Sadly Rogers ul data for 7$ is only for
-rogers branded phone (imei tracking)
-rogers apps on theses phones (opera mini etc will be charged at 5cent/kb)
-wap only via goam.com (not internet.com) for regular phone only (wont work on bb and wm phone that rogers sell).

So basically this new 7$ul data mobile browsing is a complete piece of crap.

What sucks even more is the new bb package
1.5mb of bb data for 15$ or ul email for 15$

Ya got me all excited there for a minute when saw Rogers and unlimited data!

Rogers needs a competitor on the GSM network ............ their only Openents are CDMA.

If you thought the $15/monthly BlackBerry 1.5MB data plan was bad the overages are even worse:

$10/MB for the first 5MB overage
$5/MB for the next 5MB overage
$1/MB for the next 10MB overage
$0.50/MB for any more overages

This plan is absolutely pathetic!! Telus just launched the following:

$15/monthly (Personal Email and IM 15):
Unlimited Email and IM (BlackBerry Messenger)

$30/monthly (Personal Email & IM 30):
Unlimited Email and IM (BlackBerry Messenger)
Unlimited text messaging
Call Display
Voicemail 10

$30/monthly (Personal Email, IM & Web 30):
Unlimited Email and IM (BlackBerry Messenger)
Unlimited Browsing

$45/Monthly (Personal Email, IM & Web 45):
Unlimited Email and IM (BlackBerry Messenger)
Unlimited Text Messaging
Unlimited Browsing
Call Display
Voicemail 10

Before these offers Telus didn't advertise that their $15 BlackBerry plan included unlimited browsing but it was offered to new and existing customers. Those who have it will have it grandfathered in and can keep it as long as they don't remove it from their accounts.

Rogers really needs to step their game up! Telus has become very aggressive as of late but Rogers sees that they can still charge the rates they do as people will pay it! There is no other GSM Carrier therefore they will charge what they want and continue to make large profits off of the data rates. I don't see this changing unless Bell makes similar moves as Telus and/or a large amount of customers port over to a CDMA carrier. Maybe then they will get aggressive with their data pricing.

$7 for unlimited mobile browsing on a Rogers branded handset is a good start but they really need to change their data rates for BlackBerry as well as other smart phones and air cards.
