Rogers also offering Lumia 900 customers $100 on their bill for their troubles

WP Central

Good news for those with Lumia 900s on Canadian carrier Rogers as an employee has confirmed that affected customers will see $100 credit on their bill, much like what AT&T is currently offering. The Lumia 900 has been troubled with a "memory management issue was discovered that could, in some cases, lead to loss of data connectivity", which has affected a number of owners.

AT&T and Nokia are allowing customers to exchange their affected 900 for a new one with the upcoming firmware update already installed, or you can sit tight for April 16th when the update is expected to be pushed out. There's certainly a win-win here with purchasing a Lumia 900 before April 21st, as you'll have a high-end LTE Windows Phone as well as $100 credit. So, really you're being paid to own one.

Those who are on Rogers, you have the exact same deal. You'll be given $100 credit on your bill should you purchase a Lumia 900 before April 21st, and if you're already affected you can either exchange your device for a new one with the firmware installed or sit it out until Monday when the update will hit Zune / Mac Connector.

If I buy the 900 at Walmart for $50, will I still get $100 for my troubles?

jubbing says:

Don't think so but you might want to ask Nokia

ExcaliburII says:

My understanding that it doesn't matter the cost that you pay, as long as it ends up attached to a rogers contract.

Even though their non-LTE coverage is not as good outside the city, I wish I was on Rogers now.

not to ruin anyways parade I also work for rogers in the wireless department (at a corporate office not a store) we have no notice or information that we are doing the 100 credit I talked to a few higher ups which the never heard of us doing it, Contacted our nokia rep he is checking in on it but thinks its  a us only promotion
Also We are running a promotion were if you activate 2 new lines *must be new non hardware upgrades* you get a free 360 with a kinect and the promotion even mentions that the lumia 900 is the best phone with a 360 not to shabby :P
EDIT: Yea it is confirmed that we are giving 100 dollar credit nokia rep stated it but rogers has no information so if you ask the answer is no

ExcaliburII says:

then just spread the word and let the stores know...good way to get the word out if corporate isn't going to do it.
