    3 year contracts are just nonsense nowadays! I mean seriously, with all this great technology who would want to stick with a phone for 3 years.

    I find the one year or 18 month contract for being far more reasonable and believable as well :)

  • Btw no need for an internal document.. they announced it officially LOL

    I agree. However, Rogers allows you to do a hardware upgrade without penalty after 24 months meaning that a 3-year contract has nothing to do with hardware, just with guaranteed income. And doing an upgrade at 24 months also means you have to extend your contract to get the best pricing. The only annoying part is if Bell/Telus happened to have a better hardware option…then you’d be stuck with Rogers unless you were lucky enough to be at the end of your contract.

    And now, I am the proud sorta-owner of a new Xperia arc. It’s on my account, but it’s not in my possession. The spouse needed a new phone more than I did.
