Default Best Rogers Bold corporate plan upgrade deal on a BES?

Please Login to Remove!

Would be interested to hear how others are doing on this. I've been trading calls with my firm's Rogers corporate rep. From the website, it looks like it's $399 for the Bold on a two-year plan, $20 or $26 for voice (depending on the number of minutes) and data plans on BES at $45 for 300MB or $100 for 1GB.

Obviously, that data plan doesn't look so good compared to the $30 for 6GB that's offered to consumers on BIS.

Who's done better? Details?

Am I the only one trying to upgrade to the Bold on a BES?

Nope, I'm using a BOLD with our BES server. I'm on the 1GB plan for $100. I have 4 other BB's on the plan with me. They each pay $25 and have access to the data pool. It's still a lot of $$$ for what it is, but it seems to be the best deal that is open to a small user. Once you get over 10 phones on your account they will start "customizing" things for you.

I've tried too, but no luck. Rogers will not allow 6Gb on a BES service, even though the vast majority of that would always be direct internet access..

But the Bold's messaging client allows me access to the Exchange server's Outlook Web Access directly so I can still access my office emails without the BES. Is this a new feature, because I don't recall seeing this on my 8703 device?

Rogers BES $45 for 300meg right now

Rogers BES $45 for 1gig beginning October 1st

The $30/6gig consumer promo got extended to end of September. This is when this promo gets replaced by the $30/1gig consumer plan. The $30/1gig replaces the $30/300meg plan, and Rogers is going to replace the BES $45/300meg plan with the BES $45/1gig plan.

Get the $45/300meg plan, and call Rogers in the first week of October to switch to the $45/1gig at no penalty.

Source: HowardForums, and several Canadian newspapers. And even a few higher-up Rogers employees have confirmed this.
