Wow that is a really steep subsidy curve. Over 300 extra to go from 3 year to 2 year plan.

mythos13 says:

By Canadian standards (where the big 3 carriers are allowed to operate in an environment of unfettered collusion), that is an excellent price. Yet I feel Rogers is missing an opportunity to participate and get in the halo of what AT&T is doing right now.
Rogers is doing the most at supporting Windows Phone but can you believe they still list Windows Phones under Windows Mobile and to make matters worse they don’t even offer any Windows Mobile phones any more.

Wow I'm glade I'm in America that's crazy prices

mythos13 says:

The US has better pricing but carriers that are just as bad in different ways, but it may finish just above Canada for 2nd last on a ranked the list of countires with the best wireless industries.

dnlbntl says:

So +US$80 and shipping to have Nokia centered on ones phone…just might be worth it. :-)

dtboos says:

wow Canadian carriers gouge you hard with pricings for 1yr/2yr.

blackprince says:

yeah the CRTC assisted but reaming we get from the Big 3 sucks but what can you do? We have no competition per say outside of the larger cities like Vancouver and Toronto so we are stuck.

mythos13 says:

But what I find worst of all is the fact that our plans are not any cheaper if we buy our phones outright. The prices on 1 and 2 year contracts are useless and probably do not get any takers. So bascially we are forced into paying for full data plans for 3 years that cost the same regarless if we get a $750 phone through them or bring our own.
How does it work in other countries if you buy your phone elsewhere--can you get cheaper monthly plans if you do?

emerswag says:

I'm pretty sure that in europe/britan phones are sold at full price and there's no contract subsidies so plans are a lot cheaper.
T-Mobile is the only major carrier in the USA that offers those low prices if you bring your phone. Otherwise you're paying a monthly subsidy for a device you already paid for.

Actually in the UK you can get a subsidized device quite easily, but paying more up front lowers the cost of your monthly plan.

bilzkh says:

Not an ideal price, but at least Rogers does support Windows Phone with timely updates. Besides this is the same price as Telus' Lumia 800.

wetworker says:

This is a better price and a way better phone considering I gave them $724.00 after taxes for the Samsung Focus in November of 2010.
Can't wait to get the Lumia 900. W00t!

lorettaboy says:

I'll be buying my at&t branded 900 on eBay, to be used with Rogers. $500 plus shipping will still be a cheaper option!

mythos13 says:

But you will be paying the same monthly rate as you would if you took the phone from Rogers at $100, plus it would Nokia-branded instead of AT&T.

Rogers can go fck themselves, rocking a Nokia n 9 on mobilicity for $25 a month unlimited data text and talk andnever been happier

Nataku4ca says:

man i wish i could do that, my parents live in Langley and apparently there is either no reception or very little for mobilicity

ReV1VeR says:

Does anybody know if it's possible to negotiate the early termination fee with Rogers? I've had a Focus since January 2011 (on a 3 year contract), so I haven't stayed even half of my term. Paying around $300 for early termination and prolonging the contract doesn't seem like a great option considering that you can buy Lumia 900 outright for $550-600 (taxes).
Anyways, cheers to Rogers for carrying the best Windows Phones!

Ticomfreak says:

Just ask them to subsidize the phone and not cancel o think something like that could be worked out.

mrolympia74 says:

To make matters worse. Uts only launching in black. I called Rogers a d Nokia Canada and all they said is that it's launching in black and they don't know anything about a cyan color launch. Im sure it'll eventually launch in cyan but if it's in a month from now then screw it. Ill just get an AT&T branded one. Does anyone have any inside information about the cyan that I don't know about?
