browsing, search and maps applications ever on a mobile phone.

    The new version of the iPhone harnesses the power of Rogers's broad and powerful 3G mobile broadband network, which offers 3G mobile phones download speeds of up to 1.4 Mbps.

    Key Device Features:
    Operates on Wi-Fi, EDGE, and 3G networks
    New enterprise e-mail capability with support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync
    New iPhone software development kit (SDK) to support new innovative applications

    New Activation Process and Return Policy:
    The iPhone 3G will be activated at point of sale when the device is purchased, in store. The Fido grace period will change from 15 days to 30 days and will require the device to be returned to place of purchase before service is cancelled. The 30-day Rogers grace period will remain unchanged with the exception of no limits being imposed for voice or data usage.

    Pricing and Plans
    Device Pricing:
    $199 8GB and $299 16GB for new activations and qualified upgrades with existing 2 or 3-year agreements.

    Data Plans and Pricing:
    The iPhone 3G will be activated on existing Rogers and Fido voice rate plans, but new data plans have been created for the 3G device.

    All iPhone 3G customers are required to have one of the new data plans and qualifying voice plan.
    Customers intending to use the iPhone 3G for access to corporate e-mail, business applications, or access to corporate intranet are required to activate with Enterprise Data Plan for iPhone.
    SUP service discounts for both voice and data plans will apply to iPhone 3G.
    RAC service discounts for voice and data will apply to iPhone 3G, when on a qualifying data plan.
    Ambassadors will not get a discount on device purchase for iPhone 3G.
    Data Pricing will be as follows:

    Consumer Data Plan (must be added to qualified voice plan):
    $30 - Unlimited Data (E-mail/Web), includes Visual Voicemail when subscribed to any voicemail service.

    Enterprise Data Plan (must be added to qualified voice plan):
    $45 Unlimited Data with personal and corporate e-mail, web, includes Visual Voicemail when subscribed to any voicemail service.

    Upgrade Eligibility and Qualified Upgrade Pricing
    Upgrade eligibility will be determined based on standard upgrade eligibility rules. Customers must be upgrade eligible to receive the qualified upgrade pricing. However, not all customers will be qualified upgrades. Rogers has not determined the price of the 3G device for non-qualified upgrades.

    All customers will be required to sign a 3-year agreement. There will not be a "no commitment" price or a 2-year agreement for the iPhone 3G.

    Activation Process
    The new 3G device will be activated in store in Rogers, Fido and Apple stores. Customers must accept Rogers and Apple terms of service, sign a 3-year agreement, and select the data plan for the iPhone 3G before leaving the store. A short tether process to unbrick the 3G device will be performed in all Rogers and Fido stores (tether cords will be provided). Apple stores will also perform this tether process, however in the event that a customer's device is not tethered in the Apple store, their device will be inoperable until they get home and tether through iTunes. Prepaid will not be allowed on the iPhone 3G device.

    RAC tools, including TOE and Salescentral have been modified to allow agents to enter customer's information, select rate plans and data plans, device price (if applicable) and output a document that will allow store reps to quickly access the customer's information and save time for data entry in the activation process.

    Compensation
    Because the 3G device will only be activated in store, compensation for the 3G device will be BAU. RAC reps will receive compensation for upgrades and new activations with a 3-year agreement.

    Purchase Limit
    The device purchase limit will be three (3) per customer for iPhone 3G in Rogers and Fido stores.

    Direct Fulfillment
    The DFU tool will be available at launch at RAC for iPhone 3Gs. Customers will be required to pay for the device when the order is placed and the phone will be shipped to the store in the customer's name for pickup.

    Return Policy
    The return policy for Fido iPhone 3G is changing from 15 days to 30 days for both Apple and Fido stores. The 30-day Rogers grace period will remain unchanged with the exception of no limits being imposed for voice or data usage.

    To cancel service within the first 30 days, the customer must return their equipment to the place of purchase (no exceptions).
    If the customer cancels service after 30 days, they will be charged the ECF and DECF. The customer is not required to return the device to cancel after 30 days.

    Merchandising/Marketing
    3G demos will be pulled from stock when they arrive following launch process for display devices.
    Video loop content will be pushed to stores when it is available.
    The following merchandising elements will be in stores for launch:

    Rate brochure and display rate card
    22 x 28 poster
    Window banner

    Training
    Device training, including features and functionality, will be available via Library and Fidoversity by 6/30.
    Training for all representatives will begin no later than 7/1.
    Launch preparedness training, including last minute details, will be conducted the week of launch (if needed) by team leaders.
    Communications/Library
    All iPhone-related communications, inclusive of training announcements, will be posted to Library. Search on keyword "iPhone 3G" to locate.

    Launch Plans
    Support logistics for launch day will be available:

    Letters will be sent to all landlords under VP/GM signature for advance notice of store hours, crowds expected, possible parking issues, etc.
    Security will be provided for locations requesting armed police or unarmed, uniformed guards.
    Manager checklists will be provided to support managers to set expectations and help them be prepared to complete all required actions.
    Documents will be posted on TGP to let managers know when to expect delivery of launch support materials.
    Job descriptions for key launch day functions will be provided for: Back Office Manager, Crowd Manager, Greeter, Product Demonstrator, and Security Support.

    Wow. Quite detailed, and some interesting tidbits. Dictatorial marketing bordering on fascism, but hey, they know we want it bad.

    Could it be if you're a Rogers corporate customer you have to take the $45 plan, but if you're on a regular consumer plan you can take the $30 plan?

    Otherwise I can't see how it makes a difference if you use your iPhone to check corporate email

    Rogers employee here <-

    We just received an update through salescentral with updates to all data plans.
    Previously we had: 15-1.5mb, 25-4mb, 40-7mb, 60-25mb
    We not have: 15-4mb, 30-300mb, 60-1GB

    While this is NOT a confirmation on the iPhone data plan listed above, it is a greatly increased data plan that is in affect NOW. Unlimited data for the iphone for $30 isn't that unimaginable.

    This seems legit. But $30 unlimited data plan with rogers? I would have to say, Rogers wouldn't put anything under $50-60 based on their prices now. eh, maybe its a change. If it is $30, that would be insane.
    Thumbs up if i helped.

    I think $30 is possible too because it sounds like it will only be available to iPhone owners, and being forced onto a 3 yr agreement = $1080 in their pocket.

    my cousin works at Rogers... she's a paper pusher ( no work experience ) SHE earns between 50-55K annually working there in the office. Rogers employees get paid pretty well from what she tells me. i would imagine $30 a month for unlimited data is too good to be true. in my eyes Rogers is just like any other company and wants to maximize its profits and take adavantage of anyone willing to pay premium dollar for a hot item such as the :iphone:

    But if you pay $30.00 a month for 30 MB of data that will cripple your iphone 3G
