Does anyone know if the new Rogers theme is available if the alx file is edited?

Monthly is $499. 1 year is $499. 2 years is $449. 4 years is $349.

But it depends on the plan. Some plans only allow 2 or 3 years option (online at least). For example, the 25meg+350mins only give 2 or 3 year options. The 200meg data plan you can pick 1,2,3 years. A 400 minute digital 1 rate allows you to pick a month-to-month. Some cheaper plans raise the 2-3 year prices by $100, but most keep the structure in my first sentance...

Some plans are missing - it doesn't seem to support the 25+25 with 350 min plans (i.e., none of the "double data for $5 more" plans).

I tried picking the 400 min digital 1 rate, but then it won't let me pick a data add-on afterwards :(

Ug, I give up. What a crap website, errors, timeouts, bugs in the plans, yadda yadda...

I just can't seem to make a plan work for my needs on Rogers. I want to be able to combine data and a Digital One rate plan and they just don't seem to want to accomodate it.

I am using a modified .alx file with my at&t branded BlackBerry Curve and I have the new Rogers theme on mine.

I had the same problem when I signed up with my Pearl. You'll need to go to a store - they can finagle it for you there but there are still no data bundles available with the Digital One plans. Good Luck.

do you know if a data plan is required to qualify for the 2-3 yr upgrade?

I have a pearl now and i was gonna have my gf upgrade her plan (without data) to get the curve and then take that and swap my sim card.

Rogers store in the concourse level of the Exchange Tower downtown Toronto has tons of them. Just picked one up.

don820 06-07-2007 11:04 AM

worktrader -- thanks, I'm checking into some places now... Can you elaborate on how they worked it out? I can't wait to try to figure this out with the local pimply 18 year old teens working at the local rogers... :cry:

asdf37 -- I'm not sure locking into a longer contract qualifies as an "upgrade" :razz: Seriously though, you should go through the first few steps on rogers.com -- they don't ask for personal information until the absolute last step, so you can play with the options. I could find no rhyme or reason between the plans and what discounts it offered. It is truely a horrible mess.

MANY thanks for this thread! As soon as I saw you mentioned that it's up in the Rogers.com site, I called around to two stores in my town. One didn't receive any - duh! The other had only two in stock, so I zoomed down to grab it. Now I'm sooo fricking in LOVE with my Curve!

BBpixie 06-08-2007 07:33 AM

Sweet Curve!
 
Have had the curve since yesterday - it's a damn sweet phone!! No problems with it whatsoever. The camera function is fricking awesome - clear, sharp, sending and receiving - no probs, as well with other functions. LED flasher is fine and bright. I guess I got a perfect one! Too bad that others are having problems with it but hopefully they get it fixed somehow. That's all from me to report.

Love the differences between the 8800...

- more tactile keyboard (I instantly found it easier to type)
- 3.5mm jack
- full screen video
- more user friendly and intuitive music/media player
- seemingly sturdier construction
- camera takes great shots (in good light)

however, annoyed by...
- must remove battery to remove microSD card
- missing GPS
- no swivel case included

Hobbesgsr 06-08-2007 09:29 AM

Also quickly A-B'd the 8300 against my Meizu M6 player and found the audio output to be excellent. It's all in the headphones! The OEM 8800 headphones are absolute crap.
